    I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a current consultant on the LS team out of the New York office, I've had quite a positive experience at Simon-Kucher. The company is positioned uniquely, as being on the smaller side compared to its competitors but also still prominent and large enough to work with all major, notable clients around the world. As such, the opportunity to take charge and receive ownership and responsibility on smaller, lean teams is truly unique, and I've had the opportunity to learn and grow more so than I would have at other companies. As such, people here naturally work hard and also get recognized more given the smaller team sizes. Given Simon-Kucher’s expertise in market access and revenue growth, projects deal with key pressing monetization issues in every industry, and the company acts as a thought partner in building out growth strategies and future of clients. One of my favorite aspects of the job is how international the company is. Many projects scale across multiple countries and markets, and having the chance to gain an international strategic perspective while working with Simon-Kucher employees in Asia, Europe, and South America has been cool.

    Cons

    Intense, fast-paced environment expected out of any consulting job. Challenging, but good for people looking for growth

    Pros

    Amazing culture and life experience. Continuous training and climbing the promotion ladder. The company strongly promotes a positive work environment. Smartest and nicest people I have worked with who are always there to help. As a strategy consultant you are looking for three things - Interesting projects, creating real life impact, and engagement with the C-suite. You will get to experience all three here on a regular basis. Company talks a lot about valuing the entrepreneurial spirit of employees and they actually mean it. You get to participate in business development and overall strategic direction of the firm from very early on.

    Cons

    None I can think about except for typical consulting stuff such as travelling and long hours time to time.

    Below market salary with broken incentive structure Consistently poor work-life balance in many teams/clusters due to partner tendencies, constant turnover, inability to recruit, and lack of investment in support systems/ people Moral often very low. Managing partner emailed all consultants to request higher rating on Vault survey due to the known issues.... SKP’s ranking still fell
