    Pros

    Exposure to executive search industry, learning rationale for executive assessment and selection from an insiders perspective, opportunity to gain industry knowledge

    Cons

    very little praise for hard work, high expectations without commensurate earnings upside, very limited career path, some consultants treat you like their personal servant, very high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Develop a reasonable career path, do a better job of recognizing excellent performance, develop more training/educational opportunities, do a better job communication long term strategy of firm

    Pros

    some excellent sr. consultants who provide guidance and insight
    access to a lot of research tools - great base for knowledge growth

    Cons

    especially in research promotions are pseudo-nepotistic
    no growth beyond role
    "you get used and move on"

    Advice to Management

    put some structure into your research - one person's opionion should not taken as dogma, especially when one examines track record of those that produce policies / practices / procedures.
