Pros

Hours are good, you earn your money on commission, if you work hard you get massive rewards, such as holidays abroad, rolex watches, lunch at posh restaurants etc. Can (and it has been done) make £100,000 in your first year. Very entrepreneurial company to work for.

Cons

Performance related environment, the commission side of it has a flip side that leads to a very stressful job, your performance is constantly being reviewed.

Advice to Management

Try to improve retention of the junior consultants, but a lot of this loss is in the end probably the best for both parties. Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    Because they try to give a great sell on all how you can earn all this money. That you can go on some amazing trips all paid for. Organic growth.

    Cons

    It is expected of you that you work till 8pm and come in on the weekend and if you don’t you get fround apon, because you actually have a life outside of work.

    They say they have organic growth but all the managers get brought in from overseas leaving no opportunity to grow into a leader in the office.

    If you are eating after 9.01am or 2.01pm forget it, that is not allowed. If you are 1 minute late forget having lunch for the next few days as you will be manning the phones for everyone in the office. Going to the bathroom between 9-6pm is also scary.

    If you would like to be verbally abused and cursed at for anything bad you have done, you would love this place.
    If you are not offended by being called the F and C word everyday for no reasons at all, this is a great opportunity for you.

    Advice to Management

    Change your style.

  2. Unethical to the core

    Pros

    good incentive programs (team dinners, happy hours etc...not $$)
    happy hours
    introductory sales training

    Cons

    cookie cutter approach to success
    "culture" is all surface level
    standard operating procedures produce animosity among colleagues
    extremely unethical way to go about headhunting
    transaction based recruiting rather than true business development with a focus on longevity
    micro management
    Little room for growth into management- they bring over people from the UK to sit on management teams

    Advice to Management

    success is in billing #s, not data entry
