    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Kearney full-time

    Pros

    - Very competent and hard working employees. - International exposure where requested. - Social community amongst junior staff.

    Cons

    - Projects within the UK are longer and operations focussed. - Expectation to support multiple bids and projects at the same time from partners. Sales are the main KPI for partner renumeration, which results in overpromising to clients and significantly understaffing projects. - Bullying behaviour from some partners on junior staff. - Burnout is prevalent and excepted in the culture. A lot of people are unhappy and there's a high turnover.
