I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Bain is an incredible place to start your career out of college and continue to build a career. The learning opportunities are unparalled; over 3 years as an AC/SAC you get incredible exposure and learning. The people are amazing- genuine, inspiring, devoted and caring. The culture is fantastic- fun, supportive. "A Bainie never lets another Bainie fail" is definitely true! Returning as a Consultant post-MBA (with Bain sponsorship) was equally rewarding. As a college senior, I never thought I'd still be at the same firm, but I can't imagine working elsewhere!

Cons

Hours can be long but this is typical of consulting, and the travel options are better than elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    People: Incredibly intelligent, inspiring, fun, teamwork-oriented people
    Work: Lot of exposure to upper management
    Culture: Down-to-earth; never take themselves too seriously; "A Bainie never lets another Bainie fail" culture

    Cons

    Not as international as McKinsey (most cases staffed within the country)
    Although better compared to some other firms in this industry, still long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on this incredible culture.
    Provide more international opportunities

    Cons

    -Long hours - it varies by case, but it can get up to 95 hours if getting close to a big meeting
    -Frequent travel - most cases in the DC office involve travel, but that should be changing as the office grows

    Keep driving the positive culture of the firm, it's what keeps all of us here.
