Why Bain?

Bain is not only a top consulting firm delivering high-impact solutions for interesting clients, but also provides a great learning environment for my personal development. However, I chose Bain for the ambitious people who are fun to work with.

My passion

For me, drawing insights is the most rewarding part of strategy consulting at Bain. Changing a pile of numbers from surveys, financial company data or market reports into a clear and applicable strategic recommendation really makes you feel valuable.

Outside of the office, I am passionate about learning and experiencing new things, varying from science to sports and from languages to cooking. This willingness to learn is something I see in all Bainies.

My favorite case

So far, I've been on just one case, which was a very valuable experience. Obviously, I learned a lot and made huge progress truly every single day, not only in performing analysis, but also in client skills. I got to meet clients right away and even performed my own interview after just having a couple of months working experience!

My personal results story

Together with a consultant, I analyzed a survey and drew insights from the answers of the respondents. This led to a substantial amount of recommendations and strategic choices, confirmed by the client describing it as "one of the best surveys he'd ever seen."

A final thought

As a starting consultant, don't be afraid to ask questions. Everyone has been there and is more than willing to help!
