I have been working at Kaufman Hall as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Senior Associate in charge of program valued interns' contribution to the Financial Advisory team and presented many opportunities to expand our knowledge on subject matter and positive feedback and on progress each week and constructive criticism on how we could improve. Associates who looked over our work were very nice and helped out tremendously. Great company environment.

Cons

Work can get repetitive after awhile so it is very important that one is proactive and initiate in terms of getting to know higher level members in the company (most of whom are friendly and approachable) to create opportunities for yourself.

Advice to Management

The internship program was great but there is always room for more improvement. Getting feedback from the interns really helped to make the experience a better one.

    Pros

    1. Truly a meritocracy - individuals provided increasing opportunity and rewards based upon performance, not tenure or politics
    2. The firm, not individuals, own the client relationships - creating multiple touch points and client contacts is rewarding in a team based environment
    3. Impact and visibility - ability to interact directly with Boards and senior leadership teams of clients
    4. Market position and reputation - strong growth and deep client relationships leads to a huge amount of repeat business
    5. Compensation - competitive salary and benefits plan

    Cons

    1. The commute can be a challenge if you live in the city
    2. Hard and demanding work with high expectations
    3. Expectations to always be "on" - lots of evening and weekend communication required

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make change and realize that a natural level of turnover is healthy. Continue to invest in your best and brightest
