Pros

Bain has a very strong and inspiring culture instilled into the system which is a guiding light for all employees. Ever year, since 1987, a different city has been hosting the 'Bain World Cup' wherein employees from Bain offices from across the globe come together to participate in sporting events such as Touch Rugby, Volleyball, 6-a-side football and 11-a-side football. The event highlights the strong bond shared by Bain teams (even beyond work) and brings together ~25% of the entire company workforce to celebrate the true spirit of Bain. For sports enthusiasts, this is a top-notch experience.

Cons

It could be hard to fit into another workplace atmosphere once you've worked at Bain!

Advice to Management

Continue giving due importance to the employees as happy employees are more productive employees which ensures client-delight!

    Pros

    Constant high-quality feedback - constantly receiving practical and actionable feedback during and in between review cycles to help one grow

    High-paced environment - Great for those who enjoy working at a constantly high pace, and learning a lot all the time

    Great benefits (formal and informal) - Excellent medical coverage, on top of great compensation, and other perks like company sponsored fun events like Bain World Cup where thousands of Bainies gather for a weekend of sports and social activities.

    Senior leadership are very approachable and transparent.

    Cons

    Competitive environment - not for the faint of heart. You will consistently be challenged and will frequently have doubts about yourself as you are surrounded by incredibly smart and accomplished individuals

    Travel - will be a challenge for people with significant family commitments, but this is nothing unusual for consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the standards of recruiting even as we grow rapidly around the world.

    Be mindful of staffing preferences, especially those with young families.
