    For me, executive search firms are for top positions, those who can normally cannot make contact with or even cannot easily know they exist.

    Major advantage is that this saves a LOT of time and if you find the right firm, they can help bring several qualified candidates according to your needs. (which in-house HRs may not have sufficient resources)

    But an obvious disadvantage is that it costs, and sometimes, executive search firms tend to beautify their candidates in order to get their commissions......
