It was important to me for the internship to be an accurate reflection of what working at TCG would be like, I wanted to know what I was potentially getting into! I really liked that the internship was real work, solving real client problems. I was given responsibility and ownership of my work and was able to get a great feel for what working for TCG full-time would be like.
I really didn't dislike anything about the internship, I had a great experience, and was thrilled to receive and accept a full-time offer.
Advice to Potential Interns
TCG has the benefits of a small firm (e.g. ability to interact with top management, tight knit relationships with colleagues across levels), and has the client base that you would expect to see at a large firm (e.g. fortune 100 companies). Additionally, TCG's relationship with Nielsen (Nielsen owns TCG), gives us access to data and insights for our clients that are really unmatched at other firms.
