Bain also offers tremendous flexibility and flexible career paths beyond consulting.”

An employee in Chicago highlighted an inspiring peer group. “Amazing colleagues who help you grow and develop,” she said. She also noted “the ability to build your own Bain career in a way that allows you to live life fully on all fronts—both inside and outside of work.”
