I worked at Aston Carter full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good potential to earn.
They let you sleep for 6 hours a day, (but the rest you're expected at work)
Good banter before management stamp it out.

Cons

Hours are ridiculous
Management are inconsistent and make things up as they go.
Made to feel guilty for taking holiday and preferably not take it.
Trying to turn business into a factory with every minute accounted for and standardised, so free thinking not needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People perform better when they don't have someone standing over them every second asking what they are doing.
KPI's are not the most important thing in the universe
Good billers don’t necessarily make good managers.

    Positive, before the management became too greedy.

    I worked at Aston Carter full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent meritocratic structure, with a focus on rewarding excellence. Good salaries and benefits, with an average commission structure. Great working atmosphere with polite and well educated colleagues, and a fun environment within which to work in this pressurised industry.

    Cons

    Aggressive management with a favouritism towards legacy performers. Serious lack of investment in staff. No appreciation for the fact that the staff may actually be brighter than some of the management and have the potential to offer something extra - the problem when dumb people hire bright graduates and money loses its motivating edge...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking outside and see what you had right there in front of you. It just needed a little cultivating.
