There have been some rumors on FB here about some changes coming in at Kearney, but TBH, its been tough the last year as a fresh associate: compounding factors with the pandemic + work grind + lack of firm support outside of "soft initiatives" (think new internal web page with links to articles) while most other firms MBB, some T2) provided WFH support like meal expenses, WFH equipment allowance etc

Altman Solon beyond 12 hrs but I believe that’s just with every other consulting firm

Wow this is sad to see. I’m a bit late to reply as I don’t frequent fishbowl much. The pandemic has definitely been tough and I’ve had some difficult moments both personally and professionally. I am sure starting in the pandemic was very hard for many, regardless of firm. There is always more we can be doing to improve but I still find Kearney to be a great place. Nearly all of the partners I have worked for are thoughtful, respectful and supportive. My colleagues are genuinely awesome people that I enjoy hanging out with outside of work, which says a lot. Yes I miss travel and team dinners, but my colleagues and partners have been there for me this part year through thick and thin, and to me, that level of solidarity says more about our culture than anything else!

The fact that AL persists with this is ...questionable

We think that our friendly culture still is a USP, but in reality other firms have long surpassed us. What remains is an organization with a lack of leadership, pressure on mid ranks to fill the void left by partners, lack of role models, and a highly risk-averse culture that is neither daring nor truly addressing the issues ...

Interned with Kearney prior to the pandemic, loved it and was so excited to come back. Start full time during the pandemic and I feel like a contract worker more than an employee.

I do think people are just burned out for what it’s worth, at the moment - it’s a bit of a distortion. In an existential challenge for the industry, it’s tough as a t2 with people trading up to MBB or leaving for FAANG. Leadership has lagged in decisive action so far but at least some degree of hope they will resolve a variety of challenges.

PwC has done pretty good by its employees. We are short staffed now because we sold an absurd amount of work in the first half, but otherwise they have been good.

OW is doing very well. In short we continued supporting our clients during the first wave and this is now paying off.

WFH is tough on culture but we have a lot of online events (which are not nearly as good as in-person but better than nothing) + in-person events are planned to kick off again soon

Thanks for an actual answer, great to hear culture is doing well

Major attrition problems at ACN strat right now also. We are hiring aggressively and leadership are being vocal about recognizing the problem.

So - right now things are fine as they are dangling carrots in front of those of us who are still here, but they could certainly get better (namely comp)
