    Pros

    Working from home offers a great work life balance and you get rewarded for your efforts fairly.

    Don't always act on impulse

    I worked at networx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomous role, working mainly from home with 1 day a week at the head office in Otley. Regular staff incentives. Good system - well designed ATS.

    Cons

    High staff turnover. Strong cliques exist despite being a relatively small business. Very ego-centric workforce, especially amongst the longer-serving sales reps. Sales-focussed culture - high volume, cold-calling, sales role with less focus on service delivery. Hit & miss success rates for actual online recruitment service.

    Advice to Management

    Define the organisational culture & values to help recruit the right people more effectively. Be more transparent about the sales-culture and the high level of cold-calling. Encourage more coaching & mentoring by senior sales reps to break down cliques within the business.

    Yes working from home in a sales environment is not for everyone. It can be tough, when you need to bounce off someone, sometimes speaking on the phone is not enough.

    I have been working at networx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great working atmosphere, plenty of laughs but equally a brilliant work ethic from all. I personally feel like a valued and respected member of the team.

    Management are approachable and are very aware that the work life balance is important to everyone, they do their very best to accommodate individual situations.

    Cons

    Communication between departments needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Communication should be addressed but apart from that, keep on keeping on!!!.

    I have been working at networx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for a number of years and i really love working for them.

    My job is hard work and i am always busy but i enjoy it. They have really great products and services and one of the things i enjoy most is delivering real benefit to the clients that i work with. The technology we provide is one of the best out there in terms of candidate experience and flexibility and the customer support we provide is excellent. When it come to our recruitment and candidate attraction services we genuinely can provide real cost and efficiency improvements to our clients and i have many very happy customers. I love the fact that we constantly evolve our service to take account of the latest trends.

    The directors and management in the business are passionate about their company and treat their staff with respect. The team i work with are experienced and work really well together to provide the best service possible.

    This is one sales role where i truly believe in what i am selling and know that we give the clients exactly what we say!

    Cons

    As mentioned the work load can be high and clients can be demanding but this is not really the fault of the company and is partly because we go out of our way to provide the best service possible.

    Working from home can be tough on occasions and you need to be self motivated but once you are used to it i find i am more productive working from home and have the benefits not having to travel to and office everyday before and after meetings etc..

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work growing the company and innovating recruitment!
