I have been working at Marcum Search full-time (More than 3 years)
Marcum Search is a subsidiary of Marcum LLP so you have the boutique feel with the corporate backing. It is a very hands-off management style with an excellent commission structure. Of all the agencies I have ever worked for, this is the only one where management doesn't just sit in their office delegating, rather they run a full desk themselves and you can hear them on the phone recruiting alongside everyone else. There is no division between "levels" and everyone is on an even playing field. As much effort as you put into your job here, you get back 10 fold. Staff is fun and everyone gets along, making for a great environment! A very work-hard, play-hard mentality.
Another HUGE Pro is the understanding from management that sometimes things come up in life and you need to leave early or come in late, etc. You aren't interrogated if you have to call out one day. You are treated like a professional. You would be surprised that this is not a given at many agencies.
For me personally the only Con is the office location for the commute- but it is very centrally located by Grand Central with lots of restaurants, shops, public transportation, etc.
Advice to Management
Keep it up. Happy employees make more money
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marcum Search (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.
Process was very fast, which was great. Applied on-line, got a response the next day, and had a first-round phone interview with HR the following day in the afternoon. It went great, so a second phone interview was scheduled with the help desk manager. The day of the interview (a Friday)at the scheduled time, I get an e-mail saying the help manager needed to cancel the interview. No reason was given, and I was told that they would be in touch with me first thing on Monday. Monday came and went with no word from them. Now it's a month later with no word. No wonder this company, like most law firms, has horrible reviews.
