    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    • Multiple opportunities to learn and grow outside of the Executive Assistant role. Whether you are interested in marketing, recruiting, event planning, or other creative outlets, you can truly create your own Bain! • Inspiring and supportive culture where contributions are acknowledged and valued. • Colleagues become family, enriching the experience and giving you a sense of belonging that makes for a fantastic work environment.

    Cons

    Positive strides have been made in the telecommuting policy for support staff in North America. My hope is that this North American policy will become more aligned with the Global support staff policy, where there appears to be more opportunity to work remotely.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people. Collaborative environment. Support staff that truly supports one another. Benefits. I am blown away by the culture of this company and tremendously proud to be a Bainie. The talent Bain attracts is both notable and impressive. This company demands a lot but also invests in YOU like no other. The environment is progressive and engaging. You have an opportunity to develop and grow here that is allows you to get as much out of it as you choose to give. Input is sought from all levels.

    Cons

    Demanding work hours. No clear path for administrative support staff to advance.
