    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

    Central area, looks fancy from the address

    Cons

    1. 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect please.

    I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    humble 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 ManagementAdvice

    make a more reasonable benefit structure and more autonomy instead of a push management and nonsense staff training

    Pros

    Leaders 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.

    Cons

    Typical 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 ManagementAdvice

    For those Singaporean and Hong Kong leaders - be less mean and more caring with employees.

    I worked at HRnet One Pt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Like 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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
