    Current Employee - Senior Recruitment Consultant in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Senior Recruitment Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at SThree full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The offer you significant support and training in your first year
    It's a plc, and very successful - you will feel part of a huge corporate, that offers security and career growth
    Due to their size, they offer you significant resources - advertising budget, huge database, advanced CRM software
    Good earning potential, especially for graduates

    Cons

    For such a successful firm, the senior management are not good role models
    Very micro-managed sales processes, very KPI driven
    One size fits all approach (certainly in my office)
    Hyper competitive - one on one, teams, offices, brands. Very little team work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more creative where possible and set targets that are based on achievability.
