Advice to Potential Interns
If you are not sure yet, whether to go to a firm like BCG or McKinsey or A.T. Kearney, then A.T. Kearney is definitely a fair alternative. The colleagues are very down-to-earth, the projects also include far-reaching strategy projects, and the salary is comparable to the bigger strategy consulting firms. Two major advantages of A.T. Kearney compared to the three big management consulting firms are (1) the higher flexibility in all admin processes and (2) the possibility to occupy a specific topic as not each topic is already occupied by a colleague.
