    Small but professional and innovative team that consistently delivers outsourced HR services to mid-range businesses.

    I have been working at Achilles Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is one of the best perks. Contributions are recognized and rewarded. Team is relaxed but professional.

    Cons

    Challenging to adapt to multiple corporate cultures during the workday. Resources sometimes stretched thin and out of balance with work load, but that is something all small companies experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue providing innovative HR services for a profit, and not be tempted to revert to providing the old-school sort of HR bureaucracy we all know, hate and eventually escaped from.

    Good environment, great value to clients, building a great team from the ground up. IS practicing what it preaches to its clients and has come a long way in the last two years.

    Small company, small budget. But great opportunities for those who help it grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Achilles Group (the 10 year old HR Consulting based in Houston, TX - not the unassociated Achilles company from the UK mentioned here by a couple of x-employees www.achilles.com) is a GREAT place to work. We provide high quality HR, Training and Recruiting services to our clients at reasonable rates. We're a results driven company so nobody is hawking over you all the live long day telling you what to do so if you're not a self starter who can manage your own desk, this isn't the place for you. Achilles Group has an awesome benefits package and a ridiculously generous time off policy. For career minded HR professionals, you can't beat this job with a stick; interesting HR work with the spirit of entrepreneurs but the support of an established company!

    Cons

    Nothing really worth mentioning here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Achilles Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paid Medical Healthcare, relax until you find something better-

    Cons

    Very unorganized, email and phones are never working at the same time-Bad Compensation
    If you're a Professional Salesperson do not let them Con you into taking this job. It is not a serious job. This company is from the UK representing Shell. If Shell knew what a poor job they are really doing they would not pay them for performance. The work environment is slow paced and lacks professioanalism. A kid out of High School can do this job. Don't waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth about the compensation, benefits, and the overall job

    Very Interesting Company with great Prospects.

    I have been working at Achilles Group as an intern

    Pros

    As an intern within the company, Achilles has provided me with a great insight into the world of procurement and supplier information management. I have learnt the complexities of an organisations procurement process and how well Achilles is able to cleanse data leading to a more fluid process and more accurate information. Great place to work if you would like a challenge and also flexible hours with the "Flexi time" system. I see great prospects for Achilles and will be keeping a close eye on its growth after my intern-ship finishes.

    Cons

    Communication with global offices can be challenging but as Achilles continuous to grow it will soon be able to cope with such issues and improve its communication effeciencies as a global company.

    I worked at Achilles Group

    Pros

    They have a great time off policy - you're an adult act like it! Base salary was competitive with local market.

    Cons

    Achilles doesn't know what they want to be when they grow up.
    Too much internal conflict
    As a HR Consulting form you would like that they would have policies similar to that of what is recommended to their clients - they don't!
    Everyone tries to back-stab each other behind backs and then to your face tells you how wonderful you are.
    The company used to assist with outside sales is terrible - better off with a monkey.
