    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Learn a ton, work on clients' most important problems, gain the 'consultant toolkit', awesome exit opportunities no matter what you want to do, great people who care a ton about helping you succeed

    Cons

    Work can become very process oriented and feel less impactful at times. Sometimes too little effort is put into fully understanding industry and company context. Culture can be a little overbearing (e.g. pressure to have all three meals together every day).

    Advice to Management

    Improve industry expertise so that teams can have better understanding of the client's industry on day 1 and throughout case


  2. Helpful (7)

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

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
