    Pros

    Having worked ins sales for over 6 years with majority of them in recruitment I could not speak highly enough abut how Opus Talent Solutions have welcomed me into the business and teams.

    The recruitment industry doesn't get a great name at times but the incentives, benefits, commission structure here at Opus are one of the highest/best I've seen.

    Loads of companies will offer these incentives for staff but Opus actually make it achievable for consultants to go on them, monthly lunch clubs, quarterly trips to Barcelona, Menorca, Lisbon, day out at the races and these are just the January ones. The incentive are literally second to none.

    The atmosphere in the office is of course professional but fun at the same time. Despite the recruitment role itself being stressful and high pressured at times - i've not once felt uneasy or stressed to be at work as the atmosphere, support and culture is great.

    Free onsite gym, free fruit is also a nice touch!

    Cons

    there isn't any so N/A

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but recognise that regardless of what level you are within the business, inflexibility of hours and reliance on seniors and team leads to manage a team and mentor takes it toll...

    Pros

    There are none that come to mind

    Cons

    Company is highly unprofessional. People in office running around shoving pies in each others faces and a bunch of kids talking about how they haven't slept for 3 days.

    Advice to Management

    Sort your infrastructure out. Their is no strategy for sustainability in the business. Poor customer service and poor planning
