Pros

1) Develop unique 1-on-1 relationship with supervisor and supervisee: the mentoring and learning opportunities are amazing and working so closely with down to earth, smart and fun people is very humbling
2) Develop great group relationship: Bain promotes an amazing "family-like" culture. Most people really live up to the moto "A Bainie will never let another Bainie fail"

Cons

Demanding work and respect for other team members often lead to a will to over deliver. It's on us to remain ourselves that work-life balance is a priority.

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, fun place to work - 800 people showed up for our global soccer tournament in Dallas- how many companies would 40 Australians show up for a weekend soccer tournament in Dallas?
    Best job for people straight out of undergrad- really launches your career and gives you a broad business prospective
    Senior leadership take a vested interest in associates
    Lots of opportunities to do non-profit work including volunteering consulting teams
    Opportunity to transfer to another office in your 3rd year for six months

    Cons

    Strong face time culture, lots of variability in hours because of client service industry

    Advice to Management

    Continue work on sustainability- I think this drives better results for our clients since teams have to focus on the answer

    Pros

    Geting the opportunity to help businesses tackle their biggest problems is exciting, and I genuinely like the people that I work with. Robust feedback systems make sure that you are constantly developing as a professional, and although you may not be comfortable, you are always learning.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours with no clearly visible payoff - it makes it worth it when you see the effect you are having on clients, though.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware the shifting value proposition to staying beyond a few years - make sure your employees feel that staying can be a good decision.
