    I have been working at Pareto Law full-time

    Pros

    I cannot begin to praise Pareto enough for all their hardwork and commitment to placing me in a role that is not only suitable for me, but also is tailored to my requirements in a job.

    Starting from the recruitment consultant I worked with, who talked me through everything I needed to know about the assessment day, and kept in constant communication with me throughout, ensuring I was well prepared. He even stayed in touch with me after I was placed.

    During the assessment day, I was made to feel at ease. Even though it was competitive, everyone was still professional and friendly. The day was structured well, and it was good to see that there were companies who were actively looking to hire candidates straight from the assessment day - no pressure!

    Overall, my experience was fantastic and the outcome was positive for me, as I am now placed in a great role after a mere 2 weeks since being successful at Pareto's assessment day.

    I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for a career in sales. In fact, I did! And the person I referred has also gotten placed in a role - even before I was! Talk about a recruitment company that actually cares for its candidates and knows what they're doing, talk about Pareto

    Cons

    The only con I can think of (and this is only because I didn't want to be biased) is that the day was quite long and it involved some waiting, but it is worth it if you're well prepared. The day is ran as it is so that they can accommodate for as many candidates as possible, while giving everyone an equal amount of attention.

    My biggest advice is to bring food, and eat well before going for assessment day (but they let you know anyway)

    Advice to Management

    None! Keep doing what you're doing. It is clear that you are constantly improving your processes. Keep it up

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunity to earn a lot of money, great atmosphere in the office, progression is very clear and achievable.

    The hours can be long but this is often rewarded on placement of a candidate through commission.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The telephone interview/assessment day process is really straight forward, just bring bags of personality and motivation and they will do the rest.

    Everyone makes you feel really welcome and comfortable, lots of opportunities available going forward

    Cons

    I personally thought that some of the positions they advertised that I was initially attracted to were not actually the ones they had to offer and as such the ones I went to interview for didn't overly excite me

    Advice to Management

    Should have an assigned contact who specifically deals with you instead of getting lots of phone calls from everybody from different parts of the company, at times felt there was a bit too much pressure from too many people.

    I worked at Pareto Law full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good way to search for jobs. Plenty of oppertunities to find a job.

    Cons

    Long day, false adverrisment, not intrested in people, systematic approuch to employment.

    Advice to Management

    "Scoring" people on their ability in certain areas when doing assessment days is a good idea as it gives you a ruff idea of a person. However, there are so many of these assessment days that people know whats coming and how certain assessments are scored so they essentially create a false version of themselves to score points. Focus on the person, what they can do and have a better 1-1 conversation would allow a more natural process. I recently attended an assessment day and was they for 8 hours with a 45 minute break and had a 3 minute 1-1 conversation.

    I worked at Pareto Law full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely one of the best places to work.

    I spent 9 years at Pareto going from when there was just under 30 of us up to the 200's it is today. Not everything was right all of the time but companies learn and change and that is what Pareto certainly did. The business is very sales focused so it is fast paced and very target driven. That is what all successful businesses are built on. So if you succeed then you know you are part of something big.

    Pay was very good and the incentives were amazing from paid for holidays to prize draws for hampers

    Loved my time at Pareto if you are starting out in your career then seriously consider it.

    Cons

    With any successful culture you get what you put in so expect to work and work hard

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to make sales a profession

    Pros

    Pareto Law offers a really friendly environment to work in. There are great reward incentives including quarterly vouchers and holidays twice a year for top performers. Essentially, if you work hard you reap the financial reward.

    Cons

    You do work long hours but the financial reward makes up for it!

    Pros

    - Gives you the opportunity to step into some big companies.
    - Easy to use online payroll system.
    -

    Cons

    - Although they are you official employer, you don't ever hear from them apart from automatically generated emails. it gives you the feeling that they're not that bothered about you, only the commission they're on.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be a good idea for account managers to have some interaction with their employees seconded to other companies to get feedback and offer guidance. After all, they are your employees.

    I have been working at Pareto Law full-time

    Pros

    The best consulting/recruitment company I have ever worked with. They actually care about finding you a great job where you can really grow as a business professional. The Assessment day was nothing like I had ever experienced. It was fun and very different to what I am used to. My consultant was extremely helpful in preparing me for it. I ended up passing the Assessment day and am now 7 weeks into a job I love.

    Cons

    I have yet to find any cons. If you have that work hard-play hard mentality and are money driven, you will succeed in sales.
