Would like to know as well. Truly can’t get over the goofy name.

They are a global headhunting firm. The brand name originally was built on c-suite and senior executive headhunting and they are one of the best names in the business for those roles. However a few years back they did roll up a few acquisitions targeted at middle management roles into the brand (before those brands were separate). Summary - if you are recruiting for a very senior role in a fortune 500 company, they are the best. If it's middle management role instead, YMMV

Define “that good.” Are they the best, yep. Are any executive headhunters really all that much better than random...probably not.

Word to the other newbies like me. ALWAYS choose PPO over HMO for insurance (if you have the option). The extra cost is so worth it for the quality of your healthcare and your stress levels.

General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?
