    Current Employee - Executive Assistant in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Egon Zehnder full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company offers top class benefits and they express genuine interest in the well being of employees. People are fun to work with and the work can (sometimes) be interesting. Often fast-paced, which keeps things from becoming droll.

    Cons

    Pay is so-so and raises are minimal. Bonuses are hit or miss. There is little to no ladder to climb. As an assistant there is almost no hope of moving up. As a Researcher there is possibility to advance, but there is a ceiling. You cannot become a consultant by working here. Consultants are hired from outside and they all have 15+ years of experience and an advanced degree. This is a place to gain experience, not a place to build a long-term career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More financial motivation (i.e. fairer raises and bonuses) and more opportunity for advancement might improve work productivity and motivation and increase retention rates.

    I worked at Egon Zehnder as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Egon Zehnder's US offices have great workplace culture with professional, friendly researchers. Working there is a huge opportunity for professional growth and gaining a variety of experience across different industries.

    Cons

    Egon Zehnder is a very horizontal organization; researchers can take on more responsibilities within research but there is no path toward consulting within the company.
