    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Established business and lot's of opportunities for development and progression. Great People internally and great clients

    Cons

    As any professional recruitment business of large scale, there were lot's of distinct practice areas which didn't maxixmise opportunities. I was advised that the internal network was the most important factor for success, but felt that everyone was to busy chasing there own targets. This seems to have been addressed since my time at the Company.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, excellent flexible working practices, great IT support, global opportunities, meritocracy

    Cons
