Pros

I truly believe there is no better place to start your career than at Bain. At Bain you are given opportunities to work with senior level executives, solve challenging business problems, and spend each day with co-workers who are incredibly talented yet down to earth

Cons

In a professional services firm lifestyle is not always predictable but management does the best they can to plan ahead to reduce issues

Advice to Management

Bain can do a better job providing opportunities for ACs/Consultants to develop more expertise in areas they are passionate about

    Pros

    Fun, great culture. You will form life long bonds with the people you work with.

    Cons

    There is a massive disconnect between consulting and administrative employees. The lack of structure of the admin side makes career advancement a nearly impossible. When an oppurtunity would arise the lack of mentiorship leaves the admin staff with almost no chance of moving forward. The salary level is at least 20% lower than other Boston based jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your talented admin staff.

    Pros

    Bain has a great culture - people you enjoy working with and spending time with outside of work.

    Cons

    We are very tenure-based in promotions. It is a meritocracy, but only within certain broader guidelines for required tenure at certain positions.
