    Pros

    Great people, good work culture and environment, ability to work on interesting problems in diverse industries

    Long work hours, some petty office politics (but nothing major), and requirements to travel often across cities

    Keep doing what you've been doing and get India closer to the global average

    "Typical consulting firm"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Associate Consultant in New Delhi
    Doesn't Recommend
    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!

    Advice to Management

    Need to think of realigning criteria and career path to today's realities. Also need to create specialized roles for people who are good at something (say excel analysis, project management)

    Pros

    - Professional development: People at Bain invests a huge amount of time and effort in growing talent; they are always there to ensure you succeed - Great people & team: A Bainie never lets another Bainie fail! - Unique challenges: Each case is different from the next; there's always something to look forward to

    - Work pace is relatively quick and there is a steep learning curve. However, if you enjoy a challenge, this is a place for you

    Advice to Management

    - Keep the Bain culture alive. I think that is one of Bain's strongest differentiating factor.
