    Executive Assistant Approves!

    Pros

    Great leadership, amazing opportunities, intellectually stimulating, outstanding benefits, feels like family.

    Cons

    Nothing to report here - Bain has exceeded my expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I've been an EA for 15+ years and have never felt more included in the company and culture as I have at Bain. Bain cares about everyone (not just the consulting staff) and they prove it every day.

    Pros

    Perfect for fresh college graduates looking for business experience. Work with super smart, highly motivated people in a supportive, fun environment - your colleagues quickly become your best friends. Tackle meaty business issues for headline-making organisations and have a meaningful impact on the solutions and results generated.

    Cons

    Tempo of work can be high, with some intense periods considered par for the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with focusing on people and sustainability.
