Great culture. Great mentorship. Great people.
Long hours, but not an issue if you don't mind. Weekend work is rare though.

Great learning opportunities. Company really values you.
Culture can be too strong - high degree of conformism. Challenging work life balance.

Fantastic range and depth of exposure to industries, functional areas, and business issues. Accelerated access to work directly with senior level managers and the "C-suite" much more quickly than via industry path.
Very long hours and substantial travel. Organization is results-driven but there's some risk of frustration / disillusionment about being an advisor and not really owning the results.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest heavily in training and supporting your people. It's what sets the firm apart.

- Type of work

Good comp, great people, and experience is as promised: fast-paced, high level problem solving, and fairly interesting challenges.
Standard-issue work-life balance difficulties. Smaller offices mean that staffing cannot be as tailored to your preferences - this can be a source of major frustration.
Partner track isn't for everyone and Bain recognizes that. They have great career support teams to help consultants across all levels navigate their careers outside of Bain to make sure that Bain alumni land well post-Bain. For those that want to stay with Bain long term, there are also lots of options to consider whether it's internally facing leadership roles, externships, temporary office transfers, etc. There is no one size fits all employee at Bain.
Low on politics. Great people.
Some find the hors to be long and the travel schedule depending on where your clients are can be challenging.
Fast paced and dynamic environment
hours can be quite long

Truly inspirational colleagues that you enjoy spending time with.
Exposure to a variety of business challenges / industries / companies which quickly builds your business instincts. Bain is the ideal place to launch a successful career in business.
The training and mentorship are incredible.
Very competitive compensation, and true meritocracy.
Case work often demands regular travel and long working hours.

The most outgoing, challenging, supportive, exciting, fast-paced, motivating work environment I've ever seen.
The hours can be intense and the travel can be a drawback
Advice to Management
People are the key to our success. Keep recruiting and retaining the best people in the industry!

Always challenged, important problems, great people
Need to figure out how to make work-life balance work on an individual basis. Once you figure it out, it can be sustainable.
