I have worked with Bayer Consulting in the case of a university project and my experience was that they were also often traveling but only to Bayer locations. Nevertheless, I would say that they are less traveling than MBB or other external consultancies. However, as you have mentioned it depends also on the inhouse consulting company, as SMC consultants travel a lot.
Other inhouse consultancies I know are i.a. Telekom, E.ON, Volkswagen, Porsche, Allianz, DB and Mercedes-Benz.
I hope this helps a bit.

Many thanks for your question and happy to elaborate on our general requirements:
- University degree: For Junior Consultants we ask for a bachelor’s degree, whereas consultants need to have a masters’ degree. This should be in economics (including related studies like management, business studies, etc.), engineering or science. For an internship as Visiting Consultant, you need to be enrolled in a bachelor, master or PhD course.
- Grades: We expect at least a “good” academic performance, i.e. a “good” in a German grading system, a 2:1 in the UK system, etc.
- High school diploma: Yes, we ask for your high school diploma. The overall grade as well as your grade in maths and science forms a minor part of our evaluation of your application. Hence, there is no minimum grade to apply.
- Languages: You need to speak English fluently and should be willing to learn German. To be very clear: You do not need to have any knowledge of German when applying or starting at ECON.
- Experience: Preferably, you have already gained experience in an internship in an area related to your studies. While naturally consulting experience is some advantage, it is no requirement for an application or invitation to our recruiting day.
- You can communicate in a structured way. This is a crucial skill for consultants, as we are often asked to structure complex challenges for our clients and therefore check this in the interviews during our recruiting day
- You are comfortable working with numbers and performing both quantitative and qualitative analyses
- You can show that you can work independently and push work to completion, e.g. in past (group) projects during your studies, etc.
- You can show us that you have a creative, innovative and entrepreneurial mindset, e.g. from past (group) projects during your studies, volunteering activities, etc.

Reflecting on my experiences throughout the past seven years at E.ON Inhouse Consulting, the most important thing I wish I had known at the start is the importance and value of personal relationships to clients, i.e. colleagues in other departments of the company. While decisions taken and opinions voiced seem to be entirely fact based and data driven at the surface, I have learnt that often very personal motivations drive people’s behaviour. Such personal motivations are also frequently not directly related to the project, but stem from a wider perspective. Hence, I find it today very important to get to know my clients and co-workers in the projects on a personal level, so that I can understand their motivations and values. This personal bond then helps in challenging project environments, when for example clients not agreeing with my proposal give me a personal call and openly explain their view rather than send an email to a larger group of people…
