    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great leadership, amazing opportunities, intellectually stimulating, outstanding benefits, feels like family.

    Cons

    Nothing to report here - Bain has exceeded my expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! I've been an EA for 15+ years and have never felt more included in the company and culture as I have at Bain. Bain cares about everyone (not just the consulting staff) and they prove it every day.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Amazing global training program
    - Fantastic culture focused on practical results and supporting each other
    - Big emphasis on giving clients honest advice, independent of what they want to hear
    - Bain is probably the most meritocratic consulting firm (early promotions, salary, etc.)

    Cons

    - Lots of time on the road (traveling) may not suit everyone
    - Intense lifestyle - we often put client needs first
