    Cons

    PCTs (System used to grade our goals and compensate us if goals achieved) are a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its great that your taking our opinions on board and the changes are very much welcomed. Just wish PCT process was in fact linked to our bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Strong brand recognition, internationally recognized name. They have a good training program for new recruiters. You can be very successful and make a lot of money.

    Cons

    - Micromanagement to the extreme
    - Prepare yourself for a high stress environment
    - Almost unachievable goals unless you are willing to work a 60+ hour week and only get a nominal salary for 40 hours
    - If you want to be in the top percentage and make a lot of money, give up your personal/family life and devote all your time to your job.
