Makes me look forward to working at the firm everyday because I'm learning so much!
London | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Consultants were approachable, training was useful, great open culture in the firm, flexible start dates.


Downers

Slightly unstructured (Excel and powerpoint training held in the middle of the internship) as a result of flexible start dates


Advice to Potential Interns

Be open to working in any industry that you are assigned to - there is definitely much to learn working in any of the divisions. I am an economist but was assigned to the Life Sciences division and I was not disappointed.


Advice to Management

More training sessions will be appreciated.

3.9 of 5 stars

A real insight into the world of consultancy
London | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working on a project from start to finish, sitting in on meetings and presentations with our client knowing that I'd contributed to the final result. Gave me a great perspective on both how normal businesses operate, but also on how a normal consulting job works.


Downers

In the beginning (particularly the first week) I was given very little to do, which is both dull and frustrating.


Advice to Potential Interns

They get their interns involved, good, friendly office atmosphere, work can be quite interesting.


Advice to Management

Just make sure from day 1 that there is a plan in place for the interns (maybe training the first couple of days, before assignment to a project).


Would You Recommend

Yes

Made me fall in love with consulting
London | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Many different tasks, hence, the ability to see the nature of work from different angles. Very good mentoring and great everyday challenges.


Downers

It took a while to receive training.


Advice to Potential Interns

The company pays a great deal on what every individual's abilities and desires are, also there is much room for career development, i.e. could take on much responsibility from the very start. Everyone is willing to help you as well.


Advice to Management

Compensation should be more competitive.


Would You Recommend

Yes
