Approves of CEO

I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Strong culture, objective, very fair, rewards performance, offers immense flexibility, focus on mentor shop and coaching and servant leadership. Best place to work.

Cons

Very few if you want to have a career in advisory services. Travel could be unrelenting but that is an industry issue.

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

    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

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving sustainability and increase the value proposition in London
