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

    Pros

    - Friendly people - Earning potential is good

    Cons

    - Low basic salary - Poor training for people with no prior recruitment experience - The building is atrocious (toilets and lifts are always broken!) - Lack of communication between management and staff

    Advice to Management

    Its a bit of a selfish environment, everyone is working for themselves. Maybe you should consider implementing some kind of team work across teams and most are working similar roles. You really need to sort out your key accounts client. Lack of communication, lack of roles and the fixed KPI figure for each placement does not reflect the difficulty of the roles. Especially when you compare these to other accounts where...

    I have been working at Experis

    Pros

    - great commission scheme - nice & friendly people - consultants are given the autonomy to work in a way that suits them, no micro-management - set career structure so you can take control - not a huge gap between management and staff, everyone is very friendly and willing to offer help & support - good team spirit across different teams - good incentives for high performing staff

    Cons

    - systems are a bit slow but this has been addressed

    Advice to Management

    - over-caution can sometimes result in missed opportunities, giving consultants a little bit of investment in certain tools can help them achieve their full potential

    I have been working at Experis full-time

    Pros

    I joined Experis in November 2011, I had 3 years experience as a new business consultant with a moderate amount of success working for small generalist IT recruitment firm. The thing that attracted me to Experis was their commitment to helping consultants grow their own business through becoming a specialist in a particular area of IT (for me that was Information and IT Security). Through a mixture of hard work,...

    Cons

    The recruitment software we use isn't cutting edge, however I have been assured that this is being addressed before the end of 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep investing in passionate people who are driven and can be the leaders of the company in the future.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Experis offered me a fantastic environment to grow and develop. Whilst the office/business is sales oriented I felt that I was never set unrealistic or over the top targets. On the occasion I missed my targets I was not shouted at but encouraged and taught how to improve.

    Cons

    The systems can be a little slow at time, but this did not stop me from succeeding.

    Advice to Management

    keep going

    No cons - if you work hard then you are appreciated. We get all of the tools and support needed to be successful. You do have to motivate yourself more when you aren't micromanaged but I much prefer this. You get treated with more respect and feel like an adult.

    I have been working at Experis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice building, lots of place to stretch around, sales environment, we banged the desks every time someone rings a bill.

    Cons

    All boys club and every person to himself, people were rude- no one respected you. management was all over the place, we were forced to lie on the phone about the company and incentives. No real training, awful really. Commission was not realistic, sold dreams when first joining of 30-40k in first year. Realistically it would be good if you hit 20 after your 16k basic salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so overpowering to your employees and sort out the commission scheme.
