    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At all recruiting events, I get asked the question 'what keeps you at Bain' or 'what makes you jump out of bed in the morning'. The answer is really simple - I get to go on a mission each day, to solve the most complex issues with colleagues I admire - and its the teaming on the mission that gives me boundless energy at Bain. Our unique culture of 'one team' is not a slogan ...its every minute of my working day.

    Cons

    We have the ability to take on new challenges, push boundaries but externally in the market, we can seen to be cautious at times....
