    Pros

    Working at Bain I learned a lot from my colleagues who mentored me and taught me how to do the job. Got to work on very real-life problems with clients in high-stake situations

    Cons

    Hours were long at times, especially in PEG, but overall manageable. Remember to give teams a break and celebrate what makes Bain special

    Great company to learn and build a network

    Jun 22, 2021 - Senior Associate Consultant in London, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - helps build your analytical and project management toolkit - looks great on CV, including years down the line. Recruiters notice. - network is great, arguably beating most universities / MBA programmes

    Cons

    - hours are long (though apparently not as bad as it can get in MBB, and a lot better than IB) - you CAN get stuck in one industry or even one client organisation for a good chunk of your stint at Bain. This feels like a broken promise of 'exposure to many things' - turnover is pretty high. You'll see a lot of your friends leave, which is always sad.
