    I have been working at Russell Reynolds full-time (less than an year)


    RRA can be an incredibly rewarding place to work, but your experience will really depend on your sector/consultant. I was lucky and have the best consultant/EA/Researcher team in the world, but I can see how it might be tougher with different teams.


    Work-life balance doesn't always exist. As with all things, experience is make-or-break based on your team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think RRA is amazing and wonderful, but, undeniably, it could benefit from putting more of an emphasis on valuing EAs/Researchers. Perhaps having consultants undergo managerial training and workshops prior to starting the role and throughout their time with the company could help with this!

    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.
