Very much productive

People are generally very much emphasized on how efficient they are in terms of overall project management. If you wish to learn on how to work efficiently, then this is it.

Overall pretty good, very intense

The work can be stressful at times and culture has been declining recently. Budget cuts have reduced fun budgets so there is less opportunity to take breaks between tasks which can lead to burnout.

Fun place to work, long hours

Bain is overall a great place to work, with fun people and a supportive environment. However, the hours can be very long and intense so you really have to set clear boundaries

Hard work but close knit

You work hard but create lifelong bonds. Great learning. Up or out culture means you are expendable but I guess that comes with the environment. Loved it and hated it.

Great workplace

Really fun workplace with collaborative culture. Can result in long hours but you are well compensated to make up for it. Project based work enables lots of relationship building

Great job and place to work!

I absolutely loved working at Bain. It’s a work hard, play hard culture and you learn so much and have so much fun along the way. Working with some of the smartest people I have ever met truly helped push me to work harder and strive for more. I couldn’t recommend Bain more as a company

Career Accelerator

Working at Bain & Company has been an incredible experience for me. From day one, I have felt supported and valued by my colleagues and superiors. The culture at Bain is one of collaboration, where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and perspectives, and to work together to solve complex business problems.One of the things I appreciate most about working at Bain is the emphasis on personal and professional development. Bain invests heavily in its employees, providing world-class training and development opportunities that help us grow both personally and professionally. This focus on development is a key reason why many people choose to stay at Bain for their entire careers.

Great place to work, with supportive team members

Really enjoyed my summer experience here. It was a great place to intern, as a full-time MBA student. There is a reason that Bain is consistently ranked at the top consulting firm to work at by Vault!

Grueling, a bit homogenous, but gained so many friends and great career opportunities after

I worked for Bain about seven years ago, and I’m writing this review to gain access to indeed. So, take my comments with a grain of salt. I truly enjoyed my work about 50% of the time, the other 50% of the time felt it was a bit dull and/or I did not connect while with my teammates. They provided incredible training that has served me very well in my career, and I know that many of the opportunities I’ve had are likely due to having this company on my résumé. I also made a surprising number of lifelong friends, considering that I felt like I didn’t fit in perfectly with the culture. I think there are a lot of interesting stories they tell, like one year at Bain being equivalent to three years externally, and I’m not sure how true these really are versus a tactic to keep people at the company. From what I’ve observed, all who leave do extremely well at their new employers, and are often promoted or hired to impressive positions earlier than you would expect. For example, I was in senior management at a start up with other folks from Bain, and we were all at the same level, despite having left the consulting firm at pretty different levels. So, if you end up working here, don’t take all the propaganda at face value!

Love this company!

Focused on company culture. They value employees. Support professional and personal growth. Benefits COMPLETELY covered - zero cost to me. Always snacks. SWAG..such as Allbirds. Always encourage and protect PTO. Our team genuinely likes hanging out with each other. We all truly want to see each other succeed. A Bainie never lets another bainie fail. Literally cannot think of any cons. This is the best company I have EVER worked for.

Work/life balance

Great benefits. Amazing people, stellar work/life balance. Training could be a little more consistent, but overall I feel like I lucked out getting a job here. Really perfect for the working mom.

Great place to learn

Bain is a fantastic place to start a career, you will learn plenty of hard skills and get to interact with senior management at the clients. Would recommend to anyone who is okay with a job with more hours than average.
