I worked at Heidrick & Struggles full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Supportive IT department. Excellent office support staff. Most folks are great people, suffering under a negative corporate culture

Cons

Original thinking is rejected. Risk-taking is frowned upon. Covering one's flank is the over-riding objective. Most communication is written because of distrust.

Advice to Management

Foster a better culture with genuine team-building. Stop punishing people for asking questions and offering alternate solutions.

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

    Pros

    I worked for Heidrick & Struggles 2 different times and both were highly enjoyable!! The people are great, the work hours are flexible, Heidrick & Struggles is a great place to learn the Executive Recruiting business or expand your skill set.

    Cons

    If you are hired on as an Associate it is tough to advance to the role of Consultant; This is primarily due to the nature of the roles; Consultants are rainmakers and need to be very skilled at business development; Associates are candidate developers and as such may not have the business development/sales mindset

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for Associates to advance at least to a mid level role between Associate & Consultant; from what I hear they have already done this and that is great!!
