    I have been working at Resource Solutions Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Company has over 300 staff and there are only 6 reviews currently on Glassdoor. This is a testament to the low churn of the Business and the generally positive terms on which people leave the Business. Churn here is exceptionally low for a recruitment Business. The Company is fast growing and has won multiple awards to that effect. This is not a KPI / Target driven Business, instead the focus is on long term...

    Cons

    The trade off for a good work life balance / no targets and a friendly environment is a relatively low basic by contrast to other Businesses. This is reflective of the fact that there is less of a tiered structure. There are relatively few people earning six figure salaries and instead a larger number of people on good wages working in a role they enjoy. I see this as a positive as it's a step away from the pyramid schemes...

    I have been working at Resource Solutions Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is very much a community feel to working with RSG which isn't often found in the workplace, especially within recruitment agency world. You're made welcome from Day1 by everyone and each person is happy to help with any questions you have whether you're new or have been there a good while.

    Cons

    Not relevant as haven't come across any yet!

    I worked at Resource Solutions Group part-time

    Pros

    None......An RPO who is a glorified agency

    Cons

    Where do I start.... Their recruitment policy is warped to say the least and you are never given back proper feedback but everything is a smoke screen if your face doesn't fit. Currently clinging on to an Account in Edinburgh where the feedback is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your internal recruitment as you have not go the right person who is interested in a diverse workforce.

    Pros

    Fast growing, with lots of opportunity for energised individuals wanting to develop their profession. You will genuinely get out what you put in. Great people and team culture with supportive leadership.

    Cons

    Its a highly accountable industry, that will reward the right attitude but expose the wrong.

      I worked at Resource Solutions Group full-time

      Pros

      Good team atmosphere (albeit cliquey) Good, approachable mid-management

      Cons

      Senior management are seriously incompetent (almost no experience of working in different companies / industries at board level) Boy club at the top. Management create barriers to stop progression and perceived threats to their jobs. 'Old school' recruitment attitudes, sexism is rife throughout

      Advice to Management

      Hire a new CEO Don't be afraid of change Look for senior managers with some breadth of company / industry experience (broader perspectives breed innovation)

      Pros

      A stable company that, compared with most recruitment businesses give new employees more time to develop.

      Cons

      Very easy to hit a ceiling. No change in Senior Management team since the business started. Not open to new ideas and typically you 'do well' if you do as you're told.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to people that challenge you and look outside of the football or Rugby pitch for talent,
