    A collaborative, entrepreneurial culture in a firm that is the right size and on an incredibly exciting trajectory.

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The size of the firm gives you degrees of freedom that larger firms can not offer. The growth path we are on is not only very exciting, but it also offers current employees additional opportunities. The A.T. Kearney people are the most down-to-earth, high caliber people you will find.

    Cons

    The firm is scaling and this, as expected, comes with some growing pains - leadership is addressing these.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage all ranks of consultants as you have been. Maintain our unique culture, even with growth. Continue to expand work flexibility programs.

    I worked at A.T. Kearney full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A.T. Kearney is growing quickly. Consultants have numerous opportunities to grow and take leadership roles on projects and within practices and internal firm building functions. Individuals and teams typically work very hard, but hard work is recognized with a merit-based bonus structure, profit sharing, trips, extra time off, etc.

    Cons

    Partners run the gamut in terms of management styles and some try to make up for their deficiencies by pushing their teams beyond what might be considered reasonable. Most teams/projects have checks and balances in place, but there are some senior leaders who seem to be immune to these and will run their teams hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on developing partners and principals people management skills. Don't be afraid to let partners/principals/managers go who continually go against work-life balance initiatives and who create work environments that result in A.T. Kearney losing some of it's best young talent.

    Work-life balance can be tough - for any consulting firm, but the firm offers options

    Pros

    Smart but grounded people
    Plenty of camaraderie

    Cons

    Most of work is routine drudgery. Not much "Strategy" done here. 80-90% of work is sourcing and its boiler plate work
    Many managers equate work with the number of Powerpoint slides generated per day. A 16-20 slide deck per week is routine even though client flips thru them in 15 seconds and is done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extricate slowly from easy money - sourcing. Pretty soon the world (MBAs, undergrads) will wise up and stop believing your fancy on campus presentations
