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.

Challenging but rewarding summer with great opportunities for a career changer
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Well-organized/structured program with opportunities to pursue the types of projects/industry work I would be interested in the future. The networking opportunities and office activities also provided a fun environment to work in.


Downers

The travel and long-hours of a consulting lifestyle, but it's not any worse than any of the top consulting firms.


Advice to Potential Interns

A.T. Kearney has a very open environment and the company prefers a collaborative culture. It's not just a consulting firm that swoops in, makes recommendations and leaves. The company takes it a step further and works with the clients to accomplish the results promised in the recommendations.

Summer program provides real-feel for consulting lifestyle
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Downers

The pressure


Advice to Potential Interns

Have a specific reason for the type of internship and job you are looking for. Do not follow the herd or go to an industry simply because your friends are. Once you've selected the right industry for you, really do your homework to see which firm is the best fit for you (may or may not be the highest ranked firm)


Advice to Management

More training on basic skills required for success (specifically Excel & PowerPoint and the unique ways they will be utilized)


Would You Recommend

Yes

That not all of the interns were given the time necessary to attend the team-building intern events.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking to get a feel for the consulting industry and want to work with some great people then A.T. Kearney is a place to get that experience. I would say that have realistic expectations for the industry and realize that you will have to work hard.
