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

Pros

Incredible culture - people work really hard, but they enjoy doing it; Incredible people - mix of intelligence but also humility that you don't find at the other top consulting firms; Amazing exit opportunities - the Bain network is not only big, it's incredibly strong. Ex-Bainies will almost always help out another Bainie without fail. This is truly a remarkable place.

Cons

work life balance - hours can get rough, and travel is not always the most convenient option.

Advice to Management

keep making culture top priority!

Thanks for writing about your experience of working at Bain. I agree, consulting is a challenging career but also very rewarding due to the quick pace of learning and broad range of client projects.
