    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Excellent work culture and good people to work with - Great learning opportunity to understand industries and work with industry leaders and leading companies across sectors - Great for resume for future jobs

    Cons

    - Lots of travel, long term sustainability is difficult - Work hours can be long, especially around steering committee meetings / PE cases etc. - Mainly focus on strategy not actually building a product / service / business so learning can get limited after a while

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

    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. Great flex options offered by Bain including transfers, externships, leave of absence for 2-6 months etc. There is also an immense global exposure through trainings and transfers. 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.

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

    Pros

    The culture, in my opinion is the biggest differentiator for Bain, which is consistent not only among people in the local office, but also among all of the global offices.

    Cons

    Frankly, can't think of any glaring downsides of working at Bain. The hours can get slightly long on certain cases, but for someone just starting out their career, I doubt you can find a place that can guarantee consistent working hours.

    Pros

    Great exposure to multiple industries. Constant focus on your professional growth and development. Working in extraordinary teams on projects with high impact helps justify the long hours

    Cons

    The hours are long, especially when you are working for Private Equity clients. The attrition rate, though lower than BCG or McKinsey, is still high- and goes to show the nature of the consulting industry

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good brand name which can help the career and in finding good opportunities Great people - most smart and highly motivated

    Cons

    Rigid structure - need to follow the development plan and career path laid out by the firm. Also the skills required at all levels are different, so someone who is a great analyst will not make a good manager!
