    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Great brand name to have on the CV. Quadrupled my salary in 12 months because people aren't aware of how BCN is different from Bain... YET - The new analyst cohort every year used to be good. 'Used to' because they've now started hiring from tier 3 colleges and are as indiscriminate as KPMG/EY when it comes to quality of talent.

    Cons

    - Archaic leadership (GM group), with no real knowledge of any topics they pretend to represent. - Solution to every problem is to throw some money on an off-site. - No employee retention plan. Of course, the robotic leadership isn't equipped to think through any such real world problems. So this isn't really a surprise.

    Former Employee - Associate in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to start career. Nice people.

    Cons

    I realised that I was a frog in a well. I learnt very little other than making basic slides and doing some excel. Repetitive work and blind following of a "culture" felt like I was growing anonymous.
