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

    Pros

    Supportive managers Great professional development Wide opportunities apart from case work Pamper you with social events

    Cons

    Now in expansion phase so hiring some industry hires who are not Bain-fit May be losing its cool culture due to the high expansion of FTEs

    Advice to Management

    Hire from good colleges only Do not limit to IITs/IIMs only but good colleges in Mumbai and Delhi as well Dont lose culture at the expense of India expansion

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Focus on professional development of employees. My function focuses a lot on work life balance and provides lot of flexibility. It also follows a meritocratic approach to compensation and promotions making it a fair process. Bain also provides many industry leading benefits on health and life insurance as well as many opportunities to have fun such as annual office offsites and holiday parties

    Cons

    No concerns as of now

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

    Pros

    Incredibly smart yet warm and accessible leadership team Great brand; one that will open doors for you well into the future Rapidly rising responsibilities and opportunities for professional development, with strong internal support system Excellent skills development for future entrepreneurs Strong alumni network

    Cons

    Uneven growth/development across offices; some work incredibly long hours with comparatively less personal satisfaction (e.g. Asian offices) Occasionally do not communicate hard messages strongly enough to employees given the firm's culture of being "nice" and "supportive"
