I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (more than a year)

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Really supportive of any career even if you are leaving Bain. They have great training programs and everyone is very friendly and helpful. They are willing to give a lot of responsibility to even new hires and trust their hiring process

    Cons

    Relatively homogenous culture. Some cases are much busier than others and while on average work hours are pretty reasonable at some weeks hours can be a little long
