Our unique traditions

We have some unique traditions that include optional after-work activities and groups that focus on charity work, sports and artistic pursuits. Should you join our teams, you'll be welcome to get involved from day one!

The Bain World Cup

Football (soccer) is a global sport and, since Bain is a global company, each year since 1987 a different city has hosted a Bain World Cup tournament. More than 1,200 employees from around the world volunteer to bring out their inner "Messi" and "Neymar" during a three-day competition.

Competitors from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas create jerseys, practice and prepare, all in the hope of bringing home the prestigious Bain World Cup. While the primary focus is the tournament itself, Bain World Cup is also about reconnecting with friends and colleagues from around the world, plus having a lot of fun too!

The Bain Band

Do you have a secret (or not-so-secret) musical talent or is The Voice your guilty pleasure?

If so, the Bain Band would totally be for you! Most of our offices have a collection of musicians and singers who regularly practice together and put on performances at our annual summer meetings and at other events throughout the year. They often write their own music and lyrics—not Top 40 stuff, of course, but very appropriate for a Bain audience! It's been a tradition for more than 30 years, and we're always looking for new talent to share the limelight.

Bain Cares Day

Our unique traditions_Bain Cares_530x281

One day every year, each Bain office closes for our employees to partake in voluntary assignments that directly impact their local cities. It's our way of giving back and a great opportunity for our employees to get to know each other and their communities better. These projects can be anything from preparing food at a local homeless shelter to painting schools to clearing brush in a wildlife reserve. Opportunities to get involved don't end on Bain Cares Day. Bain employees are active throughout the year with many social impact projects.
