I worked at Hays plc full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

None at all, really. If you're a consultant you can make a fair whack of money but the stress aint worth it.

Cons

You're expected to work 12 hour days. Very target driven company, you're encouraged not to care about the jobseekers coming through the door. Some members of management can be rude and bolshy and don't won't speak to people who they see as 'inferior' ie receptionists and admin staff. Very b*tchy place, everyone seems to have 2 faces.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful who you stand on on the way up because they might be waiting for you on the way back down.
