    Pros

    Great people, mentors in the system invested in your career growth making the culture at Bain the most coveted. There's an active focus by the leadership on improving sustainability.

All these factors contribute to making Bain the best management consulting firm to work at!

    Cons

    Sustainability can take a hit at times, but there's an active focus on improving this by the leadership.

    Pros

    Bain has a very strong and inspiring culture instilled into the system which is a guiding light for all employees. Ever year, since 1987, a different city has been hosting the 'Bain World Cup' wherein employees from Bain offices from across the globe come together to participate in sporting events such as Touch Rugby, Volleyball, 6-a-side football and 11-a-side football. The event highlights the strong bond shared by Bain teams (even beyond work) and brings together ~25% of the entire company workforce to celebrate the true spirit of Bain. For sports enthusiasts, this is a top-notch experience.

    Cons

    It could be hard to fit into another workplace atmosphere once you've worked at Bain!

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving due importance to the employees as happy employees are more productive employees which ensures client-delight!
