Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant in London, England (UK)
Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant in London, England (UK)

I worked at Abika Consulting full-time (less than a year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Abika Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
