    I have been working at Spencer Stuart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commitment to quality of work is embedded in the culture. Clients are provided an opportunity to rate each engagement in multiple categories. Candidates are also allowed to rate their experience. The outcomes are extraordinary and industries/sectors are shaped by our placements and leadership advisory services. It deals with the most important assets of companies which is clearly their talent and leadership.

    Cons

    The job as a consultant can be very demanding. Lots of projects and clients which creates a high degree of urgency and can be long hours. Life/work balance may dictate that you're going to trade-off certain things at times. It can be accomplished, but it can be hard on this line of business.

    Advice to Management

    Company is on a growth trajectory and hiring fantastic talent. Balancing growth while nurturing culture is going to be important in the next few years!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Spencer Stuart.

    Interview

    The process took a couple of months in total, including a few preliminary phone screenings and subsequently a series of in-person interviews. The in-person interviews were largely a review/overview of your resume and tying in relevant correlations to the Associate position. After this round, to my knowledge, was the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to review one my interviewers resumes and provide an assessment to the consultant as if I were recruiting them as a candidate for their current role at Spencer Stuart.   Answer Question
