    I have been working at Bain Capital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    great learning environment, supportive team structure, ever a dull moment in my 9 years here; I always tell people that here is where you learn to play a bigger role elsewhere.

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    use technology to transform operation first. Break unnecessary walls. Cut unnecessary staff.

    Summer Analyst, Private Equity Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain Capital (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first round involved two back to back 30 minute interviews. The interviews were mainly case-based with a few minutes at the very end for me to ask questions. The cases were similar to consulting cases, but with a private equity focus (would you recommend investing in this company? etc). There is a large mental math component (long division, etc).
