      Micromanagement, misogyny, no progression

      Pros

      Consultants you work with are fun

      Cons

      Very laddish culture. Inappropriate comments were made towards female consultants on a daily basis, even by managers. Support from management was non-existent. Yet they are quick to micromanage. Often they would access your inbox to check your emails, keep track of calls by listening in, etc. Pay was shocking. Minimum wage + poor commission structure Extremely long hours with literally no work life balance

      A company that values and rewards hard work

      Apr 21, 2021 - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Reading, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A supportive and calloaborative environment, where you are surrounded by like minded individuals who want you to succeed as much as you want them to. A great range of benefits and incentives to entice you to aim high and do the best you can. They also care about the resources their consultants have and invest heavily on making sure you're as equipped as possible.

      Cons

      Not enough car parking spaces to fill the whole (Reading) office.. thats probably all I can think of, if I had to nitpick.

      Dinosaur agency, stuck in the 90s and can’t get out.

      Oct 7, 2020 - Consultant in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some people are decent, incentives are good and budgets to spend on BD

      Cons

      Where do I start? The most old school agency still operating in London. Everything you do, no matter what level you’re at is micro managed. This comes from the top down, starting with the directors. All the senior team do is constantly is lie, give false promises and micro manage. the directors are dinosaurs and have brought over the values of firms they worked at 20 years ago and still abide to them. For example, call times are constantly sent round, this is not a call center?? Every stat under the sun is micro managed and they constantly check everything and boardroom you if your numbers are low for the day. They are miles behind other tech agencies and have no clue how to catch up. It’s is like a school playground. You can stay till 9pm putting in a shift, but cant eat breakfast after 8.30 without getting humiliated on the sales floor or getting a passive aggressive email. Every senior/ experienced consultant looks to leave as they are massively underpaid and worked like a dog and know it’s better elsewhere. They have zero relationships with clients and candidates and it’s very much transactional and “on to the next one” as they can’t retain business. No consultants last more than 2 years or it is EXTREMELY rare if they do. It really is a revolving door, they CANT retain good talent as the company has ZERO values and ethics other than to make money.

      Great Company to work for

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      After working here for a year now I can honestly say it has been a fantastic experience from the outset especially through the current period of the pandemic and lock down. The company have been extremely transparent with open communication throughout this uncertain period and have offered great support and training opportunities. Even whilst I was on furlough I was made to still feel an important part of the Business which was really important in this tough time. The Senior Management team here are easy to chat to and always around to help and want to see you succeed!

      Cons

      No real cons of working here the role does require hard graft but the commission and earning potential is worth it along with great incentives - you get out what you put in.
