A.T. Kearney (ATK)

new

Hi guys,

I've searched through the forum trying to find out information about ATK but can only find a few pieces of information i.e. the pay is good and they are a well respected strategy and operations house but is not as well known as MBBB.

Could anyone shed any light or insights on what the firm, particularly in the UK, is like? How is it faring in the current climate, culture / hours and how it is perceived? I believe this is a firm I would like to apply for.

Thanks

MBO to new (#1)

I have the impression that their reputation is strongest for the traditional types of OR-based projects (supply-chain, quant marketing, etc.), as compared to firms like Monitor or Bain who are best-known for branding-based projects.

Efficiency-focussed, OR-based, projects are the popular kind with clients right now, so I see ATK as being positioned to do relatively well in the recession.

Culturally, ATK's reported to be slightly more grounded than MBB, but only slightly. The short period of ownership by EDS wasn't at all popular, for example, and hasn't had a perceptible lasting impact on culture.

ex ATK to MBO (#2)

Good exit options - well regarded by recruitment consultants and firms. Not the same as MBB, but a good option - and if you are good at what you do, it will allow you the opportunity to excel.

Bounce to ex ATK (#3)

Several ATK offices, including the U.K., are doing very well right now but i can't speak for all of them.

Not the most famous brand but very well thought of in the industry. Not quite MBB but right behind them along with a few other strong strategy houses. Known for having a smart but practical culture which may explain the good exit options comments above - although i don't know much about that. Still recruiting at top MBA schools so strange there isn't more information on here about them.

Would be interesting to hear other comments about ATK as I have worked with them.
