    - real opportunity to progress
    - lots of investment in the development/training of employees

    Cons

    - there should be more support for under performers

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Pro-Recruitment Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Fantastic team
    - Plentiful and structured training
    - Structured guidance
    - A company with 'ears' for their employees, from suggestion boxes to monthly company meetings with anonymous feedback
    - Big billing potential
    - Niche markets
    - An ACTUAL culture. A lot of companies talk about great culture, when actually they just mean a trip to Barcelona for the weekend. Here, you actually are the culture.
    - Flexible working. Fine from home if needed, and flexi hours. As long as the job gets done, they're not fussy on hour patterns.

    Cons

    - Only I can think of is that it's a fairly sized team and a lot of people have been here for some time, so it can be gutting to see someone you know and like leave.

    Advice to Management

    Crack on, it's been a pleasure starting here.

    - Very accusatory environment, with no real acceptable answer for your management, and constant lying and threats.
