      BCN Senior Associate

      Jan 15, 2021 - Senior Associate 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The culture is better than advertised. A lot of room to do what you think is best and grow. For all the cons below, I was incredibly happy in this role and still give it 5 stars. Hopefully they're able to iron out the issues over time.

      Cons

      It's a start up environment as they're building out the BCN in the US. You can sometimes feel like you're on an island. Poor job adjusting comp as responsibilities can change quickly. This isn't a 9-5, long work hours.

      Long hours, friendly people

      Jan 11, 2021 - Manager in San Francisco, CA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Comp, learning how to do business stuff, people are exceptionally friendly (it's sort of their thing relative to the other two), and unparalleled access to how executive decisions are made

      Cons

      Hours are long, pressure to provide an answer means sometimes we repackage BS (to be clear, this is a cynic's opinion, 90%+ of the time they really believe they are providing value. Some people just have different epistomologies)

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Environment where you're surrounded by smart people from all over the world and from all kinds of background - Huge variation in the types of work you do, allowing you to constantly learn new things and never get bored - Big mentorship culture that promotes open and honest feedback to allow everyone to reach their max potential - Informal culture where colleagues feel more like friends (I hang out with classmates pretty much every weekend)

      Cons

      - Hours are long and work can definitely be stressful

      Great place to work

      Dec 14, 2018 - Consultant in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Bain truly cares about the people that work there, and about building a supportive community. This ends up being a cycle where people who care about mentorship, community, etc, continue to select Bain over other firms, and the culture gets stronger and stronger. Great place to learn, constantly challenged, good comp.

      Cons

      A feature of professional services in general, is that the hours are long. Within premium management consulting, I feel Bain Bain leads the pack in sustainability. The company has methods for achieving sustainability for employees, but nonetheless everyone at Bain has a long week here and there.
