Have been with big D for 2 years. Got an offer to a company I hold of high value for an 'internship' with potential to full time. Really on the fence. Anyone done something similar before?

@KPMG1 Internship focused on Software Development (Front End). Which is more aligned to where I want to continue as opposed to random tech projects. It is a little bit of a step down with a small decrease in pay but I'm not sure if that'll pay off later.

Development is a different ball game. Lower ceiling IMHO but if you hate consulting then take it and don't look back. Companies often doubt the technical abilities of former consultants so this could be a great opportunity

That said if you're getting some exposure and want a role doing product/project management consulting is probably going to pay off more both short and long term

Thanks for the feedback folks. EY1 you've summarized my thinking process as to leaving.

We can't get enough FE people at DD, try and switch into a studio roll perhaps?

How has internship hiring been adjusted given the recent hiring push? On one hand, there's extreme growth and need for talent. On the other, interns don't convert to full time for over a year from acceptance, so by then the labor demand may have subsided. Any insights?

Hello!
I am a student currently pursuing my masters degree at Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (EPFL) in Management, Technology, and Entrepreneurship.
I have applied to an internship as an Associate Consultant at Bain&Company’s Dubai offices but I didn’t get any reply regarding my application while everyone else has.
Does anyone have any idea as to why this might have happened or who i can contact regarding that?
Also, can anyone help with a referral?

Thank you!

One thing I like about my firm is that, if your intern sucks? You can just say they suck and they’ll get pulled off your job so you can focus on being efficient. I put considerable effort into 1: he’s never available, never finishes anything, never takes notes, doesn’t follow through on communication ever, zero initiative, and refuses to talk to anyone except 1 staff associate even when specifically directed otherwise. I can’t push pull or drag him if I tried (and I did). I don’t feel bad.
