The career path at Bain is steep but extremely rewarding. Take a look at our senior roles.
The case team leader (CTL) role is the one from which top management is groomed, with most CTLs rising internally from the consultant position. As a CTL, you are a manager in training and assume a great deal of responsibility.
You learn to manage the entire analytical process, become an expert on the client's issues and industry, and recommend solutions that make a real impact. You not only provide answers to questions, but detail their strategic implications.
The next step for a successful CTL is promotion to manager.
Bain managers, most often promoted from within the firm, serve as leaders for both case teams and clients. Managers take responsibility for cracking clients' toughest problems and presenting insights in a compelling way that convinces the client to take action.
Internally, managers have a seat and a voice at the leadership table; you'll play a pivotal role in the office as you fulfill various leadership duties, increase practice-area expertise, and support associate consultants and consultants.
Successful managers move on to the role of principal.
Principals take a big-picture approach to solving our clients' toughest business problems. Because principals straddle the roles of manager and partner, their responsibilities range from inspiring and guiding a team on a day-to-day basis to cultivating the Bain relationship with senior clients—from owning a strategic vision to compelling clients to action.
Bain principals grow increasingly adept at driving clear hypotheses, breakthrough analyses and actionable strategic insights for organizational and operational improvement.
Principals are most often promoted internally from the manager role and are considered future leaders of the firm whose next step is the role of partner.
Nomination to partner is a formal acknowledgement of personal merit and accomplishment. As a Bain partner, you'll have considerable responsibilities:
Bain partners are typically chosen from within the firm's principal group.
