Share your journey to Bain.

I joined Bain as an associate consultant (AC) after working for a few years in economic consulting and policy analysis. I wanted to apply my experience in economics and policy to broader business situations, and Bain offered a pathway for experienced applicants from many different backgrounds to join as an AC. I was able to make the most of my strengths from my previous experience as well as learning the Bain toolkit in a supportive environment. This is due to the apprenticeship approach taken at Bain, where colleagues make a strong effort to help new hires learn the ropes, have enough opportunities to learn by doing and collaboratively discuss feedback and achievements. 

Do you feel like you can do impactful work at Bain? What opportunities excite you?

My favorite part about working at Bain is the incredible variety of opportunities that you can pursue as a consultant. The cases are always impactful, stimulating and stretching - all of which provides for a great learning and development experience. It's energizing to know that I can learn about a completely new industry and capability with each case (and often times within cases too). The highlight of the Bain case approach is seeing how our final output results in tangible impact for our clients. Hearing positive feedback on our impact from the client is the best way to round off a case. 

“Build Your Own Bain” means creating a thriving career on your own terms. How have you been able to “Build Your Own Bain?”

The best way to build your own Bain is to make the most of the people here. This could be through Bain's affinity groups, start class peers, formal and informal mentors, case team members or sports clubs. It's great to build a network within Bain to discuss work and life things, as well as having sounding boards for any issues or questions.
