    Sustainability - also not fulfilling after a point

    Advice to Management

    Specialization is the only way consulting can survive as an industry. Keep focusing on people. It's soul sucking job - that's the really big redemption.

    Pros

    Focus on professional development of employees. My function focuses a lot on work life balance and provides lot of flexibility. It also follows a meritocratic approach to compensation and promotions making it a fair process. Bain also provides many industry leading benefits on health and life insurance as well as many opportunities to have fun such as annual office offsites and holiday parties
