Only brand name value left

Partner (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsIt still helps to say that one has worked for Heidrick & Struggles, because the brand name has some historic cache even though the actual product has declined so significantly. Ironically, Heidrick in recent years trained(at its expense) a generation of top-notch executive search consultants who then either left or were let go and ended up being star power in other firms, including their own -- now taking business away from H&S.
