    Pros

    Good team nights out, Senior colleagues that will help you on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The management treat their staff like they are at school. You feel pressured on a daily basis and get shouted at in front of everyone if you make a mistake. For example saying the wrong thing on the phone, a spelling mistake or something simple as having papers on your window ledge.

    Contracted hours were from 08:30-17:30 - The management introduced longer worker hours so they could get more out of them employees, which meant staying till 19:00 / 20:00 or later on a daily basis. This was not optional, Your activity including call times were checked by the management in the morning and If they were not up to par you would be taken into a meeting room to discuss performance.

    If you arrived at 8:25am in the morning managers would look at you as if you were late!

    If you were a minute late from your lunch break you were shouted at and made feel small in front of other colleagues.

    New consultants had to cover evenings and lunches. This meant manning the phones while you eat over lunch, and additionally doing this from 17:30-19:00 once a week, which was a necessity.

    Your every email was checked, every job advert and calls were listened in to – This was not to help coach, but to pick on downfalls to discuss later.

    You were made to post fake job adverts to generate leads and speak to candidates about fake roles you are currently working on with a client.
    One occasion I was made to, post a fake advert, create a candidate shortlist to speak to about the fake role, get the candidates excited about it and then in a couple weeks tell them the role had been filled. Whilst speaking with the candidates I was made to extract information from them – ie: Other roles they have been put forward for or where else are they interviewing. I would then have to use this information to my advantage and send other candidates to the role they were interviewing for – making it even more competitive for the candidate. This was immoral and goes against life values, by putting someone elses opportunity in jeopoardy.

    Definitely would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing your staff and treating them like kids.

    Pros

    You can- if you work all hours given- make great money! The salary structure is good. It outlines exactly what you need to do in order to get a salary increase which increases after you have been there for a certain amount of years.

    Cons

    If you are 5 minutes late all hell will break lose! The management in the company is what lets it down the most! They make you feel you are back at school with very strict regimes and no sense of responsibility. For them it is all about making money, not how employees think and feel. There did not seem to be a set path to follow as aims would constantly change as they go along. The only time they seemed to be happy was if you made money. If you didn't- you must have a good reason for not! The working hours are awful. They say the time is all yours and no one will clock watch you, they lied. They will! If you leave at 5.45 it must be for a very good reason!!

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees more!
