    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    Some of the most talented people around and the marketing story is real - there is a true focus on results and making sure recommendations can be implemented and deliver real value. While there are a variety of personalities at all the consulting firms, Bain under-indexes on "tough" personalities that people are trying to avoid working with, which is where you really feel the "people" difference at Bain.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is tough as is the case with any consulting firm, and there's a fairly strong bias toward former AC's at the Consultant (post-MBA) level. Coming in new from business school, you'll feel "behind" the former AC's, which is a challenging gap to close as they will tend to get accelerated opportunities and higher level performers to manage early on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. The firm is fantastic and the client results are amazing.
