Bain local model: how does it work? Can you stay in Boston, for example, and focus on healthcare clients? How about the need for travel as you advance to Partner level?

Bain is regional staffing. My office has about 50% local projects (with half of that the private equity group). Bain also has a generalist model so rare you could focus exclusively on healthcare clients until you are a principal or so. As a partner travel depends on who your clients are/who you are trying to sell. Generally they travel more.

In NA, it's pretty atypical for folks to enter at the Consultant level without MBA, JD, or other doctoral degree.

At Bain it is not important to be in any single city to advance. Practice area leaders are spread throughout many offices in the system...and Bain is generalist so you wouldn't be able to work on only healthcare cases (at least not until you are a principal/approaching principal)

Ok, is PE practice based out of Boston or NY?

Most NA offices have dedicated PE teams. Consultants will typically do a 6 month rotation.

Ok, have you seen anyone being recruited into Bain without an MBA? Also, generalist model sounds good😸

Also where does the firm leadership (i.e major decision-makers) reside. Ny or Boston? I am into now, but some ties to Boston. COL in NY obviously higher.

I meant am in NY, autocorrect fail. Thank you for the input.

Not sure what you want to understand with the firm leadership question, OP. There are very successful and senior partners in both Boston and NYC. As you probably know (or could easily look up), the firm is headquartered in Boston.

For the leadership question, at PwC at least, it is important to be in NY because advancement is all about visibility , at least in the Financial Services practice. I know some Bain healthcare partners who are very successful in Boston. But each firm has its own "power center."

Agree with everything B1 said.

Open to non- tax advantaged accounts. Assume 401k, Roth and HSA is maxed out every year (fwiw).

Are there options out there if you just want to take something as needed and not everyday? For the record, I’ve tried improving my sleep schedule, diet, meditation, and exercise.
