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

      Pros

      Culture is a lot more fun and supportive than that of it's competitors. Lots of international training (get sent internationally for training every ~2 years).

      Cons

      Can be a lot of grunt work and slide production at junior levels - as is the case at all consulting firms

      Advice to Management

      Keep up fun culture

        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.

        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

        Advice to Management

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

        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...
