Hi Everyone! I wanted to reach out as I am Considering an offer from Kaiser Associates in DC for a strategy consulting role. Wanted to see what people’s experiences and viewpoints were of the firm overall, the nature of the work, the growth/promotion opportunities, prestige and culture/WLB etc? Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance.

Thank you so much for your response and insight!

Used to work there. Interesting work (but concentrated among a few main clients), lower than market pay but fast promos, interesting growth strategy work but the day to day can get a little repetitive (lots of expert interviews which you will need to source on LinkedIn). WLB is a little better than other strategy firms (avg. 50-55 hours per week)

Interesting. I could see myself doing the same thing. It’s good to know that Kaiser alums get hired at MBB and T2 firms. I want to make sure I can make the jump someday if I want to.

I’ve been at Kaiser for over a year and love it!! The work is really interesting and I’ve learned a ton. The boutique environment is really special and I’ve made genuine friends here. The firm does a lot of social stuff and it’s really easy to make a name for yourself. If you are tenacious and take advantage of the opportunities to grow you’ll see quicker promotions. They say it’s a meritocracy and from what I’ve seen it really is. If you’re worried about the money, it will come. They still pay really well even if it’s a little lower than the big guys. You can’t beat the culture and career here. I’ve been really happy at Kaiser.

So sorry for late response! Thank you for this information about travel. I am more than convinced at this point and so excited to get started with Kaiser!! Looking forward to meeting you all soon and getting to work. This is really a dream for me to break into pure strategy and I’m grateful Kaiser gave me this opportunity to start my journey and grow with the firm for years to come.

Run the other way. Pay is like 50% of market rate, so if you’re a competitive candidate you will be better off elsewhere. I took a title cut and still got a ~$100k raise to move to new position.

Yes - I think you are correct! If you’re looking for a pivot, Kaiser is a great way to get your foot in the door. My only complaint is comp - otherwise, it’s a great company!

I am mixed-race, first gen college/law grad who joined an amlaw100 firm through their diversity program. My firm's record on diversity is pretty weak, and I'm beginning to wonder if they just hired me to check a box and make them feel good about themselves. I am often seen as white-passing, and the only other "non-white" person in my group is also white-passing. We don't have any visible minorities in our group, and every time one applies the partners find a reason to go w the white guy.(Cont'd)
