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

    Pros

    Since starting with Wilson in April I have enjoyed every minute! I feel that the although we are based offsite everyone is approachable and there are opportunities for development and progress internally. I have found that I can speak to anyone throughout the company and they are happy to help, especially in regards to my own development.

    Cons

    I have not yet come across anything that is negative about working for Wilson as an employer, however I am very career driven and would like to discuss a career development plan to ensure that I can get to where I want to because I know the opportunities are there with Wilson. I know that this is in process, but think it would have a benefit for me to ensure I have a target to aim for and know what I need to do to get there. Also I feel that we are not always informed of internal opportunities. If there was to be a role on another site I dont think that everyone is made aware incase we wanted to apply.

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

    Pros

    I have not yet been with the company for 6 months but my career at Wilson has started well. -Initial training/ induction was very thorough and I felt instantly part of the team -Have had frequent meetings with senior management since I have been onsite, ensuring I am happy with my role -Resources for sourcing are adequate to do my job -Working for a great client and onsite team are great to work with

    Cons

    -Not really a Wilson issue, but work onsite currently is a little slow -Current role is not challenging me, but I have spoken to my manager and they are happy to give me more responsibilty -As most of the clients are based a fair distance from me, I am slightly concerned about progression and a long term career at Wilson -Need ongoing training, for example havent had much/ any significant training on employment law

    I worked at WilsonHCG for more than a year

    Pros

    Well designed modern office space, friendly and helpful co-workers, free food every week.

    Cons

    Goals were relentlessly pushed regardless of any and all reasonable circumstances. The company preaches a quality over quantity philosophy but the exact opposite is true. I would end up submitting candidates I knew were not fit just to hit the goal. When asking for help with sourcing we would just be shown the same techniques over and over again, even if you'd already tried them many times. Management was not very supportive if you were not meeting your numbers. I understand the need for goals and targets as motivation to work hard, but when all of your resources have been exhausted and a goal still can't be met it is time to reevaluate the goal, not the person or their work ethic.

    I worked at WilsonHCG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Clean office space and fun events for staff.

    Cons

    Required to work in office due to my proximity to the area, however due to traffic spent 2+ hours per day in traffic with no flexibility to work from home even though a majority of the company worked remotely. Over promised and under delivered to clients, encouraged us to push people through the process even though they were not a good fit for the position just because we needed to give them employees. It was against my principles to focus on quantity over quality, and I knew this was not a good fit for me long term.

    Some people can work remotely

    Cons

    Please be aware the positive reviews are on glassdoor because the company makes you write them. I personally have put two positive reviews because my manager told me I had to do it. The pay is horrible and the upper management is ruining the culture of the company.

    Pros

    Culture of this company is awesome! Fun and youthful environment. The company allows for open communication all around the office. From the CEO to interns, everyone communicates efficiently.

    Cons

    Intern pay, starts off a bit low, but stick it out. If you're interested in going full time post internship and you have met your goals, you will get hired.
