      Don't worry about comparing ourselves to MBB.... We love Kearney for what it is

      Lower brand recognition in Australia means you get worked harder and held to higher standard than an MBB team would doing the same work / than a Kearney team in Europe or the US

      Pros

      Kearney prides itself with working alongside its clients. This is something I have truly experienced in my time with the company. Fundamentally, this is enabled by having super smart colleagues who genuinely care about the impact that they have.

      Cons

      Consulting hours. The firm is working hard to build more manageable hours, but it is also an environment that will take as much as you are willing to give. This can lead to very fast pasted engagements.
