    Pros

    Compensation is great and opportunity to rise within the firm is endless for those willing to work hard to learn the business.
    The people are terrific and extremely willing to help you be successful

    Cons

    Traditional search is changing- company structures are flattening, information is more widely distributed than ever, and executives are more entrepreneurial with their careers. Heidrick is adapting to the changes but its too soon to tell what its new role will be in the new search environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better information management tools internally to help consultants find and share information on searches, best practices, industries, and candidates
