    Good place to have a fundamental understanding of Headhunting

    Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsThis 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst company to work with so far

    Associate Consultant (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsCentral area, looks fancy from the address

    Cons1. employees to them are just slaves who are asked to work 24/7 and compulsory OT and saturday BS trainings which last the whole day.
    2. some team leaders are into verbal abuse...be careful
    3. weird morning exercise and listening to the ceo talking about non sense such as if you can't do well here you are not good in bed...and coffee is bad for your healthy and sugar creates diabetes.
    4. CEO's morning exercise made ladies in tight skirt do squash...bending and stretching...
    5. they don't care if you are sick or if you work until really late. as long as you step into the company door 1 min later than 830...you will be scolded in front of everyone and that escalates to your attitude all the time

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with respect please.

    aggressive working environment suitable for senior & hard working consultants

    Associate Consultant (Former Employee) Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsThere are good training programs for some of the starters.Basically, it is an individual consulting job. Junior consultants are able to get an insight of the whole picture of executive search by practicing in each aspect; While hard working seniors are able to benefit from abundant incentives. Besides, there are systematic recruiting procedures based on reliable and functional data system, although it could also put into lots of additional data accessing work at first.

    Conshumble basic salary plus fancy incentive package which is extremely hard to get; changes in management all the time;very high employee turnover rate;very few team works;stupid staff training which is often not necessary to the job and arranged after working time.

    Advice to Senior Managementmake a more reasonable benefit structure and more autonomy instead of a push management and nonsense staff training

    Good training system for greenhands, fast tempo and huge number pressure; bad company culture

    Reginal Consultant (Former Employee) Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    ProsLeaders like to coach young consultants. Personally learned a lot and became a professional retained executive search consultant from this company. Fast tempo, direct communication style, clear industry and function focus which is good for consultants to build their own expertise.

    ConsTypical Singaporean style company with actually zero company culture. The only 'culture' is money. Company policy does not allow employees to do paperwork (writing reports etc.) during the 8 hours day time but can only do after work which is actually illegal. Long working time without paymetn for OT. Huge number pressure. Turnover rate high. If you cannot get good sales number within 6 months, the bosses will say bye bye to you. Local Chinese are hard to be promoted to leaders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor those Singaporean and Hong Kong leaders - be less mean and more caring with employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    PeopleSearch Group

    Regional Consultant (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGood reward system if you do well. Great gifts for performers during quarterly review. Good guidance and mentor if u have a understanding leader. There are a group of hard liners or top performers who will do anything to please the Chairman and his gangs (the BL & GBL) who can't work elsewhere due to limited knowledge in operational and functional except for in headhunting lines.

    ConsLike HRnetOne, there is no sustainability in the company. Almost all the master headhunters who received lucrative awards had left the company. Chairman is weird and often come out with nonsense ideas. The GBL or country managers generally have to obey to his military instruction. Don't talk about passion, all he wants is to be richer and get his people to generate the wealth for him. A payroll cost which links to your basic is tied back to your incentive, i.e., your incentive will only be pay upon if you hit 3 times of your payroll cost and after the deduction of your payroll cost, tax, CPF of employer's portion, etc. everything here is about results, don't talk or bother about the industry outlook. There are more like MLM rather than a good corporation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe chairman should step back and retire as an independent non-executive director. Hand over the company to a more professional team of leaders. Don't treat your employees like a cash cow and belittle or even humiliate your staff in front of others. The chairman should really learn to be a good leader, your words are not motivating or encouraging at all. Reflect on those who have left and what have you done wrong. You talk about good culture and good governance but you suffer from high attrition rate. You talk about humility and

    Not a sustainable firm to work in

    Consultant (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsThe compensation system can be quite rewarding if you really work like hell.

    ConsIt is interesting to see that two current employees give very high scores and former employees gave very low score.

    1. The company used to focus on high end headhunting, and mostly run projects mostly on retained base, and now because the industry is more competitive, the company switch to both. It is like when Porsh sees other car makers start to have similar products in the market, it switches to low end market. Not sustainable strategy.

    2. Don't come with expectation as "consultant", although people around you may keep reminding your title is consultant. If you take the job, you are just a telephone sales, with headset on your head all day. One of your KPI will be how many people you talked to a day instead of really make find the right people.

    3. The company use very proactive method in candidate searching. Which means you need to take all the ways that you can think of to reach the people in certain position. well, of course, if you are not comfortable with lying all the time in all kinds of different characters, it is not the right job for you.

    4. There is no concept of work life balance in the company. the senior manager will try to wash your head since day one that work is life and life is work and everyone live life in this way.

    5. The weekly KPI meeting can be funny and depressing. You can tell how hard people are trying to cook their numbers to not look bad. Honest people can't really survive in the company. Other than the numbers, you also need to lie once in a while about your feeling in the company. Not sure why everyone does it, guess someone before tried to be honest, didn't end well.

    6. I am pretty sure the senior managements are well aware that as the nature of the job, it is almost impossible to leave office at 5:30pm( office off work time), So they set the starting time at 8:30am. Not to mention workshops arranged at 5:00pm or Saturday Sunday. Even it is holiday, no excuses will be accepted, since it means you don't have enough passion for your job. This constantly gives me the feeling of being deployed. The funny thing is the management often says that the company is the most general company and caring employee, since from 8:30 to 9:00 am the company organize employees to do exercise.

    7. There is indeed year end incentives, well, for the last year, most people who received the incentives are administrative staff.

    8. The turn over rate is very very high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime to hand the firm to professional and well educated managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
