I work at Bain. Typically no language requirement as such even in regional offices..it will help with some clients and hence preferred, but not a strong recruiting filter. Region is growing a lot, so all firms will be interested if you are already in consulting and have strong interest / link to region. Singapore will be virtually impossible, especially at junior levels (below managers), due to visa constraints

Thanks! That's really helpful!

My husband & I pool our full incomes into joint checking/savings accounts for everything.

I definitely want to contribute towards our joint savings (love seeing that number go up!), but I’d also love to take a chunk of my bonus to spend on myself.
