Why Bain?

I had already worked in consulting and wanted to join a top-tier firm. I had friends who worked at Bain and I knew that, culturally, it would be an environment that I would enjoy.

My passion

I love the variety that comes with working at Bain. I’m currently learning how to value a business and a market. You can also be entrepreneurial by looking for future growth opportunities and launching new products. And, you never know where in the globe Bain will take you.

Outside of Bain, I am passionate about yoga, cooking, taking photos and travelling.

My favorite case

I like the private equity ringfence, where you are working for different companies and industries every two to three weeks. So far, I’ve looked at cost reduction in beer, wealth management, discount retailing, exhibitions, conferences, premium sportswear and hurricane coastal insurance.

My personal results story

We worked on a two-week diligence where there was very little information on a particular market available. Through a mix of persistence and creative thinking, we managed to understand the market size and future potential and provided our clients with the information they needed.

A final thought

Bain offers a unique opportunity that is virtually unparalleled. It is an incredible place to learn, as you are always improving at a fast pace due to the feedback and development culture. You also get to work alongside smart and friendly people. 

It also offers an incredible array of flexibility options, so during your tenure you can move to another global office or take an externship or time off to pursue a personal project.
