    I worked at A&E Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had worked under two of the most incredible and inspirational managers who I have had to fortune to work with. The team itself was brilliant as I met a group of fun and outgoing people who are all keen to get to the next level, help is always given if asked for.

    Cons

    As with any recruitment company if your not one for hard work this isn't for you. But if you want to make money, work hard and grow a team there is no better place.

    I worked at A&E Agency full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good location to work
    Some nice people in the office

    Cons

    They make you phone up hospitals and pretend to be someone else , which is wrong NHS beware

    Senior manager recruitment/account managers try to belittle you at any time

    Commission structure isn't made fully clear

    work long hours and when your late by 10 mins or so they will give you cheeky comments

    Advice to Management

    Stop your headhunting rubbish by calling up hospitals across the UK pretending be someone your not just for your own financial benefits

    Have a more objective and honest interview process, instead having a muppet recruitment process

    I worked at A&E Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some of the funniest people i have ever met

    Cons

    Worked my socks off - hit targets never received my pay rise as stated on the career path

    Advice to Management

    Look after your front line and the front line will look after your business. Stop looking after favourites.

    I worked at A&E Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that have historically worked there are great characters

    Cons

    The company are stuck in the stone ages, the targets they set are outdated. The company dont take into account the crash of market.

    Many times i was told the commission structure is the best out there - 10% of everything you bill so if you bill 20k (which isnt possible to with a cold desk anymore) in a month you take home 2k which is rubbish and would probably take you about 3-4 years at to get to that per month by waiting for people to leave and taking over their desk (if its given to you). I've recently moved to another medical firm and have made 3k commission in my first 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Dont sell people dreams and say the job is 'easy' and you'll make loads of money

    Youve lost alot of good people as your still stuck in your ways

    Promotion is impossible restructure your whole career progression structure as well as up your commission

    Have better incentives instead of team bowing

    Company is very stingy, dont spend any money on their staff regardless of the money the staff makes them

    Directors have stort term mindset and cant really see the future
