      Pros

      Austin Fraser is a great place to work. Regardless of experience level, everyone coming in has access to great training from day one, which is ongoing through your career. The culture is fun, supportive and inclusive. Really forward thinking company with lots of flexibility. Good career progression prospects with lots of rewards/incentives for hitting target.

      Cons

      Genuinely can't think of any cons to describe the company. The only thing that could potentially make things even better would be to have more integration between the different office locations.

      Pros

      - work atmosphere was good in terms of non-management colleagues - fun incentives - base pay wasn’t too bad but not anything special - office was nice

      Cons

      - was sold a dream when interviewing and it really wasn’t the case - your experience of Austin Fraser depends on what team you get put in - micromanagement is an issue - staff culture can be a bit ‘boys club’ - not really anywhere to go to express concerns without everyone knowing about it - got rid of some very senior and experienced staff to then employ low paid grads which was quite transparently due to financial reasons - MASSIVE lack of cultural diversity amongst staff in uk Office

      Pros

      From my first interview with Hannah right up to meeting the team and taking part in my AF welcome week (with Jody and Leon as my trainers), I can honestly say it has been one of the best onboarding experiences I have ever had at a company and I am so happy to be a part of this amazing team at AF!

      Cons

      none, amazing first month experience so far!

      Teaches you fundamentals, not for long term

      Pros

      - Good basic salary/ commission/ incentives etc - For anyone brand new to recruitment, the training here provides a great overview of how to work in recruitment - You do become like a family with your colleagues (can be both good and bad) - A flexible working approach, but trust wasn't fully established across the business - Central office location - If you are looking for career progression there is a clear path of how to reach targets and achieve promotions

      Cons

      - Depending on your team, there is still a micromanaged environment - A business still heavily focused on KPI's, very high expectations - If you pull an account you might have to fight tooth and nail for it if they decide to move your focus, you can expect your colleagues to earn all the commission whilst you need to find new accounts and you seem to just have to accept that. - A recent restructure has seen many highly experienced consultants let go and lower paid grads employed

      Amazing place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      AF is honestly one of the best working environments I have ever been part of. You really feel like your making a difference every day, the quality of your work is recognised and you are accepted as part of one big family. Everyone is valued, respected and people genuinely care. There is a real 'human' approach. Hard work is expected but results pay off.

      Cons

      None that I can think - apart from sometimes video calls can overspill and we could have less of these in order to be more productive. But keep on doing what your doing! It's a truly awesome place to be.
