    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues in all offices, training, recognition, support, management. All the above I find good / on par with other agencies I have worked for over the years. No uniform, quite relaxed when it comes to work wear. Dress down Fridays and monthly/quarterly meetings where ALL staff are involved and recognised. Salary is good.

    Cons

    Benefits, not that great. Holidays, Healthcare etc are poor compared to others I have worked for and interviewed for.
