We all get calls from recruiters. So how can you tell who the professionals recruiters are are and which ones really have the capability to solve your companies recruiting needs? 

Here is our suggestion. Do what we do, check their references!

We put ours right on this page so you can read what our clients and candidates have said about us.  

What you can expect from PCI


For our clients:

1/ We do not advertise the positions we work on: We recruit only top caliber candidates that are currently in good jobs with good companies… they don’t read job postings.

2/ If we commit to your search we will take the time to understand the requirements of all the stakeholders in the hiring process.

3/ We limit the number of searches that our search consultants work on to a maximum of 5 at any time. This ensures our client’s open positions are getting the attention they need to be filled efficiently.

4/  95-100% of the candidates we present for any search are passive; they have good jobs and need to be recruited.

5/ Quality over speed; We won’t waste our client’s time presenting unqualified candidates just to impress the client with how fast our service is. In fact, it’s going to take us a little extra time; to identify, recruit, interview, and vet our candidates. And even then, they’ll likely need time to update their resumes before we can present them.

6/ Quality over quantity; we value our client's time. Therefore we will present only a short list of the most qualified applicants. This insures that our clients do not waste their time interviewing candidates that we know will not make the cut.

For our candidates:

1/ Your personal information is 100% confidential. We never send out your resume without your prior consent.

2/ Career decisions affect the quality of your life in every way; from how much family time, money, and stress you have, to how prepared you are for the next step in your career. You need a professional who understands your industry, potential career tracks to help you maximize the benefit of any career move.

3/ Our approach is to provide candidates with information about opportunities that make sense for them. It’s always the candidate’s decision to move forward, no pressure.

4/ We will provide guidance through the interview process; we will make sure you understand the process and know what to expect so you can be prepared.

" We hired PCI to complete a key search for our company, We needed a CISO and we were struggling to complete it on our own. Stew took the time to understand the requirements of the position through interviewing key stakeholders in the company. Given his understanding of Information Security, his strong network and his diligence in understanding the needs of the company, Stew quickly put forth several high quality candidates for our consideration.

"Stewart Koenig recruited me for JP Morgan in the spring of 2000, and helped me transition from a technical professional to business analyst. As a recruiter, he immediately understood my requirements and got me interviews right away. His communication skills and hard work made it easy to strategize for the interviews and follow up quickly. When the offer finally came I was thrilled. The company was a good match for me with a number of competitive, entrepreneurial possibilities within the organization. I have since referred PCI to several of my colleagues, and now that I am back in the market I have reached out to PCI for their help again."

Aya Shimada, Business Analyst, JP Morgan



"I first met Stew Koenig in 1999, when he placed me as a Sr. PM. At that time, he was one of many recruiters I had spoken with, but Stew quickly proved to be a standout with his sharp industry insights, strong sense of integrity, and ability to get results. Stew continues to be a great resource providing accurate analysis of the employment market, which is invaluable to me both as an employee and as a hiring manager. For any placement or hiring needs, I would definitely turn to PCI for assistance.

"I had the pleasure of working with Stewart more closely in 2012--even though he has worked with Maverick for many years prior.

He took great care in understanding the skills that we were hiring for and made sure that candidates matched our culture and standards. Stewart is very personable and I felt very in sync with him throughout the process. I was very pleased with the quality of candidates that Stewart presented to us.

I would hire Stewart to assist with my recruiting efforts in the future."

Bert Cohen, Information Technology Manager, Maverick Capital



“I have known Stew Koenig for almost 3 years and I have been a candidate and now a client. When I landed as the Director of Corporate Technology at a $400 million a year media and entertainment company 9 months ago I was facing a huge task. The challenges ranged from reinventing our existing IT organization, beefing up our infrastructure and initiating several large scale multi million dollar business intelligence and web development projects.

I realized early on that I would need several key staff members with different levels of management experience and very different types of technical expertise. Stew’s input was invaluable. He made several suggestions about the organizational structure of the department, scope of responsibility of the positions, adjustments to compensation levels between positions that kept us within budget and would allow us to attract the best possible candidates.

Afterward, I was quickly presented with a list of prescreened candidates that fit the bill. Then PCI stayed on top of all the details and kept the process on track so that we could stay on schedule. We threw several curve balls at Stew and he came up with very innovative solutions for us. Although, PCI saved me a lot of time and effort that allowed me to stay focused on my job, the real value was in the people they found for us. They truly raised the bar and are delivering great results.

Felix Santella, Director of Corporate Technology
Good Times Entertainment Inc.”



"Stew Koenig of PCI placed me as the CTO of the number two pre paid calling card company in the US, with $300 million in annual sales.  Stew knew that that my strengths as a manager exactly suited 9278’s requirements.  Now I count myself among the few who can say that I enjoy coming to work everyday.

Since I arrived at 9278, PCI has conducted a number of searches for us. They do an excellent job, the searches were executed quickly and the candidates always met, and in most cases exceeded our expectations. PCI’s approach is refreshing compared to the other recruiters I have worked with. They are low pressure, trust worthy and very professional."
