I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people you work with are always high quality and geniunely invest in your future.
The local staffing model produces an environment that is more sustainable than other consulting companies I have worked for.
The culture results in a place that is fun to work in and long-lasting relationships inside and outside of the workplace.

Cons

The generalist model certainly has its pros and cons - especially when you join later in your career.
Bain's dominance in the world of private equity can result in some great learnings, but also pretty much requires its employees to take a tour through the demanding Private Equity Group at some point in their career.

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

    Pros

    Bain does amazing work for its clients. The focus is always on delivering results and working collarboratively with the clients. It is very rewarding work.

    The people at Bain are the best. People are supportive and help you develop your career. The combination of making an impact at my clients and working with amazing people make me want to build my career at Bain.

    Cons

    As with all consulting, the hours can be long, so know what you're getting into before choosing a consulting career. Bain is rewarding, both financially and personally, and it takes dediciation to sustain it long term.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to work on & affect game-changing issues for clients in several different industries during my career here. The work itself has been interesting, challenging and pushed me to the next level. While doing this, I have felt incredibly supported. I work with really smart people who care a lot in my success and have gone out of their way to invest in me - both coaching me on skills required to get to the next level here, but also taking time to talk to me about my long-term career goals and what is the best fit next step given my long-term interests (which are outside of Bain). I've also had a chance to take advantage of the some of the flexibility here including doing an externship with a non-profit, working 60-80% and taking a sudden leave during a family crisis. Bain has been incredibly supportive every step of the way.

    Cons

    The consulting lifestyle can be challenging given client demands and there is definitely a ramp-up period to figuring out how to work effectively and in a style that works best for you. But anyone pursuing a career in professional services should expect to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in great leadership - the leadership sets the tone for the whole office and, in my opinion, is exceptional in the office that I work - from the office head down through the partner and manager team. While my long-term goals might not have me in consulting, I would be honored & really enjoy being part of the leadership team in this office.
