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

Lol who allows meal expenses?

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!

This thread went in an unexpected direction. I guess nobody is doing anything culturally great in T2 at the moment. Or it’s just pretty brutal everywhere.

What what OW? I’ve seen comments that OW doesn’t pay as much as EYP but I saw EWPs ranges and they seem pretty inline with OWs

I guess it depends on the region. I don’t think this super negative image is justified for DACH. There are a lot of things to improve and the COVID situation is still a major challenge but this is just too negative here.

DACH also had WFH stipend and care packages a full year ago right?

Update on Accenture strat — pay raises were not what folks were hoping for. Essentially just made up for the losses we all took last year but no real increases. Folks are less than happy.

All of Accenture has midyears. Strategy is the one who has typically stuck with the annual cycle

When I signed up at Kearney I was under the impression it was one of the more prestigious T2 firms, however, comp is lower than that of even Deloitte which I found very surprising.

We concentrate on a few m7s… your point?

Read a comment on Glassdoor in 2014/ 15, where someone said Partners/ Principals/ Manager cross the line of subordinate versus slaves at Kearney. Seems like it is still same story there.

Uh, no?

I remember even as a senior in high school thinking that 70K a year seemed like a massive salary. Sometimes ignorance is bliss I suppose.
