Negative Outlook

I worked at ON Search Partners full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Some of the employees are pleasant. Many people pour their heart into satisfying the Partners / clients.

Partners personalities vary greatly as well as expectations and how they want to run their searches. Some have a lot of knowledge and a willingness to teach / train. Their training is intense but very short. I learned a lot about executive recruiting.

Christmas Party was great.

Health Benefits are very fair, though prices were set to increase in 2013.

They are focused on growth and climbing up compared to their competitors.

Cons

The hours are expected at 12+ hour days but to be available 24/7. They claim they spent their careers working long hours and demand it in their employees. They assume if you aren't stressed to the max, you need more work. If aren't working weekend, you need more work.

The training was abrupt without any time to ask questions. The company has basic documents, but no unified structure on how to do things. Changes from Partner to Partner and by mood. Some a very mean and overbearing. Others are rational people.

Management are bullies with egos, I've seen and heard them make junior employees cry. They are also the most moody guys I've ever met. They don't like anyone to challenge or question them and will intimidate and threaten you behind closed doors.

Advancement is impossible if you get on the "bad side" of senior management. They flaunt their wealth while paying very low bases and having a tepid commission structure.

Advice to Management

Don't claim you will be making 6-figures shortly if you structure it to be nearly impossible. Be honest to candidates.

The iron fist and intimidation approach is a horrible way to run a business.

    I have been working at ON Search Partners full-time

    Pros

    - Extremely talented group of people. Everyone has incredible Data/Expertise around a unique group technology/markets.
    - There are zero lazy people within the organization.
    - Hours are flexible as no one is ever counting your hours but the majority of the firm gets into the office early and stays late.(It is a cultural thing) some are at the office less than others but those employees are certainly working additionally from home.
    - Everyone is very helpful to those that ask for it.
    - Great group of people that want to be successful and help one another be successful by doing great work.

    Cons

    - Excellent place for those naturally motivated and hungry for success and growth (both on a personal and professional level).
    - If you are not naturally driven and motivated to learn and grow and push yourself outside of your comfort zone to your fullest potential - this is not the place for you.
