Pros

There's an incredible amount of attention given to professional development, level of satisfaction with your work, your own personal and professional goals, and so on. But there's also a huge emphasis on company and office culture - the partners work hard to make this a place you *want* to be, because you actually enjoy it.

Cons

The hours can be daunting, and some of the actual day-to-day work (read: the work of consultants) is not hugely inspiring. Running surveys and mining data for insights is exciting for some people.. but not all people. Also, while the culture is fantastic in some offices, it is still in development stages in others - especially the newer ones.

Advice to Management

Experience sharing across offices to make Bain a *universally* enjoyable environment

    Pros

    Bain is a place with a wonderful and strong culture, a strong focus on professional development, and a real drive toward delivery of results for the client

    Cons

    As with any consulting firm, you will face consulting hours and difficult travel at times. The promotions can be somewhat slow for type-a's, but generally still fast paced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to re-inforce the culture. It is what makes Bain stand out from the consulting norm.
