    Pros

    For the right enquiring, hard working mind, Bain is an amazing place to work. Great problems to solve, great people to work with, great clients and a great apprenticeship process to reall accelerate talent to its full potential. Over the course of a career, there is real felxibility to get the work - life balance right. If you live for interesting work, this is a great place.

    Cons

    It is hard work, and not everyone has the passion and mental flexibility to make it work. And if you work to live, and want lots of evenings for other interests, this is not the right place for you.
