The firm was highly ranked and recognized for its commitment to diversity efforts and employee quality of life.
“We’re truly honored by this recognition, especially since it is based on direct feedback from our people about the impact of our client work, our culture of close teaming and mentorship, the ability to create a meaningful career path, and more,” said Manny Maceda, Bain & Company’s Worldwide Managing Partner. “I’m grateful to our global team for the passion, creativity and dedication that they bring every day, making Bain such a special place to work.”
Employees pointed to the firm’s commitment to work-life balance, professional development, and its collaborative teams as among many key drivers of the company’s winning culture and overall success. Its consultants also cited Bain’s transparency in providing its employees with an understanding of what it takes to succeed and contribute to the firm’s work. Its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts, especially its diversity recruiting initiatives, were internally praised as ambitious and receptive.
