I was so bored at this job.

Research Analyst (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Egon Zehnder as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood pay and benefits, including long vacations. Good opportunities to meet people in other places as well.

ConsBoring job, boring people....no opportunities for advancement. People who have been there for 15 years do the same things you do as an intern.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdd more variety to the work?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Highly capable and very international team; limited growth opportunities within Research

Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Egon Zehnder

ProsExposure to highly accomplished executives and opportunity to work closely with dynamic, experienced Consultants and teams globally. Understanding of corporate structure and leadres.

ConsInadequate compensation, especially for Researchers; there is also a glass ceiling (again within Research) and the promotion process/career advancement could be greatly improved.

Firm does not "walk the talk"

Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Egon Zehnder

ProsHighly collaborative
Interesting colleagues
Flexible work environment
International scope
Private company
Long-term mind-set
Small company feel
Encourages entrepreneurial mind-set
Stable financially

ConsPartners feel "entitled" and due to "lock-step compensation" often do not carry their weight and spend more time "looking good" than producing results.
Unethical and dishonest leadership in the USA. Double standards on how Partners behave vs others in the organization.
Selective enforcement depending on if you are a partner or not.
Very weak HR policies, procedures and totally incompetent HR management.
Clients would be shocked to know how the Firm was managed internally - full of hypocrites and unethical characters.
Too much deadwood - the US side of the business is going nowhere.
If you want to join, join outside the US.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
