I worked at Huxley Associates

Pros

Hours are good, you earn your money on commission, if you work hard you get massive rewards, such as holidays abroad, rolex watches, lunch at posh restaurants etc. Can (and it has been done) make £100,000 in your first year. Very entrepreneurial company to work for.

Cons

Performance related environment, the commission side of it has a flip side that leads to a very stressful job, your performance is constantly being reviewed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to improve retention of the junior consultants, but a lot of this loss is in the end probably the best for both parties. Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    - Good Sales Training
    - Lots of after-work functions
    - Complete meritocracy / Organically grown company
    - You can make a lot of money...but usually after a few years.

    Cons

    - Very poor work / desk set up...absolutely zero privacy!
    - Only one break a day from 1-2pm...that's it.
    - Hours are 9am - 6pm (but you are expected to stay later...and even come in on weekends).
    - Management can be very condescending and disrespectful...(they love to make a big deal out of anything...in front of everyone...throwing in a few cuss words for kicks).
    - Very poor work-life balance...you will usually leave the office after 7pm daily...so on average you will work 10+ hours per day.
    - Lots...lots...lots of stress!
    - Very micromanaged setting - KPI's & daily setups down the the minutes!
    - Not a flexible environment at all...you can never be late...ever...no matter the situation...or you will be reprimanded and forced to cover the phones for 3 days...allowing you only a 30 minute lunch break for those days!!!

    The list can go on forever...but I would be here for days. In a nutshell...not the best place to work for unless you don't mind living and breathing Huxley...and completely giving up any sort of social life outside of Huxley...without making any real money until you've been brainwashed after a few years...like I almost was!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up a bit...adapt to the American way of life...ease up on the foul language in the office...keep things professional...stop with the silly competitions (they just add lots of unneeded pressure to an already stressful environment)...and just BE HONEST...stop trying to sell us a dream!

    Was du einbringst, das bekommst du auch raus. Gutes Geld, aber nicht einfach. what you put in, is what you get. Good money, but not easy.

    Pros

    Man bekommt tolle Belohnung für Erfolg. Reisen ins Ausland, gute Provisionsregelung und Karrierechancen. Es herrscht eine gute Atmosphäre und es kann Spaß machen, dort zu arbeiten. Anerkennung vom Management, wenn man etwas leistet.

    You get great rewards for being successful. Trips abroad, good commission scheme and career opportunities. There is a good atmosphere and it can be a fun place to work. Recognition form management if you perform.

    Cons

    Kurzfristige Ergebnisse stehen zu sehr im Mittelpunkt. Raue Kultur, wenn man nichts leistet. Nicht man selbst entscheidet, auf welchem Markt man arbeitet, also kann man auf einem langsamen Markt enden.

    Too much emphasis on short term output. Harsh culture when not performing. It is not you that chooses what market you will be working on, so you could end up working on a slow market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Versuchen Sie den Fokus auf langfristige Ziele zu legen und es sollte weniger um Telefonverkäufe gehen

    Try to keep a long term focus and make it less about telesales
