    I worked at Bain & Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bain was a springboard for my next position as a CEO. I believe above all it taught me how to create a company with a success-oriented culture.

    Cons

    Bain only hires the very best people from the very best schools in the world. That means that however smart you are you are always sprinting to meet the Bain standards.

    Advice to Management

    I would focus more on thought leadership. Your two main competitors, McKinsey and BCG, get more than their fair share of awareness because Bain chooses to focus on making its clients successful rather than marketing its own brand.

    Century City is a congested area. Anywhere within 5 mile radius from Century City can still take up to 30 mins to drive to
