    I have been working at Bain & Company part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people, friendly work environment, treat support staff well both on an individual and institutional level, phenomenal maternity leave policy, flexible hours and schedule for working mothers, great medical benefits, fun and inclusive office activities, convenient office location.

    Cons

    Difficult, lengthy, and needlessly tedious expense system. Limited opportunity for career advancement for senior admin.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in an expense system where credit card purchases are linked and show up automatically in the system. You have hundreds, if not thousands of people doing mass amounts of data entry that really is not necessary. Please consider promoting from within your admin group for research and EA / MA manager positions.
