"Good, but as a human capital firm they could do a better job with how they treat their human capital"

Former Employee - Associate in Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Associate in Atlanta, GA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

pedigree and exposure to some very sharp executives from many industries

Cons

it's a bit of an old boys network when you are trying to move up the ladder. The best way to join is to already be at the Partner level

Advice to Management

take some time to recognize the value of the people below the Partners. They may not be revenue generators, but we all know they do most of the real work that clients are ultimately paying for (save a few very active Partners)

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great brand
    Considerable untapped market potential
    Wonderful people

    Cons

    Not remotely strategic. People here think they are the McKinsey of search, but they are actually transaction oriented. Lose the talk of being "partners" to your clients until you can deliver consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Look inward once in a while. Some of the answers are there. Also, stop pretending to be McKinsey. Be what you are and be great.
