    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.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Some interesting projects although most are standard engagements Many smart, friendly people with diverse backgrounds Global exposure Pricing and healthcare expertise

    Cons

    Below market salary with broken incentive structure Consistently poor work-life balance in many teams/clusters due to partner tendencies, constant turnover, inability to recruit, and lack of investment in support systems/ people Moral often very low. Managing partner emailed all consultants to request higher rating on Vault survey due to the known issues.... SKP’s ranking still fell

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

    Pros

    Amazing culture and life experience. Continuous training and climbing the promotion ladder. The company strongly promotes a positive work environment. Smartest and nicest people I have worked with who are always there to help. As a strategy consultant you are looking for three things - Interesting projects, creating real life impact, and engagement with the C-suite. You will get to experience all three here on a regular basis. Company talks a lot about valuing the entrepreneurial spirit of employees and they actually mean it. You get to participate in business development and overall strategic direction of the firm from very early on.

    Cons

    None I can think about except for typical consulting stuff such as travelling and long hours time to time.
