Saturated Industry

Consultant (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time for more than a year

Pros(1) Good learning opportunities. You can learn a lot about different industries, the nature of the industries, the way they run their business, the value chain, the competition landscape, the career prospective.
(2) Good income opportunity if you perform well in the company.
(3) One of the best companies in the headhunting industries in terms of treating employees. Although they are very particular about number, there are more humanity than here any other search firms in Singapore I've ever know.

Cons(1) The industry has now become saturated and more competitive. You can run 15-20 assignments at the same time but can only close 2-3. Too many things can happen, making it an unstable business, unlike years ago.
(2) The Chairman is weird and usually have time-wasting ideas, initiatives. For example, it is mandatory to come back on Saturday just to discuss about how to be passion at work. After all, these talking session is not helpful at all. Another example is a kind of training workshop, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The whole weekend can be gone without any solid take-home message. There is a habit of him, which is criticizing people (or telling them off) in a demotivating way, while thinking that his word is motivating and you have to be grateful upon receiving it.
(3) The company monitor their staff's punctuality with thumb print entry. If you are a few minutes late, you'll recieve emails. I always believe that the nature of this job is flexibilty, and there is no need to monitor employee's timing to that extend, given the fact that the knock-off time will always be after 7pm everyday.
(4) There will be a secret eye in the company to report everything to the big bosses. So, everything has to be handled with care.
(5) Open and non-cubical concept: Everything you do and say will be seen and heard. Some of the things can come back and stab you if chances arise.

Advice to Senior Management(1) Motivate the staff in a better way. Please do not expect your staff to have passion in your own business, until they have sufficient level of commitment and start to integrate their interest into your own.
(2) Be more understanding in terms of timing. Don't say that "there is no such a thing as work-life balance because work is life and life is work". People have their own priorities in different stage of life. It's better to start at 9:00 instead of 8:30 because you will never be able to knoc-off at 5:30 or even 6:00 due to the nature of the business. Last but not least, please minimize the time that people have to come back during weekends for weird activities.
(3) Stop saying things like: "If you are unable to do XYZ, then you are not normal.", "If you can't ABC, then you are nearer to God."

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

"Executive Search Firm"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at HRnet One Pt

ProsNice office, good money if you can perform in the company

ConsTotally agree with the review written by the one from Taiwan, it is a weird company. The turn over rate is over 300%, the key to why they still exist may lie in there is no training, the learning curve could not be steeper. Stretching is the word they use for employee motivation.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up with the world, build normal if not the best company culture and value, brain washing doesn't work that well these days any more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Weird Company

Regional Consultant (Former Employee)
Taipei (Taiwan)

I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time for more than a year

ProsGood only if you like to manage your own business like MLM or like cold-calling

ConsSuper weird company where we do morning exercise everyday, says a pledge....
Lots of training that is planned only on Saturdays or starts at 5pm
If you are 1 min late, there is a weekly report which highlights all the latecomers and sent out to management every week.
Career advancement is based on how many people you recruit, works like a mlm system
If you recruit 3 consultants you can become a team lead

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't tear down the employees, not everybody works well with reverse psychology

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
