500 corporations, private equity firms, and government entities. Our fact-based strategy, rigorous analytics, and implementation expertise generate original, granular insights that help our clients turn their most difficult challenges into game-changing growth and productivity opportunities.

Kaiser recognizes that our business success is possible in part because we have created a collegial and entrepreneurial culture that maximizes growth potential for our consultants.

Kaiser consultants support global clients from our headquarters in Washington, DC, and offices in London, Hong Kong, and Sao Paolo.

Careers

Career at Kaiser offers the best of both worlds: the benefits of an established strategy consultancy, including access to top-tier professionals and elite client relationships, and the entrepreneurial, collegial culture of a start-up. Kaiser’s longstanding relationships with top-tier clients across a variety of industries affords consultants a breadth and depth of experience not often found in boutique-sized firms. Our consultants create impact from day one as they deliver solutions to complex challenges of leading business and government entities around the globe.

Capitalizing on a wealth of internal knowledge, development opportunities at Kaiser offer the support necessary for our consultants to accelerate their growth. Kaiser provides motivated, entrepreneurial individuals the tools necessary to grow quickly and drive their own career in a culture that is committed to accelerating development. With the support of formal and informal development programs, our consultants are routinely able to take on more responsibility more quickly than their peers at other firms.

Every Kaiserite is assigned a formal mentor for the duration of their time at the firm. Your mentor serves as a resource for your questions, sounding board, and a guide for your career development. As you grow, you’ll have the opportunity to serve as a mentor and pass your knowledge on to more junior team members. We also offer unparalleled opportunities to build relationships with and learn from senior leaders, with firm partners operating an open door policy and working side-by-side with junior team members on a daily basis.

Our close-knit community engages and supports our consultants as they take on new challenges that drive both personal and professional growth. Each Kaiser office is comprised of smart and caring colleagues from diverse backgrounds who work hard and have fun together. Our collaborative environment encourages consultants to support each other and build meaningful relationships across practices and levels.
