    I worked at Dartmouth Partners full-time

    Pros

    The best culture you can have hope for in recruitment. Supportive, friendly, sociable. Plenty of work to always keep you busy - potential is very clearly there for hard workers who enjoy recruitment. Very thorough in candidate processes, especially at grad-level.

    Cons

    Limited standardised training for juniors when I joined but this is in the process of re-work.

    I worked at Dartmouth Partners full-time

    Pros

    Generally hire well into the business, and a handful of good Directors will help you build a solid recruiting skillset as a developing consultant.

    Cons

    Some odd decision making from the top down, which I think in part contributes to a high attrition rate. Could reward staff a bit better than they do - it can at times come across as if the CEO / business is unnecessarily tight with the purse strings.

    Advice to Management

    It’s hard to reverse the KPI driven culture that the firm is moving towards, but maybe worth rethinking their approach to business development, which at times can come across as quite aggressive.

    I worked at Dartmouth Partners (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having moved on a few months ago I can say that the grass isn't always greener. Miss a lot of the culture and there are a great group of people

    Cons

    Expectations are high and the company went through growing pains as it "grew up". I hear that things have improved significantly

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere and some very good managers, especially compared to many other recruiters. Genuine commitment to training and development.

    Cons

    Has been a fair amount of attrition. Struggling to retain the young and bright, which could probably be improved by being a little more generous with comp.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to take on and then actually retain the best and brightest, you will need to start treating them that way. The company is very profitable and could easily afford to give a little more back to its employees.

    "Great Team Environment"

    I worked at Dartmouth Partners full-time

    Pros

    Great team environment and very professional atmosphere. Directors are very supporting and genuinely want to see you succeed. Very different from typical recruitment firms.

    Cons

    As it is a startup (less than 5 years old) they are very quickly becoming quite corporate where they used to not be fussed with KPI's and things, they are now much more concerned with numbers and stats rather than the actual work you are doing.

    Pros

    it has a collegiate environment that really puts effort into your growth and wants you to succeed. They are a growing company with an impressive client base and they allow you early on interaction with them.

    Cons

    it is a very chaotic time as they are very young still and a high employee turnover that doesn't allow for the teams to work that well together. they also expect a lot from you in the beginning of which some is purely not feasible

    Pros

    Zero staff attrition (to date), brilliant people, great culture and environment. Focused and diligent.
    Not sure who posted the previous review, as we've never lost anyone. Can only think it might be a competitor!

    Cons

    We're going to need a bigger office

    Advice to Management

    Keep going!

    "Caution."

    Pros

    They have some highly experienced people working for them, and, in my experience, they are very friendly and accommodating.

    Cons

    Sadly, they don't always pick the right candidates for the roles. A little disappointed with the standard - not a diverse range of candidates brought forward.

    Advice to Management

    You are bringing forward a specific type of candidate repeatedly - try to be more innovative in your selection process.
