    Pros

    London is a fantastic office - big enough to have a LOT going on, lots of projects, great flow of people coming in and out the business (transfers etc) and social stuff but a very supportive and mission driven culture where they encourage everyone to thrive.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, can sometimes feel a bit relentless!

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

    Pros

    Fantastic culture and genuine desire by almost everyone I meet to help each other out. Given how many intelligent and ambitious people there are, there is very little arrogance across the firm.

    Most managers I have worked with will work diligently to keep sustainability a key pillar of a project. It doesn't always work out given client needs or demands but the intent is there.

    Cons

    The London office is particularly big so it can be difficult to meaningfully know a good portion of the office.

    Advice to Management

    As much as I love London and the London office, it's sometimes difficult to not be tempted by the thought of transferring. Compensation, on a city cost-adjusted basis, is not as high as you would expect it to be for a premier consultancy.
