      Pros

      - Great mentorship and focus on professional development. Everyone you work genuinely wants you to do well. - They invest a lot in you for training. - Great people and culture. Particularly in the Toronto office, it feels very close-knit.

      Cons

      - Long hours and lack of sustainable work/life balance. - Lack of clarity in staffing and opportunities to work in specific industries that you are interested in

      A solid company- you'll learn a lot, you'll give a lot

      Pros

      Amazing amount of learning, super smart people, strong professional development opportunities. No one signs up for consulting thinking it's going to be a walk in the park. You will work damn hard. The variety that comes with projects means some are stellar and some are rough. But you will learn an incredible amount. And Bain's culture is a mile ahead of any other consulting firms- they put a lot of effort into finding and retaining great people. Can honestly say I never disliked anyone at my time at Bain and that's incredible. Was proud to see Bain take some big steps to confront racial inequality. I hope they've followed through with some of the promises made in June.

      Cons

      Hours, burnout, inconsistency in HR/management. The hours can be really tough long term, which is why most people leave. The best at Bain find their niche and how to balance life and work. Management can depend based on project but overall the company puts a lot of work into developjng managers.
