    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Simon-Kucher & Partners

    Pros

    Good people, interesting projects. The work life balance was ok for a consultancy firm and people were encouraged to be involved in all aspects of a project.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great, promotion based on how well you got on with Partners rather than ability in role.

    Pros

    Laid-back culture in London office Genuine thought leadership in pricing strategy Flat organisational structure

    Cons

    No alumni network whatsoever Limited bonus upside Brand name doesn't have recognition at level of Big 3/Big 4

    Advice to Management

    Set up an alumni network! Lots of leading price strategy people are SKP alumni, but there's absolutely nothing to help us network and catch the latest trends from pricing.

    I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good culture and generally good working hours for consultancy. Exciting projects with the chance to grab excellent experience at relatively junior levels, and excellent progression potential. Friendly and entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    Some members of senior project management see consultants as tools, not people. Expectations can be high and work life balance can suffer on some projects.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the focus on consultant's life balance and happiness is maintained consistently across the organisation by consistently enforcing standards to project management. Try to maintain the entrepreneurial culture and not get bogged down in formal processes and cost cutting.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners

    Pros

    The senior management is very supportive of consultant personal and professional growth. Most importantly the roles are generally client facing making individual learning process is better.

    Cons

    The consultant peer group may lack sufficient experience, but the senior management experience more than makes up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the entrepreneurial culture alive as long as possible. With the high amount of growth plans for the company the risk of losing this culture is high. It is this young spirit that helped the company grow so far.
