Worthwhile, but not as good as advertised.

Pros

People are really fun. It's a laidback, fun atmosphere. The culture is very collegial and people enjoy being around each other.

Cons

The work can be dull, and you find yourself wondering what you're actually doing for companies. It can be frustrating at times.

    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.

    Pros

    -the best culture I can imagine
    -travel is so much less than competition
    -people above you actually care about you and the person you are, not just the work you do
    -everyone in the office is so helpful. Always

    Cons

    -hours can be long, but come on, you're a consultant, and they are really not that bad
    -sometimes stress can get high around deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't let anything happen to the great culture we have
