    I worked at DHR International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have to say, there are no good reasons to work at this company. This is a place with no ethics whatsoever.

    Cons

    This is a poor firm and I would suggest anybody thinking of joining them (or using them) do their research. For example, just do a web search for “DHR International litigation” and you will find an incredible number of lawsuits. Typically, the firm will fire people just as their bonuses become due.

    What’s going on? The firm is essentially entirely owned by one individual. That is highly unusual for professional services firms where ownership is typically distributed. The firm’s approach is to hire as many people as possible, give them an office and phone, and see what money they bring in. The preferred remuneration method is 100% commission. Either a consultant will bring in under their cost, in which case they will be quickly fired. Or they will bring in so much that there is an argument and DHR will fire them just before their commission check is due!

    The culture of the place, as a result, is very territorial with little collaboration. People will step on each other to do a sale. But the execution capability is poor.

    DHR will hire consultants (always out of competing firms; they never grow their own) and often give them fancy titles to attract them.

    DHR is now run by someone who had never done a search but is the son of the owner. Again, this is unusual. It is a PR machine: there are internal and external people who do nothing but PR for the firm. DHR lies about its market position. It claims to be the 5th largest in the US, but what about Spencer Stuart, Heidricks, Russell Reynolds, Korn Ferry, Egon Zehnder, CT Partners--there are at least six bigger than DHR!

    Don’t join (or hire) them blind. Do your research. Look for the track record. Speak to any of the many, many consultants around the world who used to work for them. Just do a LinkedIn search for former DHR consultants and reach out to them and ask them for their story.
