I have been working at Heidrick & Struggles

Pros

Great global brand. Has some of the best consultants in the industry today. Some practices have strong, collaborating leaders. okay

Cons

Lack of management direction. Apologies for mistakes and then more mistakes. Lacks an activist Board that can insure strong leadership. Compensation programs keep changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Return to your entrepenurial roots. Stop adding process for the sake of having process. It is not like the company is doubling in size and therefore needs more process to be managed. Improve communication and stop relying on the same "6" people for advice and leadership roles. You have 350+ consultants - get the other 344 involved!
