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

    Pros

    Bain is a great place to work. Everything they tout about themselves is true. You'll work with very smart people, have an amazing learning experience and an accelerated career. You'll be part of interesting projects and be exposed to real challenges from early on.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work/life balance can be really demanding. Specially when you are assigned to a project that is not all that.
    Your experience also highly depends on the manager you work with. All of them are really intelligent, and most of them are great and inspiring, however there are a few that can make your life really harder.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with managers that are able to deliver good or even outstanding results but at the cost of the work/life balance of its team.
    I know sometimes you need to go the extra mile to deliver the best work possible, but there were a few times we'd worked a ton more only to see a tiny improvement in the final work.
