      Pros

      Generally a good culture, fun environment to work with likeminded people earlier on in their careers.

      Cons

      Appalling leader who progressed into an executive position based on billings not leadership behaviours or values. Oppressive leadership style, verging on bullying. They have since exited the business, however were promoted into a far too senior position.

      Professionall people | Mature environment | Very "woke" | micro management

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Honest people - Fair base pay + comission - Generous expense account - Experienced recruiters (no 18 year old essex chaps, people know what they talk about)

      Cons

      - in the first week I was told that the friday work until noon is basically not working until noon. It is frowned upon when you do this - Very micro management (you need to copy your manager in the cc in every bd call you make) - Very KPI driven > you need to hit your "added managers, bd call, candidate call targets for the week". Even recruiters who do 4 deals a month + are asked to do this. - Very woke company, dont be surprised to get every week an email about why transgender kids should be encouraged, why the obama's are great, why there are 68 genders, Why BLM (the organiztion) is great etc. If you are conservative or centre-right wing, you ll have a hard time. It is a very inclusive company, but they do not really include conservative voices or views. (they even had obama documentarys running non stop during lunch for weeks)

      Best place I've ever worked

      May 27, 2022 - Senior Manager, External Communications in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The culture is a dream for anyone with ambition and passion for what they do. Doesn't matter what you do, if you're driven by care and a desire to add value to the company, you're given a voice, the tools and the support to run with it. From the CEO down across the SMT, these guys listen and are open to doing things differently and better. I wake up every day happy and bouncy about my work and the team, which is pretty much a dream come true. The offices are fab, the investment in development and internal events brilliant, and the flexibility with which you can work is a tick tick. I'm also lucky to have a boss who is simply wonderful. Everything on the employer brand side is true - it's not just comms on a website - it's what you'll find and is the DNA of the group.

      Cons

      It'll take a while to get to know people, but whenever I have reached out, I am met with an open door and slowly, am getting to the know the folks in the group. Not really a con, but just a challenge in any sizeable company.

      Pros

      Investigo is by far one of if not the best company I have been a part of throughout my career, every person in the office was more than welcoming from day 1 and there is constant support on both a professional and personal level from the senior management team. It is great to be a part of a company where you are not just another number in the headcount but are actually part of a great collective! The work/life balance at Investigo is second to none and provides the freedom you need to rest/enjoy life aswell as work hard!

      Cons

      At this point in my career with Investigo, it is hard to see a downside

      Good company to work for

      May 11, 2022 - Principal Consultant in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Commission/financial scheme has got to be one of/if not the best in the business. - Leadership team are very welcoming and make time to speak to you and get to know you - The work flexibility is excellent here. Well set up for hybrid working which I think is now a necessity for almost any company. Hours and how you work are almost what you make them. Ultimately in this business you do get out what you put in but equally it's nice to have the flexibility there and the addition of being able to work a half day Friday if you want to is great. - The main office is great and in a great location so when you are in the office it is a great atmosphere and place to work - The expectations are high but not unrealistic and it isn't a target driven business for the sake of hitting targets, ultimately it is about developing yourself, constantly improving and building on your business and doing things in the right way for the right reasons. - For a big company it has a number of very bespoke desks and markets which gives us the draw back of a bigger company with the specialism of a boutique agency.

      Cons

      - Commission scheme is excellent if you are doing well but it means you have to get up to speed to earn it. You can't sit back and coast if you want to be earning well. - Lots of initiatives. It is good to have the variety but maybe too many and can be a bombardment.
