    Pros

    It is what you make of it. If you have the drive and desire to take on a lot and go above and beyond and find a great consultant to mentor you, it can be a great place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Virtually nonexistent human resources/administration. The people in corporate management are completely overmatched and unqualified. There's lots of staff turnover. There's not a culture in place of hiring high achievers, nurturing them, advancing their careers, and growing from within. They would rather hire low achievers and not pay them well.

    I have been working at DHR International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k, health insurance, sick days, vacation days, etc.

    Cons

    Extremely cheap. Doesn't care about its researchers or executive assistants. Only the executive team. HR is condescending also, rude and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micromanaging.

    I have been working at DHR International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial culture, Strong teaming, excellent capabilities in US and Asia Pacific. Focus on clients, not profits. Family style culture in an international firm. Provide a two year guarantee

    Cons

    Brand is not strong, but we are able to overcome it with strong credentials and unique differentiators. Also presence in Latin America is weak, but the market is not strong either

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on building the brand and unique differentiators. Only hire search consultants from the top 5 search firms who bring strong personal capabilities

    Pros

    Incredible culture of collegiality and a family that was on full display at our annual meeting this past week. Engagement of employees at all levels was the focus of the event and connecting with my colleagues around the world made me realize how special this company truly is.

    Cons

    It is fast-paced and high energy so you must be prepared to perform at a high level from day one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The progression of the firm is impressive and exciting.

    Pros

    Collaboration- This is one of the aspects of the company that sets it apart from the rest of the industry. No sharp elbows here.

    Support- The support staff is great. Admins and Researchers allow me to focus more of my time on building my book of business.

    People- The culture here is unique. I have been on global platforms in the past, but it never felt like a cohesive team like it does now. The DHR team preached culture to me when I was thinking about joining and it does not disappoint.

    Cons

    Benefits- It is a competitive benefits package, but not industry leading.

    Pros

    Strong culture - if you work hard, you will succeed. Partners on down are top notch with strong pedigrees. Global company that does not feel so big where you are just a number; employees are actually cared for.

    Cons

    You must be ready to work in a fast-paced environment. Team driven firm with strong training and resources.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive compensation and a great way to expand your network.
