    Very sorry to read that you don't feel included. Can I ask that you speak to Charlotte or me in confidence and discuss this as we clearly need to make sure everyone feels included.

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent training and management, overall very supportive of staff

    Cons

    Can be a little too KPI driven at times with people focusing more on activity rather than quality of output.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to people's motivations/interests to ensure you are placing them in the right team and give more opportunities to move into other specialisms.

    There is a fantastic atmosphere and culture which spans the globe. Always great people to work with, exciting and dynamic candidates and clients to work for.

    Pros

    PFJ has a great working environment, strong management team, great opportunities, and a fantastic benefits package. With flexible working hours you can maintain a good work life balance, after 7 years of working here i still enjoy coming to work!

    Cons

    There are no cons for me (apart from my long commute to work - but that is my choice). I have been given full training to do my job well, I have strong support from the management, i enjoy my team and working environment. The flexible hours mean my commute is more than manageable and i have earnt excellent commission / money here allowing me to embark on the property ladder and other exciting things.

    Advice to Management

    PFJ management team is always striving to improve the opportunities for the company and individuals, they listen to feedback and where applicable make improvements, i have been more than happy with all of my managers / directors over the years
