      Pros

      - Perks are great - lots of offsites, global trainings and opportunities to spend time with peers builds a great network of friends in the office - Work is incredibly varied, in ~2 years have worked in multiple industries and each project is different - The people are incredibly smart, diverse and fun. The culture in general is amazing! - A lot of Managers / Partners really care about the juniors, they will happily just chat to you about career moves etc. and are generally fairly approachable - Great post-Bain options - Flexibility options can be great - opportunities to live / work abroad, take externships and Leave of Absence - Constant emphasis on improvements in the office, weekly surveys to track satisfaction and changes generally made on the feedback where possible

      Cons

      - Hours are long, often with heavy travel also which can be tough on the work-life balance - Pay in London is significantly below other Bain offices and worse than salaries in other industries that Bainies are qualified for - Flexibility options can be difficult to take, the options for transfers etc are there, but they are more difficult to take than recruiting sells it as

      BCN Senior Associate

      15 Jan 2021 - Senior Associate 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The culture is better than advertised. A lot of room to do what you think is best and grow. For all the cons below, I was incredibly happy in this role and still give it 5 stars. Hopefully they're able to iron out the issues over time.

      Cons

      It's a start up environment as they're building out the BCN in the US. You can sometimes feel like you're on an island. Poor job adjusting comp as responsibilities can change quickly. This isn't a 9-5, long work hours.
