The traditional search industry has in many ways been a victim of its own success. Bulge-bracket firms have created a huge service void that has left consumers of executive search services feeling dissatisfied and ultimately frustrated with a lack of overall performance. These firms are too large and bureaucratic and most have adopted a transactional, volume-based search model under which senior partners pass their searches off to junior and often inexperienced associates for execution. This deprives the client of not only regular communication and attention, but also of needed insight into candidates and human capital issues. In the competitive "war for talent", immediate and unfettered access to the best leaders is critical to the success of any search engagement. Most bulge-bracket firms often compete internally for sought after talented executives, due to the sheer volume of active assignments. Especially in the fertile life science industry, these consultants often have to wait until an executive completes the lengthy interview process with another of the firm's other client companies, before they can approach, losing precious time.
For our candidates, we provide superior service demonstrated through respect, consideration, and regular communication regardless of process outcome. We act as a career counselor and offer our insight in critical areas of candidate concern, such as organizational culture, compensation matters and provide ongoing counsel and post-placement follow-up.
