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.
