    Pros

    Extremely supportive environment; questions are welcomed and encouraged. Young, vibrant office atmosphere that knows how to work hard and have fun. Managers treat you as peers, and everyone is valued. Excellent opportunities to move forward within the company, and training is top-notch.

    Cons

    Haven't come across any thus far! But if you are not fully committed to working hard day in and day out, this company may not be for you.

    Pros

    I am only a year out of college and already am more successful than the majority of my former classmates and my friends who graduated years ago (both in terms of earnings and career growth). This is a truly unique opportunity to join a growing company, and allows you to earn UNLIMITED commission and you can literally be a manager after being with the company for two years or even less. I am never bored and I love the challenging work environment. I also feel a really close connection and tight-knit bond with my team, who are super supportive and encouraging on days when the job could be tough. The wins in this position are amazing, and when I work hard enough, I can end the month with a 20K pay check or even more. I am really passionate about this company and the management, and they've shown me over the past year that they truly care about their employees and their happiness. Not to mention, there are amazing perks to this job -- 22 days PTO per year (which roll over the next year if you don't use them), trips to miami, vegas, fun team nights out, incredible meals, etc. I feel so grateful for this opportunity and know that I will be with the company for years and years to come.

    Cons

    This job is a great fit for me, but definitely not for everyone. You need to be super motivated, eager to learn, resilient, and driven. If you are looking for a super relaxed, work from home, 'come in late' or 'leave early' type of place, this is not the best job for you.

    Pros

    Great training, friendly atmosphere, growth opportunity

    Training - The training will start from day 1 and never stop. From weekly trainings, to refreshers, to the most senior people in the company conducting trainings, you are always learning something new. Whenever I have questions I know I can ask the director or even the CEO a question as easily as I could somebody 1 day into the business....that's something you don't find often.

    Friendly Atmosphere - The energy is high, and the people are positive. If you have a question or need advice, not only are you welcome, but you're encouraged to approach your colleagues. Anybody in the company, myself included will drop what we're doing to help...not because we're forced to, but because we all want everybody to do well and grow.

    Growth Opportunity - There are current employees who I've already see hit two promotions in their first year in the company! The Most senior people at Sthree all started as trainees; that just puts in perspective how far this company will let you grow...they'll never try to limit you. Considering the amount of growth happening across the Americas (Info that we all learned at a comped weekend in Vegas) there are so many openings being created for current and future employees - I feel very lucky to be where I am right now.

    Cons

    Sales is a roller-coaster of emotions type of job, there are somethings that can really ruin your day, if you can't move on from it you may have a tough time in this job. Also, if you want to come in and wait for the clock to hit 5pm you won't do as well as somebody putting in the effort, staying late and making big money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! It's no secret why we keep winning "best company to work for" awards

    A truly meritocratic organisation with incredible career opportunities, but be willing to work hard for it!

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

    Pros

    Phenomenal training, support and infrastructure, great career opportunities, work hard/play hard attitude and some great incentives. Definitely a meriotocracy and if you're willing to learn, look at the long term opportunity not just the short term and have a positive attitude you'll do well. Also the fact that the majority of Senior level have worked from the bottom up shows how strong the opportunity is and they've walked in everyones shoes so know how to help.

    Cons

    This industry is tough and not for the feint hearted. Shorter term you won't earn as much as some companies will tell you but longer term you absolutely can and you have to be willing to make mistakes as long as you learn from them. You have to be resilient though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share consistent messages on where the business is going & what the goals are regularly - that way the working population have greater clarity on what the business as a whole has planned and understand how they can contribute

    I worked at SThree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic training delivered in multiple formats - not just in the initial training phase - but throughout your career from what i could see.
    Really growing in the US and they promote from within so lots of opportunities to grow your career.
    Base + uncapped commission so you can drive your own earning potential.
    Great bunch of people to work with - really fun.

    Cons

    Very sales driven culture - great if you like / want this, but just wasn't for me.

    Pros

    Training, incentives, likeminded people, everyone is motivated, work ethic, work trips, unleashing your potential. Great company all round for a graduate. International mobility is encouraged. Great for a management career

    Cons

    Not the best pay, also management bonuses are low. Also its a PLC so you wont get rich as they have already had their IPO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the best staff before their heads get turned and they join a competitor

    Pros

    Great support across all levels, Directors are happy to help with issues and give training on a regular basis. As with all sales environments, there are targets but they are achievable with an organised work load. Have been here for less than 6 months and already qualified for three incentives, without prior experience in my team.

    Cons

    None really - can be noisy but what do you expect from a sales floor?

    Pros

    The training is second to none here. Sthree values it's staff and back us 100%. They invest so much in getting the best out of you. The best thing is that it is organically grown so the career progression is within everyone's reach.
    The management support system is outstanding and they are within arms reach to help...... You don't have that in most global organisations!!
    I would recommend working here to anybody looking to get into a fun but challenging role where you are sales driven and looking for a long term career.

    Cons

    It's a tough gig if you think recruitment is more like hr.
    You need to be patient, hard working, sales orientated, organised and like a challenge.
    It's not for everyone but the rewards are outstanding and the feeling you get when making a deal is like nothing you would get in any other job!
