    Pros

    The people really make the difference at Bain and the companies values align with what I believe a consulting firm should stand for.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not always ideal, but I feel it is better than at other firms and nearly all plans can be realized if you give two weeks notice to your team.

    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!
