Ownership of workstream

Long hours

Advice to Potential Interns

A.T. Kearney is really the next tier after MBB and is not in the same pool as firms that have audit/tax/IT consulting (e.g. Deloitte, Accenture, PwC, E&Y).

Uppers

Meeting the people I would work with

Downers

The worklife balance was difficult. As an intern it was hard to predict what was coming next which made it difficult to plan to have time away from work.

Advice to Potential Interns

A.T. Kearney does a good job of giving a real life consulting experience. I started full time one year ago now and the internship prepared me for what to expect as a full time consultant.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Given high level of responsibility and authority to make decisions and work directly with clients. Never treated like an intern.

4.3 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people I worked with, and the others I networked with - the culture is extremely collaborative, and the ability to interact with a lot of very smart people who don't have a chip on their shoulder.

Downers

I had a great time, and there wasn't anything in particular that I did not like.

Advice to Potential Interns

Learn about the firm's history and culture and how it defines the firm. The firm is very proud, as it should be, of its history and the collaborative nature is critical to their success. Also scour their website for lots of interesting articles on various areas, and on where the firm is headed in the future.

Sample Interview Questions

2 rounds of interviews: Round 1 had 2 case interviews; Round 2 had 1 case interview, 1 written/presentation case interview and 1 behavioral that was very conversational - they were trying to assess if I was someone that could hold an interesting conversation for a period of 45 minutes ("the airport test")

Would You Recommend

Yes

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

client exposure, support within the firm from senior leadership, meeting other consultants

Advice to Potential Interns

Very collaborative environment, extremely smart people, hard working culture, meritocracy, transparent process

Would You Recommend

Yes

Immediately impactful, limitless opportunities for personal growth

4.4 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The amount of responsibility given and the chance to run with a discrete piece of the puzzle. Really outstanding people that I can't help but to look up to.

Downers

The experience depends heavily on the specific project to which you get assigned and the people staffed on that project. I feel like I lucked out a bit and enjoyed both thoroughly.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be comfortable with autonomy - you will be expected to lead, suggest, and direct your part of the work.

Advice to Management

ATK takes training and diversity very seriously, and should be proud on both fronts. I feel like it can improve as an organization in the areas of recruiting, non-work related opportunities (i.e. externships, pro bono opportunities), and branding. Right now I feel ATK punches below its weight in marketplace perception.

Would You Recommend

Yes

10 weeks with lots of learning and training, developing competencies and increasing my network of people
