    I worked at Huxley Associates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great training, great systems, good crowd of people and team atmosphere, regular incentives, and career path should keep you going a while...

    Cons

    Pay is better elsewhere, and certainly not strong enough to attract seasoned recruiters. I guess this reinforces the organic growth model rule and the huge grad intake.

    The London office in particular is lacking dynamic top management, which does affect your work as you progress up the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look ahead more than next months billing figures. There are some good eggs but many top managers have made their buck already so seem to chillax too much. Taking the foot of the gas at the top loses business to competition and disengages staff below.

    Also, some managers only see their staff as numbers and need to be a bit more human- in an industry which, at the end of the day, is about people.

    Sociable enviroment

    Unbelievably inflexible working hours - turn up 1 minute late and see what happens, lunch can only be taken 1-2 etc etc
