    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Meager office perks such as free food. 2. Can't remember anything else

    Cons

    This is the only section that defines how working at BCC is like. The company has the worst kind of ethics related procedure. Nothing is followed according to the ethics provided in the charter but is dependent on the whims and fancies of the group manager and team manager. This entity lures people from the market on the behest of it's respectable parent organization - Bain and company, but it's nothing close to it....

    Advice to Management

    I would like to bring to notice of the higher management which sits out of US to look into the ways BCC is running and have more control and follow procedures as how it is done in Bain and company globally. The crowd till mid senior level is not happy with the way things are running unchecked.

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

    Pros

    Good exposure to a variety of industries Can learn to understand how a business works very quickly Learn to deliver in crunched situations Gain confidence presenting before senior partners/clients Smart, motivated, friendly colleagues Great global trainings and offsites Largely fair review system although much more socialist than BCG/Mck (% outperformers are much less compared to these firms) Airline miles and...

    Cons

    Very demanding work hours (70 hour plus weeks are not uncommon, can go up to 100 in the worst case) At any point, ~30% of the projects running in the office are mismanaged - leadership is such that is working on the industry for the first time and hence is clueless about what direction to steer the team in and the team ends up boiling the ocean. This is esp. the case in India where Bain is relatively new and does not...

    Pros

    1. Fun and really smart people to work with 2. Work doesn't become monotonous as you work on multiple industries and capabilities 3. Good salary and fast growth

    Cons

    1. Extremely long work hours (Minimum 13 hrs every day, can go up to 14-15 on an average) - very limited management focus to improve work life balance, all lip service and frameworks but no real action 2. Ratings and promotions can feel perception driven - if you don't gel well with your manager, ratings can go down instantaneously 3. Extreme focus on fancy powerpoints and...

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

    Pros

    - Good work environment - Good salary - Good work life balance in non-consulting teams

    Cons

    - Need to be proactive for your career development. In consulting, the roles and paths are defined. In non-consulting roles, that is not there and you need make sure that you are doing enough and new things for your career development, - You are part of the support team so you are not felt as important - Learning opportunities are lesser as compared to smaller and unstructured firms
