I have been working at Hays plc full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It is a small head office with a relatively good atmosphere and can do mentality. It is not an hours for the sake of hours mentality.

Cons

It is an unforgiving company and there is a high attrition rate in the first year for al lfunctions. Most of the head office functions are relatively small so opportunities outside of finance can be limited.

Advice to Management

None. Everyone knows the score. Its a typical sales company.

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

    Pros

    people in this company are very casual, they have parties almost ever Friday. You will work closely to your manager.

    Cons

    The compititions there were a lot, mangers will not protect you if you do anything wrong. They will not tell you what is wrong before you have done things wrongly.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assign traineess to any managers before the training program is done. It is very unfair if the manager is not responsible.

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Office atmosphere buzzing every day. The calibre of staff is excellent with everyone helping to push each other on to achieve goals every day. Helpful and friendly culture which promotes best practice.

    Cons

    Somewhat restricted with involvement in back-office process which can cause a back-log of paperwork and administration. Sometimes this can cause time to be wrapped up in sorting this out which detracts from sales activity.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline admin as it piles up and takes up a lot of time that could be better spent elsewhere. It would be useful if staff were in place specifically to deal with these issues. It would allow us more time to generate placements.
