    I have been working at Management Search Inc.

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate culture. Your earnings are only limited by your tenacity and diligence. Not a micromanaged enviroment UNLESS you are trying to find out information from corporate. If you are comfortable only making $50k, you can do that in your sleep and you should look elsewhere. If you want to make $150k+, that is entirely possible.

    Cons

    Very high turn over of employees. No real structure to training. It's truely a numbers game and a lot of the training is "on the go" and situational analysis relying on commissioned tenured recruiters to "train and mentor" new recruiters without compensation.

    The world of recruiting has evolved over the last 43 years since the company was founded. Senior Level Management and outside industry "experts/consultants/board members" who haven't worked a desk in decades do not always understand the changing dynamics of today's industry/market. Ideas are solicited but rarely implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost a lot of talented tenured individuals over the past few years. If you truely want to grow the company then empower the "active desk" producers to make their own hiring decisions if you truely want teams built around them. The tenured recruiters will always do what they have to do to generate their billings and income but to take their commissioned time to break in or train a new recruiter costs them money in time and effort. If thats to be expected to develop teams, then incentivize them by not charging a draw. True recruiting is a 7/24 career. Implement options of flex schedules. 3X12s, 4X10 for those that produce. An income generating recruiter doesn't always have to be in the "office" to produce. They will do what is needed to generate their revenue.

    Anonymous Employee in Providence, RI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Management Search Inc. in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed several times with the majority principal. He was intelligent and easy going. Very knowledgeable of the industry. Provided great insight in this career field.

    Interview Questions
    • The only difficult question was when I asked the minority principal specifics of the training program he best answer was that he would listed to some of the hundreds of phone calls and add advice as I go.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    1.Compensation appeared as a drawer against commissions.

    2. Lack of defined training curriculum.
