    I have been working at Egon Zehnder full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company really values the individual as well as collaborative teams. They provide opportunities above and beyond other management consulting firms to make sure you're developing and achieving your potential. Very impressed with the caliber of the people here and the spirit and values of the firm.

    Cons

    Just the usual cons of a partnership model meritocracy that is very flat and encourages autonomy over hierarchy, it really depends on the individual to drive the development of their career. We could also be better of "managing out" low performers more quickly.

    Pros

    In this job, you get the opportunity to work with some very smart, well connected consultants.

    Cons

    The problem is that many people in the New York office have severe personalities. While there are some truly great people at the firm, the presence of quite a few ill-tempered, rude individuals was able to cast quite a dark shadow for me and many of my colleagues.
