Very stimulating environment
Management Consultant, Chrysler Motors (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: very strong and challenging environment with alot of young bright empkoyees
Cons: alot of travel
Of all my experiance I found Bain to be the most interesting and challenging. The one biggest problem is it is a very intense and demanding environment. There seems to be alot of turnover but I believe that is typical for most consulting companies because this is the nature of the beast

The company really tries create a great work/life balance. As an admin, you dont work once you leave the office - not encouraged or asked to bring home your computer.

the Culture makes you feel apart of the team
Consulting Support Assistant (Current Employee), ChicagoFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: benefits includes good health & dental, as well as 401k plan
Cons: no advancement for my particular position
I have learned a great deal of information as an assistant to Partners and consultants at Bain. Even as part of the support staff team, Bain fills everyone in on the strategic process of gaining clients – more... and the direction it takes its business to help ensure the best quality service. Bain not only works hard, but they play hard as well. Every year their offsite meeting is held at Lake Geneva resort in Wisconsin. My responsibility is to assist the office manager with the up-keeping and functionality of the office. I am responsible for kitchen and office supply inventory. – less
