Former Employee - Waste of My Time
Former Employee - Waste of My Time

I worked at Hays plc

Pros

If 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.

Cons

Where 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 Outdated business approach, useless management that will hinder your every good idea.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 ManagementAdvice

Your company needs a complete overhaul. A modern business model and a refresher course in business ethics would be a good start.

    Pros

    - Young team members

    - Sometimes a bit too KPI driven
    - Not very international environment (mostly CH and DE people, no sole english speakers)
