    I worked at Egon Zehnder full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Research team is very collaborative. They selflessly work together to lighten each others workload and improve client outcomes. Best colleagues I've ever worked with.
    Good to learn how recruiters view resumes.
    If you impress a consultant, you get to interact with clients at a very high level.

    Cons

    Research management runs the analysts ragged. Fairly manipulative bunch.
    Consultants sometimes treat researchers as though they are worker bees.
    Long hours.
    No upward mobility besides being lucky enough to manage other research analysts some day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research management in the US needs an overhaul.

    I worked at Egon Zehnder as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Well established company within its sector. Very good work-life balance, with plenty of time off. Currently beating its competitors, and positive outlook for the near future.

    Cons

    I was hired as an intern post graduation, with a optimistic opportunity to join the company full time if I performed. Instead, the position was full before I even arrived at the office. In addition, work comes second to most of the employees, with many people choosing to take large amounts of the day doing pretty much nothing. In addition, many of the US offices are filled with old, dead-ended employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the large amount of uninterested employees filling up the offices at entry level jobs, and jumpstart the company by making real progression through the ranks possible.
