Interesting work and a great peer group. Ample growth opportunities and collaboration with clients and teams worldwide. Diverse and open culture. Average pay and leadership is sub-par in BCN

Fun workplace, but limited growth opportunities within BCN

Great place to work overall, fantastic learning at early stage of career but with a risk of stagnation at mid-junior level, often a great place to begin your career as a stepping stone

Fun workplace with good perks and great opportunities but below industry standard pay

The work at bain provides good opportunities to test, apply and upgrade your skills. They have really one of the best work culture with rarely stretched days. The company also provides with medical & life insurance benefits along with food and late night cabs, however when it comes to compensation, the pay structure is not good and falls below industry standards


Free lunches, work culture


Underpaid jobs

Great work life balance

Great firm and people to work alongside. Good work life balance. Perks can be improved though. Not a client facing role but it does give you exposure in consulting projects.

Fun place to work

No salary equality. Poor performance review management. NO work life balance. SHould look to improve culture. Some people are smart some are dumb. Managers dont bother about the growth of employees

Great culture but tough and unproductive workhours

Consulting is useless. There is a lot of manipulation of words and data to arrive to a desirable answer. The work is hard but no real value add. If all management consulting firms vanished the world will not miss them.


Good culture


No work life balance

Limited growth in the role

Worked in the PPK department and the work is not that great, You are just sanitizing or disguising th slides, no use of brain. The management is also not great

Great work, great people

Bain is a great place to work. You get to work with some of the leading clients in the industry and on the most critical and interesting problems for them. The people are fun and the policies are relatively employee friendly. Sustainability is much better than a lot of the other major management consulting firms.

Best place to work

Bain & Co. is a fantastic employer and is among the best places to work. The work culture is very oriented towards meritocracy and the organization really takes care of its employees. There is a saying that a Bainie never let's another Bainie fail and this saying is true to a great extent.

Productive environment

It stands apart is so many ways, from environment of the office to the very vibes it give. They has the Bain way of doing things which I learnt there and it does gives you an edge wherever you go next as you have already developed an ethic so strong.

Amazing work culture

The company stands true to it's One Bain principle. Lot of investment is done on resources. You are highly appreciated for smallest of your work. Since a lot of screening is involved in intaking a resource, Bain has one of the best resources in the market. The company is flat on hierarchy which you dont get to see often it other MNCs. The company focuses a lot on their net promoter score which they take in as a survey from their own employees and try to work upon the points they are low on throughout the year. NO DOUBT it is one of the most employer friendly companies in the world


great work culture, lots of parties, international and national offsites, equal treatment to all team members, free breakfast, resources are selected after lot of screening therefore best in industry


Salary is less as compared to what market is offering
