I worked at Bain & Company full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Smart, passionate people, who really care about each other and their work
- Very much a culture of "work hard, play hard", with senior partners just as ready to let loose and have fun as the new associate consultants
- Culture focuses on helping each other, and succeeding as a team, yet still acts as a meritocracy for rewarding performance; meritocratic comp becomes more pronounced at more senior levels

Cons

- Long hours are often part of the game at management consulting firms; anecdotally Bain is the best of the top 3, but the whole industry isn't the place for those looking to work 9-to-5
- You will live in PowerPoint. Except when you're living in Excel.
- High pressure, demanding schedule. You may love that, or it may grind you down. Probably both.

    The People. Hands down the people. And the type of work and impact we get to have with our clients. I work on some of the most interesting, cutting edge issues in Healthcare today and look forward to heading into work every morning.

    Cons

    We work hard and we must remain very flexible to serve the needs of our clients.
