    Best Environment for a new recruiter

    Pros

    Every agency emphasises meritocracy, but this is the first time I've seen it fully in action for promotions. Managers carefully consider each subordinate individually and although as any sales role does, you have your KPI's; these are far more personalised and assessed more on output rather than simply number of dials you've done during the day. This makes you far more comfortable aiming for genuine results and not being overly concerned with useless statistics. You then see how this system translates productively to all the consultants who ask each other questions like "get anything from your calls this morning?" rather than "how many calls have you done?".

    Cons

    Ultimately, this is a personal thing, but because of the amount of effort and focus spent on ensuring you reach the required level of skill for the role, you are put in some uncomfortable/awkward training excercises - but they are very beneficial for development

    After A Year Of Working Here

    Pros

    It's been an unreal experience working here. Everyone says how "great the culture" is at most companies, but from every aspect it is unreal. Everyone is a WINNER and you're encouraged to do well. The senior people who run the office are involved on the ground level and know everything about your desk. If you're willing to put the effort in you will be rewarded financially and career wise. I have been promoted to a management position, and am close to being promoted again. The office has almost tripled in size since joining a mere 12 months ago. Another example of how this place breeds and supports winners. The commission structure is without a doubt above average for this industry as well.

    Cons

    If this industry isn't for you, you will be exposed quick. If you aren't a top half biller you can feel very behind. This isn't the place to just sit on your salary and not strive for greatness. If you're lazy or don't care it is clear. No hiding in the weeds here.
