    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

    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.

    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.


  11. "Full Time Research"
