    I have been working at Heidrick & Struggles full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It still helps to say that one has worked for Heidrick & Struggles, because the brand name has some historic cache even though the actual product has declined so significantly. Ironically, Heidrick in recent years trained(at its expense) a generation of top-notch executive search consultants who then either left or were let go and ended up being star power in other firms, including their own -- now taking business away from H&S.

    Cons

    Simply terrible leadership from its recently-departed CEO Kevin Kelly who was reviled and disrespected for years until an apparently clueless Board of Directors realized it. They must have been asleep at the wheel because everyone internally knew Kelly was in way over his head from the get-go,

    Advice to Management

    Shame on the BOD for permitting management to steadily run the firm into the ground. Stockholders should hold the Board accountable for the serious loss in stock value and remove the whole lot.who have been at the scene of this crime!

    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.
