After a 2-month internship at Bain, it was an easy decision to return full-time. Bain sets you up for success with a well-entrenched mentorship program and strong coaching culture. It is impressive to see the personal interest my case managers and partners have in my professional development. In the office, you're also surrounded by very smart and fun peers - some certainly become friends for life!
At Bain, I take an interest in our recruiting efforts, helping to lead receptions and workshops for potential candidates. I enjoy travelling and am passionate about all things related to commercial aviation. Seeing the world is something you get to do at Bain quite a bit with cross-office staffing and global training sessions!
My personal results story
On a recent case, it took quite a while to gain credibility with a senior client. Initially, he only interfaced with our case manager. A couple of months into the case, I was working on a detail-oriented module that he was very interested in. Out of the blue, he turned to me during a meeting and asked "what do you think of this issue?" It was a real breakthrough and it's amazing to witness first-hand your thoughts and work being valued and having an impact on the clients.
A final thought
A career in consulting continuously challenges you. You are presented with different industries and client situations all the time. This exposure and the various responsibilities you are given allow you to grow very quickly in a multitude of ways. At Bain you are always learning, whether it be sharpening your analytical skills, conducting an effective workshop with clients, presenting effectively to senior management or managing a junior team member.
Where Bain's proposition is particularly compelling is its attention on work-life balance, the great people we have at Bain are focused on your professional development and a drive towards achieving results. Bain should be a top consideration if you are keen on a consulting career.
