Bain & Company

Digital Marketing Intern

June - August 2021 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I really loved my team, the cross-functional network I gained, and the several employee social events.

What I wish was different

I wish my team had been based out of the same office as me so that I got to bond with them more.

Advice

I would emphasize how important it is to always be curious and wanting to learn. It's also really important to talk to everyone you meet and ask questions often.

The quality of the work and especially the caliber of the people who I worked with.

Do what you can before the summer (and staffing call) to figure out about the work going on in the office and get a feel for what type of case you'd like to request.

What I liked

Fast paced work, kind people

What I wish was different

More openness and faster feedback. Work life balance is pretty poor

It's definitely worth it to take an internship/offer from Bain but understand that you will definitely work longer and harder than most other jobs.
