Current Employee - Management Consulting Associate in Chicago, IL

I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time for more than a year

Pros

1. Strong pool of talent
2. Teams can be very flat and everyone chips in

Cons

1. For new employees, a lot is left to chance about getting in with a team you gel with early -- has a great deal of impact on your future trajectory with the firm
2. There isn't always a clear pathway to help new employees ramp up with a strong first project

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For mid-level employees (Managers & Principals), lessen the focus on BD and instead further incentivize them help develop the people under them.

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney

    Pros

    Perks... if you are single and/or love traveling, you will fly often, get miles and hotel points to use for your personal vacation, and AmEx reward points.
    Name on Resume... Head-hunter will contact you about once a week after 1 year at kearney.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, no respect of people's personal life
    Many disrespectful people, especially in Sr. Management
    Unclear promotion cycle / bonus atribution
    Underpaid / overworked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure and promote accurate upward feedback to avoid disrespect/abuse
    Define, communicate and apply clear promotion process
    Diversify from Sourcing and Procurement!

    Current Employee - Associate in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney

    Pros

    - Down to earth, smart people that are willing to learn and teach
    - Partners are very approachable, not many 'Type A' high strung folks
    - Client relationships are valued and folks are exposed to clients from day 1

    Cons

    - Long hours and poor work life balance (though the firm has started to make efforts to improve this)
    - A more varied selection of projects- not just sourcing/supply chain/cost reduction and being more strategic in choosing work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should work on initiatives to grow the firm, scale is beginning to be an impediment especially when competing against MBB. Firm should also do more when reconnecting with alumni!
