I have been working at Hays full-time (More than a year)
I started a little over a year ago, with one of the highest performing teams in the UK, working with some really impressive consultants and managers. During my time here; I have been promoted twice, and been put on the Rising Stars programme, aimed at future leaders. All of this has really enabled my growth both personally and professionally.
I am starting to take on more leadership within the business, as I am being encouraged to help the 2 new starters into the team, from a supervisory perspective. Knowing my manager is there to be the ultimate go-to for everything takes some of the pressure off, so I can still focus on billing whilst gradually getting more exposure to management.
There is a strong sales culture, which is good as it drives performance, but can sometimes get on top of you - and in these situations it is then difficult to utilise the management structure to discuss these difficulties, so very much not for the feint-hearted.
Advice to Management
Make mental health and well being pathways more clearly signposted, ideally away from direct management to have a 3rd party to speak with.

4 stages after the initial application; phone interview, open day, assessment centre, and interview. This seems like a lot but it gives you a chance to get to know the job role and the company so you can make an informed decision as to whether you would like to work there.
