    Pros

    flexibility when it comes to wanting to pursue your own projects, open minded in this regard too.

    Cons

    German, Swiss and other offices are very strict in terms of upward growth; analysts will never be consultants and if you don't have an MBA, PhD or went to an Ivy you're basically stuck being an analyst. Partners and consultants do the fun stuff and there is little room to move in if you're looking for entry level.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of old school notions of seniority and strict hierarchies

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder.

    Interview

    The first round was a brief (30 minute) phone interview that covered the basics (past experience, a time you were challenged, a time you worked with a team, etc). Second round consisted of a 45 minute behavioral (much like round one) and a 45 minute case interview.
