    Pros

    Great opportunities to challenge yourself and grow professionally. Talent Intelligence is great in training employees to be strategic, consultative and manage a project while also giving you the freedom to work and handle client engagements and challenges directly regardless of seniority level.

    Cons

    company, corporate structure around advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more structure around advancement opportunities for key employees. A better understanding of what is expected and required of employees to reach their individual career goals would be a valuable corporate upgrade.

    I have been working at Talent Intelligence full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to personally make a huge impact on Fortune 500 talent acquisition strategy. Ability to lead projects at various levels. Very little micro-management. Business model is very unique compared to executive search and recruiting firms.

    Cons

    Not having the ability to work from home. Could have more flexible "office hours" when specific accounts are performing extremely well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible on office hours if metrics are constantly being achieved. Put together a training program for individuals coming in ground level.

    This may be nitpicking, but the work area is too cold. Also, due to it being an office environment the days seem a tad bit longer.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Talent Intelligence as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented people with amazing personalities. This is TI's best attribute.
    The office atmosphere is business casual and professional, yet very down to earth.
    Continuing education is valued. They hold weekly educational sessions that are voluntary.
    Room for advancement.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive.
    People's active contributions are at times limited to only job requirements. I wish they allowed room for employees to contribute to other aspects of the company they might have expertise in.
    Some assigned duties may be very mundane and repetitive, could definitely be streamlined to greater effect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great. Although, I recommend allowing employees to contribute to other aspects of the company they might have expertise in.

    Great concept, some great people, a very poor manager in US

    I have been working at Talent Intelligence

    Pros

    The problems have been removed. The person now running the US is brilliant and knows this industry. This company does some very strategic and interesting work. The international culture is fantastic. Some really great people have worked at TI.

    Cons

    Management a bit quirky and lacking clear intiatives. Need good sales executive with C-Level contacts to expand in US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand how to hire and retain good employees particularly high level management.

    Caring company with great opportunities for professional growth

    Current Employee - Account Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Talent Intelligence full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company offers an opportunity to work on very interesting and challenging projects, often in a close contact with senior client stakeholders. It also gives their employees a significant autonomy and accountability, which contributes greatly to their professional growth.
    Moreover, the Management at Talent Intelligence is extremely caring and supportive of their employees in difficult personal situations. I doubt there is a more accommodating organisation elsewhere. I personally found myself in such a situation and I'm very thankful for all the understanding and assistance I received.
    Finally, there are some really great people working at Talent Intelligence! Talented, smart, and with a great sense of humor. It is a pleasure to work with them and be able to build long lasting relationships.

    Cons

    Minor in comparison to pros and values

    Former Employee - Talent Intelligence Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Talent Intelligence full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good high base salary with no worries of earning commission.
    Working globally on various exciting projects and having direct contact with client stakeholders.
    Leaving work on time everyday and being able to switch off in the evening, I never had this as a recruiter.
    Autonomy to manage own workload and really add value to client and provide quality and not quantity.
    Summer working hours - half day Fridays.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was very quiet when people doing research but at least you were allowed to wear headphones to listen to music!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team events and more drinks on Friday.

    Unparalleled exposure to senior stakeholders and accountability for own workload

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Talent Intelligence full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers interesting and challenging assignments that regularly involve working with senior client stakeholders. Even relatively junior employees are often afforded this face-to-face exposure. Due to the flat structure and collaborative culture, employees tend to be given considerable autonomy and accountability for their own workload from an early stage in their career, which is great for personal and professional development, as well as self-management, equipping them with the skill set required to build and lead a team as they progress through the organisation. Good salary, nice people, and a great place to grow beyond the traditional agency or search environment.

    Cons

    Despite the positives associated with accountability, it can sometimes feel as though we are somewhat lacking in direction from above, especially during very busy periods when we are all intently focused on the delivery of work. The IT systems could do with being improved, although this is being addressed over the coming months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is now well-positioned for even greater success over the coming years, so keep building the client base and workforce. Implement a 360 appraisal process and use this to drive clear objectives and metrics for promotions. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing.
