Why Bain?

A career at Bain is an excellent choice—and unlike any other. 
Here are a few reasons why ... 

When the leaders of the world's largest, fastest-growing companies look for help, they call Bain.

At Bain, we want our consultants to experience firsthand how a successful business operates across all functions. 

You’ll quickly develop expertise and skills across multiple industries and business needs; we don’t pigeonhole you as a specialist early in your career.

Over time, you'll build increasing expertise, using your unique experience in other industries to advance the client’s objectives.

The founders of Birchbox, Pencils of Promise, Warby Parker, Riot Games and Milli Millu talk about their Bain experiences.

We want our employees to thrive at Bain, regardless of what their future plans are. Our dedicated career teams (Bain Career Advisory and Bain Executive Network) provide guidance and support at all stages as you plan for your future.

Just two or three years with us will offer you incredible opportunities, both at Bain and beyondfrom becoming a Bain partner to starting your own business, stepping into a senior role at a top tech company, joining a private equity firm or making a meaningful social impact at a nonprofit you love.

     

We believe Bain's home office model is best for our people's development, team culture and ultimately for our clients' results.

Bain’s home office model creates a team environment in your home office. Our consultants work with many of their office colleagues on multiple cases throughout their careersthey're not just onetime collaborations. As a result, case leadership is truly invested in you, and your colleagues often become close and supportive friends.

At the crux of our model is your home office program manager, who will get to know you and your professional and personal priorities. He or she will be your career advocate to ensure your experiences meet your professional and personal goals.

This model doesn’t mean you won't develop a strong global network, too. Cross-office teams, international case assignments, experience transfers and global trainings are all commonplace. 

At Bain, you truly get the best of both worlds.

     

Managers from around the world come to Phuket, Thailand, for training.

We offer comprehensive, individualized training to ensure you have the tools you need to succeed at Bain and beyond. Our trainings don't just happen once a year and our trainers aren't outsourced from other companies. We hold trainings every 12-18 months where you'll be trained with your peers by current Bain managers that know the skills needed to succeed and thrive.

Don't worry, you won't just sit in lecture hallsyou'll learn in small groups with an enjoyable mix of presentations, exercises, role-playing and experience sharing.

    

Our affinity groups are active networks that underscore our inclusive work environment, offering their members additional levels of connection via coaching, mentoring and professional development. Our networks (Asians at Bain, Blacks at Bain, Latinos at Bain, BGLAD - The GLBTQ Network at Bain & Bridgespan, Vets, Women at Bain) include members from both Bain and the Bridgespan Group, our sister nonprofit consulting organization.

      

Priorities shift as you journey through life, so we offer flexible options to ensure everyone can have a long-lasting, fulfilling career at Bain. We offer many programs to help you "build your own Bain", some include:

  • Externships: Four to six-month externships at an organization of your choice related to your professional goals (for strong-performing ACs, SACs and consultants, typically during your third year at Bain)
  • Global transfers: Temporary and permanent relocation opportunities to experience other global Bain offices
  • Parental leave: Generous parental leave coverage in every region
  • "Take Two": Extended breaks that allow eligible Bainies to take two months off to rejuvenate and/or fulfill personal goals
  • Leaves of absence: Longer sabbaticals and leaves of absence for when life pulls you in different directions
  • Flextime: Part-time and job-sharing options for times when family or personal needs take priority

         

What is management consulting?

Over the past 20 years, consulting has been the first career step for many of the most talented young business graduates. But while they may be familiar with top firms’ prestigious reputations, few people know what the job is actually about.
