Veterans at Bain (VABs)

Bain values the unique experiences and perspectives of veterans of the armed forces. It's no wonder we've become the firm of choice for so many talented veterans.



Bain has a distinguished track record of hiring and retaining top veteran talent. For the past five years, Bain's focus on veteran recruitment has resulted in an over 20% annual growth rate in our veteran hires. Currently, VABs membership comprises consultants at all levels throughout our global offices and includes numerous partners.

VABs coordinates a number of activities across Bain's global organization. We share experiences, ideas, successes and challenges with each other on monthly calls; run informational sessions and coaching for veterans interested in a consulting career with Bain; coordinate a mentorship program; organize local office veterans' awareness events and more.

Our People



Some of the reasons that veterans have found Bain a great place to work:

  • We enjoy a strong sense of camaraderie, a dynamic atmosphere and a vibrant
    office culture.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit is part of our DNA—Bain Capital, Bridgespan and the Bain Corporate Renewal Group are a few examples of how Bain professionals have taken their passions to new levels within the organization.
  • Opportunities to lead direct reports, teams and client relationships come
    very quickly.

Bain provides experiences that veteran career changers seek, including exposure to a wide variety of industries in a short period of time, the opportunity to build upon analytical skills in a business environment and the chance to gain business insight by tackling a CEO's most critical issues.
