Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Company has a fantastic reputation, but in the past 18 months there have been some profit warnings so things have not been so good.

We need Leaders who are inspired, have vision and are decisive to effectively manage the company. Have we lost our way?

Instead of cost cutting and redundancies.

    I worked at Brook Street full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at BS Social Care full-time back in 2010.
    - Great atmosphere all around, some smart people to work with and a very positive and welcoming environment initially.
    - You get trained for a few weeks, and then continually have in-house training sessions to help you grow and understand the market and the position eventually.
    - Regional & National competitions that had reasonable cash rewards.
    - Constant communication with colleagues from other branches.
    - Recognition from everyone for your achievements.

    Cons

    - Not keeping up with the ever changing market. Stuck in the dark ages of recruitment.
    - Expected to start at 7-7.30am in the morning and sometimes finish at 5-6pm, if you leave earlier, you are made out to be average or lacking commitment.
    - Bad practices by some management, sometimes placing clients at risk without their knowledge, such as sending unqualified staff to clients for qualified roles!
    - One member of senior management at the time I was there was intimidating and forced resignations to make it seem that trainees could not 'hack it'.
    - Talked down to by some members of management, not inspiring at all.
    - Discretionary bonus scheme, for Temps Consultants - an absolutely APPALLING practice.
    - Attrition rates are ridiculous, with some staff resigning at 3-6 month barrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure your senior management are inspirational; not neurotic power hungry egomaniacs!
