How are the career development opportunities at Add People?

Pros

The culture is acceptable. Free coffee.

Cons

Employee churn rate is very high as there is a lot of office politics and favouritism present. Pay is poor and progression opportunities are limited. I would not say that Add People are an agency, they are more of a sales business - which is fine, but if you are creative and want an agency environment, avoid like the plague.

Advice to Management

cut down on the favouritism, you might retain people in the short term, but long term it is going to damage the companies rep.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Add People?

Pros

A good place to learn some genuine marketing skills in the short-term.

Cons

Claim to be people centric which couldn't be further from the truth. They are entirely sales and churn focused with employee workload and stress always taking a backseat. HR will speak to you as though attempting to memorise a handbook instead of having a genuine and potentially helpful and fulfilling conversation. The pay for the workload/stress is below the industry average. I would recommend that if you do take a job there to move on after 6 to 12 months.

Advice to Management

Increase your retainer fees, reduce workload and stresses for your employees, hire people into HR who know what they are doing and are not picking it up as they go. Maybe then your employee retention will improve.

What is the feeling of job security at Add People?

Pros

Some of my fellow employees were very nice.

Cons

In short; - The pay was derisory, even by agency standards - Management very much played favourites - for example, there was a waiting list for parking spaces on the company. On at least two occasions though, new starters were immediately given parking spots at the Marketing Director's instruction. - 'Junior' staff weren't valued/were made to feel expendable - Because of the above, staff turnover was high. A big deal was made about the average length of service being 3 years. The only reason that's true though is because the higher-ups stay becvause they're valued while the 'junior' members of staff leave for something better-paying where they are valued more pretty quickly. - Because the company focuses on getting lots of low-value clients in rather than a handful of clients with high retainer fees, the Sales team are treated like rockstars. At no point did senior managmeernt ever seem to realise that, yeah, the Sales team get the clients in but it's the talent and hard work of efveryone else that keeps the clients on board. - Employee concerns and grievances aren't dealt with. - Having spoken to other business owners around Greater Manchester since, the company doesn't have a good reputation - one MD said to me recently "I've heard a good thing said about them" - and the Sales team's calls are considered to be a nuisance. Frankly, it baffles me that the company seems to be growing.

Advice to Management

Value your staff - treat them with respect, pay them fairly and stop playing favourites.

Because of the above, staff turnover was high.
