    I worked at Aston Carter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent training and the opportunity to learn the job from some of the best consultants in the city. Generally speaking, perm team consists of some very bright people who are very capable. Good approach to recruitment, quality driven and research focused.

    Cons

    Ridiculous work/life balance that needs to be addressed. Hours for perm team are officially 8-6, but expect to be at your desk for 07:30 and in the office until 20:00. Nothing productive happens after half 6, it's just a case of waiting out management. Inter-team politics and favoritism from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address work life balance as it is the reason for staff turnover.
