    Remember that the company is not just made up of recruitment consultants, and they couldn't do their job without the support of others

    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working for a big brand looks ok on the cv although everyone knows by now that they are churning our mediocrity

    Cons

    Sexist lad culture

    Nightmare interview process with the most self important madam ever to walk the earth that was more interested in her engagement/ wedding than candidates

    The assessment day was a generic balloon debate in which it was easy to win over the room and showed nothing of my recruiting abilities

    Followed by a presentation 4 stages later where the management pretended to be bored, yawn and one even pretended to check his phone even though I had seen it run out of batter as I walked in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the internal recruiters
    Sort out the sexist culture
    Sort out the commission structure on contract

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
