4.4 of 5 stars

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.

It was a shot to see what it is like to be a consultant for 10 weeks.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

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")

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.

4.0 of 5 stars

An internship where you are Involved with all aspects of team work and treated like a full time employee, not an intern
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The two best aspects of the internship was having my own work stream that was critical to the client. I wasn't given non-meaningful work, but actually worked on a project that was presented to the COO. In addition, the firm goes out of it's way to make sure you are networking/connected with anyone you want to meet. Whether it is a partner or an associate, everyone has an open door policy and is willing to talk.


Downers

The only part I did not like was, this being a consulting internship, I wanted to experience the travel. Unfortunately I was staffed on a local project. This only happened to 3/4 of 55 interns so very minimal. But the only negative from the summer


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to be thrown into the mix and experience what your day to day life will be like, then this is the internship for you. It is not an internship where you are treated like an intern doing 70% or 80% of the week. It is a great place to see if consulting is for you and you are given all the tools to succeed


Sample Interview Questions

- Why A.T. Kearney?

- Why Consulting?

- Tell us a time you worked in a team?


Advice to Management

The can do a little better on the hours. They can also try less travel moving to 3 days a week from 4.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes
