Entrepreneurial Culture with Team Environment

Recruitment Consultant (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Michael Page International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have to say I am a little disappointed to read a few of the previous reviews. From a personal perspective I have loved my experience at Michael Page International so far and am proud to work for the firm. I feel I have benefited from excellent training, genuine support from my Manager and Directors and am surrounded by bright, smart, passionate and hardworking people that are all genuinely keen to see you succeed. Recruitment is not for everyone however, it takes a resilient nature and tolerance for hard work to build a business and network but the results and bonuses are worth it. I believe the comments people have made below about MPI being all "stats, stats, stats" are misleading; while the business like all recruitment companies operates with some key performance indicators generally they are used as a roadmap to help new consultants get into good routines and practices. I find that those who focus on these metrics in their reviews are typically the under performers in the business that often haven't experienced the highs that this industry can bring when you are successful. I think some of the comments about european leadership issues were partly true across the CT and NY offices in the past (new, better leadership has been brought in recently) however offices like Boston experience very little turnover and have strong management team.

ConsOut of date systems but they are in the process of being upgraded
Little investment in brand recognition from Marketing

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep supporting strong managers who care about their teams - they are critical to growth.
Try to copy the Boston office's success a little more in other regional offices.
Invest more in localized brand awareness initiatives

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
