    Pros

    - The people are exceptional and it feels like a group of your best friends from day one - No business politics due the structure of consulting - Ever changing teams, work, locations; keeps it very interesting - Many financial incentives and programs such as office transfers

    Cons

    - It's not an easy job, in fact, it's very challenging but it fuels rapid personal growth so it's not something you can necessarily detach

    Pros

    Bain is really known for its culture and they invest in it. People are generally fun to work with

    Cons

    Work-life balance is tough as expected in any professional services. Don't always have much choice in choosing projects - often dictated by the office and its location.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forward thinking in investing in new age technology and services like competitors

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
