4.3 of 5 stars

London | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

A.T.Kearney's London office brings together some of the smartest people from the most diverse backgrounds that I have had the pleasure of working with. Undoubtedly the most satisfying part of my 10 weeks at the firm was getting to meet and work with the intelligent, talented, and incredibly welcoming consultants here at ATK.

Downers

While there are a great selection of projects to potentially get staffed on, the pipeline is not as large as what you would see at larger consulting firms. This means that timing of project start dates can play a large part on what you're staffed on next. However, this is typically the case on most firms so it's not a deal breaker in my opinion.

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't pick the job you want; pick the person / people you want to work for / with. If I had met more people at ATK, I would've ranked the firm as my top choice going in to recruiting.

4.4 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

It's a bit cliché, but the collaborative nature of the firm was the best aspect of the internship. Everyone genuinely wants you to succeed and receive a full-time offer.

Downers

The firm's reputation for hard-work drives one of the more demanding weekday workloads across comparable projects at comparable firms.

Advice to Potential Interns

Do your homework on the type of work that firms primarily do. A.T. Kearney is known for operations work, which essentially means cost cutting. Helping companies with their bottom line is extremely impactful for clients, but for many aspiring consultants, less glamorous than pure strategy (top-line growth) projects.

Advice to Management

Junior employees would benefit from senior employees being encouraged to adhere to and have an open dialogue about the Worksmart charters. Our team's Worksmart charter was mostly a formality.

Sample Interview Questions

Nothing new here. Behavioral interviews were conversational where they're truly just trying to get to know you and the type of work you've done. For my cases, I had a market sizing case in the first round and an operations-focused case in the final round.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A challenging opportunity focused on client, professional, and personal development.

Mumbai | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I was treated equally important and I got to participate in all client meetings whether it was the CEO or a sales manager. My inputs were also considered during meetings.

Downers

Sometimes there would be less work assigned to me for the day so I would have a free day

Advice to Potential Interns

The people are extremely warm and friendly. It's okay to ask questions and learn on the job but one must work really hard, once they have the job.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Downers

the only thing which I disliked is that I was being said that no student interns will be given full time offer. this really demotivated me for doing work in college. in my internship, i was working keeping in mind to join the firm but all got shattered

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I wud have known that there is no value of student interns.
