    I worked at Bain & Company for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible people - the absolute best people. Amazing culture. Fun company gatherings. Generous benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay. An overwhelming amount of work. And stressful. MAs are pretty much EAs - they do just as much work and therefore deserve better pay.

    Advice to Management

    To hire more staff or pay the Manager Assistants better. For the amount of work they do, it's very low pay.

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

    Pros

    While interviewing at Bain and researching the company I was highly skeptical about the raving reviews. I am happy to report that after working here for ~3 months, I LOVE BAIN - the company values are practiced and seen everyday; the environment is fun, supportive, and interesting; and the people are intelligent, caring, and, for the most part, all wonderful to be around. I hope to be at Bain for many years to come and...

    Cons

    If I had to criticize something, I would say there are a few CSS members who do not necessarily embrace the Bain motto - "A Bainie Never Let's a Bainie Fail". There are only a handful and it really does not influence the overall culture so don't let a few bad seeds steer you away from a truly amazing company!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continued dedication to grow the people, brand, and firm!

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

    Pros

    The sense of community and sense of working together to achieve a shared goal is second to none. Everyone has your back, everyone is there to help. They don't only foster your PD, but help you put all the pieces together to help you better understand what you need to feel you are thriving and happy in your work. Could not think of a better place to begin my career. Their commitment to diversity and inclusion is deep...

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, culture, and people.

    Cons

    Consultant Support Staff (or CSS) is not nearly as valued as consulting staff. Many benefits are given to consulting staff that are not even an option for CSS. Assistants have an extremely large workload and the gap between Manager Assistant and Executive Assistant salaries is vast, even though the roles are essentially the same and Manager Assistants support more executives.

    Advice to Management

    Value all employees at the same level and extend benefits to all employees, regardless of hierarchy.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Bain & Company

      Pros

      - Fun, intelligent, and friendly colleagues - Generous company - A great learning experience - Down-to-earth, approachable management and top tier staff - Great attention to detail as a company -- there is a system in place to take care of everything - An environment that fosters personal and professional growth - In a support staff role, you aren't expected to work after-hours -- no consultant hours

      Cons

      - A sort of "no news is good news" feedback system -- if you don't hear anything bad, you can assume you're doing well. On that same note, everyone is really friendly so a "thank you!" or "great job!" is common as well - Slightly longer hours than the typical 9-5

      Advice to Management

      Continue being loyal to your employees and encouraging/implementing social activities after-hours, as this brings staff closer together, fosters relationships, and makes staff proud to work for such a great company.
