    Pros

    Working at Guidant Global allows you to really grow and thrive. There's a people-focused approach that runs throughout the business, from senior management to interns. Anyone who wants to be part of a culture which is truly inclusive should choose to work at Guidant Global. Though it's a cliche in business culture documents, particularly in startups (I've also worked in quite a few), it genuinely feels like a family. The recruitment industry may have a bad reputation, but Guidant's approach to creating #ABetterWay means that it shouldn't be tarred with the same brush. For me, it would be an industry leader in any market or segment.

    Cons

    No cycle to work scheme

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, you're doing a great job.
