Atlanta, GA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Complete consulting experience: The internship gave me a well rounded experience - from traveling to working on a complex project. This helped me make the decision on pursuing a career in consulting.
Balance of work and team-building activities: Though the work was challenging, the team was extremely supportive. It helped me set myself for success. Also, we had team activities every 2 weeks which provided opportunities to unwind, relax as well as build connections with Partners and Senior Consultants.

Downers

I had to work on some weekends. Though it was mostly self-driven because I wanted to catch-up and be prepared for Monday meetings.

Advice to Potential Interns

Responsibilities of a full time employee, type of work was excellent, fantastic set of people to work with, direct collaboration with the client and real, tangible impact of work

Downers

Sometimes the work involved a lot of secondary research which got a bit monotonous

Advice to Potential Interns

Out of all the consulting firms I interacted with, A.T. Kearney people were the most interesting, humble and likable. The kind of people I work with is very important for me and ATK employees were absolutely fantastic. That made my decision to join all the more easier and after joining the kind of work and organization environment was really good. So, I would suggest anyone with an opportunity to join the firm should definitely give it a shot

Advice to Management

Though it was nice, the organization can slightly improve the accommodation aspect of the internship.

Would You Recommend

Yes

This internship allows me to make a real impact on my client while still opening my eyes to the rest of the firm.

Interacting with senior leaders enables me to get a clear picture about where the firm is headed in the next 3-5 years. Getting to spend time with my fellow summers makes me feel good about my future coworkers

Downers

Everything has been pretty great. I wish there had been a little more training around Kearney style communication.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself and ask for feedback often.

Doing away with Inexperience: An Undergraduate's Journey on a Steep Learning Curve

4.8 of 5 stars

Other (International) | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The firm is so friendly and offers lots of perks such as weekly and monthly events to keep everyone happy (not to mention in-office daily perks that are always available). Plus, the internship really puts the intern in the consultant's shoes rather than being an observer, which was really hands-on and extremely beneficial.

Downers

The somewhat difficult work-life balance (virtually difficult to uphold a life on weekdays) and the excessive travelling which could be tiring. However, this is the case in any consulting environment and flexibility is always valued at the firm as the firm always tries to cater to its employees needs.

Advice to Potential Interns

As an intern, you will have abundant networking opportunities, which you should seize. Moreover, working to the best of your abilities will reward you and make you stand out. Do not be afraid to ask anything of anyone in the firm; everyone is happy to help, and you'll be better off than trying to figure something out on your own.

Advice to Management

As cliche as it might seem, the internship was perfect and well-suited to all my needs. It went over the top and had aspects that I did not expect (very high compensation AND fully paid premium accommodation for all interns in the same hotel, which gave us a somewhat family experience that was lacking in other firms). Hours are tough and staffing a bit more people on projects might help alleviate the issue.

The learning experience that included both on-the-job activities as well as the lifestyle of a full-time consultant.

Downers

Early mornings.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be confident, as they are only looking for intellectual vitality in interns, not tangible skills.

Sample Interview Questions

Why consulting?
