I have been working at Bain & Company

Pros

Bain is truly an amazing firm - the people are some of the brightest, kindest, and most fun I have ever met.

Cons

It can be a bit unforgiving and overwhelming if you aren't a strong performer. But there is lots of coaching to help you "get it".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please get rid of on-site travel 4 days/week. It is expensive for the client, demoralizing for the team, and does not add incremental value beyond the first two weeks (to meet the client) and then again for presentations. If needed, partners and senior managers should "take the hit" of travel more than ACs and Consultants. In the world of videoconferencing, it is better for sanity and cost to stay near home office.

    I have been working at Bain & Company

    Pros

    Great culture, very helpful colleagues, challenging work, excellent social atmosphere - your colleagues are also friends. Not at all competitive within your start group - I honestly have no idea who is at the top or bottom of the group.

    Cons

    The hours can vary dramatically - some 'lifestyle cases' are really only 45 hours a week or so, whereas the worst cases can peak at 100 (though rarely for more than a week). Average is probably in the 55-60 range.
