    I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Little bureaucracy, plenty of freedom
    New offerings (digital, design thinking, RESET)
    Friendly and collaborative partners and principals

    Cons

    Consulting lifestyle can be challenging if home life is not in order.

    Advice to Management

    Management has placed big bets in recent years .. lateral partner hiring, investments in offerings like Digital Transformation, marketing initiatives like America@250. Financial return on some of these investments is still TBD, but they are already giving partners and principals more confidence to engage senior-level clients on important topics. Our base business will always be driving tangible results, but I like the "air cover" provided by our new offerings.

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

    Pros

    The culture is very down-to-earth and welcoming, and junior level consultants are all friends outside of work. The relatively small size allows you to take initiative on owning your career and pursuing the people/projects you want to work with/on. There is not much hierarchy and all levels (including very senior Partners like board members and regional leads) are easily accessible.

    Cons

    The firm is (rightfully) focusing on elevating the ATK brand, but with growth in size and prestige there has been a lot of Partner poaching by other firms. The culture really is so special and hopefully it remains intact throughout the growing pains!

    Advice to Management

    From a governance perspective, ATK is very equitable and flat. It would be really neat to let junior consultants listen to Partner-Principal calls.

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are great, big name that will open some doors, and fairly small compared to other management consulting firms

    Cons

    -Management is in shambles and it's trying to hard to be McKinsey, and the actual consultants are suffering for it
    -Up-or-out culture sucks
    -Lower pay than our competitors
    -Boring projects depending on where the staffing magic hat places you. You have to push for good projects and good teams or else you're out of luck

    Advice to Management

    -Pay everyone more...
    -Actually do what you say you want to do. Want to improve worklife balance? Then actually do it, don't just throw numbers at us showing us how we rate our projects

    Pros

    -People are very friendly, genuinely helpful and nice
    -Very meritocratic, opportunities to get promoted quickly if you work hard
    -Fun environment- lots of happy hours, beer cart, company parties. Honestly can say my colleagues are some of my closest friends
    -Entrepreneurial feel- opportunities to get very involved and take on leadership roles from the beginning
    -Very diverse, global firm. You will work with colleagues from all over the country and the world

    Cons

    -The firm's brand is not where it needs to be. We need to work to become more well-known in the general marketplace in the US
    -The usual for consulting- long hours and travel.

    Advice to Management

    Our firm is known for being down to earth and humble, but that doesn't mean we can neglect our branding. Focus more on getting our name out there.
