Consulting

Kearney vs AlixPartners (performance improvement) - e.g. nature of work, working style, market perception / prestige, route to partner, exit opport. Aim is to continue in consulting in the mid-term.

I think there’s a lot in common between the two brands. I’ll some insights from my experience and my friends experiences on AP: 1. Comp: AP is the clear winner here, and compared to most others. 2. Training: Kearney has a more robust training program for new hires at this time. Variety of modules, paid time devoted to it, etc. AP is making this a priority to close this gap. 3. Approach to work: we honestly have the same type of approach. Get in on the factory floor, talk to the people actually doing the work, and collaboratively solve the problem. 4. People: both good, experienced folks, particularly in operations. AP has a ton of former Kearney there. 5. Prestige: who knows and who cares. 6. Type of projects: the folks I know at Alice do primarily OPs stuff, which we do a lot of too. It seems based on my conversations with friends that Alix has less diversity in project type but that this is quickly changing as they continue expand. I would work at AP and I work at Kearney. Both seem like great shops.

I’m an ex Kearney, this is a perfect summation. Honestly you can’t go wrong with either.

I think K1 gave a fair assessment. I don’t know how Kearney got bogged down in their growth ambitions, but the folks I know who work there (or have worked there) are strong & highly capable. I do associate them more with Ops / Supply Chain stuff, but that may just be old news. That said, I think Alix is a great firm- I’ve been here a while, and I can count on 1 hand the number of folks I haven’t really enjoyed working with. I think we’re doing very high impact work, and I like how we’re focused on / brought into urgent situations. I don’t know about prestige / exit ops (I think they’re very individual driven), but we do carry a bit of “you call them when things are going south”, which can be good or bad depending on what you want to do in the future...

Kearney seems like all talk. They’ve barely grown. Look at the ridiculousness of their “rebranding”. AP sounds like is/ has a better trajectory. Again, AP also levels everyone at director. My sense is it’s easier to make partner at atk

Depends on the practice & functional area. What kind of work are you looking to do?

Operations work, e.g. Supply Chain, Procurement; ideally in the PE arena (faster pace and higher desire / appetite to realise benefits)
