Was not for me. Lots of boring work. Lots of hard work.

Research Analyst (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Egon Zehnder full-time for more than a year

Prosyou learn a lot. people are very nice. work with strategic people and big time clients. They are making changes and trying to make things better in regards to moving up

ConsNot great team work. you get to work with really experienced people but also you are so far away from their experience that you end up not getting a lot of training.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlay to analyst strengths.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
