    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.

    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.
