    Pros

    Great Training. This is a sales company and you are trained in every aspect of sales from lead generation, to business development, to contract negotiation. Many people make a 6 figure salary in less than 2 years. Office plans to double in size this year, then double again next year, and all growth is from within. Every manager came in as a consultant and you don't have to wait until the person above you is promoted in order to get promoted. If you hit the numbers you get the promotion. Fun culture, team atmosphere. Excellent sales training program, consultants learn a lot about the financial domain as well. Lots of team incentive trips, nights out on the company to cubs games and local events.

    Cons

    None. If you are a hard worker looking for career success there won't be any cons. People have to have a bit of patience, you don't get the 20K paycheck your first month, but if you put in the work there is so much potential to grow and earn

    Pros

    My experience, having been with the company for a few weeks now, has been a very positive one. The company is well established and has a huge amount of infrastructure, support, and training available. The staff have all been extremely welcoming, as well as showing that they are highly competent in their respective markets. There is a great atmosphere in the office, which creates a fun working environment in which there is a definitely a work hard, play hard approach to recruitment. There are significant perks to the job which include annual incentives, with trips to Vegas and Miami this year for example, as well as the opportunity to visit some of the most exclusive restaurants in Chicago via the 'Lunch Club' incentive scheme. The thing I like the most is the fact this is a shining example of a meritocracy. Staff can join and get multiple promotions within months depending entirely on said person's performance. There aren't many companies out there that can provide a clear path to six figure salaries/significant management responsibility in such a short space of time. I've worked for other recruitment companies in the past, but this is far and away the best I have experienced.

    Cons

    None as of yet, fingers crossed there aren't any!

    Pros

    Career Progression - its a meritorcracy and for someone who is prepared to work hard that is an amazing thing! I've never had to wait long for my next promotion for this exact reason.
    Comp - linked to performance so I've seen my comp grow year on year
    Personal Development - formal in-house training, mentoring opportunites, external training
    Fun - it never gets old - company trips to Miami, Vegas, team building events etc

    Cons

    Personally I love it here so have no complaints. Everyone is a hard worker so if you are lazy or have a sense of entitlement then this definitely would not be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great company - please continue to evaluate future employees on their drive, determination and work ethic so we can continue to build our amazing culture

    Pros

    Definitely opportunities for making some good money if you can excel as a recruiter. This is a sales job so do not mistake it as nothing else. The fun party about this sales job is that your products are other human beings who all have good stories. It is a game of chess finding the right candidate to match a particular position. The environment is young and fun. There are penty of incetives for those that can produce. From monthly outings to trip to Las Vegas and Miami.

    Cons

    You will be on the phone at least 4 hours a day - trying to find the right candidate, talking to clients, finding new clients, setting up interviews, etc. If you can't handle deadlines, sales targets, and heavy phone times, then your chances of success are slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying that the job is easy, if it where, the majority of the recruiters would be Top Billers.

    Pros

    Great people, great culture, lots of money

    Cons

    Sold as meritocratic, in reality, both tenure, meritocracy and favoritism count

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not pick favorites. It supposed to be a meritocracy, so treat it like one

    Exciting plans for growth in the Americas

    Pros

    I'm excited that the board has agreed to back huge growth in the Americas. We are about 140 ppl across the Americas right now and the plan is to grow to 500 by 2017. We only promote from within so there are opportunities for fast tracked career development into management and maybe even to open up new business areas

    Cons

    Not for the faint hearted or people who can't work in a loud, fast paced environment (not a con for me but I guess it's not right for some people)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stretch people so they can take on more and more responsibility

    Pros

    Huxley has always come through with what they have promised. That's hard to say about an employer. It's a work hard play hard environment and if you dedicate the time and hard work it will pay off. The company has strong financial backing of a larger parent company yet still retains an entreprenurial feel to the day to day work. If you identify an opportunity in the market, you are empowered to chase it and build a business around it. Great growth in the US and not stopping anytime soon!

    Cons

    Open floor plan - not the place to work if you want a cubicle and quiet setting. Relatively structured environment as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees and play to their strengths!
