    I have been working at Bain Capital full-time

    Pros

    The people are so smart and so friendly, I have yet to meet someone who isn't ready and willing to help with any task or question. Great benefits including profit sharing and cash bonus, office facilities have snacks and drinks stocked, barista on staff, and cafeteria is excellent. Great work-life balance, team is always encouraging people to take time off and leave the office on time.

    Cons

    Technology could be a little more integrated/advanced but they're constantly updating and looking to improve. But the IT department was able to get the whole office set up to work remotely in under a month when the COVID-19 WFH order started
