Year after year, Roland Berger stands out in our rankings as the most impactful European-founded firm on the consulting scene. With a particularly well-developed footprint and reputation across EMEA, the firm is well-positioned for further growth and prosperity in the years ahead.
As an employer, the company leaves very little room for complaint among insiders. While hours have been tough throughout 2021—as they were across most of the industry—the firm’s mitigation strategies have largely been met with approval by insiders. And with good reason: 2021 may well have been the best year in the firm’s history, leading not only to stretch opportunities for all who wanted them, but also to a particularly strong year for variable compensation.
From its humble beginnings as a one-man consulting firm, Roland Berger has grown forcefully and developed a sizable global footprint. The market leader in Germany and the only native European consultancy to boast an international presence, its 2,700 employees today work from 52 offices spanning 35 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North and South America. The company provides a diverse array of consulting services to many of the world's largest corporations across a broad spread of industries, from automotive engineering, construction and chemicals to consumer goods, energy, environmental technology, financial services, machinery, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, public services, rail, telecommunications, travel and tourism.
One man, one vision
Roland Berger founded t...
“At Roland Berger, we seek personalities. Your experience will be taken into account seriously when applying. We encourage differences in people - we do not seek soldiers who all look the same. Diversity, true diversity, with a very human and kind touch can be found the most at Roland Berger. Here, you will learn a lot - from awesome people.”
“I would like to highlight how serious we at Roland Berger take sustainability. Sustainability is an integral part of Roland Berger's strategy and we have taken great actions already (e.g. Roland Berger achieved climate neutrality in 2020, and we are aiming for net zero emissions by 2028, which is two years earlier than any other major consultancy).”
“One of Roland Berger's three company values is ‘Entrepreneurship’ (next to ‘Excellence’ and ‘Empathy’). The company really stands for all three values. For me and my career development however, ‘Entrepreneurship’ has always been the one value that has made the difference. Roland Berger truly is MY company. From early stages on, I was given the opportunity to have impact, make a change and improve it. Doors and ears were always open for new ideas. Possibilities to drive new initiatives were always given to me long before I actually became a Partner. This is why Roland Berger always was to me more than an employer and why working here is so much more fulfilling than elsewhere.”
“Roland Berger has come a long way from the firm it once was to who we are nowadays. We value an entrepreneurial spirit, diversity in our team, and - very importantly - authentic personalities. At RB, you have the chance to actively create and define instead of being a part of something that already exists. We are far less process driven than other firms, which creates many opportunities for each individual consultant to find his/ her own way.”
“We are the only leading strategy consultancy of European origin - we have worked in different cultures and languages from the very beginning and diversity was always part of our DNA.”
