I worked at Katzenbach Partners

Pros

It's a job in management consulting

Cons

Poor culture and little to no opportunity for learning, talented people leave within 1 year, work-life balance much worse than other firms with 80+ hr weeks typical, MBA-level skills not valued, too many 24-27 year olds with little business experience in senior positions of leadership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to retain MBAs--business capabilities not there for people who came in through undergraduate channels

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Katzenbach Partners

    Pros

    Great people and projects with companies that are more befitting more established consulting firms. Very entrepreneurial and creative culture that is very collaborative. Allows its consultants to take leaves of absences which helps them build experiences outside of consulting. Pay is very competitive at the lower levels....in fact, junior consultants are treated very, very well financially.

    Cons

    Very little brand name recognition outside of undergraduate recruiting. Most people will never have heard of Katzenbach including recruiters, so if you ever want to pursue a career outside of consulting, you are on your own. Staffing can sometimes feel a little haphazard to some. There is wide variance in the quality of project managers from a problem solving and people management perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to figure out the attrition issue. Too many great consultants leave the firm.
