    I worked at Goodman Masson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people Good earning potential Management were friendly and approachable Success was recognised Good company culture Great flexible working

    Cons

    Handled residencies and mass firing during the Covid pandemic terribly. They let go of some seriously lovely, loyal and talented consultants without offering anything more than their standard notice period. I heard from multiple consultants that even after the government announced companies could re-hire and put onto furlough, they decided not to. For a business that promotes looking after their employees, they really did hang a lot of people out to dry. During this period of time they then continued to hire new consultants, which is mind-blowing in all honesty.
