100%

I think this might depend on when you join. If you join in February, you won’t be part of the performance cycle until the end of the year and I think it’s going to be a tough case like 9ish months after joining. Performance cycles are October - March and then April - September.

Feel free to DM me, happy to talk

Kearney has a pretty aggressive path to manager so the likelihood of it happening is high, they probably want to start you off at that level to keep their expectations of you low. It’s not a good look for anyone involved if they bring you in as a manager and you can’t perform at their mark. At the same time, if the company / type of work is of interest to you, I would try to get assurances from partners that promotion discussion is on the table.

This is fake news. The likelihood is not high.

Never ever heard of 6months for assoc to mgr.. or maybe kearney isn't attracting the best and brightest so it doesn't happen even if it could

I think 1 year is very realistic for a lateral who already was a manager

What 😂

Ask for M start butwith first six months spent filling associate roles on projects for training…

Yes, it is possible for a lateral hire. The person who leads the practice you are being hired into is who I would ask about it. If you feel you need something “in writing” and don’t have some level of trust in the team who is hiring you; I build that confidence or not join.

People say it is a consulting school but majority of campus hires are EU / British citizens. Not sure if Brexit has changed something recently.
