    I worked at Evolution Recruitment Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some decent people in the office

    Cons

    Commission structure is terrible, all their marketing to attract new talent is based around holidays. No surprise as the bonus is horrific.

    Most Senior Management are awful, all in it for themselves.

    Worked at 2 other recruitment consultancies and both 1000 better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so selfish and arrogant.

    I have been working at Evolution Recruitment Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are prepared to come in, work harder than your competition and like learning from your colleagues then Evolution really is the opportunity everyone dreams of in recruitment.

    I had 2 years’ experience working at another Recruitment company and yet when I came to Evolution I learnt more in the first 4 weeks than I had in my 2 years elsewhere.

    The UK database is incredible and is well set up for recruiters.

    I’ve personally worked very closely with the IT and Marketing team, and they are so helpful. I’ve been in companies before where they hide behind emails but here, they are focused on supporting you quickly and effectively.

    There is a positive culture in the office.

    They have great clients all around the country (for Permanent and Engineering recruitment especially)
    The Senior Management is very switched on and is great to work with

    The trips you go on are incredible. I’ve been here just over 3 years and Ill have secured trips to New York, Tokyo, Krakow, Malaga, Berlin and (Vancouver next year)

    Finally, I work on the contract team and I’m very lucky to have some amazing colleagues around me. Contract is difficult at Evolution but highly rewarding.

    Cons

    The company needs more women in senior positions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on your employees and the results will come.

    I worked at Evolution Recruitment Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great environment to work in full of great people, there's a feeling that every team member wants you to achieve.
    - Directors/Managers really good at making you feel valued.
    - Excellent support and training throughout your career and additional support provided if asked for.
    - Feel like the company gives you the opportunity and supports you to to achieve your goals, even if those goals aren't related to recruitment. There are also processes in place for you to map out your goals and the business supports you every step of the way.
    - It sounds cliché but hard work is rewarded and the business will recognise it and continue to support until you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. I have a few friends who have worked for other recruitment companies, going in at the same level as me and there experiences are not as positive as mine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and investing your time in your employee's

    I have been working at Evolution Recruitment Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Genuine opportunities to progress with clear expectations from day one - you know exactly what is required to get promoted and this is transparent across the business.
    Excellent financial awards based on performance and regular incentives for top achievers - these are also available to newcomers within the business. I have qualified for several of these and have been with the business for less than 1 year.
    A really nice office environment - every success is celebrated and you are made to feel welcome and supported.

    Cons

    Work-life balance in any recruitment role can be tricky but Evolution are trying to address this through offering more flexibility in working hours. You get out what you put in and hard work definitely doesn't go unnoticed!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Nice people with a good culture.
    Break out room is good to wind down.
    Internal systems are good.

    Cons

    Extremely top heavy with directors / divisional managers. (10+ senior managers for only 60 sales heads)
    Very poor commission structure.
    Lucky dip on patch you receive.
    Location is poor.
    No flexibility of hours, remote, etc.
    Ignored by directors if not on target.

    Advice to Management

    Line your consultants pockets rather than your own.

    I worked at Evolution Recruitment Solutions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Graduate Training Programme is exceptional and puts you in excellent stead to succeed in this environment.
    Senior Managers/Directors are all very approachable and offer support/guidance whenever it's wanted.
    Regular incentives that live up to the expectations and not forgetting the all important Beer O' Clock on a Friday!

    Cons

    Not a negative towards the company but Recruitment is a difficult industry to be in if your heart isn't in what you do day in and day out. However, with the Employee Experience group constantly finding ways to improve the work/life balance, there's no denying that the company is all about looking after their employees to the best of their ability.
