Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Aspire full-time

Pros

Nice size company. Well established. Everyone in the business can have a say and have an impact. Very pragmatic. Decisions are made quickly and based on sound reasoning. We have a great reputation... in the market place and are very well respected by clients and candidates who who us and know our heritage. The Directors really know what they are doing, are very hands on, know everyone in the business by name and are very respected by everyone in the company.

Cons

Vision, mission and values could do with a refresh. Training in general is a bit of a work in progress following some changes to the business structure. Very organically diverse in all areas of... protected groups barring age. Average age of a consultant in the business has probably contributed to some recent high turn over.
