    Pros

    Most consultants not too demanding, can work from home when you need to (but not recommended)

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

    Pros

    Strong caliber of Partner, consultative and honest work ethic, global, boutique mentality, emphasis on tight process, detail orientation and a great CEO.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis placed on Partners. Not enough training and support at recruiter level. Partners not incentivized to develop recruiting teams under them. Common problem across larger companies. CT have a chance to be different give they are mid-sized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to figure out how to grow Partners internally.

    Former Employee - Research Associate in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at CTPartners full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers were some of the most intelligent and interesting people I have worked with, and extremely professional. The Cleveland location is a great place to be, and the work environment is very conducive to getting things done.

    Cons

    The work is not always the most interesting, and the newer upper management has made some possibly short-sighted choices. They have taken the company in a different direction, time will tell if it is the correct one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the avenues for personal growth are very limited, with talented individuals often leaving the company.

    I have been working at CTPartners

    Pros

    It is a meritocracy.
    Work hard, get rewarded.
    Less political noise than other firms.
    Did much better than the huge firms during the downturn in 2008
    Fun place to work!

    Cons

    Firm still building it's brand in markets outside the old C&T space....less and less and issue, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't build too quickly. I support some of the best partners I've ever know in the business here. We've allowed a couple of partners in the door who are not as good as the standard. Keep the bar high.
