    I have been working at KennedyPearce Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong team with lots of experience for support to develop and progress. Lots of materials and resources to do the role effectively. Socially satisfying and well balanced.

    Cons

    I can't say there are many downsides to KennedyPearce as the vast majority are picked up and resolved quickly

    I worked at KennedyPearce Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to go home early You are left alone Fruit bowl Commission monthly

    Cons

    No structure, no interaction from the top down really. Not somewhere a junior consultant could survive. No real training. No support. Bill or leave type environment. Very old school. No care for candidates. Owners just set on selling but it’s no where near that point. ADs are basically Managers and Managers are senior consultants. Culture is pretty much non-existent with the exception of about 5 people that are essentially stuck there. If you want to leave early, drink every day and be left alone completely - good place, otherwise, I’d stay well clear. No benefits. Thresholds are sky high, they say they have top of the market commission but with a threshold of that marker, it’s really irrelevant.

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

    Pros

    I've been at KennedyPearce for nearly 2 months now and have settled in very well, the team are all welcoming and make an effort for you to feel apart of the team. The office and management is laid out very well so everyone can share ideas and look to someone with experience to answer any questions you might have. There is a very "work hard, play hard" dynamic to the team and I can already see how personal and professionally rewarding being apart of the KennedyPearce team can be and i look forward to the future here.

    Cons

    The office masseuse only comes once a week!

    Pros

    The people at KPC make it a great place to work. There is always a great vibe in the office, people are always keen to help each other out and take a lot of pride in their work. Monday massage's and friday drinks are real perks too.

    Cons

    8am everyday! (Hardly a con though)

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

    Pros

    - Engaging owners who still have a passion and drive for recruitment - Great culture with a collegiate and transparent approach resulting in a competitive but non-back stabbing environment - Good work life balance with favorable hours on a Friday - Quality over quantity mentality, focused on the outputs and results. KPC are KPIs for KPIs sake - Strong and diverse client and candidate network - A good mix of experienced consultants and new - Great office location in the heart of the city - Good rewards for top and consistent performers

    Cons

    - As with most recruitment business, it is a competitive market and this brings it own challenges but nothing specific to KPC

    Pros

    KennedyPearce Consulting has the best culture I have ever worked in! Personality matters here, and to work within an environment where everyone is there to help you makes work not seem like work. Friendly, professional and fantastic.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours are needed when you have a lot of work on, but the day's fly by and being busy is a good thing!

    Pros

    Decent people. Independently run.

    Cons

    No management, everyone works totally independently. No cross-selling or support from other teams. They promote themselves as a social culture but social events are once in a blue moon & are always evenings which don't suit everyone so many miss out. Managers get consultants to resource for their roles rather than support them in building a client base.
