    Pros

    Very welcoming to new comers. Self-starters and those who take initiative are appreciated. Your voice and your ideas are truly heard here. Great place to learn from experienced colleagues.

    Cons

    None to speak of at this time. Though, I am confident if I did have a complaint, it would be addressed in a professional and timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees. It makes a world of difference.

    I worked at Cejka Search full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Office and parking location was convenient near restaurants and shopping. Office area was clean and workstations were new and a nice large size so you didn't feel cramped. Some of the employees were great to work with.

    Cons

    Low salaries for "non-production" workers even though they work just as hard as production workers. Senior Leadership was out of touch. Management made promotion promises they would not keep and would not explain why. You spent most of your day covering your butt because of the constant finger pointing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat non-production people with as much respect as you do the consultants. Stop playing the blame game between departments when an error or mistake is made. And quit making promises you have no intentions of keeping.

    Pros

    Strong, experienced consultants Positive, helpful environment Greater integration with other companies in corporation with a stronger willingness to work collaboratively. Corporate leadership has increased their engagement and investment in the company

    Cons

    Industry as a whole has become more challenging Have spent the last 18 months learning to work with a different corporate focus - at times challenging

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the staff through efforts to identify new ways to achieve higher business results in today's tightening recruitment market. Continue to focus on aligning what is sold by sales team with the true work that the consultants have before them.

    Pros

    Real subject matter experts in the company from whom you can learn a lot about the business of health care

    Cons

    Managers in the business unit struggle a little with fitting in the corporate structure of the parent company who is so much larger.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be "hands off". Get in the trenches with your employees and understand how the business works

    I worked at Cejka Search full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great company with well respected , seasoned consultants . Now, lags the marketplace due to incompetent, arrogant leadership who have decimated the resources and totally changed the climate.

    Cons

    New cookie cutter, corporate culture that doesn't understand the nuances of the business are making broad changes that are adversely affecting ability to fill searches. Clients are not getting the resources they think they are because it's all about the bottom line, not filling searches. Prop up the stock price so everyone gets their bonuses,

    Advice to Management

    Cejka used to be the "gold standard", now they are K-Mart "blue light special

    Pros

    The culture is finally changing and the business is getting back on track thanks to new leadership. The leadership team appears to have listened and are trying to make significant changes to promote the growth and success of the company.

    Cons

    There are a few individuals who are lingering that can't seem to get that the old regime is gone and they need to move on. The business wants accountability for each employee and if they are unwilling to put forth the effort, they will find themselves being asked to leave. Everyone pulls their own weight. Everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and making the tough decisions that are your responsibility to make.

    Pros

    Great camaraderie among employees and excellent work life balance. Their location (Creve Coeur) is also easily accessible as the office is just blocks from I-270.

    Cons

    Leadership is unwilling to change with the evolving marketplace, instead hoping the market will return to the good old days when Cejka was going through great growth. Compensation is well below what it needs to be to attract good employees and benefits are horrible. Enormous office with too many open cubes makes it feel like a ghost town.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about Cejka's past success -- focus on where the market is now, not where it was 5 years ago.
