    Pros

    This company used to be a retained searching firm, and most of its senior leaders still works as a typical retained Consultant, you can engage with lots of senior candidates and you can learn a lot from the senior candidates. Moreover, you have quite independency to handle your own cases, as long as you can show the progress or the result after spending your effort and company's money.

    Cons

    No work and life balance, they will brainwash you like "work is life, life is work, so, your work and life balanced!"
    The morning exercise could be quite annoying to some people
    No appreciation and no fun environmental, even you did something good, they will only say "what's the next?"
    Everyday, Every week, Every month, only thing is NUMBER, if you can't cooking the NUMBERS, you will suffer.
    Almost no training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire a new role, please be realistic and have a proper training process, give them guidance.

    Pros

    HR and Operation Process are smooth. Able to learn the recruitment industry
    Peers are always friendly and helpful

    Cons

    No such thing as work life balance, CEO believes that your work is your life and there is no such thing as leaving on time even when work is completed as it would look like you are not putting enough effort.
    Company speaks about promoting a healthy lifestyle by enforcing a morning exercise that the CEO will join in. He will ridicule you in front of the crowd if you are unable to perform some of the exercise that leaves you sweaty and sticky which makes you feel uncomfortable to work.

    Company gives more merits on "old heads" and your efforts are measured based on how the "old heads" deem suffice.
    You will never get more than 2 days leave even if you manage to reach your target as they believe you should work on your next quarters target.
    You need to come in on a Saturday every quarter to have a meeting and comparison on numbers from every department which every team will try to inflate or make their team sound as they are doing better than they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a choice to the employee if he/she would prefer working than being forced to exercise or watch videos for half to an hour that we are required to compensate by working longer.
    Encourage work life balance rather than forcing employees who are facing a temporary drought to come in on Saturdays where they don't actually do anything.

    Pros

    - None as highly apparent in their very high turnover rate.

    Cons

    - Commissions are usually held a very long time be before you get paid.
    - Management is highly focus on results and does not really care about their people
    - Use money to incentivize their people and will impose harsh penalties for those do not deliver
    - Long overtime and after office hours meetings
    - Drive you like slaves in order for them to reach their goals
    - Certainly not a good company to work in

    Pros

    Fancy work location in Orchard Road

    Cons

    1. The Chairman is God in the company. Likes to spend on fine dining restaurants, expensive hotels for his business trips and company functions (but only when the event involves him). The cost will then be borne by the respective business units affecting their bottom line.
    2. Management team play along to every nonsensical idea from the Chairman. They are weak in challenging their superior and lack leadership to create a sustainable work place; leading to high turnover.
    3. Taking annual leave (anything more than 2 days in a row) requires some earth-shaking reasons unless your sales numbers are flying.
    4. There is no such thing as work-life balance. Work is life and life is work, they said.
    5. There is little headhunting skill-sets to be acquired these days since delivery is all about speed in contingent business; resulting in low quality of work.
    6. When people leave the company, management do not reflect upon themselves to understand the reasons. They are only concern with how low staff strength may affect sales and profitability and then proceed to hire aggressively to fill the gap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the Chairman is not going to step down anytime soon, it helps if you listen more than you speak.

    Pros

    Good place to learn about executive search and build skillsets as a recruiter. Highly demanding and work in pressure, toughen you up. Interaction with high calibre candidates and clients.

    Cons

    Really sick place, company culture all about money and build values on monetary benefits. Brain wash you by making you read books on how to be great in sales, the secret then make you take tests on them. Fine you for being late even though you have to work long hours. Stretch you and resources are non existent, you have to do a-z by yourself. You have NO life outside work, work life balance non existent and I hated weekend trainings, quarterly SP, real waste of time and life. Leaders there has NO corporate experience whatsoever, family business way of management by 1 man- Peter sim who is treated like god.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in real professional managers and start treating your only resource - people decently.
