Pros

Team positively encourages your growth. Lots of well-deserved promotions. You are challenged to do better than your last project and get out of your comfort zone. Managers are amazing and present, yet never micro-manage. Coworkers are smart and hilarious, and eager to help. An all-around great workplace.

Cons

None. Workload can be heavy only if you ignore your time management and communication skills. So, ask for help, and you will get it. Managers take into account how long projects take and if more help is needed. No Bainie is in this alone.

We've found that the best solution to a complex problem often comes from not just bringing together, but seeking out different perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and strengths.
Diversity and inclusion are key to our mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results for our firm and our clients. We embrace diversity, recognizing the value that comes when we challenge each other to see things with different lenses. More importantly, we strive to create an environment where every individual can contribute as their authentic self, bringing this diversity together in powerful ways.

This isn’t easy. It requires us to be open, observant and honest with ourselves and each other. To have the thoughtful dialogues, and to hold ourselves accountable for contributing to an inclusive culture. It also requires efforts such as our global ally network – where everyone can formally be involved in our diversity & affinity groups - to engage each other in driving change.

About Us

At Bain, we champion the bold to achieve the extraordinary.

We are a global consulting firm working with the world’s leading businesses to help redefine their industries and adapt to a rapidly changing world. Our integrated teams bring together deep thinkers, connectors, disruptors and champions to solve the world’s most complex problems using their different perspectives and expertise.

Development is more than a company policy; it’s the cornerstone of our culture. You will be surrounded by teams that challenge you, colleagues who support you and mentors who inspire you to become the best version of you – both professionally and personally.

Nearly 50 years ago, our founders were insurgents. They believed they could do things better – for our clients and the people of the firm. They believed they could make a firm based on results within a business model that was the most people-friendly in the industry.

That insurgent mindset and that vision remain today – and we are continuously acknowledged for that in global rankings and with our clients. 

A career with us places you on an unparalleled path for success – whatever that path may be. Whether you’re with us for the long-run or growing towards a goal of your own, we want to be part of your journey.

Inclusive Teams

Impact

We are creating a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive world through FurtherSM, our integrated suite of sustainability capabilities that brings together the full force of our talent, energy and expertise. Today 2,500+ Bain team members are actively involved in this work. 

With our clients

Sustainability is a critical priority for our firm and business is growing fast. Each day, Bain is working on hundreds of sustainability cases globally. Our ambition is to embed sustainability into everything we do.

At Bain

We believe in leading by example, so sustainability is deeply embedded into our business. Bain is the first consulting firm to achieve net negative carbon status – meaning we remove more carbon from the atmosphere than we emit. We set Science-Based Targets, in line with the 1.5oC path, to reduce our scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% by 2026. We have also embedded diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) deeply in our firm and publish an annual DEI report that shares data on representation parity at all levels of our firm.

In our communities

We made a $1.1B commitment to pro bono consulting over ten years. Through this commitment, we invest in work to develop and scale solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Our pro bono work focuses in four areas: Environment, Economic Development, Racial Equity & Social Justice, and Education.
