    Pros

    I used to work at Ambition and am now a service provider to the firm. Always a pleasure to deal with:

    - Transparent commission scheme
    - Developed business (more than 10 years in Hong Kong)
    - Systems are very good and fluid
    - No egos, not political, people get on with it and are there to make money
    - Offices are nice
    - People are ethical. Ambition is not a 'boiler room' recruitment company, like so many others
    - Leadership is strong
    - You will be rewarded with loyalty and hard work by being promoted. It isn't about who is friends with the MD

    Cons

    - Teams could be incentivised to cross sell a bit more so that there will be financial benefits to picking up business for other teams and taking them on client meetings
    - Perhaps a candidate / client split system could be considered

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and remember what makes Ambition great.
