Firsthand Findings

Employee Reviews

  • “Approach--Bain has always cultivated a ‘results, not reports’ mentality that helps us deliver greater value for clients. Teaming - Bain invests significantly in, and cultivates actively, the ability to team well with clients and internally.”
  • “Bainies are a really talented group of individuals who understand that 1) they are more powerful when they team together, and 2) they are here to make their clients the heroes. This attitude sets our firm apart.”
  • “Consistency. A lot of consulting firms feel like individual fiefdoms where local Partners have autonomy and create major variances in both client service and employee experience. Bain has a high level of coordination from regional and global firm leadership that helps it create a consistent experience. I have now worked across multiple offices. In each, the expectations for teams, performance and client delivery have been the same. From the client perspective, this means they can expect the same great work regardless of where they are and which Partners / teams serve them. From an employee perspective, this greatly reduces the chance of outlying terrible experiences (e.g., being staffed to a role with insufficient preparation, getting relegated only to terrible work).”
  • “How we work with clients is very differentiated, I hear it time and time again from clients. We really collaborate and listen and aim to team with our clients.”
  • “The ability to work with some of the smartest--and most humble--people on earth and learn from it every day.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “Callback process is very efficient, and we aim to finalize it the same day we finish the interviews. We are looking for candidates that have deep and demonstrable problem-solving skills, that can react to feedback and have a creative way of thinking. There is no need to have a business background.”
  • “Definitely recruit with a strong eye towards fit for the culture, and ability to work together and not be competitive with your colleagues.”
  • “Looking for really smart people who communicate well and play well in a team environment (collaborative, fun).  Once you check those core criteria, we value diversity -- so you end up with a great group of people (quite different from each other, but who share that core set of values).”
  • “Seeking a candidate with high intelligence (and ability to develop strong pattern recognition for business situations and problems), highly focused and motivated (given long hours sometimes high degree of intensity), who is also an excellent communicator, likable, and skilled at developing relationships and resolving interpersonal conflict.”
