    I worked at Russell Reynolds for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting projects, smart colleagues, continuous improvement mindset. Being able to work with top executives.

    Cons

    Different job categories treated very differently, consultants are the kings, researchers, knowledge specialists and assistants not really cared for. Ways of working depend lot on the office, and project team. Knowledge sharing and management not on the level they should be, due to internal competition. Workload not planned and proactively managed, can be heavy. Big egos among consultants and researchers, quite hierarchical....

    Advice to Management

    Researchers and assistants run the show, they should be given the credit they deserve. Incentives put on knowledge sharing.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Russell Reynolds

    Pros

    -deep knowledge gained for the practice you work in (Consumer, Industrial, Nonprofit, etc) -down-to-earth people were genuinely fun to work with -excellent knowledge sharing and intra-firm communication

    Cons

    -Recruiters and Partners are the real business generators, so career advancement is tough when starting in research as an associate or consultant

    Advice to Management

    -don't hesitate to solicit feedback from researchers on the way searches were handled, particularly ones in which the client was less-than-satisfied (which is rare, however)

    I have been working at Russell Reynolds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice offices People from different backgrounds with varied industry experience Very international firm so often interacting with people allover the world Access to lots of resources Training is improving Talks with external speakers are interesting Some good social opportunities Things move and change quickly Lots of work available with impressive client Brand recognition

    Cons

    Confusion about seniority levels within the firm Inconsistency/lack of cohesion High turnover Limited genuine opportunities to travel internationally Very heavy delegation culture - people at different levels will desperately try and make you do their work and publicly take credit for it - quite common across levels, and geographies, not just isolated incidents. This is just a regular part of interactions. Everyone...
