    I have been working at Egon Zehnder

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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