    I worked at Your World Recruitment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary and they serve breakfasts once a month.

    Cons

    Competitive culture, toxic masculinity and misogyny and the kitchen area (where over 200 employees are forced to eat) is the size of a cupboard.

    Your World Recruitment Response

    Head of Marketing

    Thank you for your review. As part of a sales environment, there is always going to be a degree of competitiveness, which encourages consultants to strive to do better. Regarding your comments about toxic masculinity and misogyny we are somewhat concerned by this. We would really like to hear more about your experiences so that we can eradicate this from the business.

    Pros

    Marketing team are quality. The office itself is top notch. Good Christmas party. There are some good recruiters there too.

    Cons

    Having interviewed with two different people for a position in a sector I had never worked in before, I was placed onto a team where my first day induction consisted of being sat at a desk with a photocopy of a barely legible, handwritten brainstorm of how my sector operated. The person I was 'Buddied' up with was not available (not their fault) but as a result I was paired with the least senior member of the team who'd only been in the company for a few months at the time, and had clearly not been given the requisite training either (again, not their fault). The two people I had interviewed with, I discovered, did not work on my sector, and were billing managers who were in charge of my team for no other reason I would imagine than the fact they are big-billers and wanted the title. Staff turnover was incredible. The sales floor has around 130 people on it. I was there for around 6 months and by the time I had left there had been at least 30 ins and outs since my arrival. These ins and outs were not only for ridiculously high expectations not being met and the hire and fire culture that exists as a result, but people were sacked for getting into fights on payday socials, xenophobic abuse in one case, taking backhanders from umbrella companies etc. etc. The environment in the office was as toxic as anywhere I have worked. Schoolyard behaviour, Nepotism and preferential treatment was rife and newcomers were regularly made to feel unwelcome. If you aren't a top-biller, you are looked upon as if you may as well not be there so it's no surprise people leave so frequently.

    Thank you for your review. Your experience with us is very concerning as we have an internal Learning and Development Manager that would have taken you through all of your training before you were placed in your team. Regarding the environment of the office, our HR department would love to hear more from you on this as we welcome the opportunity to discuss and learn where we went wrong, and how you believe we can correct this.

    Pros

    Everyone is approachable no matter the role. I feel like the company has time for you if needed, and you are supported in a lot of ways. Your World is problem solver, so should you have an issue at work, talk about it and they will do their best to create a mutually beneficial arrangement. The atmosphere is great, and it's an easy environment to work in.

    Cons

    Nothing that comes to mind, there are some issues, such as the mens toilet being a bit small for the size of the office. But that's being persnickety
