    Pros

    Good place to learn about executive search and build skillsets as a recruiter. Highly demanding and work in pressure, toughen you up. Interaction with high calibre candidates and clients.

    Cons

    Really sick place, company culture all about money and build values on monetary benefits. Brain wash you by making you read books on how to be great in sales, the secret then make you take tests on them. Fine you for being late even though you have to work long hours. Stretch you and resources are non existent, you have to do a-z by yourself. You have NO life outside work, work life balance non existent and I hated weekend trainings, quarterly SP, real waste of time and life. Leaders there has NO corporate experience whatsoever, family business way of management by 1 man- Peter sim who is treated like god.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in real professional managers and start treating your only resource - people decently.

    Pros

    There are good training programs for some of the starters.Basically, it is an individual consulting job. Junior consultants are able to get an insight of the whole picture of executive search by practicing in each aspect; While hard working seniors are able to benefit from abundant incentives. Besides, there are systematic recruiting procedures based on reliable and functional data system, although it could also put into lots of additional data accessing work at first.

    Cons

    humble basic salary plus fancy incentive package which is extremely hard to get; changes in management all the time;very high employee turnover rate;very few team works;stupid staff training which is often not necessary to the job and arranged after working time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make a more reasonable benefit structure and more autonomy instead of a push management and nonsense staff training

    I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good reward system if you do well. Great gifts for performers during quarterly review. Good guidance and mentor if u have a understanding leader. There are a group of hard liners or top performers who will do anything to please the Chairman and his gangs (the BL & GBL) who can't work elsewhere due to limited knowledge in operational and functional except for in headhunting lines.

    Cons

    Like HRnetOne, there is no sustainability in the company. Almost all the master headhunters who received lucrative awards had left the company. Chairman is weird and often come out with nonsense ideas. The GBL or country managers generally have to obey to his military instruction. Don't talk about passion, all he wants is to be richer and get his people to generate the wealth for him. A payroll cost which links to your basic is tied back to your incentive, i.e., your incentive will only be pay upon if you hit 3 times of your payroll cost and after the deduction of your payroll cost, tax, CPF of employer's portion, etc. everything here is about results, don't talk or bother about the industry outlook. There are more like MLM rather than a good corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The chairman should step back and retire as an independent non-executive director. Hand over the company to a more professional team of leaders. Don't treat your employees like a cash cow and belittle or even humiliate your staff in front of others. The chairman should really learn to be a good leader, your words are not motivating or encouraging at all. Reflect on those who have left and what have you done wrong. You talk about good culture and good governance but you suffer from high attrition rate. You talk about humility and

    Pros

    Leaders like to coach young consultants. Personally learned a lot and became a professional retained executive search consultant from this company. Fast tempo, direct communication style, clear industry and function focus which is good for consultants to build their own expertise.

    Cons

    Typical Singaporean style company with actually zero company culture. The only 'culture' is money. Company policy does not allow employees to do paperwork (writing reports etc.) during the 8 hours day time but can only do after work which is actually illegal. Long working time without paymetn for OT. Huge number pressure. Turnover rate high. If you cannot get good sales number within 6 months, the bosses will say bye bye to you. Local Chinese are hard to be promoted to leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For those Singaporean and Hong Kong leaders - be less mean and more caring with employees.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    (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."

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Totally 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Super 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

    Don't tear down the employees, not everybody works well with reverse psychology
