The current dearth of undergraduate management in some practices

The Summer Consultant Program is a phenomenal way to get to know Bates White. I was a summer consultant and I fell in love with the place. We make most of our hires through the SCP, so if you are at all considering economic consulting, I would highly recommend applying.

The career advancement opportunities.

Downers

This company does not have bad things that would not be present in other firms in the industry. It only has better things than the competition.

Comments

This company is clearly a great place to work, specially to start one's career. The on-the-job training and responsibility opportunities are exceptional and typically result in great career opportunities both inside and outside the firm. For undergraduates, this is a great place to acquire experience prior to graduate school. Though there are no formal placing mechanisms, our consultants usually get accepted at the top programs they apply to.
