    I'd rate zero stars if I could - I'm another former employee relieved to have left a toxic work environment

    I worked at Clarius full-time


    Before 2014 the company was a great place to work because the Executive team were supportive of staff and had a heavy focus on staff. Being a recruitment company, they knew the importance of happy, healthy staff members.


    Post mid-2014:

    1. New Executive management inc the Board, CEO, CFO - all without recruitment experience and clearly don't understand the market

    2. Staff morale is non-existent due to heavy cut backs. Staff have been made redundant, gotten dismissed/fired or resigned. Key staff members such as top sales people have pretty much left

    3. Lack of funds to spend on decent salaries, benefits, bonuses, training, team building events

    4. Certain department which should remain mutual between staff and employer seem to side heavily with employer so staff are reluctant to go to them for assistance/help as they think it will be used against them when it's 'firing time'

    5. Toxic work politics where members in the same department despise working with each other and certain departments working against each other and not with each other (yes, this is for the same company they get paid by). This is due to top management not communicating to department managers

    Overall, this is not a company to go work for unless you can go without certain things such as:

    * benefits or bonuses, paid-training - due to lack of funds,

    * recognition for your work - due to poor management,

    * support with things like needing to attend to family matters, reassurance of job safety - due to poor management,

    * communication with even the smallest things such as a new starter in your team, a team member resigning from your team - due to poor management.

    But if you can handle a work environment which:

    * is political, where other staff members talk behind your back,

    * may have a manager looking after themselves as number 1 only,

    * doesn't communicate

    * seems to rate employee happiness at the bottom of the list

    then this place may be ideal for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company is even still afloat right now, I would advise management to:

    * Pull their heads out from wherever they are stuck, lower their egos because the company is not a Fortune 500 and they shouldn't have anything to be pompous about.

    * Look after your shareholders that have invested their hard earned money into the business and stop what seems like a running of the business into the ground by not knowing what one department is doing to the next.

    * Find a balance between staff and managing funds especially when your business is about recruitment, therefore people. If you cannot demonstrate to clients that you cannot look after your own people, why would they pay you to look after their company and help them find their people?
