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

      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

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

      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.

        Pros

        Good comp, great people, and experience is as promised: fast-paced, high level problem solving, and fairly interesting challenges.

        Cons

        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.
