For me the decision came down to the people and the approach, which I have learned go hand-in-hand. The people who choose Bain are motivated, interesting, fun people who care about making a difference. This is reflected in Bain's relentless focus on results and the attention paid to developing its people. In the end I knew I would learn more at Bain than anywhere else.
As a former teacher, I have a passion for education, which is shared by many Bainies. At Bain Chicago I have been able to pursue that passion through involvement with our charter school partner. I recently took over a position on the operating committee which will allow me to work with school leadership to shape Bain involvement in the school through pro bono and extra 10% cases as well as volunteering.
My favorite case
Right now I'm working for a regional wireless telecom company. This is a tough time in this industry, which is rapidly consolidating making it more difficult for smaller players to compete. Our team helped the client make a watershed decision that will lead the company to increased profitability in the future. We are now focused on implementation as well as development of a new strategy for the long term.
My perspective on diversity at Bain
To me diversity is about bringing together different perspectives and ideas, which ultimately will lead to more creative thinking and better outcomes for our clients. The diversity of backgrounds at Bain seems to make us all "non-traditional", which is one of my favorite things about the people here.
A final thought
It's hard for me to envision a better opportunity coming out of business school. Not only will you find challenging, interesting work, you will be surrounded by people who genuinely care about you and your growth as a consultant and as an individual. Bain lives and breathes the mentorship model.
