  3. "Good learning experience, but tends to be all-encompassing"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Senior Associate Consultant 

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    Learning an effective problem solving toolkit Becoming highly proficient with Excel, PowerPoint, and a variety of other tools High-functioning team environment

    Cons

    Loss of work life balance, despite "Thriving at Bain" framework. Ultimately, you sacrifice your social life. The review system results in an underlying competitiveness between employees, which can foster ill-feelings They thrive off "insecure over achievers" trying to deliver Staffing opportunities often fall far short of promises

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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