        Pros

        Compensation including yearly bonus and profit sharing plan. Nice office to work in, get to work with many amazing people. Challenging and fast paced.

        Cons

        Expectation to always be available. Inexperienced and hands off middle management. No clear expectations or upward mobility. Hard work is often ignored.

            Pros

            Great company with excellent facilities and above average benefits. Most people are dedicated and helpful and you'll learn a lot by working on challenging projects.

            Cons

            Beware of joining IT Development. Initial salary and benefits offered would seem much better than any other employer... but take caution. You'll soon find yourself working in impossible situations putting in 2x effort - 24x7 for most of your time with this company. If anyone is thinking of joining then make sure you;re paid at least 75 to 100 percent higher than what the market offers to make your time and efforts...

              Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

              I have been working at Bain Capital full-time

              Pros

              Good salary Great retirement Nice location

              Cons

              If you are Finance or IT you are treated like the help and there is no advancement so I hope you like the job you come it at.

              Advice to Management

              Could you make Shared Services feel like they are important to the firm, because it wouldn’t run without them.
