      "The worst mistake you could make"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Odgers Berndtson

        Pros

        As a brand they are great at selling the brand and vision of what could be an exceptional company. Office location is convenient Well known in the market Great at talking the talk...

        Cons

        Only certain part of the company do really interesting work. Management is awful, they oversee a culture of bullying and create insecurity among the researchers and associates. Micromanagement by partners across every detail of your work. No development as an employee, there is a preference to keep employees down rather than empower.

        Advice to Management

        Practice what you preach. Don’t lie to interviewees

          Approves of CEO

          I worked at Odgers Berndtson full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Overall it's ok but all depends on the department you work for and your manager.

          Cons

          It's not your typical personal assistant role and they should consider changing the name of the role. It's a cross between PA and project managing.

          Advice to Management

          More incentive should be fed down to lower level and not just for Bosses to reap the benefits.
