I worked at Huxley Associates

Pros

Because they try to give a great sell on all how you can earn all this money. That you can go on some amazing trips all paid for. Organic growth.

Cons

It is expected of you that you work till 8pm and come in on the weekend and if you don’t you get fround apon, because you actually have a life outside of work.

They say they have organic growth but all the managers get brought in from overseas leaving no opportunity to grow into a leader in the office.

If you are eating after 9.01am or 2.01pm forget it, that is not allowed. If you are 1 minute late forget having lunch for the next few days as you will be manning the phones for everyone in the office. Going to the bathroom between 9-6pm is also scary.

If you would like to be verbally abused and cursed at for anything bad you have done, you would love this place.
If you are not offended by being called the F and C word everyday for no reasons at all, this is a great opportunity for you.

Retention……?

    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!
