    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sometimes relatively acceptable work-life balance; Ability to become somewhat of a pricing expert; Nice people; low travel requirements; some interesting projects

    Cons

    - leadership unable to attract/retain clients - partners uninterested in personal/professional development of employees - lack of training opportunities - low pay - intransparent promotions - partners disloyal to employees

    Advice to Management

    - let unsuccessful partners go - incentivize development of newly appointed partners and employees - increase pay - remove division barriers for younger consultants and restructure consultant pool to allow cross-sourcing from all divisions

    I worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was in the Life Sciences division at SKP NY. I was trusted from day one to make a tangible impact on my team and to take on real responsibility. I can't imagine a better place to get responsibility early on and have more client facing opportunities. The mentorship was also great and allowed me to grow tremendously. The team was supportive and the culture was nice, fair, and reasonable. Additionally, the work was challenging. I was working with smart and motivated people. Our clients were companies with interesting challenges and I always felt like I was making a real difference.

    Cons

    The major downside, which can be expected from any consulting company in NY, were the hours. Up to 50 hours per week is pretty typical, but you aren't going to find better than that in consulting, especially at a successful company like SKP
