Hi there,

Why don't you find this out once you're at Bain? HR and everyone at the firm will have the clearest view of this. This is the epitome of counting your chickens before they hatch!

Very generally:

Associate Consultant → Consultant: 4 years

Consultant→ Manager: 2 years

Manager → Senior Manager: ~2 years

Senior Manager → Associate Partner: Highly dependent (5-7 years total to go from Manager to AP)

Associate Partner → Partner: Highly dependent
