Blundering firm with blundering partners

Principal (Former Employee)

I worked at Katzenbach Partners

Prosthis is a great place for junior consultants, students fresh out of undergrad programs. At higher levels promotions to principal level is quite questionable, external hiring is quite random as well. Some partners are good at what they do

ConsVery territorial whereas one would expect a small firm to be more cohesive. most partners could not survive in larger tier 1 strategy firms. everyone works a level or two below their official title - most times!

Advice to Senior Managementits one thing to talk about empathy and informal networks and quite another putting it in practice. most of the firm is pretty much on different pages, with some offices reading different books altogether. Boy has Booz inherited a mess

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
