Cannot think of any, except that Bain is far behind McKinsey and BCG in Greater China area

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training environment: instittionalized professional development systems, with regular chats with supervisor and mentor, formal review after each case, consensus review after every 6 months, global training program every 1.5 years of your tenure on average, local training program every 2-6 months each year (depending on level). Development criteria common across offices.
    Strong culture: true north, results driven, answer-first / hypothesis led approach, etc; culture common across offices, but some variations in work-life balance.
    Strong global network of well-connected offices (and hence opportunities), like 6-month transfers, permanent transfers, on-demand transfers

    Cons

    Sometimes work can be physically very tiring, without creating a lot of value for the client; leadership team's ability to manage client's direction and expectation can vary wildly
    You will not learn/develop too deeply in any technical knowledge or expertise: e.g. financial forcasting and valuation modeling

    Pros

    - High Quality
    - Work-Balance
    - Very Clear Career Path
    - Subsidy for future studies

    Cons

    - Not competitive salary
    - Not very decent welfare package

    Advice to Management

    I think the Bain & Company should increase the wage as well as the welfare package
    and I also think that the company should have a higher efficiency in responding the voice of the employee
