    ""This opportunity/company is way over-hyped -- a lot of fuss for very meaningless work.""

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

    Pros

    - Ability to get an interview almost anywhere after

    Cons

    - Long hours/always on call for very trivial tasks -- very inefficient work environment
    - Low client interaction at Associate Consultant level
    - Work for a new MBA instead of a more experienced manager or partner
    - I've seen so many people cry at work in < 2 years here and within a year almost everyone wants to quit
    - Cultish environment - the people here are followers not leaders at all
    - People at top (partners) are essentially sales people so a very "salesy" organization

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason this is the #3 consulting firm -- stop having new MBAs from less than top-tier schools manage talented undergrads from top-tier schools. I wish I had interviewed with BCG and McKinsey as they seem to know how to better nurture top talent.

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

    Pros

    Strong culture of mentorship and learning pervades most day-to-day activities. There is a consistent focus to make sure employees are developing the skills they need to succeed.

    Variety of industry coverage and practice area capabilities. Regardless of particular area of interest, chances are the opportunity to work in it will pop up at some point.

    The people, can not emphasize enough how much this impacts the experience

    Cons

    The hours can get a bit long at times, and there is the potential for the experience to vary based on the cases assigned (i.e. working at only one company, vs. working at many)
