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

    Pros

    - Your ideas are important, regardless of your level/tenure
    - Project teams run relatively flat, partners feel like coworkers rather than unreachable senior figures
    - It is entrepreneurial, people who don't agree are likely to expect/feel entitled to opportunities without putting in effort

    Cons

    - It is a travel job, so if you don't want to travel not the best career track
    - Some time intensive processes around project evaluations, but currently being remedied
    - Still haven't perfected knowledge management, knowledge sharing, or SMEs accountability; ability to get valuable info/tools still primarily based on relationships

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, and recruit away partners from competitors that want to be part of something different

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    A lot of partner hires doesn't help with maintaining cohesive culture and direction of the company. Didn't help with projects sales either.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the project engagement process, getting reviews a few months after the project (just before the deadline) is neither helpful nor fair.

    Pros

    great work environment, but ...

    Cons

    firm is struggling in the market

    Advice to Management

    too much to tell

    I worked at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent down-to-earth people, interesting work, high impact, good compensation, good exit opportunities, ambitious growth goals and projection

    Cons

    Long hours (not more than others in the industry though and it is getting better), brand recognition in the consulting space (caliber of work is not reflected in the brand)

    Advice to Management

    Shake the sourcing stereotype. The firm is great at sourcing but it does so much more than that.

    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

    Engage more with interns
