    I have been working at Pareto Law full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pareto is an internationally-recognised brand name so with Pareto on your CV you can go anywhere. The culture is extremely supportive and the progression opportunities are clear and achievable. If you're prepared to work hard to get where you want to be then there is no better place to be than with Pareto.

    Cons

    Occasionally you may have long working-hours however management strongly encourage a work-life balance. Extra hours are definitely self-led as everyone is very driven.

    I worked at Pareto Law full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A fast paced, exciting environment to work at. Masses of formal sales training, as well as almost daily coaching. Easy to learn from colleagues. Exciting insight into how other companies also sell when out on client meetings and assessment days. Great to see best practice being taught, and then implemented.

    Cons

    It's very fast paced and high pressure, which can be mentally challenging. Long hours. Long drives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going! Continue to motivate the staff, listen to them. The incentives for the sales people are second to none so keep them coming.

  3. "Fantastic Service, would highly recommend!"

    Pros

    - Offering of 128 hours of in-depth ongoing training after placement in job role.

    - Rapid response to enquiries, very engaging and positive

    - Strong selection process to ensure candidates are placed in appropriate job roles.

    - Intent listening and very hard working agents who find well catered job roles to suit individual requirements and aspirations.

    - Jack Smith was my personal agent. Fantastic service, very professional and incredibly friendly chap. He was near enough the main reason I was interested in the job because I trusted his opinion and expertise entirely. He did not give the impression that he had any target based agenda as you often get with other job agencies and agents.

    Cons

    - My only con would be that I was invited to job roles in an industry that I had not previously expressed a particular interest in (I was also invited to roles that I had expressed interest in too). But upon investigating the role further it actually turned out to be a fantastic opportunity. The clients that Pareto work with are brilliant SME's that they must clearly be selective about.

    Honestly this is by far the best job agency that I have found employment with. I can not recommend these guys enough!

    Advice to Management

    - Jack Smith was fantastic! Give him a bonus or promotion.. or both! he adds so much value to your company!

    I worked at Pareto Law full-time

    Pros

    The trainers in general are very good.

    Cons

    Very low salaries that people complain about constantly. Environment feels like school and is incredibly unprofessional. People in the office constantly use crude language and discuss inappropriate topics. Generally unskilled employees with massive egos.

    Advice to Management

    The pay structure is not "better than anywhere else". Clearly you have never worked anywhere else..........

    I worked at Pareto Law full-time

    Pros

    You get access to training
    Some of the people are genuine

    Cons

    Most people are fake, backstabbing and brown nosers
    Sexist, racist, homophobic attitudes all standard and encouraged
    Cult-like culture where if you don't behave like the rest of the salespeople you won't last long
    Encouraged to comment on women's attractiveness and their love lives
    Male staff have very strict formal dress code, women can wear anything as long as they look easy.
    No action taken about men in the company who behave very inappropriately. (I.e groping, referring to female colleagues as slags, unsolicited rude pics)
    GMs have to lie to candidates
    Forced overtime

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people who could get you sued for sexual harassment and train your staff in how to behave in the 21st century. Change your attitude to HR. Stop the girls in the office feeling they have to dress like porno secretaries to be accepted. It's embarassing when clients and delegates get shown round the sales floor if nothing else. Makes the company look cheap.
