Firsthand Findings

Employee Reviews

  • “If people and culture are important for you in identifying where you want to grow and be stretched then Kearney is the place for you.”

  • “Kearney provides you with the opportunity to work for leading global companies while still operating in a small family-like setting where you literally know everyone. Very strong focus on the social community and events!”

  • “The culture and colleagues set us apart. We all know each other well throughout Europe and are committed to bringing the firm back to the #1 spot within strategy consulting.”

  • “We really care about delivering results. Very different to some others who take pride in producing very insightful and pretty decks. For us, that is only part of what we do, more important is the impact delivered.”

  • “You have to be ready to withstand working for long hours. However, the firm is very helpful in all aspects and leadership understands the challenges of the job and is trying to implement measures to improve work/life balance.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “A Kearney consultant must be quick on their feet in structuring, analytics, logical argumentation, listening, but most of all must have high energy and able to team and interact without wanting to win or compete, but wanting the result to be better.”

  • “A successful candidate can properly identify most of the business issues and provide well-structured reasoning grounded in sensible assumptions. The candidate should be able to present the reasoning in an organized and compelling way. The ideal candidate should also be able to perform well under stress and be an independent thinker.”

  • “The firm seeks a high level of personal fit because of the people-driven culture. This means embodying the Kearney values. Everyone is super friendly during the recruiting process, creating a very welcoming environment.”

  • “The interview and callback process are straight forward, fair and fast. There is no one ideal candidate in consulting and there will never be. There are so many diverse, clever people, that it would be a shame to only look for one ideal candidate. We look for people with character, that are smart, understand how to tackle a problem, bring in a fair portion of self-confidence and willingness to take reasonable risks/ responsibility and want to build their own (career) path.”

  • “[Depending on where you interview, we may] have three rounds of interviews, with 2 case interviews in each round. Usually we call back on the same day or the day after to let the candidate know if they passed this interview round. Ideal candidate is top of the class at university with relevant student employment or internships in international strategy consulting (Kearney, McKinsey, BCG, G&S, JPM internships or student positions). Would also look good with volunteering experience or interesting extracurriculars.”
