    If you work hard and want to progress it’s a great company to work for

    I have been working at FiveTen Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You are not micro-managed and once you have proven yourself you are given the autonomy to make decisions that make a genuine impact. Very strong support functions.

    Cons

    It’s an exciting challenge rather than a con however the scale and complexity of the FiveTen Group matrix does require a lot of graft to excel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support the people in the business that could be future leaders.

    I worked at FiveTen Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are a few good consultants that actually take the time to learn their market and their candidate pool, but generally the standard is poor.

    Cons

    Over promise and under-deliver should be their motto. Senior management need to review their own capabilities as their attitude of do as I say not as I do sets a poor example. Very little in the way of coaching and development. Not a good place to learn your trade or indeed advance your career, there are much better agencies around. No wonder they struggle to keep staff.

    Rollercoaster ride from the combined internal restructuring and external market conditions

    I worked at FiveTen Group

    Pros

    Global brand, mobility opportunities, potential to join new markets / sectors, large scale recruitment firm that has kept its individual Brands under the Fiveten umbrella.

    Cons

    Venture capital buyout and newly merged company, at the time lacked leadership and strategic direction. Moving towards a Hudson business model, whether that is good or bad is a matter of opinion.

    Pros

    Great name in the market and lots of really good support from the senior staff. An great place to start your career

    Cons

    I dont think there really is a downside to working with WH Marks Sattin. The hours are very similar to most recruitment companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really enjoy the work at WH Marks Sattin and dont think is very much that can or needs to be changed

    I worked at FiveTen Group

    Pros

    there was a good scheme to reward top billers by trips to vegas and other places which was pretty good.

    Cons

    very poorly managed teams with the manegement gettign promoted into roles more by who they drink with. Most managers moved teams so didn't have any experience dealing with specific sectors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer leadership programs for people within the teams and promote in the teams. also distance yourself from the after work drinks to stop the clique.

    I worked at FiveTen Group

    Pros

    Its rreally good fun for graduates, with definately a big emphasis on the social side. Very young, fun atmopshere and easy to make friends

    Cons

    The place is a complete boys club- the men get promoted based on who they drink with in the pub and not based on any competence on their part. Unprofessional management, very 'cowboy' approach to their work. Would not recommend to anyone who took their career seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the competition - there is a reason staff turnover is so high. No value whatsoever is placed into decent employees.
