    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Chicago, IL
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Kearney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many highly motivated and smart people High emphasis on diversity and inclusion makes the working environment very fair and inviting Strong and visible leadership who lead by example

    Cons

    Lot of turnover and confusion after change of internal operating system. Wish the bonus was higher for management service staff. Sometimes the pay doesn’t make up for the long hours you put in, but flexible hours and high tolerance for remote working makes up for it somewhat. Career opportunity may be a little limited for management service staff. No tuition reimbursement system for management service staff. Consultants make management service staff feel like second class citizens sometimes.
