A typical perception of a consulting firm's office culture is that it's somewhat traditional—suits, formality and, let's be honest, stuffiness. This is also where Bain is different. We don't wear suits (unless we're meeting clients); in fact, we frequently wear jeans. And most of our offices feature modern designs that encourage collaboration and innovation.
Remote (and in) control
When you're busy, working from local coffee shops, from home or on the road is just fine with us. All consultants are equipped with the latest tech to ensure that they are in control.
Let off steam
Grab a game of Ping-Pong or table football or catch up on the play-offs in our TV rooms. Every office has a place to unwind, so make sure you take advantage!
Welcome to the family
Bain offers generous parental leave for mums and dads plus part-time and job-sharing options for when family, career or personal needs have to be a priority.
Every office has distinct regular traditions such as Ice Cream Fridays, wine tastings, international happy hours and 5k races. And we’re always open to starting more!
Take a break
Need a break or have a bucket-list item you need to check off? "Take Twos” allow eligible Bain employees to take an extended break (typically two months) to fulfill this.
No jacket required
The people wearing a suit and tie in a Bain office are either interviewing or about to visit a client. Individual style is encouraged, so you feel comfortable and at your best.
Our unique home staffing model means that you'll spend a large amount of time in your local office, and we want you to feel at home there. As every week is different, and as you alternate between high-tempo casework and quieter days, there are plenty of opportunities to unwind and socialize.
Need a break or have some downtime? Grab a game of Ping-Pong or catch up on March Madness or Champions League football in our TV rooms. Most of our offices are located in excellent downtown locations, so popping out for a yoga class, going for a run or relaxing in a local park are all readily available options and absolutely encouraged. When you're busy, working from local coffee shops or home—if that's where you're most productive—is fine with us, too.
We also recognize that your priorities can shift as you journey through life, so we offer flexible options to ensure you can have a long-lasting, fulfilling career at Bain. To achieve this, we offer several programs to help you customize your Bain career:
- "Take Two" extended breaks which allows interested and eligible Bain employees to take an extended break (typically two months) to rejuvenate and/or fulfill personal goals.
- Sabbaticals and leaves of absence for when life pulls you in different directions.
- Part-time and job-sharing options for when family, career, or personal needs have to be a priority.
