Pros

A good opportunity to start in sales. A sales role for beginners and re-nound award winnin g training and products. Altogether a good wee number!

Cons

There wasn't many apart from an expensive canteen, however, that's the case everywhere these days! The toilets can be a bit smelly too but I'm a guy. Couldn't speak for the ladies.

  1.  

    Useful and helpful to your recruitment career but very frustrating and sometimes unrewarding.

    Pros

    The initial training they offer is excellent and is something that attracted me to the job in the first place. They helped me become a successful consultant although there were many aspects not covered. The branch networking is great and very helpful, especially when finding candidates a new role if they are willing to travel. They treat you fairly well as an employee and even for a large company can make you feel like an individual.

    Cons

    They ask too much of each consultant in the way of administration and paper work. They require a 'con call' for everything they do, which in some cases can be useful if used right but on too many occasion they can waste time. The commission structure is fair between consultants although to make any bonus and commission on a regular basis is extremely difficult, no matter how go a consultant you are. This initial training is brilliant, but it can take too long to have this and once this is finished there is little support sometimes, especially for a new employee to recruitment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management style isn't the best and can leave each individual feeling left out and unappreciated at times. They offer training on a personal level, but this is something that needs to be asked for before they do anything about it. Monthly reviews can be too much and can leave you feeling deflated.

    Pros

    Very good group of employees who stay in regular touch together.

    Cons

    Management isn't concerned about fair treatment. They are all about getting it right for the client, even then they make mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More skills courses need to be made available.

    Morale boosting team events need to reconvene.

    Stop cutting the headcount, we are being overloaded
