    I have been working at Odgers Berndtson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing team, feels like a family; flexible schedule and holiday getaway discussions, you can take sick days pretty easy when you need them; free fresh fruit and veggies in the office

    Cons

    A small team, lack of performance is easily noticeable; small office, need to be the Jack of all trades, wear different hats and be able to multitask

    Advice to Management

    Keep on moving this direction, keep on promoting smart people and attracting sharp and hardworking employees

    Entrepreneurial, growth-oriented firm here in the US with a global network that is well recognized and extremely professional. Firm values integrity and doesn't tolerate sharp elbows or selfish behavior. Core group of talented partners and associates.

    We are an "underdog" brand in the US but getting more traction as we bring on some more high profile partners

    Pros

    development, challenge, creativity, biggest UK-based firm, regional offices which rivals don't have. trusted brand. solid range of blue chip clients a good culture of openness and transparency, CEO takes time to explain the direction of the business which is a plus.

    Cons

    Not in the magic circle so not always top of clients lists. Ownership model means consistency is a challenge across the international market and there's not a lot of secondment opportunities than you might get elsewhere.

    I have been working at Odgers Berndtson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm a PA. Nice building (London office), good location, fairly decent benefits although pension a little poor by industry standards.

    Cons

    Really depends on the Practice. Some are relaxed and easy going. Consultants are on top of their assignments. Others are chaos - lacking respect and totally driven by money. Strategic objectives are not filtered down because this is a financially driven environment.

    Advice to Management

    A culture of respect must be promoted and encouraged throughout the company. PAs and researchers should be valued across all Practices.
