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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The people - the recruiting process is extremely successful in finding the right Bain fit. For some, that's not the right fit, and they likely do not pursue the job (and/or are not given an offer). For others, like myself, it is the most attractive aspect of the firm, and largest differentiator for Bain among its competitors. The work is great, and the clients are all top level, and both of those categories are equal to peer companies. But its the people that make Bain really stand out.

    Cons

    Can have some large peaks and valleys in hours; seemingly more peaks than you would like; travel can wear on you after a while (though Bain does do the best job among companies I've seen in reducing the travel required)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the culture!
