I have been working at Montash full-time (less than an year)Pros
There is a giant graphic on the kitchen wall which highlights all the different career paths you can take within Montash. This is so everyone knows where they can be, what they need to achieve and how they can get there. The company is a meritocracy and is very honest. I was told in my interview that regardless of my background or who I was, as long as I worked hard, I would be put in charge of people. The offices are very stylish and scream technology, innovation and Montash. This is all thanks to the marketing team at Montash.
They manage every detail. From the design of internal birthday cards and inspiring graphics on the toilet mirrors to LinkedIn profiles and Montash's website, everything is professional and well devised.
At Montash they look after their staff. There is fresh fruit in the kitchen, free breakfast on a Friday, top-quality coffee and expensive 'Borg and Overstrom' filtered water-coolers dotted around the office. The offices are always very clean and the desks are spacious. Success is widely rewarded here in both terms of commission and recognition. Failure is rewarded with classroom, on-the-job training and attention from the supportive management here. The management want you to succeed as much as you want to. Nobody here wants to see anybody else fail. Montash is a friendly, energetic, fun and supportive team of talented professionals. The management have a good balance of authority, 'strictness', humor and forgiveness.
Montash doesn't end at 5:30pm on a Friday. Everyone stays in the office to enjoy a cold beer from the fridge, good music, some table-tennis and a catch-up before continuing the Friday-feeling in various restaurants, bars and other past-times around London.
Their offices are about a 60 second walk from Old Street tube station. The offices have great connections to the rest of the city via the Northern line, Central and Met line.
The MD at Montash is a down-to-earth and all-around nice guy. He never hesitates to speak to you, whether he passes you by in the Kitchen or you make eye-contact from across the room. He sit's among everyone on the sales-floor too, giving out advice, motivating staff and just generally taking an interest in you personally.
My favorite pro for working at Montash is the table-tennis at lunch. There is a full-sized, professional table-tennis table in the middle of the sales-floor; they don't just work professionally, they play professionally too. It helps new staff to get involved and socialize, as well as breeding a competitive yet fun environment. I myself got to know most of the people here, by playing table-tennis with them.Cons
As per any recruitment role, it is unlike any other office job, the hours are long and there is only an hour break in the day.
The job is also very stressful, you need to be resilient and thick-skinned. You will hear the word 'no' and get rejected a hundred odd times, before you succeed.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep up the good work. I can already see the company progressing and having an exceptional service with candidates and clients, they are setting a high industry standard. The company is already rapidly expanding, so my advice would be to ensure that the support and recognition given to staff continues with the ongoing growth of the company.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Interview Details
The lady interviewing me seemed pre-occupied and left the interview room about 4 times which I think is rude. She also babbled a lot and spoke too quickly and had a nauseating laugh. She made a lot of claims about how fun and awesome it was to work at Montash and what a cool young environment it was. I was let on to the sales floor and have never seen such dissinterested miserable people in my life.
I had 3 interviews, one with the internal HR woman who sounds like a failed rec2rec, then with one of the contract managers who was very young but seemed like a nice enough guy, then with the CEO who acted like a mafia boss. He smelt of cheap aftershave and waffled on about Montash to the point I nearly fell asleep. The questions he asked were pretty standard, asked about where I came from and about my family.
The whole process was very unorganised and their receptionist at the front desk is absolutely oblivious to anything and everything, very rude as well.
On the plus side the offices did look smart apart from the death steel carpet and the messy interview rooms.Interview Questions
