Bates White’s Summer Consultant Program was named the best overall internship program and the best internship program for consulting firms.
The rankings are based on Vault’s survey of more than 5,800 interns at 100 internship programs. Respondents were asked to rate their experience in five categories: quality of life, compensation and benefits, interview process, career development, and full-time employment prospects. Vault is the most comprehensive resource for employer, university, and internship program rankings, ratings, and insight.
In completing the survey, one former Bates White Summer Consultant said, "I honestly think you would be hard-pressed to find a better internship program, no matter your field of study. This internship makes use of a balanced skill set (both quantitative and qualitative skills). You will learn (or improve upon) a number of valuable and marketable skills. You will make a meaningful contribution to the firm’s work."
Another participant said, “I loved being able to work on challenging, complicated, real-world issues, while developing valuable quantitative skills that are transferable to nearly any career path. I was surrounded by a diverse and well-rounded group of interns, as well as amazingly helpful, bright, and welcoming coworkers. We also were given impressive access to upper management.”
Bates White offers Summer Consultants a comprehensive 10-week program that includes extensive training, quantitative and qualitative client work, mentoring by senior leadership, social events, and opportunities to organize a community service project. “The success of our summer internship program is a testament to the incredible dedication and hard work of our employees and we are very proud of this award. To be named the best program for all firms is a fabulous recognition for our firm,” said David DeRamus, Bates White Managing Partner.
