    most fulfilling porfessional experience in my career

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consultant
    Current Employee - Consultant

    Pros

    The one firm structure makes it very easy to serve clients around the world, with no internal arguments about aloction of fees.
    The compensation structure encourages great sharing of information both inside offices and between offices,
    The firm has much higher ethical standards than other search firms - we take off limits very seriously
    The fee structure, fixed rather than contingent, puts us firmly on the side of clients, rather than trying to just close the assignemnt on anyone.

    Cons

    Given the importance of the assignments we work on to our clients, they understandably have high expectations and hence we feel under pressure to deliver on tight deadlines which makes the work quite stressful, but that is what all senior level professional advisory firms experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to apply very high standards to all sorts of internal recruitment and ensure that we are clear about our values and our business model so we attract peolple who will thrive in this environment.

    EZI is a great place for recent undergrads

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Research
    Current Employee - Research

    Pros

    EZI provides undergrads with a broad view of issues relating to companies and industries. The work is highly consultantive and allows an individual the ability to grow critical thinking and problem solving skills.

    Cons

    The company is growing at an extremely fast pace in the US and requires individuals that have a strong work ethic and team commitment. At times, individuals are expected to work late nights and some weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your commitment to EZI's focus on clients is appreciated.
