the highest-paying company in America, be prepared to really work for it.
A.T. Kearney ranked No. 1 on this year's annual Glassdoor list for offering its employees the highest median total compensation at $167,534, which includes base salary and other forms of income, such as commissions, tips, and bonuses.
The global management-consulting firm headquartered in Chicago rewards even its youngest hires with some of the most competitive pay in the consulting industry, and the average employee starts off with a base salary of around $143,620.
The reason, as Glassdoor's chief economist Dr. Andrew Chamberlain explains, is that there are certain "barriers of entry" to work at a premium consulting firm: employers like A.T. Kearney want to hire top consultants who have personal contacts, reputations, and specialized skills and knowledge.
"We provide competitive compensation to attract the best talent to meet the needs of our clients across the globe," an A.T. Kearney spokesperson said in a statement to the Chicago Tribune.
Unsurprisingly, then, A.T. Kearney is considered one of the most difficult companies to interview with. People who have interviewed there rank the process on Glassdoor a 3.7 out of four in terms of difficulty.
Like other big consulting firms, interview questions at A.T. Kearney generally fall into one of two categories: case study questions and experience questions.
During the case study portion of the interview, interviewees analyze a real business problem and develop and discuss solutions to the client challenge it poses. The experience portion of the interview is a more familiar format where interviewers can learn more about the job seeker's background and personal experience.
From Glassdoor, here are some of the toughest interview questions job seekers have been asked at A.T. Kearney:
