    I have been working at Goodman Masson full-time

    Pros

    Goodman Masson has created a unique atmosphere and an amazing place to work, not just for a recruitment firm, but for any type of employer. Given we are currently working in a bouyant market you get approaches all the time, but none turn my head given what I have here (environment and reward)

    Cons

    to be honest, it is hard to think of any


  3. Award winning for a reason.....

    Pros

    Won "Best Place to Work" for the Experience (this is what the employee engagement strategy is labelled under) and it is not smoke and mirrors. From ensuring the best of support, through to proper career planning, good financials and loads of fun you really feel that the company is looking after you and your career. I have been here 6 years and in that time have made some serious money, been promoted 3 times, bought a house thanks to mortgage scheme and been on 3 ski trips, 2 other holidays and some nights out. Not a lot more to say really other than lovely people top middle and bottom.

    Cons

    Some people maybe don't realise how good they have it!

    Advice to Management

    Now we've won the Award where does the Experience go next?

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, great leadership, fantastic employee benefits and experience, genuinely support entrepreneurial flair. Run like a proper company, rather than a sweat shop like many recruitment firms.

    Cons

    Employee rewards heavily focussed on getting hammered all the time.

    I worked at Goodman Masson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Higher basic salaries compared to competitors. 3.30pm Friday finishes are good as is the benefit scheme offering reduced travel card, cycle to work scheme etc.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional company with a very poor senior management team. Heavily KPI driven environment with daily/weekly catch up's on why you haven't done 50 sales calls or spent x amount of time on the phone. Massive party culture with the SMT always involved and encouraging this further - as the review below - this goes beyond just after work drinks.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain good staff treat people as individuals and away from the KPI driven environment. Your benefits are great but people are very quickly realising that it isn't all about benefits and basic salary. People want to look up to the SMT as role models which is not what you have at the moment.

    Pros

    Great engagement between owners, leaders and staff. Excellent use of data to help a consultant manage their desk properly and strategically Excellent leaders with very different styles Constant review of an already award-winning benefits package

    Cons

    Is 'work hard, play hard' still what will be the best strategy in 5 years' time?

    Advice to Management

    Training for fresh grads or junior consultants in need of a tighter, standardised approach.

    Pros

    Great learning ground if you're young and if you're an older recruiter you will be rewarded with the freedom to flourish. GM do truly offer a great opportunity to grow your career whilst making some good money with superb leadership. This company treats people with respect and the confidence to go out and build a brand for yourself and teach people how to do business the right way. The leadership and mentor guidance from the top is second to none. It was a real joy to go to work everyday. Clients and Candidates liked hearing from us. It all sounds to good to be true but they are genuinely one of the best contingent recruiters to work for in the City. I wish them the best for the future and will keep a fond eye on how they progress.

    Cons

    Maybe location but its no big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and rewarding the entrepreneur.

    Pros

    Approach to business development, great and consistent training which isn't generically forced but tailored to you, strong management team who are transparent and involved in the business, loads of benefits and they look after all of their people. Continued development opportunities at all levels - very clear career path

    Cons

    Outside of the meeting room suites, the sales floor itself could do with a facelift!

    Advice to Management

    More of the same please.
