    Current Employee - IT Department in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Heidrick & Struggles full-time (more than a year)


    Decent pay
    Decent bonuses
    Great work life balance - plenty of holidays, 9 to 5, limited work outside of normal business hours, flexibility with working remote when needed
    Good people to work with for the most part


    IT management is scatter brained and politically charged at times
    Doesn't do a very good job at retaining talent
    No training/certification/skills development built into HR model - If you decide to work here you're on your own, expense what you can!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize and/or encourage training and certification
    Do a better job at retaining talent

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Heidrick & Struggles in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    A great interview process! Very relaxed. They just want to see if you would fit into the company. No case questions. There's also a pre-interview event for students who get round 1 interviews-- definitely try and attend it. It's a great opportunity to show the employers your personality outside of an interview setting. Brush up on basic Heidrick history (founders names, date founded, some of their biggest deals, etc...)
