    Pros

    The work: Working on some incredibly interesting problems, with incredibly smart people is exhilarating. From driving forward AI in cars, to driving sustainability in farming and agriculture. The people: Imagine picking some of the nicest, most intelligent people in a workplace, and then having an entire company made out of those people. Everyone loves to have fun, and goes the extra mile to make sure work can be fun. The perks: Bain will take care of you. They'll make a lot of nuisances in life go away.

    Cons

    Monday morning to Friday afternoon, Bain owns your life. Depending on the project, this can mean going home at 5-6pm everyday, but it can also mean long hours, stress, and tons of unpredictability.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency around decisions can often help consultants and associates see the big picture.
