    Current Employee - Executive Director in New York, NY

    I have been working at Russell Reynolds full-time (more than 3 years)


    - fantastic colleagues, stimulating work, fast-paced, never boring, truly global and joined up
    - collegiality, client first, constant improvement and reinvention are true watch words
    - great if you are self-driven and independent thinking but love people
    - great efforts around innovation and leading edge consulting work


    - never off - typical of professional services; client demands are non-stop; hard to take time away unless the world is on holiday
    - self-starting is critical to success - people will help you but only if you ask or raise your hand
    - substantial stress associated with the above

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - constantly create opportunities to bring colleagues together - we are as good as our relationships
    - better align incentives to teaming

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Russell Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter, scheduling an interview was quick and painless. Interviewer was polite, and extremely candid. Never in my life has an interviewer opened with "Boy is this a hard place to work!" - repeated at least twice. Based on her fleshed-out description of the job and environment, that assessment would seem to be spot on.

    In the end, a very positive interview experience, but not a fit for me.
