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).

4.4 of 5 stars

Immediately impactful, limitless opportunities for personal growth
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.

4.3 of 5 stars

Professional development through apprenticeship-based learning in a collaborative environment, while helping US companies solve big problems
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")

My team members and colleagues made possible for me to successfully engage my first consulting experience
Mexico City | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

A lot of support from your team. A lot of guidance from your mentor and other key people in the Company. A lot of empowerment for one to execute the project. A lot of authority for one to make the best out of the assigned responsibility.


Downers

Some working days might be very long.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure that there is a fit between your personality and the culture of the organization. Make the best out of the training week prior to working on a project. Do not be afraid to seek guidance and speak your mind.
