    I worked at Aston Carter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company to work when it was growing fast 2005 - 2010 Lots of flexibility and reward Very little red tape and reporting. You go to what ever meeting you wanted when ever you wanted and no one would ask any questions. Lots of money to be made in what was a booming banking market Management had been there for a long time Base pay is good, but you have to demand pay rise and show you can perform otherwise your struck in some standard payrise structure. I asked for a 100% increase on my base (i was smashing it) and got 50% base uptake. Good alternative to other super large recruitment businesses.

    Cons

    Red taped increased after the business sold to a larger recruitment business Lots of reporting Top performers could not just get away with what they wanted - maybe a good thing More of a structured larger management layer after the sell - some people may like that, but i prefer a flat structure. Banking market is performing bad now - less likely to make top dollar like in 2010. I made £200k in my last year as a hands on biller! Takes longer to become a team lead these days from what i can see. Senior management have made their money. Sold the company. There's no reason for them to change the world, drive the company to the next level, or take on even a reasonable amount of risk to push the business forward in what is a evolving competitive £4bn industry.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hold on to what you once was as a company that gave you a competitive advantage.
