    I worked at Bain & Company

    Pros

    The company has a moto of "Work Hard Play Hard" and they stand behind it. There are high expectations of employee performance and the rewards for hard work are regular. The company fosters an environment where employees from all departments and level socialize and share their views related to the business. Bain also has a commitment to improving a range of business and career skills for all employees. Employees are provided with all of the tools they need to perform their job, there are almost no questions asked about requests, this fosters a feeling of trust and respect between the employee and the company.

    Cons

    The only con that comes to mind is the lower salary for my position in the industry. The work load and complexity of the work load is much greater then others in the same position yet out pay is lower. Then again Bain seems to attempt to offset the lower pay with more paid socializing events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a goal to encourage and foster mentorship for the young employees within the company. Giving the young employees a chance to learn from the older and experienced employees will open opportunities for the younger employees.

    I have been working at Bain & Company

    Pros

    Client engagements are overall very interesting and focused on the most important issues
    Culture is top rate
    People care about your development

    Cons

    Travel can be draining. Seems to be increasing
    Can't ever be 100% sure that your personal plans will stick
    Premium product offered to clients means there's never room to relax

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being selective about client engagements. Growth at the expense of good people isn't worth it. Thanks for the support!
