    Limited professional opportunity and politics based on tenure NOT a meritocracy

    I worked at Egon Zehnder

    Pros

    Salary is competitive with the market. Partners are very capable and in general can add value to clients.

    Cons

    Egon Zehnder is a european company in it's culture and therefore is not open to new ideas or "free thought" to work here and do well in the research area you much be able to supress your ideas and be submissive. Things work very slowly here… Beyond research there is NO career growth, you will be a research for the rest of your life! Every other exec search company offers you the option to grow except Egon Zehnder...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. EZ is supposedly a company that provides its clients with management reviews and leadership coaching… so why can't that happen internally? There is a large disconnect between the research are and the partners that create 2 sub-cultures withtin the company when it ought to be one.
