    Brilliant training they really invest in you as a person and your personal development, although a big business it has a small and supportive culture, the offices are big bright and modern, there's opportunities for progression into management or senior and they feel like a stable business who are growing and continually improving to move forwards.

    Cons

    The bonus structure is difficult to understand but once it's explained its a really good scheme

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good teams
    Good commission structure
    Relaxed office at times
    Head of FM and Free Lance construction were very motivational during my time

    Cons

    Management was rude and swore at you when asking questions, fortunately, this person has now left the business. Get the right team within search and it would be an enjoyable experience.

    Advice to Management

    Always be mindful of new starters as they can often find internal problems from the outset and see what more senior management miss
