Pros

More variety in staffing than at peers, always being pushed to the next level, strong friendships and mentorships across all levels of the organization, management works very hard to address issues

Cons

While Bain has made efforts to moderate the downsides of consulting as an industry, they're still there. Like in any client service industry, there can be last-minute requests, difficult client relationships and crush periods, as well as the usual travel lifestyle. I do feel like Bain does a good job of managing these to the highest extent possible, but they're still a fact of life.

    Pros

    -Intense focus on professional development, for both a future in and outside of Bain
    -Amazing friendly and social atmosphere/culture
    -Opportunity to work on the most challenging questions and most leveraged issues companies face
    -Office transfer and externship program make it easy to explore other opportunities geographically or in other industries
    -Focus on sustainable work/life balance (doesn't always work out, but the effort and processes in place clearly show that it's a priority)
    -Accessibility of partner group
    -Travel limited to situations/cases where it's useful (not every case requires travel)
    -Generalist approach allows for diversity of experiences, but still opportunities to specialize

    Cons

    Not your normal 9-5 job - can be intense at times
    Like other consulting firms, relatively high turnover compared to industry
    Some of the bigger offices have reached size where it's difficult to know everyone in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue focusing on culture

    Pros

    - great culture and outstanding people
    - flexibility and support
    - focus on actionable results for the client and working with the client as their company was our own

    Cons

    - all downsides of Bain are downsides of consulting - some unpredictability, some travel (although not as much as potentially some other consulting firms)
