I worked at Heidrick & Struggles (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent Brand and global network

Cons

Bad leadership, partnership structure so all below partner are treated as dispensable resources.

Advice to Management

Make sure you have the right leadership at Regional and Country level - people who are going to lead the business with vision not just be concerned about their own practice.

    I worked at Heidrick & Struggles full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The systems and processes are great and enable to give results whatsoever

    Cons

    (most of) the partners are greedy, horrible people with no values whatsoever. The only thing they care about is their status and money. There is no real care for search and/or admin staff, just politics all the way along.

    Advice to Management

    Change the CEO, the Board, the Practice Leaders, less bureaucracy, more focus on clients
