    Pros

    Definitely a work, rest and play hard company. A meritocracy that rewards hard work with great treats like Friday beers, nights out & trips away.

    Cons

    Support services staff are not always treated with equity compared to those in front office ysales. Tend to put emphasis on costs over value. Lots of egos in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your staff.

    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.
