accompanied on your path.
We believe that sustained success is built on understanding, respecting and developing the individual. On enhancing your talents and helping you develop your potential. This means providing trust and support. This means placing the power to progress exactly where it should be: with you.
The first 100 days
A new work place, a new environment and not a clue? Not with us! We want you to feel good in your new role as a consultant as fast as possible. Here's what to expect from your first 100 days at Roland Berger.
We organize Kickoff Training several times a year. You'll join new colleagues from offices worldwide, spending two weeks preparing for your new responsibilities. You'll attend workshops, lectures, case studies and team exercises, learning new tools and methods.
You'll be forming new friendships with colleagues across the Roland Berger network – relationships that will last you far beyond your first two weeks.
We believe in training on the job. It's the fastest way to learn and we know you're keen to take on responsibility. We'll provide you with the background information on projects and clients to get you up to speed. Your new colleagues will be there to support you, too.
Depending on your office location, four days a week are typically spent in different cities, working alongside your clients. Before long, these new cities start to feel like home. You spend evenings discovering restaurants and bars with your colleagues, or going for a run together. You usually spend Fridays in your home office, touching base with your team back at Roland Berger.
You’ve relaxed into your role. You have a close relationship with your clients and presenting to them is becoming second nature.
You’re invaluable to your team. Your Project Manager coaches you directly on the job and on your current project. A Partner or Principal mentors you. Together, you’re building the next stages or your personal and professional development.
Your first evaluation is behind you. Congratulations! We knew you’d do it.
You do you
It's important you feel good here. Happy, supported, confident. That's how you produce the best results, long-term. Thus, training and development are not an afterthought. They're the route to everything you can be.
Learning as a lifestyle
There are no challenges that cannot be solved. Often, the solution involves education, communication and teamwork.
What are the most effective and current models for hosting a workshop? How do I resolve conflict? How to refine my presentation skills? With access to an ever-developing program of over 50 seminars, featuring leading speakers, respected academics and the best coaches, you'll find the solution you're looking for, whatever the issue. Together, we'll take your skillset to the next level.
International and interconnected
Our fifty locations worldwide are your fifty locations worldwide. Your potential new homes, your opportunities for new perspectives and experiences. Whether as part of an international project or just because faraway places excite you, our offices are 50 opportunities to work in another country. To broaden your horizons and strengthen the interaction within the Roland Berger network, we encourage international project tasks and global assignment programs. Swap your desk in Moscow or Munich for a few months or years in an office in Chicago or Amsterdam, for example. You can assist a client in London or support the development of new markets – perhaps in the Middle East or Southeast Asia.
Four years later, I wanted to take on a new challenge, meet new people, experience a different culture and work for new clients. My mentor supported this ambition and facilitated my transfer to our Amsterdam office. My new colleagues have been welcoming and supporting, from helping me work out the administrative details, to ensuring project staffing is in line with my interests and skills and helping me integrate within the team.
This is what makes our company unique: a truly entrepreneurial culture, where each of us gets to shape their own individual development path and fulfil their potential.
MBAs are one of the best way to grow. If you see yourself completing an MBA at a top university, we'll help you. We'll assist your application and provide you with time off and financial support. You'll learn alongside some of the world's top business talent and return with fresh ideas, new tools, an international network and an entirely new perspective.
MBAs are valuable. Leading professors teach advanced tools and theories in economics, finance, marketing, business modeling, organization, leadership skills – the ideal groundwork for a career in management consulting. And you’re part of a broad network of talented and committed professionals. Contacts that last an entire career.
Roland Berger supported me throughout my MBA application and course, providing me with financial sponsorship and a strong network of business professionals for guidance.
The uniquely skilled
You've achieved outstanding results, even by Roland Berger's high standards. Welcome to our Challenge Club. This is where we bring our very top talent together in a relaxed, supportive environment. You'll have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and partake in top-level training and individual coaching.
Challenge Club is also about for making friends within the global RB family. We shared ideas and learnt from each other. And we still keep in touch. These events are in great locations. Lisbon's costal sunshine and Dublin's historic city took me right out of my everyday environment. I can say I'm proud to be part of Challenge Club.
Let's stay connected
Once you are part of our team, that bond doesn't break. Our alumni extend internationally. Former consultants now hold positions as CEOs and board members or have launched successful business ventures. We're entrepreneurs, after all.
Through our alumni network, we socialize, share expertise, foresight and discoveries, becoming deeper and broader. Let's build relationships and new ventures together. Let's stay connected.
My time at Berger was great, and I really miss my colleagues, but I'd always planned to move on from consulting to an executive role in business. My work as a consultant proved to be an ideal foundation for running Swarovski. I can draw on attributes that were trained into me as a consultant – confidence with numbers, a structured approach, strong presentation skills, and a strategic outlook."
Working as a consultant trains you in taking an analytical and structured approach to challenges and new ventures. Both are integral to my success now. Through Roland Berger, I experienced different industries, roles and cultures, internationally.
I was part of a team of exceptional colleagues and clients. We worked hard but had a lot of fun. I'm still in touch with a lot of them. Many have become close friends. I would definitely do it all over again.
