Bain & Company
Bain & Company is the management consulting firm that the world’s business leaders come to when they want results. Bain advises clients on strategy, operations, information technology, organization, private equity, digital transformation and strategy, and mergers and acquisition, developing practical insights that clients act on and transferring skills that make change stick. The firm aligns its incentives with clients by linking its fees to their results. Bain clients have outperformed the stock market 4 to 1. Founded in 1973, Bain has 57 offices in 36 countries, and its deep expertise and client roster cross every industry and economic sector. In May 2018 Bain acquired FRWD, having partnered with them for many years. The acquisition will dramatically strengthen Bain & Company’s ability to help its clients drive superior results across marketing channels, and ecommerce, decrease their long-term reliance on external partners, and leverage customer data sets for better accuracy in reaching consumers.
FRWD is a unique digital marketing agency designed to build client capability through a comprehensive approach to helping companies make the best digital marketing investments. To do so, FRWD extends client teams through co-location of top creative, media optimization, data science, and advertising technology teams to shorten test cycle time and leverage learnings to move forward. The agency also acquires and trains talent for clients to create sustainable campaigns and drive continual improvement without further FRWD presence. FRWD works with some of the world’s most recognized consumer brands, leading healthcare providers, entertainment companies and more. FRWD is currently based in Minneapolis but is focused on building out an EMEA presence with a hub in Bain’s London office.
With the combined skills of Bain and FWRD, we are able to bridge the gap between brand, marketing, strategy and execution, trialing strategies in immediate real-life tests, while having the operating model and organizational design experience to scale the results throughout the organization.
Looking for a summer that will both challenge and inspire you? The FRWD@bain media team is looking for qualified candidates to join our full-time teams with a focus on media planning and execution. Each intern will be assigned to both a media discipline team and a client team to provide day-to-day support on all client work.
What will your day-to-day be like? Out interns typically assist in the development, implementation and optimization of paid campaigns in social, paid search, programmatic, and amazon. You dive into the actual platforms day one at FRWD@bain. You'll also meet with media sales reps to expand your knowledge of the media market and available tactics for brands.
Our interns leave the summer with full certifications, actual client experience, research on specific topics of interest through our internal tools, a couple of coffee stains, on favorite shirts, and a lot of real-world experience to be prepared for entry-level opportunities with FRWD@bain when ready. We're hoping you don't apply just to join a fun, fast-paced, and incredibly smart team but to help us in continuing to test and learn on how to build a strong company culture for all interns and employees.
