The diverse nature of assignments, industries and companies coupled with complex problem solving make strategy consulting highly interesting and motivating. You will be exposed to an endless array of intellectual challenges, for which clients depend on you and the team to develop solutions. Not off-the-shelf or standardized solutions, but tailored solutions that fit seamlessly to the problem or situation at hand. Exposure to constant intellectual challenge – and the steep learning curve that follows from it – is a big part of the appeal of strategy consulting as a profession, and typically a key reason for why people join August.
But the challenges you face at August are not just intellectual, you also get a taste of challenges with an entrepreneurial angle. While client engagements are at the core and center of what we do, we are simultaneously building and developing our company. What do we want to be, what are our targets, how do we compete, what do we need to develop, and how do we go about doing all of this? Addressing these types of questions is not limited to a selected few – everyone in the team contributes to this and has a unique opportunity to leave their own mark.
