Former Employee - Research Analyst in London, England (UK)
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Salary is good, very good if you are a ED / Partner. Their list of clients is (like with all the BIG 5) impressive and historic.

Cons

Awful HR Manager (no warmth - very process driven)
Poor interviewing technique for new hires - often late - dont provide proper feedback - dont wait to build good rapport with candidates. Awful progression from RA to Consultant, Snobish attitude and they question the fact that anyone outside of RR could have achieved success in their firm in exec search. Feels like a place where those wich went to good Universities but with poor subjects go to earn big. High levels of turnover.

Advice to Management
