- Smart people with community feel. Fantastic culture - Great progress on w/l balance last few years - Interesting work, range of opportunities across industries/ functions - Great pay & benefits (especially parental) - Fast promotion timelines - Global mobility - MBA sponsorship - Weekends protected - Transparent communication from leadership
- Difficult job, often long hours - Can be an imbalance on staffing sometimes (seasoned consultants always on projects and struggling to get breaks in between, new joiners having trouble to get staffed to begin with). This is improving though. - A lot of procurement/ sourcing and operations work (can be a pro or a con... some will do more than others. You'll have some control over this but can never avoid completely).

The best People, tough and interesting challenges, incredible clients. Supportive leadership.
You have to be driven and have a thirst to lead. They are working hard to provide people more balance and to allow room for those who don’t want to work the intensity of hours, but it’s not easy. Expect 50-65 weeks on average with spikes to 70, 80 during big crunches, critical milestone, or at more junior levels. But in the long run, worth it if it’s for you.

1. Really smart and dedicated colleagues. 2. Down to earth atmosphere 3. Possible to design your own path and transfer practices along the way
When you get close to the top, it does get a bit crowded. Network and relationships play crucial roles at that point.Kearney Response3mo
