Completely unprofessional company

Waste of My Time (Former Employee)

I worked at Hays plc

ProsIf you need a job and can't find anything else, work here. Pay is acceptable if you're willing to work long hours and give up a personal life.

ConsWhere to start? It's easier to just say this company is awful in every respect. Outdated business approach, useless management that will hinder your every good idea.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour company needs a complete overhaul. A modern business model and a refresher course in business ethics would be a good start.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

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… Advice to Senior Management: Hire some senior staff from other organisations. With Alistair coming into the business there is the potential for change,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
