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

    Pros

    The culture at ATK is great, and the people there are very down to earth and easy to work with. I feel very much that the people around me are invested in my career development.

    Cons

    The travel can be a challenge, as we have a standard 4-day-per-week travel schedule (with some exceptions for shorter weeks).

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time

    Pros

    Incredible people who want to help one another succeed and make the work we do fun and exciting.

    Tons of opportunities for stretch roles and trying something new/outside your comfort zone.

    Cons

    Leadership is reactionary rather than strategic (despite working on strategy for clients)- lots of ebbs and flows rather than steady.

    Pros

    The culture is the best, people are brilliant and very relaxed. You will learn and improve skills all the time. Teamwork, cooperation (as a global firm) and horizontal governance.

    Cons

    Long work hours, too much travel, difficult to manage work-life balance. Consulting means you see little projects through to execution

    I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The partners are changing the firm leadership and starting to getting serious about making their fellow partners accountable for performance.

    Cons

    Our recruiting strategy has lacked stability; communication from leadership is neither candid or nor collaborative at times

    Advice to Management

    Be straightforward and honest; realize that our revenue is driven entirely by how many brains we have to rent out to clients so you can't stop recruiting
