    I worked at Bain & Company as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Approachable 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.

    Cons

    There 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.
