A Career Accelerator
From your first day on-the-job at Bainbridge, you’re exposed to CEO-level challenges. You’re immediately a critical part of a team responsible for mobilizing clients to solve their toughest problems, from customer growth issues, product pricing, entering a market, or evaluating a competitor, to investing in a new technology or solving production challenges –your work involves a lot of complexity and change.
At an early stage of your career, you can gain practical business experience and valuable training through in-depth exposure to a variety of industries. The diversity of projects at Bainbridge deliver unique learning opportunities and the chance to make an impact across the client’s organization well after the engagement’s completion.
We only hire ambitious, intelligent people and strive to facilitate your success, whether your goal is to take on a Senior Leadership role at Bainbridge or to find opportunities elsewhere. Those who decide to leave Bainbridge are equipped with a transferrable skill-set that enables them to thrive regardless of the industry they pursue. Our alumni network and former employees’ stories offer continuous proof of this.
Knowledge Development & Training
Knowledge development is key to employee satisfaction initiatives at Bainbridge. We offer challenging client work in a variety of industries, enabling our employees to research and learn the business of a continually evolving list of companies with the freedom to become specialists in dozens of different markets. While most training occurs via live, on-the-job case studies, Analysts often deliver post-project presentations on research methodologies and country-specific learnings to teams in order to share knowledge, provide best practices pointers, and foster the growth of capable leaders.
Additionally, work at Bainbridge is closely aligned with both the skills and interests of each team member. Our Managers work with each employee to complete a Professional Development Plan outlining his/her professional goals with respect to Bainbridge as well as to his/her overall career path. Bainbridge employees frequently reevaluate their Professional Development Plans to ensure that goal timelines are met and overall employment satisfaction criteria are exceeded.
Teamwork & Mentorship
A single project typically requires collaboration between three or more Analysts in addition to a team of global, in-house researchers. The project team frequently use each other as sounding boards to derive the most astute conclusions and recommendations for a client.
Bainbridge invests in its staff and seeks to help everyone realize their full potential. Our professionals receive rigorous training that coincides with personal career goals and benefits that encourage overall wellness.
For new employees, hands-on learning and guidance is facilitated by our Mentorship program, which spans three to six months depending on employee seniority. During this mentoring period, the two work together through a “checklist” of training initiatives and discuss the mentee’s progress toward performance expectations, fostering a team-oriented environment and ensuring success on each client engagement.
The power and encouragement to make high-impact decisions validates each employee’s valued role at Bainbridge and instills a sense of pride and ownership in the company.
Bainbridge strives to be both an employer and research partner of choice. We have achieved a high level of employee and client satisfaction through our Internal Excellence Initiative (IEI), which includes ongoing employee training, employee satisfaction surveys, client satisfaction surveys, and bi-weekly roundtable discussions.
Our employees are characterized by their diverse backgrounds, sense of teamwork and camaraderie, pursuit of knowledge development, and desire for new challenges. Stemming from the dedicated practices of our management and employees, Bainbridge permeates a culture of excellence and commitment to each of its employees and clients, illustrating why employees truly want to work for Bainbridge.
Bainbridge employees speak, read, and write a variety of languages including English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, German, and French. Unlike other companies that focus on one product or industry, the Bainbridge team has diverse industry experience, making us qualified to represent nearly every major industry.
Our team members have academic experience in Business Administration, Economics, Finance, International Relations, Political Science, Communications, Advertising, Sociology, Materials Engineering, and Computer Science, to name a few undergraduate and graduate degrees.
