Great company that needs to watch its culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Spencer Stuart

ProsA top notch professional services company. There is recognition of great quality work. There are some incredibly smart, committed, interesting people working in the firm, at all levels of the organization. Since moving to SSI from a competing firm, I have been able to perform much better because of resources, infrastructure, and brand.

ConsThere are still too many 'salesmen' with a transactional approach - the old school. Behavior that falls below par is tolerated when perpetrated by individual producing a lot of revenue - even if THEIR behavior prevents many others in the broader team from being MORE productive!
