vanity of the executive board and ineptitude at a senior level
archaeic way of thinking and aversion to change in an industry which needs to adapt quickly

    Pros

    Rightly regularly winning the Times Best 100 Companies to work for, Macdonald & Company values your expertise and dedication, letting you be regularly promoted if your performance warrants it. There are also several perks and rewards on top of a great basic salary and generous commission scheme. If you are looking to work for a recruitment consultancy as a career rather than a stop-gap, then you won't do any better than here. Work-life balance is excellent with no pressure to stay after office hours (assuming you are pulling your weight!)

    Cons

    There are pressures to do well and your KPIs are monitored. However, if you are doing your job properly then this shouldn't be an issue.

  2. One of a kind.

    Pros

    Professional, we truly understand the recruitment industry and add real value to our clients businesses.

    Cons

    I don't really have any to report. Some frustrations with the sector but this isn't related to M&C.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going - I honestly see us continuing to progress and go from strength to strength.
