Pros

I worked for Heidrick & Struggles 2 different times and both were highly enjoyable!! The people are great, the work hours are flexible, Heidrick & Struggles is a great place to learn the Executive Recruiting business or expand your skill set.

Cons

If you are hired on as an Associate it is tough to advance to the role of Consultant; This is primarily due to the nature of the roles; Consultants are rainmakers and need to be very skilled at business development; Associates are candidate developers and as such may not have the business development/sales mindset

Advice to Management

Make it easier for Associates to advance at least to a mid level role between Associate & Consultant; from what I hear they have already done this and that is great!!

    Pros

    Brand still has cache
    There are still some very strong partners still with the firm
    Good starting roles as associates coming into the work force

    Cons

    Many of the good partners are long gone to other top executive search firms
    Work the associates really hard and underpay them

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO. This board should have done this a long time ago before the decline
