A week in the life
Bain consultants take on many roles: problem solver, trusted advisor, consensus builder, mentor and coach, results partner. The experiences and challenges they face are exciting, tough, and important. They are constantly stretched, challenged, and asked to move beyond their comfort zone. No two days are ever the same. To get a sense of the variety of assignments they encounter, we asked several consultants to describe a recent week on the job.
"I also had several female friends who had worked at Bain and spoke very highly of the excellent work/life balance."
"Bain had by far the best recruiting process I had experienced."
"I think it's very important that we leverage our abilities and skills for social good as well as for business."
"I believe that Bain's passion for results really differentiates them from other consulting firms. "
"With each new opportunity that is presented to me - whether leading North American recruiting or building a relationship with a new client - I challenge myself and grow as a person."
"I don't know if there is anywhere else where you can get the exposure to such high-level issues and high-level clients so quickly."
