Why Bain?

Bain was the obvious choice for me: an incredible top firm with a unique culture, a passion for results, and a strong emphasis on professional development. Everyone here is personally interested in helping you succeed and that was very apparent right from the start.

My passion

I love to learn as much as I can. Over the last several years, I've worked in not-for-profit, insurance, telecommunications, consumer packaged goods, gold mining and private equity (just to name a few) on a variety of interesting challenges.

I have many passions outside of Bain as well: traveling, reading, staying physically fit and spending time with friends and family.

My favorite case

One of my favorite cases was a cost and performance benchmarking study for three telecommunications companies in three countries. My role was to compare network architecture and performance metrics across the three carriers and suggest areas for improvement. This case was particularly interesting for me given my background in electrical engineering where I learned about cellular networks. That's one of the great things Bain has to offer: we serve clients in a wide variety of industries. You have the ability to shape your career to do the things you love.

My perspective on diversity at Bain

Bain has an incredible network of strong, successful women who invest in seeing other women excel. Formal and informal mentoring, social women's events, and women's initiatives are just some of the ways to connect with, and learn from amazing role models.

A final thought

If you're thinking about joining a management consulting firm, do your homework: find out which firm's culture suits you best and which one will help you succeed at the things that inspire you.
