    Great place to work

    Pros

    Very supportive team and management An excellent place to learn and grow in recruitment Lots of training and development opportunities Good work is valued Challenging but good for the right personality and people who want to work hard

    Cons

    Thinking can sometimes be short term (placements and fees week to week) and not focusing enough on the long term (building time to strategise) Could be more collaborative between departments Very internally competitive at times when collaboration would be more beneficial

    Nice people but not to work with.. selling the job prospect well but they can’t hold up to!

    Pros

    Very welcoming and make you feel part of the team - initially. Great idea’s of allowing you to lead the way independently in building your own desk ( but constantly putting blocks in with fee’s and idea’s that don’t comply with market.)

    Cons

    Do not have knowledge of markets out with accounts and finance but yet do not take advice or criticism from people with experience out with their main industry. The team soon doesn’t feel that at all and colleagues are actually battling against each other venomously to be in the top spot. The atmosphere became draining and toxic. Lower/ junior consultants constantly bursting into tears in bathroom with pressure and constant thread of being let go if sales didn’t go up. Very competitive and false environment! Like their consultants to bow down and be quiet. Opinions are null and void if management don’t agree. Very narrow minded
