          I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time

          Pros

          I've worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners for several years. It's more than doubled in the last ~5 or so and the team here is definitely a huge part of that growth. There are many opportunities to take on a lot of responsibility early and get a huge amount of exposure both to internal leadership at the company as well as client leadership (e.g. speaking with and presenting to C-suite). It's also a great way to become...

          Cons

          Due to the company's fast growth, the team can certainly feel some of the growing pains associated with it. Those being that the busy season can be very busy and utilization can be very high for a long time followed by a short period of being on the "beach". There's definitely a steep learning curve here, but for most that's a mix of being a pro/con because it also leads to a lot of experience early on in your career.

          Advice to Management

          Hire more people to align with growth Pay more attention to the "little" things that can make a big difference in every day working life
