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

    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.

    I have been working at DHR International full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
