    I worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners

    Pros

    Open door policy - makes it very easy to ask questions if your unsure of how to proceed or having difficulties with a task. Friendly working environment - usually you will be eating lunch with your division members and can get to know them on a more personal level. Responsibility from the start - SKP make sure that there are projects with which interns can help although there were occasions when some were put on excel sheet duty. Business knowledge - you get a very detailed insight into projects and pricing mechanisms whilst working there. No unreasonable working hours - if a deadline is imminent you will have to work late otherwise expect to work normal hours.

    Cons

    Choice of which intern is designated to which project is arbitrary at times. Best to find out in the interview round what work will await you. A very specialized consultancy and not the place to be if you want to acquire a general feel for management consulting because it will be heavy on sales and marketing, especially pricing. Very cost conscientious. The cost allowance for meals etc. is enough but will not have you screaming for joy.

    Advice to Management

    In particular regarding interns the company relies too heavily on recruiting from WHU and EBS, two well-known business schools in Germany. Try and mix it up a little more.
