Featured Review

Former Employee - Engagement Manager

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

+ Great for professional development/growth + Outstanding peer group + Interesting, stimulating work + Attractive pay + Great benefits: employees are taken care of

Cons

+ Limited time in between promotions (owing to up-or-out system) prevents junior employees from exploring a wide range of industries/functions + Travel needs and general lifestyle are unsustainable +... Leadership ranks need true diversity of thought, in order to prevent groupthink

Advice to Management

+ Embrace remote working

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Kearney full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Extreme flexibility during pandemic Very fluid; interesting challenges from year to year Your future is yours to own/manage and excel

Cons

The consulting environment may not be for everyone if handling high demands are disruptive to self. Otherwise, not much negative commentary to provide here; truly a very dynamic place to work.
