Incredible Opportunity to Work With Brilliant People on a Truly Impactful Project
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- The culture at the firm blew me away. Everyone really took an interest in my development and pushed me to get better every day. Plus they are just really fun people to work and travel with.
- The project I worked on will fundamentally change how the company operates going forward, and should enable them to achieve their long-term goals. Its fulfilling to leave a project feeling like you really accomplished something.
- The compensation at Booz was equal to or greater than the compensation offered by any of the consulting firms that my friends worked for this past summer.


Downers

- Booz focuses their recruiting efforts on MBA students, and as a result my class of undergraduate interns was small compared to other top firms. It wasn't a dealbreaker, but it would have been nice to have more young people around.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think most candidates don't view Booz & Company as being in the same tier as the big three firms, but after my internship I can definitely say that companies and CEOs do. Clients really trust and respect Booz, and I think the job market will change to reflect that over the coming years.

2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

I enjoyed my fellow interns and the people that I was working with the best. They were very down to earth and fun to hang out with.


Downers

There was very little that I didn't like about the internship.

Be prepared to travel!

The chaos of consulting yields a comprehensive enriching experience
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

People within the firm were exceptional. Friendly, smart, passionate about their work, and sincere in their eagerness to help. The openness from Partner to Consultant at all levels were primary factors in my decision to accept the firms offer.


Downers

Flying every monday at 6am


Advice to Potential Interns

Get to know the people well. Utilize your school's alumni to reach out to the firm. If you join the firm, you will be spending more time with your team mates than your own family. If you do not like the culture, you will be unhappy and unproductive


Advice to Management

The signing bonus is weak compared to other firms within the industry

Yes

MY INTERNSHIP WAS INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGING AND GAVE ME EXPOSURE TO ALL THE TASKS REQUIRED AS A CONSULTANT
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

THE SPECIFIC PROJECT THAT I WAS ASSIGNED GAVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE ALL THE ASPECTS OF A CONSULTING PROJECT. I WAS ABLE TO DO RESEARCH, INTERVIEW EXECUTIVES IN THE CLIENT, MAKE PRESENTATIONS AND EXCEL MODELS.


Downers

THE PROJECT THAT I WAS ASSIGNED WAS IN AN INDUSTRY THAT I ALREADY HAD SOME EXPERTISE, AND I PREFERRED TO HAD EXPERIENCED A NEW INDUSTRY.


Advice to Potential Interns

IN ORDER TO SUCCEED AT BOOZ, AND TO ADAPT ITS CULTURE, ONE MUST BE A TEAM PLAYER, WILLING TO COACH AS WELL. MOREOVER, ONE KEY ASPECT OF THE COMPANY IS ITS RIGOROUS PRAGMATISM IN ITS WAY OF THINKING. EVERYTHING YOU THINK, SAY OR WRITE, NEEDS TO HAVE A STRONG SUPPORT BASED ON DATA.


Advice to Management

THE GREATEST ISSUE TO ME IS THAT BOOZ IS A GOOD COMPANY AS MCKINSEY, BAIN OR BCG, BUT DOESN'T HAVE A STRONG BRAND AS THESE COMPANIES HAVE. SO MY ADVICE IS THAT BOOZ NEEDS TO STRENGTHEN ITS BRAND IN ORDER TO RETAIN MORE PEOPLE.

I can't believe they pay me to do this.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people I worked with were incredible, they went out of their way to offer the time I needed to develop and improve.
The travel model made it very easy to get my work done during the week and then be a family man on the weekend.


Downers

Getting on a flight early Monday morning.


Advice to Potential Interns

Get to know the firm - it is much smaller than the other top strategy firms which presents pros and cons. For me the entrepreneurial culture was a huge selling point. I got to work side by side with Partners and have breakfast with the firm CEO as an intern.


Advice to Management

Improve the marketing of firm strengths to potential applicants.

Downers

The hours worked were excessive.


Advice to Potential Interns

Talk with as many junior and senior people in the firm as you can.


Advice to Management

Enforcing work-life balance by paying over-time or restricting hours worked could greatly improve quality of life.
