I have been working at Egon Zehnder

Pros

Highly collaborative
Interesting colleagues
Flexible work environment
International scope
Private company
Long-term mind-set
Small company feel
Encourages entrepreneurial mind-set
Stable financially

Cons

Partners feel "entitled" and due to "lock-step compensation" often do not carry their weight and spend more time "looking good" than producing results.
Unethical and dishonest leadership in the USA. Double standards on how Partners behave vs others in the organization.
Selective enforcement depending on if you are a partner or not.
Very weak HR policies, procedures and totally incompetent HR management.
Clients would be shocked to know how the Firm was managed internally - full of hypocrites and unethical characters.
Too much deadwood - the US side of the business is going nowhere.
If you want to join, join outside the US.

    Pros

    Respectful environment and low turnover internally. A place that works collaboratively as a team. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a safe and longterm career move.

    Cons

    The only con is that as a research analyst you have little to no potential/possibility to become an associate consultant/"partner", therefore limiting the career upward mobility and growth.

    Pros

    1. Great work environment! Very positive people around & a sense of well being promoted across the company.
    2. The senior management is very concerned about employee needs & regard everyone with respect.
    3. Manageable work hours, work-life balance is great.
    4. Ample of opportunities to grow as an individual and main self esteem.
    5. Team work promoted. People work for improvement rather than ego!
    6. Good employee rewards and HR policies

    Cons

    1. Poor compensation structure.
    2. Promotions on paper (designation) not too frequent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    EZIRS should revise the compensation structure. The attrition rate is mainly due to poor compensation structure!
