    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting work, intelligent colleagues, fantastic professional development

    Cons

    Difficult hours (to be expected in consulting), but above all management needs to reemphasize zero-tolerance policy towards hate speech and bias, and act accordingly. Won’t go into detail, but certain language and opinions espoused by employees (even if it’s behind closed doors or online) really shouldn’t be tolerated at a place that touts diversity like Bain.

    We have a long standing policy of non-discrimination and zero tolerance for hate speech, consistent with our operating principles. We thoroughly investigate any allegations raised by an employee and take appropriate action. In addition, we are committed to furthering a culture of inclusion, and are engaged in proactive training and dialogue with our leadership team toward that aspiration. I encourage you to contact your office head, HR Partner or HR Manager, any senior leader in our human capital team or to me to discuss your concerns.
