    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I cannot speak highly enough about working at Bain. Pretty much every week something happens that makes me proud and excited to work with my colleagues. I don't have any other friends who speak so highly about the place they work - and certainly no one who has been there over 10 years!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is day to day lack of flexibility being in client services, but I have found that the long term flexibility in this job more than makes up for it.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work on the toughest and most important business problems for our clients, in a fast paced but supportive environment. You won't find a more thoughtful, intelligent, and humble group of people to work with, and you'll get to team on incredibly interesting work that makes a difference

    Cons

    Client services so your time is at times dictated by clients

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I was able to truly define my own journey during my time at Bain. There is a clear career trajectory in place for consultants, but there is so much flexibility to define your own journey and figure out what you need at different points in time in your life. Incredible mentorship and support at Bain that is unparalleled. I can have such honest and authentic conversations about tough decisions Enjoy going to work each and every day. I love the people I work with and the energy they bring to the job.

    Cons

    Client services can be tough and demanding; however, we are very proactive about empowering people to make decisions that drive balance.

    Amazing learning opportunities across different industries / strategy problems, fantastic people. They really do care about making long-term

    Often spikey hours and your experience can vary based on manager / supervisor (though, these are both the nature of project-based client services work)

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get to work on the toughest challenges, have incredibly impact, learn a ton and do it all with some of the most incredible people I know.

    Client services are always tough, in that schedules can be unpredictable

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Incredible learning opportunities paired with non-stop coaching & mentorship. Everyone at the firm is going to push you until you're uncomfortable, and then some, but will be right behind you every step of the way.

    Cons

    Client services are demanding in general, and Bain is no exception. The travel and hours can be draining.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Top-tier training, learning, and exit opportunities Positive, collaborative, supportive culture Incredibly smart, caring people / teams Consistent advancement opportunities Home office staffing model that leads to far less travel than other firms (and typically better travel when you are on a travel case) Working on very interesting, challenging problems for household name clients

    Cons

    All of the cons are inherent to consulting / client services - think Bain does a fantastic job of managing where possible. That said: Sustainability - the work/life balance is a struggle for a lot of Bainies, from AC through partner Stress - working on big problems isn't easy :) the "constantly steep learning curve" is real. You have the training, the tools, and support, but it's still hard. Travel - M-Th travel is not the norm, but it happens. Not for everyone
