    Blue chip client base although tend to favor larger corporate clients.
    More recent diversity in client base.
    Often have large volume hire clients.
    Can travel internationally in some instances.

    Cons

    Very cliquey atmosphere,your face must fit and you must toe the corporate line.
    Work-life balance needs attention.
    Lots of travel and working outside of core hours with no extra compensation.
    Over complicated career structure with debatable annual performance reviews.
    Middle/senior managers out of touch with reality due to glossy presentations from managers.
    Tendency to promote good recruiters versus those that can/do manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize internal talent.
    Develop a real life succession planning model instead of promoting those who are well seen/heard and bezzie mates with middle/senior managers.
    Lead by example

    Pros

    Great team to work in, i worked within AMS's RPO division on-site at a US Investment Bank in Canary Wharf, people i worked with were fab, hours were ok, lots of holidays if you buy holidays as well.

    Cons

    Bonus's very poor, if you are joining AMS for the money don't bother, base was ok, but if i worked in an agency i would have earned at least double my base in bonus's given the number of direct hires i made. Too much change, as AMS are an RPO people move from account to account on a regular basis, lack of local leadership. Also working for an RPO on site you don't command the same respect as an in-house team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install a real bonus system that motivates staff, turnover would be a lot lower.
