    I have been working at Brook Street as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    All the paper work was thoroughly informative on the company that the agency sent me to, with clear and concise maps, and background on the job required. pay was slightly above the national average, and the staff were friendly and not at all demeaning.

    Cons

    The only downside was that I was not a direct employee of the company that I was being sent to, so I was fraught with worries about being dropped in favour of other agency workers.

    I worked at Brook Street full-time

    Pros

    -Great atmosphere all around, great people to work with and a very positive and welcoming environment.
    -You get trained for a week, and then continually have training sessions to help you grow and understand the market and the position a bit more.
    -Nationwide competitions that have good £ rewards.
    -Constant communication with colleagues from other branches.
    -Great recognition from everyone for your achievements.
    -Management is open to hearing suggestions.
    -You can run your own desk without being micro-managed, and are welcome to explore new ways of doing things.

    Cons

    -Not evolving with the ever changing market. Stuck in the dark ages of recruitment. Up to the end of 2011, still didn't even know about the existence of LinkedIn, or any other tool apart from Monster and TotalJobs.
    -You can move around in the company, but cannot easily move up.
    -Not specialised recruitment. You are welcomed to target any clients, in any industries for any positions you want or can. It doesn't give you a great base of knowledge to stand on, and you have to make things up as you go along.
    -They make you go to training to other cities for one day every month, but sometimes they send you to the wrong training sessions (sessions you've already had), and it becomes a massive waste of your time.
