We all know that Bain is a great place to work, but what I still find truly impressive is the collective effort put forth by the employees to make it absolute best.

Why Bain?

Without question: the people. After spending my summer with Bain in 2007 it was clear that this was a fun, smart, and supportive group that I'd want to be a part of.

My passion

I've always been very passionate about sports. I played varsity volleyball throughout University, and still compete regularly with a club team in Toronto. At Bain I thrive on the team atmosphere, similar to that of a sport's team. I take great pride in the way we work together to meet difficult goals and solve tough problems.

My favorite case

Last Fall I had the opportunity to work on a customer strategy for a large national retailer. Over the course of 4 months, we helped them identify their most important customers and put together a roadmap to better serve that group. It was very interesting to see the thinking going on 'behind the scenes' for an organization that is so readily visible in our day to day lives.

My personal results story

After a year at Bain, I've had the opportunity to work on some interesting projects in a variety of industries. On my first case, I drew insights from a nationwide survey which formed the basis of a customer strategy for a national retailer. On the next one, I deployed a survey of North American financial advisors to come up with a forward looking view on financial services distribution. Most recently, I've been working on a strategy overhaul for a global telecom equipment provider.

A final thought

Bain is a great place to get an incredible learning experience while working with a great group of people. Some spend their entire career at Bain while others stay for just a few years, but I've never come across a current or former Bainie that didn't have an overall positive experience.
