I have been working at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than a year)
Fellow AT Kearney colleagues are the best thing about working here. Couldn't not find a more supportive, collaborative and fun group!
Excellent c-suite exposure
Can be long hours and not the most transparent staffing model for associates
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (London, England) in March 2016.
Two, one-hour long interviews, back-to-back. Both began with a fit interview followed by a case. The fit interview was intense and the interviewer drilled down a lot.
'Tell me about a time when you did xxx'.
'How did you plan that process?'
'What were you thinking at the beginning of that process about the structure of the task/project?' 'Why did you decide to do it that way and not another way?'
'And at x stage, what was your thought process?'
'What were your weaknesses/limitations in that project?'
'What did you learn from it?'
If preparing stories for your fit, try to leave enough time to not only tell your story using the Context, Action, Result format, but to look at your CV stories from different angles so are prepared for the level of drilling.
The good news is, there are only two or three of these in the time so make sure the stories show a range of skills and why those relate to consulting.
