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

    Pros

    1. Meager office perks such as free food. 2. Can't remember anything else

    Cons

    This is the only section that defines how working at BCC is like. The company has the worst kind of ethics related procedure. Nothing is followed according to the ethics provided in the charter but is dependent on the whims and fancies of the group manager and team manager. This entity lures people from the market on the behest of it's respectable parent organization - Bain and company, but it's nothing close to it. I will break it down to discuss the different paradigms. 1. Culture The entity is run by a cartel of group managers and their flatterer(team managers) who do things according to their will without any check. People at senior level are mostly not qualified enough to answer queries on the function they are handling. If they find out that you know more than them, get ready for an egoistic clash and a round of denigration on most of the matters. If you are a lateral, you are in for a ride. I think this is the only company that very strongly differentiates it's hire as laterals or home growns - with most of the benefits going to the homegrowns since they have grown by agreeing to all fancies of the management. They have reviews and analysis by laterals vs homegrowns which definitely all the time makes the laterals feel like an outcast. The easy way to success in the organization boils down to being a bootlicker of the senior management, have no views of your own and never challenge them in terms of knowledge - even though if you know more. If you do the above, you are sure to go places and earn promotion otherwise you might end up in a spot where they continuously find ways to mentally harass you. No respect for a work life balance and I was amazed to see that senior people here most of the times don't have any work and are just passing time in the company - getting complacent with their own inability. The senior management does not have industry knowledge and cannot groom you accordingly- chances are you would know more than them, only exception being if you want to be a master politician and harasser of people. Concerns to the HR are never heard since every news goes out to the senior management who then dictate accordingly. 2. Work In bold letters - This is not a strategy firm. It has all that of tactical work that no one in the industry wants to do and hence is sent to this great place. Working on shards of the complete glass, you never know what the project is talking about. If you have worked in the industry, you are coming to a place that will add aryabhata's zero to your resume. It would get so difficult to define this work outside and you would as well be in a state of demotion - a confidence shattering experience. All manual activities that the bain teams don't want to do are sent for disposal at this place which is definitely not a great motivation. The senior management is even scared to add new avenues as these things don't fall under their comfort level and it's been ages since they have actually worked up on something that would value add or is more relevant in the industry in current times. 3. People Be a flatterer and you rise without any work as well. Be an efficient worker merely keep yourself alive under the scrutiny of the big bosses. The young freshers are quite good and smart, can't say the same about the senior management since they run it more like a shop or their own property. These people live in their own world and deem most of the laterals as culturally unfit - coming from the people who have stayed their entire life here and saying it to people who have actually done meaningful work globally - that's how irony looks.

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

    Pros

    Welcome to Bain. I'm going to give you a problem that neither the CEO nor his entire management team could solve. And I'm probably going to give you lots of different opinions and imperfect data sources. And then I'll ask you to focus in on where the most value is and convince all those people with different opinions that you're right. But don't worry, I'm also going to give you a Bain team. Those associates and consultants are going to be tenacious in coming up with creative approaches. Those managers and partners are going to knock down barriers for you, connect you where you need to be connected, guide, support, direct and re-direct you. The office support staff is going to fix your computer after you spilled coffee on it for the third time, find you the unfindable data source, and smile and hand you a baked good after you ask for help re-doing dozens of slides. You are empowered and accountable but you are not alone. And the best part is you can't fail. Because after all, what all those people are reinforcing is that a Bainie never lets another Bainie fail.

    Cons

    Here's how you know you've made it at Bain. The reward for doing a good job is getting a bigger, tougher problem next time. Meaning, you are always solving the easiest problem you will ever solve again. This takes a lot of resilience and active managing of self-expectations to remember that you are not actually getting worse, the problems are just getting harder. So my advice is to remember that. And then take a second to realize that it would be a lot less fun if the reverse were true. And isn't that precisely why you wanted this job in the first place anyway? It sure was for me.

    Fantastic, smart and incredibly supportive co-workers, top tier clients and interesting problems

    Consulting in general probably has some things you need to consider around travel, work life balance, but it's been better than I expected and completely manageable.
