Each year, we conduct a variety of more than 1,000 projects on these topics. Seeing clients succeed is what drives us, and we serve companies seamlessly around the world. Our experts work across all industries, regions, and continents, and for companies of all sizes, including hidden champions and unicorns.

Ravi, a consultant in Boston, was thrilled to find himself on a pricing project that saw a highly anticipated pharmaceutical product introduced into a market with a direct competitor launching simultaneously. Ravi and his team used quantitative and qualitative analysis and even game theory to predict market reactions and responses to the product. The results of the project fed into the client's strategic planning and business forecasting, and Simon-Kucher & Partners helped the company determine a pricing strategy each step of the way until the product launch. Said Ravi, “It’s exciting to be an integral part of the development and launch of cutting edge products and technologies.” Jon, a consultant with an MBA and a PhD in pathology, likes the fact that he’s able to be involved in projects related to his thesis topic through his involvement in pharmaceutical projects.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Simon-Kucher & Partners (Costa Rica)

    Interview

    2 Gespräche á 45 Minuten
    Im ersten Gespräch wurde mehr auf mich eingegangen, meine Motivation, mein Lebenslauf etc.
    Im zweiten Gespräch wurde ein sehr komplexer Fall behandelt.
    Vor dem Vorstellungsgespräch sollten 2 Fragen auf Englisch vorbereitet werden:
    1) What makes Simon-Kucher stand out as being different or interesting compared to other consultancies?
    2) Tell us about a product or service of your choice that you feel has a clever marketing strategy.
    Die Atmosphäre war in beiden Gesprächen positiv.
