    I have been working at Egon Zehnder

    Pros

    A lot to learn. Supportive team members. Food there is very good and most of all they are always ready to help you out with the issues.

    Cons

    There is no as such challenge regarding the work schedule but the salary is not that much high. Transport facility is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys should enhance the salary a bit, its really very low for the entry level designations. And also work a little bit more on the administration part.

    Pros

    Only good if you are joining the research or the technology team that is known as global technology team (GTS) in case of remuneration.

    Cons

    - If you ain't joining any of the above 2, you are in for a ride.
    - Adding to my above point, remuneration is low as well for other teams.
    - Do not expect swift promotions.
    - Employees have low morale.
    - No training and development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people trust there seniors, they rise to the occasion. But if they don't, they rise the occasion.

    Pros

    Salary on time and yearly bonus, weekends are honored (only in 1 team though)

    Cons

    There is absolutely no connect with the parent company; we are not a subsidiary, we are a service provider. Stagnant, you will learn everything in six months, after that it's downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with your employees and stop living in a self-made clique / ivory tower.
