    I have been working at Boyden World full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    great culture, supportive management, fast-paced, emphasis on professionalism, professional development is encouraged, pride in what we do, work-life balance. Also excellent benefit package. Been longer in this organization than any other and very happy here.

    Cons

    each office is independently owned, so can vary, but sometimes roles can be a little undefined, but feedback is encouraged and management is open door. Structure is a little flat - there is room for advancement, but only to a point.

    Pros

    This is a true global boutique search firm where the ownership is not one dominant shareholder or the city but the local Partners who own their businesses and an equal share of the holding company which is based in New York. It’s has a family office feel to it. High touch with clients and staff. It is the oldest Executive Search and Interim Management business so has ironed out over the years what works best for its staff and clients. Staff are generally well paid and well looked after but this does have variance based on location.

    Cons

    Growth in some markets is slow particularly where there is no succession planning in place. Investment is done locally
