    I worked at Talent Search People full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing was the location in Barcelona

    Cons

    Management is so focused on presenting numbers to the CEO, they accept all the jobs without even considering the offered positions and the work market Salaries are different for everyone and they use your performance as an excuse for low salaries when they dont even provide good training and support A lot of pressure and every ¨celebration" is about money and how they can make more and more money Don't take time to actually provide training to new hires and after a week they expect them to have the same results as seniors consultants and keep pressuring people everyday

    Pros

    International team of colleagues who also chose to work for TSP since they wanted to live in Bcn.

    Cons

    Low quality of recruitment skillset among very junior people, not trained properly. Lowest ethical standards I have seen, hiring people when more projects and firing from one day to another when less projects. Connections help to get promoted, big egos and chasing money is what matters. Half of the staff are interns or close to interns.

    Pros

    Its a nice place( colleges wise), you will learn a lot in a fast environment. If you like challenges you will enjoy it a lot.

    Cons

    High stress level, they will ask you to do overtime (for free obviously) otherwise you are not a good worker. The commissions are almost unreachable and if in one quarter you don’t reach 100% of your objective you will have to make it up for the rest in the next quarter... if you get along with your boss you might stay for more than 3 months...high turn over of employment is really unstable.

    You get to learn a lot and handle situations you won't handle until way later in some other companies I had the luck of having amazing co-workers

    Cons

    You're thrown to danger right after your first month, objectives are complicated, you deal with a lot of workloads, management is terrible, the payment is way lower than the media in the sector

    - very low salary and imposible objective - CEO's just worry for the money - The executive manager only cares about the KPI's and objective. Not interested in relating to workers - Dispatch workers if they have a different opinion - The managers are authoritarian and you can not trust them - The routine is back to school

    I worked at Talent Search People full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - You can work with final clients (some of them are really good) - Co-workers - Working there open your doors to new opportunities

    Cons

    - I think that the big problem with that company is that it once was a great company to work because it had great people there which make a lot of money and create excelent teams. This people had a lot of pression to keep doing even more money and they left. Now the company is understanding the true nature of the bosses and sadly, it's not what it was anymore (that's why I left). - They ask you to make 8k/15k for month and they pay you 16,5k for year. The surrealistic part is that they act as if they were doing you a favour. - ANYONE with responsabilities there has ANY idea of what are they doing. They have had a lot of talented people in their teams and they just let them go without moving a finger for them. Sometimes this situations are surrealistic. This is the main problem of this company. - All the"good" things that they do are ideas from people that has left the company and they are not appying it correctly, which makes sense. - Working hours are bad: from 8:30 to 18:30. Their concept of flexible working hours is unreal. If you arrive at 8:35 you have to leave at 7:00. - They fire people who work hard while they tell you that they will never do that. - They want you to make A LOT of money without investing any single euro.
