Why Prognos?

Topics that make a difference.

At Prognos you can truly make a difference. Our work has an impact on the development of our country, our society and our future. We consider this relevance a great privilege – and a great responsibility. We take on every task without political bias, with the most careful attention and honest curiosity. That is what we are known for. That is what we are appreciated for.

People who inspire.

At Prognos, we are a team – closely connected across our nine locations, with an excellent staff of more than 150 experts from a wide range of scientific fields, from social sciences to economics or the natural sciences. At Prognos, we know each other, in some cases for many years. This means we know exactly whom to consult – and that everyone can be always approached. This personal exchange is one of our greatest strengths: A key element of our business culture is ongoing knowledge transfer and exchange of perspectives. Given our wide range of expertise, this not only makes sense from an academic point of view, but it is also a source of great personal pleasure.

Prognos makes working easy.

We work with a great passion for our clients and topics. Our job demands it. This is exactly why we ensure the most pleasant working conditions possible. This means: You get the infrastructure and equipment you need whether travelling or in the workplace. You can work flexibly, be it at the office or, when needed, from home or on the road. Plus, we can discuss anything else - from moving to another Prognos location to adjusting your workload. Of course, we will not be able to fulfil every individual wish in detail. But you can feel confident that we will try. One thing, however, is not up for negotiation: Vacation is vacation, and it must be taken in full.

Taking initiative? Most welcome.

Your team would like to try out a new form of teamwork? You want to participate in the "Women Together" program or maybe even launch an innovative project for the company? You would like to have an office dog? Or would you like to take up in-office yoga? Just go ahead and take the initiative. We are an organization of direct paths and dialogue. How our community will evolve is a discussion in which we all participate. In principle, everything is possible – as long as agreement from colleagues and alignment with our common goals are ensured. In principle, everything is possible - provided that there is agreement among the colleagues and that it is aligned with our goals. We are thinkers and doers. And preferably together.

Prognos combines leadership with attitude.

At Prognos, "good leadership" means more than reaching set company goals. To us, leading means: (A) leading the way with the right attitude, (B) allowing for individual freedom in the work, (C) making best possible use of the power of our community. This is our way of motivating each other for excellence and vigour. It all starts with listening: Our managers set time aside for employees. Even at the executive management level, the door is always open for dialogue and participation, because we want to know what you have to say – be it professional or organizational. We are not a major corporation. We hear your words, wishes and suggestions – and they carry weight. For company projects, we use the best ideas of our workforce and involve our coworkers in important decisions


Opportunities that open doors.

What do you see as your next step? At Prognos there is no way around this question concerning your future.  Clarity about where you are headed in your career is the only way we can work together to make it happen. In your way. At your pace. That is very important to us. Quite simply, we are convinced that satisfaction is the best driver for an excellent performance. Prognos gives you space to grow – career-wise, professionally and personally. 

Benefits: What we offer you.

A motivating company culture characterised by appreciation, collegial cooperation and a pleasant working atmosphere – that is what we offer you. For us, this also includes benefits that will really help you get ahead. From modern infrastructure and a vocational training programme to an Urban Sports membership.
