      Pros

      Truly inspirational colleagues that you enjoy spending time with. Exposure to a variety of business challenges / industries / companies which quickly builds your business instincts. Bain is the ideal place to launch a successful career in business. The training and mentorship are incredible. Very competitive compensation, and true meritocracy.

      Cons

      Case work often demands regular travel and long working hours.

      BCN Senior Associate

      Pros

      The culture is better than advertised. A lot of room to do what you think is best and grow. For all the cons below, I was incredibly happy in this role and still give it 5 stars. Hopefully they're able to iron out the issues over time.

      Cons

      It's a start up environment as they're building out the BCN in the US. You can sometimes feel like you're on an island. Poor job adjusting comp as responsibilities can change quickly. This isn't a 9-5, long work hours.

      Long hours, friendly people

      Pros

      Comp, learning how to do business stuff, people are exceptionally friendly (it's sort of their thing relative to the other two), and unparalleled access to how executive decisions are made

      Cons

      Hours are long, pressure to provide an answer means sometimes we repackage BS (to be clear, this is a cynic's opinion, 90%+ of the time they really believe they are providing value. Some people just have different epistomologies)
