    I worked at Egon Zehnder as an intern


    -Company invests a lot in their interns
    -Give a lot of important work to interns - not busy work
    -everyone is very nice, lots of training and mentorship


    -not many as a summer intern
    -can't get to a consultant level as a research analyst
    -the work can pile up and interns are expected to balance a lot of different assignments and learn quickly

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Egon Zehnder.

    Interview Details

    1 phone screen, 1 onsite interview, 1 phone interview with the specific office i was recruiting for. The whole process probably took about 3 weeks, and was pretty smooth. Really nice people, and almost everyone I talked to was an alumn from my school. They don't have a separate recruiting team - they do all the recruiting themselves which is really nice.

    Interview Questions
    • Phone screen - background and resumé questions
      On-campus interview - 30 mins of background and resumé questions, 30 min case study. The case is not too difficult and usually involves walking through the search process (ie, they give you a search -- "we have been hired to look for a new Chief Marketing Officer at X company. How would you go about this search?) The idea is to be as structured as possible in your response, justify your assumptions, and communicate well with the interviewer.

      Office-specific phone interview - they just asked some background questions, and why I was specifically interested in that office.
