I worked at Bain & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pretty respectful of work-life balance, but can still be long hours at times due to client demands and/or travel.

Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Amazing culture, everyone is so helpful and wants to see you develop professionally. You learn A TON analytically as an Associate Consultant in the first three years that will help you no matter where you go

    Cons

    Lifestyle isn't for everyone long-term, but it's definitely worth it right out of college

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

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

    Pros

    Steep learning curve keeps you on your toes
    Working with some of the best and brightest people
    Good salary and perks like expensing dinner and a cab home
    Friendly cooperative culture
    First class training
    Exposure to different industries
    Rarely if ever asked to work the weekend

    Cons

    House can be quite long (60 average, peaks of 70-75)
    Some cases/projects last 6-12 months and can get boring
    Limited visibility into when work is required on a weekly basis
    Limited visibility into staffing pipeline

    Advice to Management

    Weed out poor mangers more quickly
    More honesty in staffing situation, no need to offer a choice if there is no choice
    Think long term and protect your people - push back against aggressive client demands
