Great company to build foundational business skills

Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Fun work hard, play hard culture
- Best business training ground
- Help make real change at clients, not just perform studies

Cons- Lot of hours
- Can be a lot of trouble, although they have improved this quite a bit (office dependent also)
- Up or out meritocracy is good if you're going up, no so much if you are good but just need more time to mature

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the need for some consultants to take more time to make it to the next level, and give it to them

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
