    I have been working at Computer Futures Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great company that genuinely cares about personal development
    - Recently revised pay and commission structure which makes us very competitive against similar companies (they started these reviews from consultant/sales level initially which in my opinion shows great care)
    - Flexible working, remote working
    - Constant learning and development with regular training sessions and one to ones for those who require it
    - Clear and realistic progression
    - A real family feel around the regional offices
    - A innovative company that is actively involved in the tech industry and we have our own innovation centre
    - Support around attending industry events

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to feedback. There has been some massive changes over the past few years from listening to feedback and it’s certainly changes for the better, so great work!

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect, it's not about the dark art of recruitment anymore. It needs to be more service driven. Micromanagement has to stop.
