    I have been working at Egon Zehnder full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, feels like a family firm. Non-competitive feeling, collegiate atmosphere. Non-hierarchical flat structure, everyone likes to help everyone else in the office and globally. One of the top 5 global exec search firms, strong values.

    Cons

    As an Executive Assistant there is no real progression here because of the flat structure. Personal development is not actively encouraged enough and if you want to develop your career there is not much scope.

    Advice to Management

    Work on good career development for support staff in order to retain good people

    you 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

    Not 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 Management

    Play to analyst strengths.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    put 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.

    Pros

    Some good benefits, which can be found elsewhere also. Chilled number of hours. Weekends off is non-negotiable. Salary on time.

    Cons

    No room for creativity. No fun. Only work, work, work! Absolutely biased in its selection of people to higher levels. Political games everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Please offer us growth opportunities or at least skills training. no room for growth here. Leadership lacking in this vital area
