Current Employee - Senior Consultant in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in London, England (UK)

I have been working at Hays plc full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good pay/ commission
Good office banter

Cons

Terrible management- awful management style, unmotivating, unrealistic expectations.
Hierachy between senior managers and other staff- "us and them" culture
All KPI driven- care more about whether you're hitting your target than whether you're actually providing clients with a decent service.
Tar each consultant (whether billing a lot or not) with the same brush
Hire and fire culture
Long hours
Unappreciative of hard work
Unflexible- time off sick is almost not allowed
Too many office politics
Staff are not valued at all, as soon as you're not hitting your targets your got rid of. I wasn't persoanlly but saw it happen to other people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Motivate and value your staff more.
Stop making employees work extensive hours
Spend a week in consultants shoes and see how tough the job is before you implement targets.
