Never go Berger - Still true?

Anonymous A asked on Jan 16, 2017 - 1 answer

Hi everyone,

I am in the “lucky” situation that I have to decide between two consulting companies for an internship. Is someone out there, who has a current inside view into the business culture and economic situation of RB and is willing to share some useful information with me/us? In the last couple of weeks, I attended several workshops of different consulting firms as well as interviews. Especially the consultants of RB left a positive impression on me...but I am unsure, because their collegiality and kindness is often criticized.

Thanks in advance!

the only negative thing about Berger I have heard are the long working hours (even for consulting firms ;) ). Anyway, which location are you applying to? I guess it depends on that, as well. Generally, I would say if you had a positive impression, you should go with your gut feeling. In the end it is just an internship, isn't it? Let me know what you decided
