    Pros

    Growing with Flat Structure - Great opportunities for those who bill well Environment is team driven, sporty and has an exciting sales floor Lots of money to be made with supportive management Great incentives for achievement - very good commission paid for in month starters, trips to Vegas, and recognition of star performance.

    Cons

    Lack of brand recognition - few inbound enquiries Location of Sutton is restrictive (London only 20 minutes away though)

    Advice to Management

    As the executives have gained managerial skills, so the company has grown with quality people who only want to work for them. Keep hiring good people to demonstrate required growth to the team.

    Pros

    Good office banter Located near to lots of retail/food outlets and not far from the BR station Have employed some experienced recruiters who have some good ideas Actively encourage sharing of knowledge About 50% of the management team leads from the front and knows their stuff

    Cons

    Lack of diversity within the team Lack of defined career development / training options About 50% of the management team is not very experienced in recruitment Aggressive sales approach, not relationship focused Static number of employees for a number of years despite growth plans Convoluted commission structure - different structure for different people with no apparent logic £10,000 monthly threshold (no commission paid out on first 10K of monthly billings) (!?)

    Advice to Management

    Consider developing closer client relationships and managing employees in a more transparent way Consider revising threshold to attract even higher quality individuals into the business
