I worked at Morgan McKinley part-time for more than a year

Pros

Very advanced employer, great on marketing, social recruitment, excellent training programme.

Cons

Starting to change to become too KPI focused, business model moving to be more like a REED employment sadly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't become a REED hold onto that high quality independent agency culture - you will attract more experienced consultants that way.

    I worked at Morgan McKinley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great I.T. good systems to work on and run by people interested in making a difference to your job Really good marketing department with good ideas that supported the business.

    Cons

    Morgan McKinley wants to be like Michael Page, Robert Half, Badenoch and Clarke or Investigo. The problem is that as they don't have the ability to persuade large stellar clients to recruit on their behalf then the very best candidates only come to Morgan McKinley as maybe their 8th or 9th choice if at all. The recruitment consultants are mostly supposed to find vacancies for themselves by representing the odd decent candidate they manage to meet to everyone in their local area. When a company is interested in the candidate they usually also need a comparison for interview. This is really when Morgan McKinley just cannot compete, as the bigger and better agencies have all those candidates.
    It's chicken and egg but they have no chance in a job market that is flooded by good candidates while they still don't have the candidates.
    They base success on other company achievement and "performance manage" to those standards. There is no useful advice when a consultant fails. There is massive staff turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be something you aren't. Grow slowly and treat people fairly. Try to keep staff. Getting graduates to do a difficult sales role isn't fair if even experienced staff can't meet your expectations.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    i love this place although its not entirely perfect. i have joined many recruitment companies over the last 10 - 12 years recruitment experience and morgan mckinley is one of the best.

    im a senior local hire for almost 1 year..

    not sure why some reviews stating it's political or a bad place? i guess we have to manage our own expectations and understand each other point of views.

    Cons

    as ireland is the hq, more emphasis are given and a lot of initiatives starts from the hq which is quite common. however looking at APAC market and its competitiveness, it's better to kick start some process, implement it in APAC office first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work.
