    Best first job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsApproachable team and Partner manager group, Very helpful colleagues, An excellent place to work right out of college. Your social as well as work life will be an upward graph. They follow a great training procedure which helps you in knowing the core values behind the company and prepares you for your work.

    ConsThere is some amount of latent hierarchy which is understandable. Some people might complain of being given too many tasks at a time. If you are a person who manages their time well, this shouldn't be a problem.

    Awesome place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New Delhi

    ProsAs a part of the Shared Services team at Bain, I am a strong promoter. The work culture and work-life balance of teams here is much better than the other organizations I have worked with. Employees feel valued and broad based benefits that are provided here are great. Most importantly, working at Bain is FUN :)

    ConsI think the biggest challenge for shared-services employees is career progression and lack of a defined career path. A structured performance based growth plan is missing for most shared services teams.

    Coordinator (Current Employee) Delhi

    ProsLearning scope, Work enviornment, People who invests in your development, work and life balance and last but not least the fun time/party time.

    ConsWell maintaining office time here in India office and then getting back to the calls for projects in the evening... kind of at times kilss the whole day. Practically one would be working whole day.

    Amazing workplace with stellar exit options

    Case Team Leader (Former Employee) Mumbai

    ProsBain is the best place to work as a young professional interested in learning about business in a holistic way -- from the nuts and bolts of getting organisations moving towards a goal and implementing a program to defining the overall strategic direction for any/every type of corporation.

    The culture at Bain is also truly exceptional -- rewarding, meritocratic and collegiate all at the same time.

    ConsLong work hours. In some cases/projects, can be very long, extending upwards of 100 hours a week.

    Smart, results-driven, people-friendly

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIncredibly smart yet warm and accessible leadership team
    Great brand; one that will open doors for you well into the future
    Rapidly rising responsibilities and opportunities for professional development, with strong internal support system
    Excellent skills development for future entrepreneurs
    Strong alumni network

    ConsUneven growth/development across offices; some work incredibly long hours with comparatively less personal satisfaction (e.g. Asian offices)
    Occasionally do not communicate hard messages strongly enough to employees given the firm's culture of being "nice" and "supportive"

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
