    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    Phenomenal culture with the smartest yet most humble people I have ever encountered in my 15 year career.
    Very strong office leadership, with clear and inspiring mission. Clarity and transparency around leadership strategy and decisions.

    Cons

    The flip side of working with such talented people is there is a constant push to do more / bigger / better. Most of the time this is very motivating (as there is complete belief that you can do more / bigger / better), but can mean you push yourself too hard at times.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Typical top-tier consulting benefits abound - Smart people, impactful problems, variety of industries, expert resources, etc...

    Cons

    The occasional subpar manager / case experience is enough to effectively taint your time at the firm. Staffing can have an outsized impact on your destiny.

    Advice to Management

    There's a fairly thick line between an 'apprenticeship' model and a 'sink or swim' model. Rewarding leadership that view that difference as negligible is both demotivating and hypocritical.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn how to think about a business holistically and convert this into practical actions for executives to take.

    Feels like a family, with strong culture of both formal and informal mentor-ship and on-the-job coaching.

    Cons

    Hours can be excessive due to relentless pursuit of perfection. Also hard to predict as often dependent on client, Bain management team and type of project.
