I have been working at Morgan McKinley as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Morgan McKinley is a great company to work for and with. There are some very very talented people in the organisation. People are not micro-managed they are 'led' in many cases though not all.

At Morgan McKinley you get autonomy and if you have an opinion or an idea that you are willing to share you will be listened to.

Work here if you want to make a difference and not just be an employee.

Cons

However the sales culture that is recruitment means that sometimes communication can be flawed.
I see a very high staff turnover however that is expected in recruitment but it means there are inconsistencies with how we present ourselves.
Training and development could be improved
I think the general working hours in the London office should be shorter

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More creativity and collaboration.

    I worked at Morgan McKinley full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compared to other agencies Ive worked for, Morgan McKinley had nothing special to offer.
    Office in Dublin has lots of natural daylight. I suppose that was a pro

    Cons

    100% micro managed.
    Very high levels of administration tasks to complete for example being required to do two reference checks on every single candidate interviewed if they were placed or not.
    Unbelievable amounts of KPI's to meet including - no. of phonecalls. no. of internal interviews, no. of CV send outs, no of business development calls, no of speculative CVs sent, no. of client meetings, no of references completed, no. of new jobs acquired, no of candidate interviews.
    Meetings about meetings.
    Weak middle management team.
    Extremely high levels of new business development required.
    Personally I had ethical questions about some information stored about candidates including defamatory opinions and a 'do not use' button based on some consultants personal opinions about a candidates appearance or personality. This was used a lot on the desk I worked.
    Management constantly looking for 'flexiblity' in terms of hours of work but not willing to give same flexibility back. For example, I worked until 7pm most evenings but when I requested an early lunch break to attend a doctors appointment I was asked why I couldn't change the appointment to after working hours and was 'awarded' the early break begrudgingly.
    Some of the management team acted very unprofessionally by making personal remarks during the weekly 'performance reviews'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating consultants and support staff like grown ups - Hope that a candidate doesnt some day request a copy of some of the information stored about them and sue you for defamation of character

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time

    Pros

    Excellent earning potential for top performers
    Really good culture
    Great leadership team

    Cons

    The fast pace of the environment may not suit everyone - it is certainly not a 9-5 job so flexibility required.
