    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

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

    Pros

    In spite of this anonymous, I can very confidently say that Bain is an excellent place to work within the consulting domain- office culture, genuine employee care, benefits, investment in one's growth, support via mentoring & coaching, non-working weekends, flexible working models- you name it and the company offers it to you. And not just this, most importantly the company is willing to listen to its employees concerns...

    Cons

    No specific con with respect to the company per se; however only thing I would highlight would be for the consulting industry in general- the hours are typically long.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in people like you already do!

    Cons

    Very demanding work hours (70 hour plus weeks are not uncommon, can go up to 100 in the worst case) At any point, ~30% of the projects running in the office are mismanaged - leadership is such that is working on the industry for the first time and hence is clueless about what direction to steer the team in and the team ends up boiling the ocean. This is esp. the case in India where Bain is relatively new and does not...
