Good brand, but there is a reason the company is up for sale

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new CEO. This board should have done this a long time ago before the decline

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Honestly, really really bad

    Former Recruiter (Former Employee)

    I worked at Heidrick & Struggles full-time


    Pros: 1) The rank and file employees are great. Very smart people, hard working, friendly and collaborative. H&S has… Cons: There are major problems here: 1) Terrible leadership team. The CEO has no clue what he's doing and the company continues to tank quarter after quarter… Advice to Senior Management: 1) CEO and BOD to go. Everything else stems from there. 2) Remember that it's a two way street with your employees.
