I enjoyed every minute I worked there.

Senior Associate (Former Employee)

Pros-Respect in the Industry
-Compensation when you become a Client Partner or Sr. Client Partner
-Interaction with Top Execs across the world
-You have a huge impact on the life of the candidates

Cons-Cliqueish
-If you are not patronized by a strong Sr. Client Partner you career could go nowhere
-Little opps outside of the search world
-The industry is very Cyclical, when times are good everyone is make ALOT of money, when times are bad they are cutting their staff into the bone
-Every SCP and CP has their own way of executing a search, there is little formalization of process in the org

Advice to Senior ManagementWork hard to base judgments off of merit

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
