What differentiates Bain from other strategy consulting firms was the primary reason that I joined the Bain Strategy Challenge. For me, corporate culture is one of the most important criteria when looking for a job; however, I found it difficult to assess this based on websites or flyers. The Strategy Challenge gives an unique opportunity to have a sneak peek behind the scenes and to really experience the Bain culture.

During the Strategy Challenge, we worked together in small teams in order to crack a real case for KLM. Our solutions were also going to be presented to KLM’s management team, which only made it more exciting! It was four intensive but very fulfilling days: cracking the case, flying to Barcelona, enjoying the night life in Barcelona, enjoying the night life in Amsterdam… and, of course, getting to know a lot of people from Bain!

I decided to join Bain right after the Strategy Challenge of 2014 based on the click I had with the people I met. Their drive for results, down-to-earth mentality, energy and enthusiasm are the main reasons why I decided that Bain was the company I wanted to work for.

Do you also want to get more insight into the life of a strategy consultant and experience the Bain culture first-handed? The Strategy Challenge gives you the perfect chance to get an answer to all your questions and to get to know a lot of Bainees. This all in addition to having a nice trip to Barcelona!
