Kenway is a consulting shop that appears to fully live up to the values it aspires to, delivering an excellent experience for both clients and employees.
Highlights of life at the firm include a commitment to consultants controlling their own work-life balance, as well as a compensation model that provides bonuses based on value generated for the firm. Insiders are also particularly effusive about the firm’s SEP-IRA contributions, which are set at some 25% of salary, with no match required from individuals—a perk that will literally pay off for a lifetime.
On the work front, this is a company that insiders describe as “highly professional” despite its small size. While that view is largely positive, one or two employees do note that the sense of...

“A firm committed to integrity that will reward you based on merit and treat you like a human being, not a number in a spreadsheet.”
“Completely satisfied. I want to work for a company that cares about me as an individual and a company that continually challenges me.”
“First and foremost, our culture sets us apart from the competition. I read that a great career is equal parts challenge and support, and I believe Kenway does the support part better than anybody. This is because of our mission, ‘to help and be helped’ and a strong attachment to our Guiding Principles. The fact we live these principles has created a very familial, collaborative and supportive environment, where employees enjoy working and socializing together. This love of Kenway also manifests in better client delivery, because we care more.”
“Our leadership emphasizes doing our work for the right reasons. It is easy as an employee to make a correct ethical decision when you know your management puts so much merit into ideas such as no cutting corners, means over outcomes, and treating each individual uniquely.”
“We are a young company that gives employees opportunities early on that other larger companies would not give their young employees.”
Getting Hired Here
“Callback process was great, I had a deadline to get the interviews in before another offer was due, and they were able to fit me in.”
“Candidates go through an initial phone screen, if deemed a good fit they move onto three full interviews; skills/experience, behavioral and a case study (to evaluate critical thinking abilities). Ideal candidates are intelligent, can pivot between things easily, have the desire to learn and are natural problem solvers.”
“I believe our interview process has the right amount of rigor. We don't have just one interview but also don't put the candidate through several callbacks. Our process is also swift (depends on the candidate's schedule) where we get back to the client within days not weeks. We are looking for intelligent individuals who are culturally aligned, highly motivated, and entrepreneurial.”
“I think the ideal candidate for Kenway is someone who loves consulting but doesn't want to work for a traditional consulting firm. It is a person who wants to achieve personal growth but doesn't want to constantly travel to a client site or have to deal with any rigid firm hierarchy.”
“The ideal Kenway candidate is smart, hardworking, has a growth mindset and lives into our mission of ‘to help and be helped.’ This manifests in a highly collaborative, supportive individual, who loves helping clients and their colleagues solve tough problems.”
