    Pros

    The client impact here is just very powerful and distinctive. My chance to learn and make a difference is simply unbeatable. My colleagues are wicked smart, wonderfully pragmatic, and humble and fun. It makes our work with client organizations turn into real results and I have built lifelong relationships with clients and Bain teammates alike. This is just a great place to work and build a career.

    Cons

    Pace is full and active but so is any successful professional career. Here you do this with a team that supports you at each turn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your high bar for an exciting culture and team environment. It is what attracts my classmates and teammates and I suspect fuels retention
