Thoughts on Simon Kucher? (Comp, culture, exit ops) Recruiter reached out to me but I don’t really know enough about them to know if I even want to go through the process or not

Comp is okay I think 100-110k for consultant level, they are focused mainly in pricing but their LSHC arm is growing, culture is office dependent (heard Boston is pretty bad, but chicago is slightly better, not sure about SF, check glassdoor reviews)

C1, do you know what timeline there is for promotions? Like does it take 3 years to get from C1 to C4?

I heard good things - solid T2-type firm, but focused a lot on pricing. Some offices are focused on pricing in specific industries which makes it even more niche (e.g. London is focused on pricing in Pharma)

Arrow Icon

Not true, average salary for consultant level is not more than 78-85k on the east coast (if that’s where they are trying to recruit). Very quantitative work, culture isn’t great. But it is a solid tier 2 consulting firm and the best pricing consulting firm in the world.

Have you ever accepted a job offer as a candidate(or had a candidate accept your offer of employment as a recruiter/hiring manager), and then rescind? I have 2 opportunities but the timelines are misaligned. I think I'm shortly getting an offer from one while I'm midway thru the process with the other. I don't want to end up in a position of saying yes but then getting a better offer and rescinding. I don't think I can ask for more than a week to think about it. Any advice on best way to handle?

Looking for anyone who’s experienced issues with merging two families together where there are varying levels of conservatism (religion, culture, women’s roles).

We have our differences (no where near as much), but talk it through and make sure to hear the other person out. Our mothers on the other hand are two very outspoken women who come from very different mindsets.

Joined MBB a year ago after an MBA and while I love the work, I miss having a life and hobbies, and I am generally a bit tired. Any current or ex-consultants here that can advise on what good exit opps are out there other than PE and corporate strategy? My criteria for a good job is fulfilling (something challenging with positive impact), comp and WLB. Interested to hear from people who have done this search or been through the process!
