I worked at Hays plc full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The only recruitment company to take on graduates with no recruitment experience.

Cons

Starting salary on graduate scheme of £15,000 sounds ok when you have just finished uni and are promised fast progression but divide that up by the unofficial 50+ hours per week and it is well below minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More honesty about the working hours from the start.

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big picture view - exciting, insightful, challenging and have made great strides in the last few years to become a thought leader, to position brand, to have a more joined up (global approach)
    On the floor - many great teams, good dynamic, good fun
    Defined career path and structured traning if in sales.
    If not in sales - you can make a role your own by proving your strengths, getting involved.

    Cons

    Your experience as an employee at Hays can drastically differ from one office/team to the next, very much dependent on who you work for.
    Big picture - much work to be done to become more joined up (may be a UK thing)
    On the floor - it is a sales environment, with an old sales & long hours culture, KPIs, KPIs, KPIs
    No defined career path or structured training if not in sales - it's totally up to you and expect to hit the 'glass ceiling' at some point unless you work in London.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to build a stronger marketing function that lead the way in terms of marketing and sales strategy.
