Excellent people, long hours, little to no reward and terrible pay and benefits.

I worked at Pertemps full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The people are fantastic. It is a place that catches lots of people when they are on the up.

You gain a varied skillset and are given the chance to try lots of things.

Cons

Low salaries and bonuses. The salary is on average £5,000-£8,000 lower than market rate.
Non existent training.
Terrible work life balance because instead of hiring enough people to do the work well they hire bare bones with no experience give minimal training so that they are cheap.
Senior managers are told to not tell other employees about schemes such as shares etc.
Every year you work you gain a full day of holiday up to a certain point however in your last year your holiday is calculated the same as your very first year regardless the blood,sweat, and tears have gone into the company.
Company wide survey published in the newsletter mentioned all of the above and more yet the response from head office is looks at the results we have such nice people here, rather than address the negative points.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff.
Pay people what they deserve.
Invest training into your staff.
Reward hard work.

    Pros

    Really cannot think of anything unless you have been with the company for a minimum of 5 years.... You then can sort of match the external benefits to some start up recruitment agencies

    Cons

    Very low basic pay, sick pay, maternity leave, bonus/ comission and holiday allowance
    Expected to work outside of office hours daily, this is the culture of the company- 1 person doing 3 peoples jobs.
    Little budget and perks for staff - outside of managment
    No development unless you are based in the midlands where the Head office is
    Managed by people who have bene with the company for over 15 years, little innovation or knowledge of the external recruitment market
    Little or no training for new starters
    Low emploee retention
    Like going back 30 years in recruitment and the systems they use

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and value your good staff.
    Get new and fresh senior managment- out with the old!
