Bram, Associate Consultant Bain & Company: The culture and atmosphere within Bain are something special and it is for this reason that I chose to work here after my internship.
The culture and atmosphere within Bain are something special and it is for this reason that I chose to work here after my internship. The warm welcome I immediately received when I signed my offer turned out to be only the beginning of several good relationships with numerous colleagues. Already during my first two weeks as an intern, I joined the Bain Ski Trip to Austria which resulted in a very fun weekend and immediately connected me to a majority of my colleagues.
Furthermore, I noticed during my internship that Bain people have a very high level of energy and this energy is projected into everything we do at Bain. This energy combined with a positive attitude towards challenges result in a very high level and professional working environment in which everyone is encouraged to perform at their very best.
My favorite case
During my internship I worked for a Dutch telecom company and assessed the development of a particular market they were thinking of entering. I received a great amount of freedom to execute the case and was even able to present the results to a leading person within the client's organization. The degree of freedom combined with the challenge and the impact that I could made on the client made this case my favorite case so far.
A final thought
Whatever job you might choose: choose one that gives you enough energy to easily step out of your bed every morning. I think this is the most important criteria when selecting your future employer as a student. For me personally that is why I choose to work at Bain: the organization and people give me huge amounts of energy.
