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

    Pros

    team driven,some management support, non management staff is very good and supportive.

    Cons

    Old technology, doesn't match up against competitors not much scope for progression and increase in salary for non fee earners management focused on fees rather than development of individuals who can bring in new ideas

    Advice to Management

    focus on new ideas and technology fee earners are important but non-fees earners do the background work which should be recognized. senior management wants to hit their targets even if they have to step over others. favouritism is all over the business.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you do well and your face fits and the right people like you, they will make a job for you if you don't make it as a recruiter, they are actually quite patient and understanding in that sense. Also quite understanding in times when you need them to be, after a family bereavement they helped me out with counselling etc. Decent bunch of people as well.

    Cons

    Salaries are pretty average, commission is only good if you are a huge biller, 20K+ per month also regardless of their corporate nonsense that they feed you the market you recruit in is hugely determinant of your success, some of the biggest billers had one client of which they did not obtain themselves.... easy life for some... stupid number of KPI's... really stupid and largely pointless. they have a bad name in many markets they work in, there is a lot of infighting over accounts they have an immense amount of poor people employed there as well who make clients view them even worse, and they insist on using e-shots to pepper their clients

    Advice to Management

    time to change your strategy and get out of the dark ages of recruitment
