I worked at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than 3 years)
a.t. kearney provides in intellectually challenging work environment. colleagues will consistently test your thought process to ensure you've exhausted all avenues when thinking a problem through. this creates a forum for thought-provoking conversations which, more often than not, leads to provocative ideas and project breakthroughs.
at the time of my departure, leadership had recently transitioned and was looking to shift the direction of the firm in a major way. though it seems as if they may have righted the ship, the rollout of the new vision was very clunky fraught with misinformation and miscommunication. this caused a lot of confusion within the ranks and an exodus of a lot of good people, as well as unfair treatment of junior consulting staff. a very grueling and exhausting schedule. 3.5 years into it and i was physically and mentally spent mostly due to the long hours and travel. while this is typical of any top tier management consulting firm, it doesn't make it any less difficult. given the sweet spot that a.t. kearney has deep domain knowledge in - operations - the diversity of project work can be limited. if not careful, an individual can be pigeoned holed very early on, making it difficult to gain exposure to different areas.
Advice to Management
keep lines of communication open with consultants and ensure expectations are aligned across the organization. find more creative ways to improve the rigorous travel schedule. the goal of management consulting is to find innovative solutions or clients, however the consulting model itself has had very little innovation over the last 40+ years. being a pioneer in this area will help turnover and attract top talent.
