Hey all, recently just got the no after BCG decision round. Is it worth it to try and apply to Bain? Or should I not put myself through the pain again

Why Bain? Why BCG? Why McKinsey? What makes these firms different? To me it looks like it’s mainly the culture of the companies that varies - am I correct?

Question. I have an older friend who was newly contracted through an off brand firm who lost their contract for the NCS. They are offering him a transfer to the winner of the contract, but for a lesser salary (they said he's too expensive). They said he could also instead transfer to an independent contractor, for a 30-35% increase in salary, but no benefits or paid leave etc. Hourly salary, but much higher wage as a trade off. He's nearing retirement and doesn't care as much about benefits.
