I have been working at SThree full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The offer you significant support and training in your first year
It's a plc, and very successful - you will feel part of a huge corporate, that offers security and career growth
Due to their size, they offer you significant resources - advertising budget, huge database, advanced CRM software
Good earning potential, especially for graduates

Cons

For such a successful firm, the senior management are not good role models
Very micro-managed sales processes, very KPI driven
One size fits all approach (certainly in my office)
Hyper competitive - one on one, teams, offices, brands. Very little team work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more creative where possible and set targets that are based on achievability.

    I worked at SThree full-time

    Pros

    They seem to pick good and interesting staff ..

    Cons

    ..and then they treat them badly. Instead of valuing people, they are micro-managed and treated like children. Managers are cliquish with each other but would not associate with other staff in an honest manner. All the good people are trying to leave. Managers monopolise the best tasks and do not share them in order to develop their team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as you would like to be treated.
    Notice people's hard work and give them credit for it.
    Don't persist in disregarding some and privileging others.
