    I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Most colleagues are fun to work with -Consulting on the sunny side (all projects about profitable growth not cost cutting)

    Cons

    -Narrow focus on pricing -very diverse divisions (workload and leadership very different) -funny enough a very strong focus on costs internally (leads to higher bonus for partner but frustration among consultants)

    Advice to Management

    Invest in strategic initiatives and don't let your consultants do it beside the project work (e.g. IT projects, internationalization)

    I worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Im Pricing, Sales und angeknüpfte Strategien immer noch die Nummer 1 Wird immer internationaler, mit vielen offices, zwischen denen man schnell wechseln kann. Büros werden immer schicker Von der Aussenwirkung die beste Tier 2 Beratung IMHO

    Cons

Leider reagiert die Firma hier zu langsam und erkennt nicht, dass für Tier 1 Performance...
