Real-life consulting experience, given responsibility from Day 1, unbelievable social activities (3 day rafting trip, Red Sox games, numerous networking opportunities, rock climbing, sailing, etc.), access to Monitor thought leaders
Not much influence over allocation (i.e., what type of case you worked on)
Advice to Potential Interns
Honestly, could not have asked for a better experience. Monitor provides you with excellent career opportunities and case experiences as well as ridiculous social activities. It felt unfair when I told my friends - who were working at peer firms - how much fun I was having.
Advice to Management
Better communication about the strategic direction of the company.
