I worked at Aston Carter full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent meritocratic structure, with a focus on rewarding excellence. Good salaries and benefits, with an average commission structure. Great working atmosphere with polite and well educated colleagues, and a fun environment within which to work in this pressurised industry.

Cons

Aggressive management with a favouritism towards legacy performers. Serious lack of investment in staff. No appreciation for the fact that the staff may actually be brighter than some of the management and have the potential to offer something extra - the problem when dumb people hire bright graduates and money loses its motivating edge...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop looking outside and see what you had right there in front of you. It just needed a little cultivating.

    I worked at Aston Carter full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent induction period, well structured L&D department, many opportunities to grow your career and salary, teams are committed and very supportive to each other, sales targets are within reach. You are expected to work hard and long hours, but it pays of if you commit. Great place to build your sales foundation over every discipline (account managent, recruitment and business development) This is a sales job, so pushing yourself to the max is what is expected and what you sign up for. If you are not up for this, then don't go for it.

    Cons

    HR department is receptive to pressure from management, secrets will not be kept. After Allegis acquired Aston Carter many of the values and work methodologies which made the company great disappeared. Local management is underdeveloped. They acquire these position due to sales targets being met, their commitment and work ethic, but not because of their social, management or leadership capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to maintain Aston Carter's values!
