4.4 of 5 stars

Get the most realistic and transparent view of strategy consulting, the firm's culture and what impact the firm can drive for its clients.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

1. learn about the firm event. the firm flew in all the interns to new york for a weekend of interactions with firm's leaders, fine dining, partying and team-building.


Downers

Almost all weeknds were jam-packed - either with intern activities or with client work. part of the reason being that the firm tried to make the most of the weekends. There were certain weekends when the client committments took over. Balancing the two was definitely a challenge.


Advice to Potential Interns

1. Firm- culture might be the most overused word across firms, but where it really matters. It translated to how the firms approaches strategy consulting, how collaborative is the firm with clients and how they hire, develop and retain their consultants.

2. Each firm is unique into expertise across industries and functions. Some of the ares ATK has unmatched expertise are retail, CPG, Energy & process industries, operations and procurement. This list varies across firms. If you are interested in specific industries from the get-go instead of being a generalist for too long, then research the firms in detail during the recruiting process. That wil definitely help in selecting the best fit.
