Associate Consultant, Chicago

Something that definitely makes Bain stand out from other consulting firms is that they have a home staffing model, and what that means is that cases are usually staffed with people from the same office. It really helps you build strong relationships with your team. double-quote-close

Hi, my name is Cristina. I am an associate consultant (AC) originally from Monterrey, Mexico and a recent graduate of Notre Dame.

I actually started with Bain the summer after my sophomore year doing a five-day externship program called BEL, Building Entrepreneurial Leaders. It's a program for diversity students and aims to introduce the world of consulting to students to figure out if that's a career path that they want to pursue, and if Bain is a good fit for them.

What really drew me to Bain was the people and the really challenging and interesting work done here.

During my internship I worked for a client in the utilities industry. The work was very strategic - which I liked - but it also helped me develop both qualitative and quantitative abilities.

Something that definitely makes Bain stand out from other consulting firms is that they have a home staffing model, and what that means is that cases are usually staffed with people from the same office. It really helps you build strong relationships with your team because you're traveling together throughout the week and it's easy to be able to also have lunch and dinner as a team when you're in the office on Fridays.
