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

    Pros

    1. Brand value 2. Infrastructure 3. Location 4. Work quality

    Cons

    1. Extremely biased towards home grown analysts and biased against lateral hires. In terms of pay and opportunities. 2. The upper management is extremely bureaucratic and favors home grown employees. 3. Employees with no front end experience drive the work streams with a narrow thought process

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change Stop the pay discrimination (Way lesser pay for lateral hires) Stop providing opportunities to only home grown employees The bureaucratic structure you're growing into will make BCN an organization which is slow and boxed up

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Wide exposure. Well recognized brand.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Expect to be around people who live in an echo chamber and who think that just because they work at Bain, they are better than the rest of the world. However, most have disintegrating personal lives or in some cases the complete absence of a personal life altogether.

    Advice to Management

    Greed is good but only to a certain extent.
