    The Company

     

    Bain & Company is one of the world’s leading global business consulting firms. It was founded in 1973 on the principle that consultants should deliver results, not just reports and has dedicated itself to working with global leaders to help them make better decisions. Bain’s passion in converting those decisions to actions while delivering the sustainable success they desire has resulted in our clients historically outperforming the stock market four to one. 

    We have worked with two-thirds of the Global 500, thousands of major regional and local organizations, countless start-ups and hundreds of nonprofits. Our work spans technology, analytics, strategy, marketing, organization and operations across all industries and geographies.

     

    With 55 offices across 36 countries around the world, we work seamlessly as one firm to serve our clients wherever they need us. Bain is consistently recognized around the globe as one of the best companies to work for and according to Glassdoor; Bain has ranked in Glassdoor’s top four companies for each of the last ten years and is only one of three companies to do so (Google and Apple the other 2). We aspire to be the best consulting firm in the world and in order for us to do that, we must continuously hire, develop and retain the world’s very best business talent.
