Pros

The firm worldwide has a great culture - the people in general are nice, interesting, and fun. There are excellent exit opportunities from any level as the Bain name and consulting skillset is valued in a number of jobs.

Cons

At the end of the day the quality of your experience is very much dictated by which cases you end up working on. If you get stuck on a 6 month case in an industry you don't like or a difficult client, there's not a lot you can do about it. That's true of any consulting job but I think people's experiences vary because of this. If you are unhappy though, Bain is good about making sure your next case meets your needs.

Advice to Management

True high performers at Bain aren't rewarded enough relative to their strong but lower-performing peers. This sometimes incents people to leave.
