"Recruitment"3 Jan 2020

Former Employee - Recruitment Partner

I worked at Hays full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good Management, great clients, good brand

Cons

No working from home, Progression not great

Current Employee - Manager

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

Pros

After working for a corporate agency that felt like school with their approach, I could recommend Investigo enough. You are respected in your space and given the opportunity to truly prove yourself.... - Great sales working culture - Always listened to by senior management - Treated like an adult - Flexible working culture - Good incentives - Commission structure clear and motivates to perform well - Incredibly talented consultants in the business - makes you strive to become better. - No rigorous KPI's, but more tailored to each consultant - Clear career path - Exciting growth at Investigo

Cons

- Promotional targets are the same across the whole business. Each sector recruit very different levels and can daunting getting to the target.

Advice to Management

- Keep listening to the staff and do not lose the 'Investigo culture' as we grow!
