      Pros

      Brilliant management in the London office and training is fantastic. Very supportive environment and senior management are always there to listen to any concerns or criticisms and have the consultants best interests at heart. Highly recommend for any any level of recruiter.

      Cons

      I wouldn’t say there are cons. As with any job, you will get out what you put in.

      Pros

      The company is very invested in your success, they work very hard from the highest levels of the business, to ensure you have the training and tools to achieve your goals. There is a really good culture in the office, and there are lots of incentives to reward good performance such as holiday incentives, lunch clubs, company cars, and the velocity programme which provides a clear progression path outlining your targets to achieve promotion. SThree really values its staff, and this makes it a very good company to work for

      Cons

      Recruitment is a difficult business, and although the company can train you and provide you with the tools to succeed, this will only happen if you are willing to put in the work and the hours. There are tough days, it isn't an easy job, but it is a job in which you will be rewarded if you work hard and smart

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great training, great people. A great place to learn your trade and really try to push you to do well.

      Cons

      Micromanagement I had an amazing manager when i first started in the team. Things where going fantastically until one of the business managers from another office returned from a sabbatical. He is power mad. Dont get me wrong hes a fantastic recruiter and deserves to be in the position he is in, but he does not know how to get the best out of people. Great socially but in work hes just a nightmare. Constantly questioning where you are up to, asking if you have done the basics, and degrading your work. Alot of office politics:- Someone is always getting someone in trouble, backstabbing and name calling is all part of the environment. Drugs. They have a huge drug problem. Consultants and manager take drugs all the time. After leaving work on a wednesday evening they would go for a few drinks and before you know they would all be off their faces on drugs. Negative environment. Constantly having meetings to lift the moral of the team, trying to change the way the office is, offering incentives. it usually last 24 hours before its back to how it was.
