    I have been working at Portland Resourcing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Egalitarian way of promoting - if you are a top biller and lead by example you can become a manager very quickly - you are not held back because someone else has been at the company longer.

    All Managers are promoted from within - experienced recruiters and managers are not hired in.

    Flat easy to understand commission structure. No overrides so you are paid the same commission for your first deal as you are for your last.

    Great reputation on the market - Portland are not a huge company but because they have remained independent and have not grown too quickly or diversified, they have been able to keep standards high and excel in the SAP recruitment market place.

    Ability to make very good money - I can't think of any other area where I could be making even half the money I am right now.

    Cons

    Long hours - as with any recruitment job!

    Slight lack of flexibility
