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

      Pros

      Amazing people, clients, exposure, and training. The best place to develop personally and professionally, and make lifelong friends.

      Cons

      Workload and intensity can vary greatly from week to week, depending on the case. This makes it challenging to develop regular routines. The constant eating out and hotel food makes it challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

      Advice to Management

      Management are awesome. Keep leading the way.

      I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - C-level exposure from the start, exceptional learning opportunities for young professionals - supportive culture, strong focus on coaching

      Cons

      - despite improvements over the last years, 60+ hour work hours are still the norm

      Ruthlessly focus on sustainability, LT is still not sufficiently incentivized to improve case team working hours / happiness

      I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      The company most focused on results and impact of any I have seen. Working with among the brightest and yet humble people in business today. Learn more in a year at Bain, at any level, than I have ever learned anywhere else.

      Yet to find a downside to working at Bain.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing - Bain is unique globally... One day someone will write a best-selling book about this company...

      Pros

      Incredibly talented, diverse and good natured group of peers who genuinely care about you and support your ambitions.

      Cons

      Often long hours with challenging clients. Uncertainty around travel leaves you unable to make long-term commitments (e.g. team sports). Case experience varies drastically.
