    I have been working at Austin Fraser full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    AF has provided me with an opportunity and platform to truly be myself and I'm lucky enough to have found an environment to excel in. I work with some of the best talent in the industry and genuinely feel like part of a family. We don't profess to be perfect at everything but we work really hard to create an environment for those that have the right values and work ethic to excel in and carve out a career. It's certainly not about working 12 hour days, although there is likely to be days that you may want to, but it's about ensuring we support individuals to work smartly and ensure they have the best tools available to help our customers identify the best and right talent for them. There are ups and downs in recruitment and it is a tough gig, which is why it isn't right for everyone. We have an extensive and thorough interview process but yes we have made mistakes, like all businesses, and have hired individuals that don't reflect our values or that can't work at our pace with our growth ambitions and they are not for us. Despite the odd, obscure and tainted comments on here we genuinely wish anyone who leaves us all the best for the future, evidently some may feel bitter that they didn't do themselves justice or demonstrate the right values....honesty is paramount for a successful career here. If you genuinely have the right family values and a sound work ethic to drive and shape your own career then come have a chat with us - you'll love it...... and it's a great laugh!

    I have been working at Austin Fraser full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity, growth, energetic, quality, competitive

    Cons

    Commission structure needs to be updated on the contracts side of things to be more competitive with other agencies. Contracts team is still being treated too similar to the perm teams in the office. Commission and payment plans need to be on a weekly basis rather than bi-monthly. Small team with potential for growth but definitely not structured yet.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay a lot of attention to how the contracts team is being built. Has to be a totally different structure than the other teams.
