Share your journey to Bain. 

As a software engineer who has always enjoyed the business side of work, I’ve always looked at switching industries every few years to gain difference experiences. After gaining experience in digital marketing, e-commerce, healthcare, media-tech, and finance, joining Bain was a good next step as I could get exposure to new and different markets and learn from business discovery and many experts here at the firm.

How did you know that Bain was the right company for you? 

Aside from the fact that Bain offers the opportunity to work in different industries, which in turn expands your knowledge and pushes you out of your comfort zone, the company culture matched the high ratings I read on Glassdoor.

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

Yes, I can. I'm excited about working with different industry experts and building solutions that address very specific problems.

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

Being in a team with individuals with years of experience and different backgrounds has allowed me to grow in multiple dimensions. By having regular one-on-ones with each of them, I'm able to collect feedback as I plot my personal development and review what I’m doing well and where I need more attention.
