    Pros

    Great work life balance with option to work from home actively encouraged. Ambitious plans to expand and relentless desire to excel and achieve growth across sectors from senior management

    Cons

    Can be disorganised with processes and technology isn’t in place to meet business needs. Teams are lean and workloads can be extreme with little option to bring in additional team members to support volumes

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people /right sized delivery teams and getting the process/technology in place rather than winning new business

    I worked at Alexander Mann Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Career development happens, dependent on your account, location and how prepared you are to give up any sense of pride in actually doing a great job (rather than talking about how good you are) to anyone and everyone.

    Cons

    See above notes.
    There are so many people who talk in a language that only other consultants can appreciate and not enough people with any amount of expertise or real knowledge about recruitment and all it entails.
    It was a crashing disappointment going to work for AMS.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to take lessons on how to deliver with inspiration, the board ( with few exceptions) need to learn how to be impactful and the entire senior leadership team need to stop talking about themselves amd their journeys and start listening to their people.

    Pros

    They give opportunities to limited experience in the industry

    Cons

    They don’t develop people very well or communicate strongly

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and supportive of your employee’s. Talent acquisition is your business so you should know how important development and value is

    Thank you for posting your response. I am disappointed you do not feel we develop people very well at AMS given our focus on learning and development through the EDGE programme. Can I recommend you... More

    Pros

    Peers are good. Nice working with a bunch of like minded, smart people

    Cons

    Although flexible working is in place so great for people with kids etc but the workload is often very high so it is a struggle. Feels like the trade off to have flexible working.

    Advice to Management

    Implement more manageable workloads
