Featured Review

Current Employee - Associate Consultant

I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than a year

Pros

- People (intellectually interesting, hard-working but know how to have fun, friendly and welcoming) - Private Equity: there's no other consultancy (in Europe at least) that come even close to... competing with us on PE - Mentoring / feedback: open, frank discussions, with structures in place to actually make a difference (e.g. weekly case team meetings, personal development chats)

Cons

- Compensation could be higher - Promotion cycles becoming increasingly "fixed" as opposed to meritocratic - Post-strategy opportunities will be more limited than McKinsey or BCG, but then PE... opportunities or life whilst in Consulting is considerably more enjoyable...
