    I worked at A.T. Kearney full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bright colleagues but more personable than at McK. Global company with a good reputation (Solid tier 2 firm), High variety of work, Work with intellectually stimulating colleagues. I'm referring to consulting jobs. Not as rigid an up or out culture as at other firm.

    Cons

    Long hours which is okay when your young but gets increasingly hard when you get older. Coming out the office at 10pm on a fairly common basis is not fun, especially as the intensity is high - when you see guys leaving restaurants from hedge funds earning multiples of what you earn. The promotions can be slower than at McK / BCG.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a few days off when on a particularly intense project. Build up the quantitative and asset based skills fast as this is where the consulting industry is going.

    Pros

    The team members (Manager level and below) are talented, committed and great fun.
