Why Bain?

I absolutely love the culture at Bain.  Out of all the consulting firms that I interviewed with, Bain had the friendliest, most approachable people, and I truly enjoy spending time with my co-workers both in and out of the office.  I feel lucky to work with such an intelligent, driven and fun group of people.

My passion

Outside of the office, I love to be outdoors and to work with children - and Bain has been extremely supportive of both!  I'm about to travel to Kenya to work on  Habitat for Humanity Global Village project through Bain, and I've had the opportunity to do a number of community service projects locally as well.  Through BainCares, I'm able to follow my passions alongside my co-workers.

My favorite case

Last summer I worked with an amazing team on a corporate turnaround.  Despite numerous management changes at the client, Bain continued to be hired for ongoing work, which was a true testament to our team's resolve and ability to work well with the client.  As the client began to gain traction and increase revenues, it felt great to know that I was a part of that positive change.

My personal results story

At my last client, I was tasked with revamping the incentive compensation system.  Prior to the new system, the sales and service people were pitted against each other and, as a result, customer needs were often overlooked.  The new system encouraged teamwork and customer service.  When the incentive system that I created was piloted and then adopted, the difference was clear - customer service went up dramatically, as did employee satisfaction.  It's very rewarding to watch something that I personally designed make a big difference!

My perspective on diversity at Bain

As a woman at Bain, I felt that the firm is incredibly flexible and understanding to my needs.  Not only does Bain strive to hire women, but I've also met countless women at Bain in various positions who are taking advantage of the flexible scheduling while their children are small.  It's very empowering to know that I work for a company that is so supportive to my personal life, both now and in the future.

A final thought

Working at Bain has been an incredibly rewarding experience.  Not only do I love the people I work with, but I feel challenged each and every day.  I've grown a great deal, both personally and professionally, and the opportunities for my future have expanded exponentially.  I couldn't ask for a better place to work.
