What Bain Looks For:
Sharp problem-solving skills. Solid leadership experience. A passion for teamwork – and for life.
Duties & Responsibilities:
Associate Consultants (ACs) are at the heart of Bain’s core strength – providing clients with powerful facts and analyses that outline solutions and drive change. ACs are generalists who work as members of case teams in roles that vary according to the team’s objective.
ACs are typically responsible for identifying information sources, gathering and interpreting data, and presenting their findings to case team members. Other responsibilities include interviewing the client’s customers, competitors, suppliers and employers; this work becomes the basis of the case team’s strategic recommendation.
Bain invests heavily in the training and development of each AC. While most training is on-the-job, ACs also attend formalized training throughout their time at Bain. Formal training programs start with an extensive in-office program, followed by a ten-day off-site program with new ACs from other Bain offices around the world. Given the workload and performance expectations of this position, Associate Consultants are regularly required to work more than 50 hours/week to perform essential duties of the job.
Bain helps each AC build the fundamentals of a business career – cracking tough business problems, communicating solutions with clients and teams, and collaborating with senior Consultants and Managers. The AC role at Bain attracts a diverse group of highly-qualified people and provides the opportunity to gain unparalleled business exposure in a challenging environment where learning is the primary reward.
Person requirements Associate Consultant applicants must have strong academic backgrounds, sharp analytical skills, a high motivation level, proven leadership experience, and outstanding interpersonal skills.
