I worked at Egon Zehnder

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    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.

    I have been working at Egon Zehnder

    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.
