    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bain is a fun and challenging place to work: people are very passionate about their jobs, whether on the consulting side of the business or in other roles. The focus is very much on results - not how many hours you spend at your desk, which is a refreshing change from other workplaces. Management is very inspiring and colleagues really act in a 'one team' mentality.

    Cons

    Very high standards and push to always do more/better. Most of the time it is highly motivating but can occasionally be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    Phenomenal culture with the smartest yet most humble people I have ever encountered in my 15 year career.
    Very strong office leadership, with clear and inspiring mission. Clarity and transparency around leadership strategy and decisions.

    Cons

    The flip side of working with such talented people is there is a constant push to do more / bigger / better. Most of the time this is very motivating (as there is complete belief that you can do more / bigger / better), but can mean you push yourself too hard at times.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn how to think about a business holistically and convert this into practical actions for executives to take.

    Feels like a family, with strong culture of both formal and informal mentor-ship and on-the-job coaching.

    Cons

    Hours can be excessive due to relentless pursuit of perfection. Also hard to predict as often dependent on client, Bain management team and type of project.

    very few cons if you're looking for a competitive career (not a place to relax for a couple of years)
