    Pros

    Recruiting with Harvey Nash gives the chance to really sharpen your sale skills, build an excellent path for your career, master the art of multi-tasking, all with a fantastic base salary considering their amazing commission structure

    Cons

    Rigorous work-load - not a position for the unmotivated. You need to understand in order to make placements you have to be connecting with candidates. If you understand that and accomplish those tasks then the rewards are limitless.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - the commission structure with the added organizational contests truly motivate those within the organization.

    Pros

    - Great team that is fun to work with. - Fully stocked kitchen. - Great book of business to set up constant stream of success - Commission plan is best in the industry! I have worked at other firms, and this by far the best! - Nice work hours with flexible lunches - Team goes to exercise classes together at lunch - Manager is highly educated and adds a lot of value to sale - Great promotional structure based on profit and success instead of 'tenure' - Collaborative team effort to close business - Close to public transportation - Next door to the greatest restaurants and bars in the city - Run your own book of business -- you are not micromanaged - Work among team of people who are highly connected in Chicago - Respected reputation around Chicago so it makes cold calling easier - You always know where you stand in the company (Green, Yellow, Red, Blue rankings) and you will work on a plan to make sure you are profitable. Furthermore, people here don't just get "fired" and this is NOT a chopping block organization. They want you to be successful. - Team is health conscious so the office isn't filled with fatty foods. - Manager has positive outlook which helps motivate team. She also gets down in the trenches with the office which makes everything feel more like a team effort.

    Cons

    - No work from home option (Unless the weather is below Zero degrees. Sometimes when it's cold, they even comp uber to make sure we got to work safe! Very nice!)

    Advice to Management

    Management has been key to a lot of my success. My only advice is to have more "Sales Kickoff Trips" because the annual one is too much fun to have just once a year!

    Pros

    Great team to work for. Upper management from the US CEO to the global CEO are great leaders. Fun environment. A ton of money to be made if you work hard and smart.

    Cons

    Start you off with low amount of vacation days. It makes sense though because in order to be successful in this industry you need to put in a lot of effort up front.

    Pros

    Impressive collegiate culture and the resources of a large company. It was not afraid to invest to back its hunches and was underpinned by solid and cohesive company policies. A good place to work.

    Cons

    Not quite top flight and suffers the problem of any large company that it was sometimes a bit rigid. However these are not serious gripes. This company stands good comparison with the other top 10 executive search consultancies.

    Advice to Management

    None.
