    Pros

    Good work-life balance for the industry
    Incredible colleagues
    High responsibility & opportunities for growth at all levels

    Kontras

    Slightly lower comp than other top firms, balanced by much better work life balance. For me, it is a good tradeoff to make.

    „Luck is needed: Interesting topics / Paternalistic management style and weak middle management layer”

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Simon-Kucher & Partners (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    - Very good knowledge base and know hows on marketing, sales and pricing topics
    - Smart and pleasant colleges
    - High share of analytical work (given interest in working analytically)
    - Overall, good training on marketing and pricing topics - opportunity to gain end-to-end understanding, from setting strategy, doing analytic, coordinating customer research, to implementation

    Kontras

    - Weak middle management layer (due to strong attrition at Senior Consultant / Manager level) leading to coordination / delegation vacuum (lack of proper supervision, bad coordination, unnecessary stress)
    - High share of primadonnas at director / partner level (narcissistic PhDs, paternal management style, starting at the top)
    - Obsession with only one metric - growth, leading to short-termism, decreasing quality of projects
    - Majority of partners are to 95% involved in sales and execution, and only to 5% in people development
    - Projects are inconsistent, from "very cool" to "I would better cut my veins"; so lots of luck are required
    - Pay is not competitive

    Rat an das Management

    Enforce the values
    Enhance people development
    Do not let the growth obsession to result in myopia

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Simon-Kucher & Partners (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    Very strong culture, meritocracy and fact based, driven by the people who started the company and still work there
    Interesting topline topics: won't look at cost cutting at all. Ability to drive/specialize in specific areas
    People are great (with very few exceptions)

    Kontras

    Big regional differences in terms of salary, responsibility and career path depending on office chosen: still very German- and US-focused
    Too slow progression and compensation below other firms
    Lack of proper knowledge management system or formal trainings

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Simon-Kucher & Partners (Über 5 Jahre)

    Pros

    Quick personal growth and responsibility from day 1

    Kontras

    - No strategic vision for the growth of the company, which is quite ironic, once you think it is a "strategy & marketing" consulting firm
    - Focus only on internal revenue growth as an obsession
    - The only relevant KPI appears to be €/day of work, no matter the size of the project or the relevance of the client
    - Many partners, especially the older ones, have limited knowledge of the topics they sell
    - Excessive vertical-ism of decisions such as consulting offer / topics to cover
    - German-centric culture, everything has to be done as in Germany
    - German IT, slow and unable to support
    - Work/life balance is the same as other consulting companies, except in Germany, where they live a bit better. Don’t believe what is said on the company website
    - Lack of transparency: many internal issues are managed poorly / in an opaque way, when they are not altogether hidden, especially if they involve people (partners) bringing money to the company
    - Unknown brand outside the German-speaking market, leading to complex sales to new clients and hard marketability once you want out
    - Limited attention to relevant new trends (big data, AI, etc.)
    - Pricing pricing pricing, it seems that everything is pricing, while there are many more areas unexploited, but senior people are refusing to evolve and become really a strategy firm
    - Poor management of the employees, with small bonuses and a tendency to save as much money as possible instead of improving the quality of life of people actually delivering the projects
    - “Cult of the Partner”: many of them perceive themselves as gods. In fact, they are Mr. No One in the industry and among clients, but still, watch out for their ego when in the room with them
    - Strict divisional structure, with no exposure to different industries
    - Bias toward PhD candidates: as the founder was an academic, the company favors PhD with no work experience in the real world instead of MBA or people with more relevant work experience, which is good, if you are a university, less so if you are a consulting firm

    Rat an das Management

    Get out there and take a look at what other consulting firms (the actual top ones) do, it is enough to improve the mess in your hands

    Pros

    Simon-Kucher is well known for pricing and especially in the life sciences industry. During my tenure, there was a great culture among the staff who often hung out together and were collaborative.

    Kontras

    Over time there cracks in the organization began to form. One of my biggest concerns is that the partners are now completely removed from the organization. They rarely attend events and, if you would like to speak with them, it is very hard to get time with them. Partners own the company and each of them thinks they are the king which creates a lot of conflict and tension. This also means that much of what the partners say is not true any more. For example, they say it is a flat organization which is supportive of individual growth but the partners are not accessible and they have been running as "up or out" for the last three years. These two trends show a clear disconnect between speaking points and the actual practice. Given how far down they are on revenue, they will probably have another round of dismissals at the end of the year (2017).

    Rat an das Management

    Your people are your most important asset, if you treat them poorly you're giving up on your future.
