    I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people who are thoughtful, hard-working, fun, and enjoyable to be around. Early opportunity for responsibilities.

    Cons

    The promotion process is a bit ambiguous and poorly run. It's also relatively low pay compared to competitors with a small bonus.

    Advice to Management

    I would try to be more aware of team / office morale. When certain influential consultants or managers leave on a bad note, it can affect the office very quickly and when it's unnoticed by management, it makes it seem like they don't care about their employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Simon-Kucher & Partners.

    Interview

    The recruiters for the most part are really friends. Had two rounds over the phone and these cases focused on the division I was pursuing. Mostly pricing or strategy improvement. The super day was in office at Cambridge with 3 case interviews (at least 1 partner and then most people had at least senior consultant ranking for the other two). You also have a math exam and lunch interview.The senior consultant as mentioned here previously makes you do a simple excel exercise. The math exam is essentially GRE word problems in which if xyz happens, what happens to the variable. It is hard if you do not know what type of questions to expect. In office, 2 of the interviewers were cold and didn't seem too enthusiastic to be helping with recruiting.
