4.3 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The environment and people around the office was great. The training program was strong and there were many opportunities to get involved in different areas of Talent

Downers

Some of the work was not the most rewarding and there were ebbs and flows to the workload. I could be extremely busy one day and then have some hours with little to do.

Advice to Potential Interns

Reseach the Talent business and try to understand the different areas of business. Follow trends in compensation, and see if articles about Talent interest you.

Advice to Management

Interns can be given more responsibility and billable work. Mid-term evaluations can also be more honest. I appreciated the positive feedback but would have found some more negative feedback to be helpful. Compensation is also below average, and the moving bonus does not really help because much of it is taxed. It would be more helpful to just cover up to a certain dollar amount of expenses associated with moving.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An internship with great people, real projects and stellar work-life balance for consulting.

3.8 of 5 stars

Philadelphia, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people were all very friendly and easy to approach, all the way up to Partner level. Everyone is here to help as well.

Downers

Sometimes there is not much work to go around, which is sometimes the nature of a consulting business.

Advice to Potential Interns

A good fit for someone that likes dealing with the people aspect of a company and/or likes analytics and finance. There is also non-analytical work that is interesting.

Advice to Management

Have some projects/work lined up for interns when they arrive for the summer. Perhaps set up shadowing days where they can shadow certain projects.

Dallas, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

pay, colleagues, and the personal mentoring

Downers

lots of down time and hours on the computer

Advice to Potential Interns

It's a lot of writing! But its not necessarily creative writing, so a journalism degree is not required.

Advice to Management

Promote shadowing of associates and consultants. Provide lots of projects for the intern to do during down time.
