    I have been working at Russell Reynolds full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team with a fantastic office manager and senior leadership team in London. Opportunities to work on some of the most interesting search and advisory work in the industry with some of the best head-hunters in the business.

    Cons

    Intense pace of working with demanding consultants and clients. Opportunities for progression outside the traditional search business are minimal, although attitudes are changing...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people more and build relationships, transactional interactions are not the way to build trust and create a happy working environment.

    I worked at Russell Reynolds full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Thorough training around diligence and understanding how to leverage networks. Company designed customized, advanced systems compared to others in the industry and truly help with productivity. Team building activities are over the top; great for cross-pollenization across geographies and industries and much fun.

    Cons

    Management tends to over analyze albeit hiring, promotions, and systems. Mentoring is a challenge for such a flat organization.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize over engineered processes.

    I have been working at Russell Reynolds

    Pros

    Excellent individuals / colleagues Enjoyable environment Great place to learn and develop, but unless you have your own accounts it is difficult to get traction. Leading executive search firm

    Cons

    In ability to promote and develop internal talent Classic private partnership - if you arent a partner - you are there to make them money US business is not as strong as London business Unwillingness to share revenue Political.

    Advice to Management

    Become more open and transparent
