    I have been working at Lee Hecht Harrison part-time

    Pros

    Flex hours, ability to make independent decisions, lots of time focused on the clients and making a difference with them.

    Cons

    No pay raises ever, even for high performing employees. No recognition. No opportunity to be involved in change management initiatives. No development or career conversations. No opportunity to provide feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. You say you value people but you ignore a whole section of your workforce which directly engages with a large group of your end users every day. We have more first hand knowledge of the effectiveness of certain LHH products than anyone but you never talk to or listen to us.

    I have been working at Lee Hecht Harrison part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay rate; some excellent services for their clients; respectful treatment

    Cons

    Push productivity over quality performance; unresponsive to part-time employees; mediocre and unreliable IT systems; overloaded with VPs--sluggish responsiveness; not open to feedback from part-timers.

    Advice to Management

    sYou have employee survey so why don't part-timers participate? It is a different world to be a PT employee there. Why so many VPs who do't appear to be doing executive level work? Top heavy. You have good resources on-line for the transitioning candidates. Excellent, in fact. However, your commitment to personal, one-on-one services to these unemployed candidates is far from sufficient. You budget out hours by the 15-minute increment and exceeding the tight goals leads to borrowing time from the future or being squeezed so that the quality of the service has to suffer. Perhaps I should not care how the candidates feel but then you want me to average 4.5 out of 5.0 on surveys. How preposterous to expect such high quality reviews when we are squeezed with time leaving only mediocre service. LHH managers also expect part-timers to be accessing their emails as if they were full time. That is based on sending last minute emails about system changes or requests with little time to respond. So if you are not tuned in all the time (and not getting paid for it) how can you run it effectively? The management of time is passive aggressive, not bullying at least. I will NOT recommend this service to others by word-of-mouth. And I know what they charge because I was previously the paying customer before working here. It is about profits and bonuses, not personal service to candidates seeking new employment. What a shame.

    Pros

    Able to "practice my craft"

    Cons

    Pay is abominable, and no opportunities for increases EVER, even for great performers. Consultants not included in annual associate engagement survey (small wonder).

    Advice to Management

    You wouldn't advise clients to adopt this sort of pay practice, so why do you?
