Pros

The team is fantastic. Smart, hard working, and very team oriented. When something needs to be accomplished, everyone joins forces to make it happen.

Cons

Getting the job done right requires long hours with no additional incentive pay. It can be quite exhausting despite the satisfaction that you recieve from making clients happy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would recommend that sr. management look at the long term effects of the existing compensation plans. Many excellent recruiters will be heading out the door as soon as the market picks up if the compensation program is not modified.

    Good, but as a human capital firm they could do a better job with how they treat their human capital

    Pros

    pedigree and exposure to some very sharp executives from many industries

    Cons

    it's a bit of an old boys network when you are trying to move up the ladder. The best way to join is to already be at the Partner level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take some time to recognize the value of the people below the Partners. They may not be revenue generators, but we all know they do most of the real work that clients are ultimately paying for (save a few very active Partners)

    No opinion of CEO

    Good people, but brand manager; not thought leaders

    Pros

    Great brand
    Considerable untapped market potential
    Wonderful people

    Cons

    Not remotely strategic. People here think they are the McKinsey of search, but they are actually transaction oriented. Lose the talk of being "partners" to your clients until you can deliver consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look inward once in a while. Some of the answers are there. Also, stop pretending to be McKinsey. Be what you are and be great.

    Disapproves of CEO
