    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Best place to learn: structured thinking, get to know most important trends in any industry, learn how to drive change at orgs and how execs think, learn how to manage teams with great professional development tools, build sweet decks and learn how to model - Build network: particularly if you're staying in same geography, broader Bain network can enable you to do almost anything - Growth trajectory: Bain continues...

    Cons

    - We constantly push really hard - hours aren't as long as some other consulting firms, but that's made possible through ruthless prioritization. It's not the kind of job where you can just write off a day - Hourglass team structure - more than competitors, we put so much on the manager position

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to do everything possible to win top majority of cross-offers with McK, BCG - Offer clients more flexibility in team structure (less M+4)

    I have been working at Bain & Company

    Pros

    Great place to build a business career. It provides opportunities and experiences well beyond what you can get in corporate positions.

    Cons

    There is very little to say in terms of cons at Bain. Only caveat would be if you know exactly what you want to do in a specialized role, Bain's learnings are more general.

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

    Pros

    I've been working at Bain for just over five years now (excluding breaks for school) - consistently challenging and interesting, high quality work, high investment in the people

    Cons

    This job is only rarely a 9 to 5 kind of thing. There's a decent amount of travel (though much less than many competitors) and some unpredictable spikes, as in any client services business

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - and make sure the formula continues to work as well as we grow

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great apprenticeship culture - lots of opportunities for feedback and steady progression of opportunities. As someone who wants to gain broad exposure, particularly earlier in my career, I can't imagine a better place to start. Amazing colleagues to learn from, who foster incredible team culture into a sense of community

    Cons

    Less predictable / controllable hours in client services

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture - camaraderie with colleagues is fantastic - made some lifelong friends! Interesting projects, with lots of room to grow in a structured strategy consulting environment. If you can find the right senior folks to work for, your experience can be awesome.

    Cons

    Projects vary dramatically from one office to another. Work-life balance is difficult to achieve in a sustainable fashion. Travel 4 days per week may work for some, but too much for me. Ability to succeed is dependent on politics, as is the case with most companies. Its just more subtle here.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people and do more than lip service to work-life balance. Soft power and setting examples matters.

    I have been working at Bain & Company

    Pros

    1) Cliche but people and culture. It is very easy to feel connected to your colleagues from across the globe even if you meet them one time. of course like anywhere there are people you will not get along with but more often than not you walk away from your interactions with people feeling uplifted and inspired 2) Continuous professional development. As soon as you reach a plateau you either leave the company or are...

    Cons

    1) Bad work life balance despite efforts to address it. Working in a non US office work life balance can be pretty much non existent 2) High variation among offices in terms of opportunities and inspirational leadership

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on keeping and improving the culture of the company, integrating more non US offices and really pushing the inspirational leadership agenda across the board

    Pros

    Learnt a huge amount: - Great analytical training - Interesting work - Great exposure to clients

    Cons

    The hours can be long - but that's to be expected with any client facing business. It's offset with good pay, great training and amazing culture

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on sustainability and how to take best practices from around the Bain system
