I have been working at Nigel Frank International full-time (less than an year)

Pros

This company really cares about keeping its employees happy, especially those that are giving back. The compensation is hard to argue with (100k+ your first year out of college? Show me another job that is looking at that level of opportunity), the people are amazing and at ANY point if you aren't happy, all you have to do is voice your concern to your team lead or manager. Anyone who gets a job here and is willing to do what it takes should seriously be thanking their lucky stars!

Cons

Frankly, it's not great for work-life balance, at least for people that love money! Most people are willing to stay late, work hard and pay their dues to get killer pay checks and play hard. This is not a good environment for someone looking just for a 9-5 to pay the bills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Nigel Frank International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    First of all, I consider having ANY job to be a "pro." There are a lot of people who would kill for a job.

    The pros of working at Nigel Frank are monthly alcoholic binge fests, decent sales training, and a lot of performance based incentives ie. expenses paid business trips. If you are a millennial, you are working with people your age who understand how much the job can suck. The "growth potential" is also a plus.

    Please note: The workplace policies for any recruiting firm, or ANY place of employment for that matter, are practically the same no matter where you work. No one recruiting firm is better or more/less strict and at the end of the day, a job is a job. Ask 100 individual if he/she likes his/her job and you'll only hear 2-5 people say "yes."

    Cons

    Some of your "managers" are your peers who have never had any sort of real management training. This leads the constructive criticism to sound condescending, disrespectful, rude, etc.

    The attainability of "career progression" is all tied to how much time you can afford to spend at work. There is no overtime at Nigel Frank. In essence, you receive your overtime pay when you receive your hard earned commission. You are not forced to stay beyond the 8 hour work day but it is expected if you want to make "mad money."

    The poor work-life balance makes your colleagues your dating pool.

    The starting base salary is low compared to Nigel Frank's competitors.

    Nigel Frank still has some kinks to work out within HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are more likely to stay with the company when they feel appreciated. If team leaders and managers are talking to you like you're an idiot while coaching you, it creates a bit of a hostile work environment.

    Granted, no two leaders are ever the same, but the inconsistencies with how each team operates can make someone feel like they're being singled out.

    I have been working at Nigel Frank International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, huge upward mobility potential, company equity, international travel, money, lunch at 5 star restaurants on company dime, fun sales days, excellent training. There is the potential to make an absolute killing here, while the initial base may be low, within the first year I cleared $80+k. After doing door to door sales for nearly a year, what I make now in one month is the same to what I made combined in 8 months there.

    Cons

    long hours, you're not forced to work long, but if you want to make good money it is advantageous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the development of your younger employees, they are the key to continued success
