I heard Bain is hatching a plan at this very moment to get you back. They just aren't over you. Keep an on your inbox. Also, this message will self distuct. 🕵️‍♂️

OP thinks that Bain gives a flying s**t who they are. In fact, Bain (and any firm OP applied to) forgot their name before the interview even started. Must feel good to be so arrogant and clueless at the same time!

So you’re at BCG and blacklisted from Bain?

Why would you get blacklisted for accepting a competing offer? It happens all the time - it’s just part of recruiting. I assume you were upfront about interviewing at multiple firms?

Sure. Thats a learning I intend to take. Thanks!

Damn. How ambitious are you that you’re sitting on a Bain offer and continue to recruit for BCG. And I’ve heard Bain is a nicer place to work so what’s up with that.

Probably got paid more

How do you know you got blacklisted?

Assuming OP isn’t exaggerating, they are almost certainly blacklisted at least at the office the offer came from. None of the firms look kindly on someone reneging on an offer.
