    Great Company!

    Research Analyst Intern (Former Employee) Dallas, TX (US)

    ProsThe culture at Egon Zehnder is fantastic. Consultants and analysts at different offices around the world work together in order to deliver optimal results to clients. The internship experience at the firm is absolutely phenomenal and one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. The firm invests significant time and money to integrate the interns into the firm and provides extensive training which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed the wide range of tasks and projects I was assigned and all the incredibly intelligent people with whom I had the opportunity to interact.

    ConsAt times I disagreed with the research approach of several team members on projects, but am unsure as to how specific that is to Egon Zehnder and not simply the consulting field in general.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think creating a greater bridge between the research analyst and consultant positions at the firm in terms of client-site interaction and responsibility would allow for significantly greater talent retention at the research analyst level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    most fulfilling porfessional experience in my career

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsThe one firm structure makes it very easy to serve clients around the world, with no internal arguments about aloction of fees.
    The compensation structure encourages great sharing of information both inside offices and between offices,
    The firm has much higher ethical standards than other search firms - we take off limits very seriously
    The fee structure, fixed rather than contingent, puts us firmly on the side of clients, rather than trying to just close the assignemnt on anyone.

    ConsGiven the importance of the assignments we work on to our clients, they understandably have high expectations and hence we feel under pressure to deliver on tight deadlines which makes the work quite stressful, but that is what all senior level professional advisory firms experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to apply very high standards to all sorts of internal recruitment and ensure that we are clear about our values and our business model so we attract peolple who will thrive in this environment.

    It has been a rewarding experience as I feel very much a partner to my superiors.

    Research Associate (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsThe benefits are fantastic, I feel very much a partner to consultants, and they are very supportive of a strong work-life balance.

    ConsAt this time there is a fairly low ceiling for the Research Track.

    Two Thumbs-Up!

    Research Analyst (Former Employee)

    Pros1. Great work environment! Very positive people around & a sense of well being promoted across the company.
    2. The senior management is very concerned about employee needs & regard everyone with respect.
    3. Manageable work hours, work-life balance is great.
    4. Ample of opportunities to grow as an individual and main self esteem.
    5. Team work promoted. People work for improvement rather than ego!
    6. Good employee rewards and HR policies

    Cons1. Poor compensation structure.
    2. Promotions on paper (designation) not too frequent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEZIRS should revise the compensation structure. The attrition rate is mainly due to poor compensation structure!

    EZI is a great place for recent undergrads

    Research (Current Employee)

    ProsEZI provides undergrads with a broad view of issues relating to companies and industries. The work is highly consultantive and allows an individual the ability to grow critical thinking and problem solving skills.

    ConsThe company is growing at an extremely fast pace in the US and requires individuals that have a strong work ethic and team commitment. At times, individuals are expected to work late nights and some weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour commitment to EZI's focus on clients is appreciated.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
