Bain & Company
Bain & Company demonstrates a huge commitment to assisting its employees with their growth and development. It has just been named the Best Firm to Work For in the global management consulting industry for the 10th year in a row and #1 in 2012 in the area of career development. This annual survey is based completely on employee feedback.
The firm believes in recognizing and rewarding outstanding performers. Its global PR organization is a true meritocracy where high performers create their own professional opportunities and growth. The global PR team has a direct line of communication with the firm’s senior management and leadership teams in every practice area and with all 49 offices in Bain’s international network. The entire team is valued and trusted as integral in protecting and enhancing the firm’s reputation.
Bain offers several opportunities for employees to take a break from demanding roles to help them sustain long-term careers at Bain. These include externships, in which employees can enrich their business knowledge by taking up to 6 months to work for another company, and leaves of absence. Bain also offers a backup child and adult care program called “Parents in a Pinch,” which provides access to in-home backup child care, either temporary or ongoing, any time an employee has a gap in regularly scheduled childcare arrangements.
