Simply fooled myself working here

Research Analyst (Former Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I worked at Egon Zehnder full-time for more than 5 years

ProsComfortable timings and Sat-Sun offs

ConsI Slogged like a donkey for 5 years with no human respect and dignity...forgot about growth ..its a place where I wasted my time, career and health

A place where ppl are promoted based on being good in getting work done by others..with no performance record.

Rumours, which even I did not know about myself...with no one to dine with, to talk to ...I wonder how I survived all these..Worst discrimination That I went through..I literally felt like a untouchable in a village..

Advice to Senior ManagementValue Work And please stop Playing with Words and petty politics

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
