      Recommends

      I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Having worked in Global Production Services for well over a decade I've had the opportunity to work on many value-added deliverables. In the past year, since our department began reporting to the Chief Marketing Officer, we've seen an increase in opportunities to collaborate with Marketing on some exciting digital deliverables. The CMO has proactively included Production Services in her strategic direction and we've...

      Cons

      No negatives to this reporting structure, so far the collaboration and ability to increase designer skill sets is paying off nicely for Marketing and Production Services

        I worked at A.T. Kearney full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        --Limitless opportunities for marketers at every level to have their work put into the marketplace unencumbered by filters or editorial/strategic review. --Mostly predictable 9-5 work unless you're a coordinator having to work slavishly on events that have ill-defined strategic direction and/or ROI.

        Cons

        --See above about getting work into marketplace unencumbered by filters. --A vaseline-lens marketing culture led by a narcisstic CMO who propogates toxicity marked by undermining through backchannel means, bias based upon perceived threats to her authority, and excessive and unchecked spending on "me" investments with zero demonstrable value. --Too much upstream hand waving and posturing for the sole benefit of...

        Advice to Management

        A.T. Kearney is just a resume-builder to the CMO. Management: Demand more from her and also look more critically at her unchecked spend and at the attrition, especially among very talented people in leadership positions, over the last three years. Demand what is demanded of true CMOs everywhere -- but apparently not at A.T. Kearney: documented strategy, planning, objectives; downstream leadership; and accountability...

            Pros

            Company is still small enough to have a large network of people, immediate team is nice to work with.

            Cons

            Team moral is not good, there is a lack of transparency, everyone is out for themselves
