    Make management a lateral move rather than a promotion/vertical move. Some folks are meant to lead others, some folks don't even want to.

    I worked at APCO Worldwide for less than a year

    Pros

    Interns are given significant responsibilities and substantive work including client-facing deliverables; practice teams are supportive and highly engaged; plenty of opportunities to work on projects you're excited about even if they're outside your practice area

    Cons

    Fast pace and tight deadlines can be stressful and you may be asked to work late on big projects; interns work on a project-by-project basis and aren't as exposed to the day-to-day operations of their team
