    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (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...

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Applied online, completed online test and was invited to interview at their London office. 3 separate interviews, one competency (how would you act in this situation/demonstrate a time you've shown a skill), one market sizing and one case studies. All interviewers very friendly but not easy to build a rapport.
