Pros

-Intense focus on professional development, for both a future in and outside of Bain
-Amazing friendly and social atmosphere/culture

-Accessibility of partner group
-Travel limited to situations/cases where it's useful (not every case requires travel)
-Generalist approach allows for diversity of experiences, but still opportunities to specialize

Cons

Not your normal 9-5 job - can be intense at times
Like other consulting firms, relatively high turnover compared to industry
Some of the bigger offices have reached size where it's difficult to know everyone in the office

Advice to Management

Continue focusing on culture

    Pros

    I am always amazed how flexible Bain management will be to accomodate personal needs. Time off, or reducing travel or different staffing. It feels like they really care about me as a person.

    Cons

    We are on the road a lot...this is a hard job.

    Advice to Management

    We do a good job with providing externships, but I think we coule even offer more externships...not just for SACs, but for all levels.
