    I worked at Egon Zehnder part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GREAT people to work with, very sharp minds both in Research and Consulting. Excellent name on your resume, especially for consulting post-grad school.

    Cons

    Work is total drudgery. Research is repetitive, demanding timelines, and NO path to consulting. None.

    Advice to Management

    I'd try to use the top tier talent available in research, provide a path for career advancement into the ranks of consulting/partners. For a company that models itself on MBB, this is a no-brainer.

    I worked at Egon Zehnder as an intern

    Pros

    - Driven, highly intelligent team of consultants that surrounds/impresses you every day
    - Systems in place for almost any event, good training & onboarding (they are an executive search firm after all)

    Cons

    - Corporate office setting and repetitive tasks can sometimes be a bore, depending on what office you are placed in
    - Serious advancement opportunities are only available to those with one or two advanced degrees (and, it seems, some management consulting experience at other firms)

    Pros

    Great people at the office in Chicago. Great location as well. Worked with Biggest and Best international brands.

    Cons

    The work ended up being a little bit repetitive. Also as an Intern you often ended up low man (women) on the totem pole and had to do some of the most menial work

    Advice to Management

    I would pair interns with a full time analyst and have the Intern be an assistant to the analyst rather that splitting the interns time between analyst
