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

    Pros

    Comfortable timings and Sat-Sun offs

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value Work And please stop Playing with Words and petty politics

    Pros

    Great Pay, nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of micromanagement. The work is pretty boring, very mundane and lots of data entry. Hope you like linkedin.

    Work hard, no speaking. Think of your typical "Office Space" setting

    No room for growth. You can work as hard as you want, and maybe after 15 years you'll become a Research Director, but good luck ever becoming a Consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're all very nice people. Nothing bad to report about you, but I guess the industry is very boring by its nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the management should try to understand the morale of employess and tries to reduce staff turnover. Good companies always tries to retain their employees and both employer and employee will benefit out of that
