What is strategy consulting?
- Consultants offer their advice and skill in solving business problems for companies who need expertise and an outside perspective. Some consulting firms specialize by industry (like financial services or retail), while others are known as technology specialists. Bain is a strategy consulting firm, which means we help our clients make big decisions in regards to corporate strategy, operations, mergers and acquisitions, technology, and organization. We serve companies across industries and geographies
What does an Associate Consultant (AC) do?
- Day to day, AC’s work within case teams of ~4-10 colleagues. Any AC will tell you that no two days are alike, but in general the responsibilities of an AC are to find the right information, complete analyses, and interpret and communicate the insights. AC’s work becomes the basis of the team’s strategic recommendations.
- “Best Firm to Work For” (Consulting Magazine, Vault, and Glassdoor.com). For 11 years, Consulting Magazine has rated Bain & Company the best place to work – in recent months, Vault and Glassdoor.com also honored us with the same award! Check out their articles, and ask us why we agree with them—we all have our own reasons.
- Unique, entrepreneurial office culture. Working at Bain is fun! We hire engaging, creative people from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we genuinely enjoy spending time together.
