    Former Employee - Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Cairneagle Associates full-time (more than a year)


    The work is amazing if you are interested in education, technology and media. Lots of blue-sky strategy projects on how clients and sectors should evolve into the digital age. Lots of exposure to top CEOs and entrepreneurs, Cairneagle works with most important players in the space. Hierarchy is very flat so incredible experience for junior consultants.

    Good opportunities to grow in the firm and good exit ops: alums have moved on to blue-chip industry, big 3 strategy consulting firms, private equity, venture capital, NGOs, etc.

    Great office culture with super friendly, smart and diverse colleagues.


    Training is mostly on-the-job. Workload can be lumpy. Because education technology is changing so fast, a fair amount of primary research is required in most projects. Brand is has low visibility outside of core sectors.

    Positive Outlook
