    Pros

    Great Training Team for those new to recruitment
    Very Sociable Office
    Brand new office
    In house Gym
    Fruit

    Rigid Hours
    Commission structure encourages elitist behaviours-rewards high billing months and not consistency

    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...

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    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

    Pros

    There is some good training

    Cons

    - Managers bully staff, make people feel small
    - They hire in mass, typically fire more than half before the first week is up
    - So KPI driven and will be shamed in front of everyone
    - Would not recommend people to work here

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    Pros

    Opus has always been really fast growing and ambitious and this has shown in the brilliant results. It has always felt like you are part of something special, and that start-up entrepreneurial culture really shows.

    What's been really great recently, is that they have made an effort to make sure that all the positive bits of the culture are filtering down more. I don't think Opus ever had anything but good intentions - but when you are growing so fast and running so hard it's hard to take everyone along with you.

    I think the Leaders of the business have really started thinking about making sure everyone is brought on the journey. The culture, training, experience, comms, policies everything have improved so much. And people now know how much they are valued.

    I've worked at Opus a while, and whilst I always felt that everyone was valued - I could understand why sometimes people didn't realise it - it's hard to go from a small start up to a leading global company. But now I think things are better than ever.

    Cons

    There is always cons to having to work.... :-) and there will always be one off gripes. But the good thing is that it's an environment where you can share your ideas.

    I've worked at a few companies, and I can honestly say with perspective, that it's really good and fair here.

    Advice to Management

    I am really enjoying the new policy changes - the mental health and wellness initiatives have been great, as well as the investment in tech events

    Pros

    Convenient location in Bristol

    Cons

    Poor transparency with potential hires. They tell you one thing then change their mind at the last minute. They have no issue compromising your employment circumstances and don’t have the decency to provide timely explanation.

    The potential and actual earnings are very good and certainly achievable.
    The incentives are stretching but realistic and obtainable.
    You get what you put in.
    Support from management, always have time for questions.
    Competitive environment
    Clear progression

    Long hours
    Competitive environment (If that isn't for you can be bad)
    Pressure to do well and do deals

    Advice to Management

    Keep getting the best out of everyone, realise that some people are happy earning less and doing less but will still achieve excellent profitability for the business
