Not a pleasant or dynamic place to work, strong brand recognition from a career building perspective.

I worked at Hays plc

Pros

Brand recognition, ability to earn,

Cons

Senior management rarily come from any external business so their ability to think 'outside the box' is shocking. Transparency in communication is terrible and many senior level staff think they are really 'playing the game', however based on the culture and organisational design of their business they actively support individuality, and do not support team work. Should you choose to work at Hays expect to work on your own and have others actively work against you. A very dry, British business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some senior staff from other organisations. With Alistair coming into the business there is the potential for change, however I think he's been brought in to boost stock prices and sell the place . . . .
