Great firm. Very entrepreneurial - you can really do your own thing. High quality people, dealing with important issues for important clients. Big enough to get things done, small enough to get things done quickly. I am a Partner with Kearney - so I am supposed to say many of these things ;). But I have also worked for McKinsey and Accenture. I would recommend to a friend or former colleague.

I joined about 18 months ago as a lateral associate. Plan to be a lifer. The work is hard but rewarding. My colleagues are sharp yet humble. And it feels like a loving family where everyone has your back.

Was at Kearney 8-9 years before moving on. I have such amazing and wonderful memories, laid the foundation for a very successful career. Highly recommend the family spirit and community. Very smart people, small feel, but quite a large firm. Still close with many prior work colleagues.

We are Kearney now. Come joined us!! 🙂 Genuinely great firm, with great people / culture — Definitely, the BEST Managing Partner and Chairman in the business. Put Alex Liu in a room with any of the other MPs and he will win hands down on metrics of IQ/ EQ and most importantly inspiration and energy — Values based: “Culture Day” is actually a thing and means something ... Partners rate each other on the values and its not taken lightly when they don’t stand up to the values — Solidarity: People have each other’s backs and stand together in times of crises; and punch above their size/ weight consistently — Entrepreneurial Spirit: People are not only allowed but encouraged to do their own thing. New / growing practices incubated on that basis Our Proposition: — We get stuff done: Practitioners with real-life experience; strategic / operations transformations are bread and butter — We don’t spread ourselves thin; we go deep: Deep; consistent, Multi-year client relationships with marquee clients — Digital and Analytics: Lots of great new work happening in this area; especially in APAC. We are doing some pioneering stuff here 🙂

We have a collection of originals that shape why we are amazing. From the Fishbowl Famous Gervet, (Search for his AMAnything), to JW, BTS, DH, LP, Masa, crap I could name 100... A lot of this is driven by size. We all know each other and even as an associate if you sent Alex an email, he personally would answer it within a day... when he did his AMA, he did it, no communications person, he did it himself.

I left the firm for a competitor... and then came back because I missed Kearney people so much. We also do interesting work and the clients seem to genuinely like working with us. Yes, I would recommend Kearney.

I’ve never seen someone from Kearney respond to a post. At least not recently.
