How does Bain & Company do with diversity?

They have tall white people, short white people, medium sized white people.

I’ve left Bain, so take this with a grain of salt, but it’s similar to everywhere else. It’s a lot of lip service, and depending on the group you’re part of you may feel more or less “attention”. For example BGLAD (LGBTQ+) was quite active, but other groups less so. It’s also office dependent. In general though, as a non-white person I never felt discriminated against; I’d also say my office was probably 60% non-white, so again office specific. KPMG1 has it wrong though; it’s not white people of all sizes at the top, it’s tall people only :)

Also non-white and while I also have not been discriminated against, my identity has been used by the company to cultivate a certain image of diversity that they like to portray.

I think the rep that Bain tends to hire attractive people is quite true............

Why is this? Mck does this too.

It’s getting better but still not great

A lot of lip service and virtue signaling.

Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid. It seems in both my dating life (F dating M) and trying to make friends (any gender!) people are very flaky. I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!

I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up.

Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.
