    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people. Collaborative environment. Support staff that truly supports one another. Benefits. I am blown away by the culture of this company and tremendously proud to be a Bainie. The talent Bain attracts is both notable and impressive. This company demands a lot but also invests in YOU like no other. The environment is progressive and engaging. You have an opportunity to develop and grow here that is allows... you to get as much out of it as you choose to give. Input is sought from all levels.

    Cons

    Demanding work hours. No clear path for administrative support staff to advance.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more telework options for EA/MAs. Give your support staff more flexibility where able and they will continue to give you their all...and some.

    I have been working at Bain & Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people, friendly work environment, treat support staff well both on an individual and institutional level, phenomenal maternity leave policy, flexible hours and schedule for working mothers, great medical benefits, fun and inclusive office activities, convenient office location.

    Cons

    Difficult, lengthy, and needlessly tedious expense system. Limited opportunity for career advancement for senior admin.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in an expense system where credit card purchases are linked and show up automatically in the system. You have hundreds, if not thousands of people doing mass amounts of data entry that really is not necessary. Please consider promoting from within your admin group for research and EA / MA manager positions.

    Thank you for writing a review. It's wonderful to know you have had several mentors who want you to succeed in your role as an Executive Assistant. Our business could not succeed without a strong EA team and all of our excellent Consulting Support Services teams. Thank you for all ...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun culture, a lot of younger people, all employees get to take part in fun activities meant to attract college grads so that's cool. Great group of EAs that support each other and lift each other up.

    Cons

    EA's are an after-thought, even though they keep this place running. Environment can also sometimes be annoying since there are so many young, intelligent people trying to be the next to get ahead. EAs are extremely busy with no thought to balancing desks and the work an EA is being given.

    Advice to Management

    Cherish the great EAs you have and listen to their needs. Be willing to adjust work loads if it means keeping great people on board.
