I worked at Russell Reynolds full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I worked in the Boston office and had a great experience as a young EA gaining general office, business, and professional knowledge. Professional, hard working, knowledgable colleagues.

Cons

Culture is very professional, not much in-office friendship or bonding. I was an EA and was hoping to advance within the company but the opportunity was not there. A bit too serious for me at times.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Russell Reynolds full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Under current leadership, this firm is evolving as a collaborative firm and works at staying best in class. Everything at RRA is done TOP OF THE LINE - including events or outings for its employees.

    Cons

    While hierarchy exists (rightfully so) in organizations, the RRA culture is reminiscent of a kingdom's cast system. Forget about moving up from within and don't forget your rank at any time.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring from McKinsey or the likes in anticipation of revenues is reasonable but save room for promotion from within. Send your consultants to management training - the way they treat the EAs is appalling at times.
