    I have been working at Kaiser Associates full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A true meritocracy that gives enormous opportunities to those who are willing to work hard. Limited travel required! Having come from other firms that required excessive travel, this is a great perk. Great opportunities to develop top-notch consulting skills. Strong team environment. Great perks including early finish Fridays in the Summer and a well stocked kitchen.

    Cons

    Long hours can be required. Some standardization across practice areas would be helpful - some practices allow greater autonomy and more chances for growth. Standard working schedule is rigid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build infrastructure to allow consultants to concentrate on delivery.

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Associates.

    Interview Details

    Two junior consultants(together) interviewed on phone and then another two junior consultants(together) interviewed on phone. The first two junior consultants interviewed face to face again and offered the job.It sounds ironical that junior consultants with little leadership or managerial skills have been given authority to hire managers.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation when you didn't get help from management on a difficult project.
      Describe a situation when you could not provide a solution to client or failed to deliver.
