    great place to learn about industries and grow knowledge - no skills training

    Research Analyst (Former Employee)

    Prossome excellent sr. consultants who provide guidance and insight
    access to a lot of research tools - great base for knowledge growth

    Consespecially in research promotions are pseudo-nepotistic
    no growth beyond role
    "you get used and move on"

    Advice to Senior Managementput some structure into your research - one person's opionion should not taken as dogma, especially when one examines track record of those that produce policies / practices / procedures.

    Decent place to begin career

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe company offers top class benefits and they express genuine interest in the well being of employees. People are fun to work with and the work can (sometimes) be interesting. Often fast-paced, which keeps things from becoming droll.

    ConsPay is so-so and raises are minimal. Bonuses are hit or miss. There is little to no ladder to climb. As an assistant there is almost no hope of moving up. As a Researcher there is possibility to advance, but there is a ceiling. You cannot become a consultant by working here. Consultants are hired from outside and they all have 15+ years of experience and an advanced degree. This is a place to gain experience, not a place to build a long-term career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore financial motivation (i.e. fairer raises and bonuses) and more opportunity for advancement might improve work productivity and motivation and increase retention rates.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Research Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsI work on fascinating client assignments and meet interesting people in the process of finding the right executives for my clients.

    ConsThe research career path is limited and becoming a consultant is not possible.

    Great culture, great learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEgon Zehnder's US offices have great workplace culture with professional, friendly researchers. Working there is a huge opportunity for professional growth and gaining a variety of experience across different industries.

    ConsEgon Zehnder is a very horizontal organization; researchers can take on more responsibilities within research but there is no path toward consulting within the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
