    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Excellent work culture and good people to work with - Great learning opportunity to understand industries and work with industry leaders and leading companies across sectors - Great for resume for future jobs

    Cons

    - Lots of travel, long term sustainability is difficult - Work hours can be long, especially around steering committee meetings / PE cases etc. - Mainly focus on strategy not actually building a product / service / business so learning can get limited after a while

    Pros

    Great people, mentors in the system invested in your career growth making the culture at Bain the most coveted. There's an active focus by the leadership on improving sustainability. Great flex options offered by Bain including transfers, externships, leave of absence for 2-6 months etc. There is also an immense global exposure through trainings and transfers. All these factors contribute to making Bain the best management...

    Pros

    People are invested in mentorship. Cases are mostly in metro cities. Most people are humble, smart and good to work with

    Cons

    Some of the case work can be drab at times. Some managers/ principals have only moved up by being lifers at Bain. The firm needs to weed out non performers too
