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

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, ability to work without supervision (even if you want it)
    Great working with clients - helping them achieve their goals is priceless

    Cons

    Very low pay - way below market, only 1-way communication, only talked to when you receive a bad review - but never when you receive a positive review, nothing is done to build teamwork amongst other consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Local management - we understand that you are overloaded with your work, but stop and say "hey". When we reach out with a question - respond vs. just doing; build teamwork within the office with networking events. To the parent company don't be so damn cheep - you have very experienced people working for you and your pay is way, way below market, and the hours budget is unreasonable.

    Pros

    flexibility of hours, enjoy the work

    Cons

    Value is not recognized AT ALL in the form of comp, hours provided to service client load is unreasonable given expectation to deliver superior service.

    Create a culture in which people who are on the front line delivering service are valued! Provide visible and concerned leadership!
