    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"

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

    Pros

    Amazing amount of learning, super smart people, strong professional development opportunities. No one signs up for consulting thinking it's going to be a walk in the park. You will work damn hard. The variety that comes with projects means some are stellar and some are rough. But you will learn an incredible amount. And Bain's culture is a mile ahead of any other consulting firms- they put a lot of effort into finding and retaining great people. Can honestly say I never disliked anyone at my time at Bain and that's incredible. Was proud to see Bain take some big steps to confront racial inequality. I hope they've followed through with some of the promises made in June.

    Cons

    Hours, burnout, inconsistency in HR/management. The hours can be really tough long term, which is why most people leave. The best at Bain find their niche and how to balance life and work. Management can depend based on project but overall the company puts a lot of work into developjng managers.
