Employee Reviews

  • “Awesome people, awesome culture, tough hours (although typical of industry), trying to look after people.”

  • “I may be drinking the corporate Kool-Aid on this, but I believe it's the collaborative nature of the way the firm works with clients, sleeves rolled up, to achieve an outcome of change, and not just a slide deck. We tend to be invited back many times into each client and that is very satisfying as the changes become palpable and helpful.”

  • “If you're comfortable with the firm being the central point of your life and knowing that the hierarchy will always be Clients; Firm; You...then there are great opportunities for training, challenge, growth, and cash with some excellent top-tier clients worldwide. You will spend your life creating PowerPoint slides for Partners who have low attention spans and who will rudely cut you off mid-sentence, because obviously they know best.”

  • “Kearney is literally a professional firm where all consultants and supporting staff are acting in a self-directive way with strong ownership minds. Each of the members in the firm highly respect each other and I believe this firm is a good place to work for all persons that aim to grow through collaborative works in the consulting jobs and deliver the values to clients.”

  • “We are experts AND we are real. We have a culture of expertise, proven in delivery. Because our commitment to our clients often extends to implementing our recommendations with them to deliver results - we are credible, and compelling. Because we roll our sleeves up to work side-by-side with our clients - we are engaging and authentic.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “HR is understaffed resulting in delayed and less consistent interview and callback process.”

  • “Ideal candidate is a self-starter, eager to learn, sensitive to needs of clients and teams, a strong analyst and potential manager/partner.”

  • “Interview process is very transparent and fast. The ideal candidate is a highly structured problem solver with a quantitative bias and great communication skills.”

  • “Our process is personable, efficient, and designed to give the candidate a feel for who Kearney people are, and what we would like to work with.  The interview process is designed to enable the candidate to show who they are, express their aspirations, and learn a bit about consulting as a career.  We try not to drag things out and get back to people with a result as soon as we can. The ideal candidate is intellectually bright with a demonstrated record of achievement, engaging, with a passion for problem solving, and for making a difference.”

  • “Recruitment is primarily through campus for both interns as well as final hires. Firm looks for candidates with well-rounded profiles across academics, positions of responsibility, work experience and extracurriculars. Recently, a higher number of lateral hires have been recruited.”
