    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Training is excellent, I can understand why they say it is the best in the industry, as an associate they put a lot of emphasis on training you to do your job well.
    Really fun environment to work in, lots of young like-minded people.
    Fair with the promotion from Associate to Consultant (Even if you don't hit your billing targets if they see you are trying hard you will get promoted).

    Cons

    Long hours!
    Fewer incentives,/perks compaed with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Arrange more office competitions or associate competitions with big prizes.
