I worked at Heidrick & Struggles full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great SF office, fun collaborative environment

Cons

Company is being destroyed by poor management, the CEO is running the company into the ground while he advances his own political agenda. Sad really.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The BOD should get a new CEO, breathe new life into the company.

    Pros

    The office space is very nice and for the most part, your colleagues are pleasant, smart and helpful to you.

    Cons

    The workload is completely unmanageable and even though you have vacation time, you're told you're unable to take it. Unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to employees - tell the truth during the interview process and during employment - everything was a lie.
