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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsIt’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 Senior ManagementContinue to support the people in the business that could be future leaders.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Rollercoaster ride from the combined internal restructuring and external market conditions

    Consultant (Former Employee)

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

    ConsVenture 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.

    Poorly managed company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Non female friendly!

    Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
