    I have been working at ID Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Buzzy atmosphere, brill earning potential. I've got some good mentors whom I admire as they support me to succeed. Really love talking to and helping my nurse candidates, they do an amazing job, and I get great satisfaction knowing I'm making a difference to patients in my own way.

    Cons

    Can be long hours, but they fly past. But you've got to put in the time to earn the top dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to your teams, we appreciate it.

    I worked at ID Medical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Couldnt think of one. It was like being back at School.

    Cons

    They tell you at interview how fantastic the job is, how much commission you make.. They dont tell you, you need to call constantly all day every day and spend SO much time on 1 Candidate getting them fully compliant Ie (gathering documents) that the candidate doesnt even want to give you for you to get around £14!!! The other recruitment consultants steal your doctors from you and the client team who deal with the hospitals direct have an attitude problem and have there favourites. Worst place I hve EVER worked!

    Advice to Management

    STOP treating your staff like dirt, You should be supportive, Helping, Listening, Understanding.. Not Demanding, Interupting & down right ignorance! I worked in the Scotland office where one manager didnt have a clue how to be a manager and one girl thought she was the manager they used to argue infront of the team which btw was only 5 of us including those 2! There has been 5 people before me joined and left since June and YOU both are the reason why! The Directors really need to sit down and re think there choices of hiring either of you as senior staff!

    There aren't any benefits to working there

    I worked at ID Medical full-time

    Pros

    There is on-site parking that is free but it is either first-come first serve or reserved for the "important" people.

    Cons

    Bullying culture perpetuated by senior leadership. People were fired every single week, to the point that there is an email circulated every Monday outlining who has "left the business".
    If you are not a Consultant, you are deemed as unimportant by senior management and this is then fed down to the Consultants, who go on to treat support staff (e.g. admin etc.) awfully i.e. shouting in their faces.
    Slowly everything is being outsourced to India so the operation based in the UK will soon cease to exist.
    Right at the beginning of employment every employee is forced to sign a declaration confirming that they are willing to work over the allowed amount per week. There is no flexibility.
    It is a glorified call centre - this terminology is specifically not allowed.
    There are American-style huddles every morning n which macho-testosterone based chating, grunting and shouting is encouraged. There are more men than women that work there, and almost all of the senior roles are taken by men.
    The office appears to operate like a night club in that there is loud house music playing (that can be heard on calls) in order to "motivate" the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like human beings and stop taking advantage of school-leavers by paying them barely anything and forcing them to work ridiculous hours.
