    Pros

    The Opus team is a great one to join. The training programme is really guiding and continues after your 12-week programme. The incentives are also great and are available to those of us who aren't consultants. The location in Bristol is prime and just makes the atmosphere so much more enjoyable

    Cons

    The hours can be tough but it comes with the industry and parking can be a bit of a pain in a city centre.

    Pros

    My managers are very hands on, they constantly give me advice and praise me on a job well done. I've never received better motivation from my superiors.
    The office atmosphere is fantastic, you can tell from the second that you walk in that it's a great place to work. The atmosphere of an office makes all the difference to morale.
    The training scheme is also excellent, a lot of time and effort is put into the new members of staff, especially by the directors, which is a really nice change from some of my previous companies.
    My chair is absolutely amazing compared to previous offices, definitely the best part of the job.

    Cons

    It is a bit of a boys club, and I imagine some of the people who perform at a lower rate than the "top billers" would perhaps have a harder time keeping their morale high.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Opus have a great training scheme from day one and are such a great group to work with. Their new offices opening globally mean that you have the chance to grow internationally. Everyone is also really nice and enthusiastic about what they do. Hard work but lots of fun. Plus great incentives keep you motivated and feel rewarded for your hard work.

    Cons

    Working as individuals can feel a bit competitive but we also work as a team in other elements so not all bad.

    Pros

    Opus is one of the fastest growing recruitment companies in the UK. The ambition and drive of everyone in the company is one of the main reasons for its success. There are some of the best people I have ever worked with in the recruitment world and as a result the company culture is awesome. The rewards, incentives and all round career progression are fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone considering a career in recruitment.

    Cons

    If Hard work is a con - then put that in here. I personally believe that everyone works hard at Opus and works quite long hours, however they are rewarded well and with hard work comes success.

  6. Opus Recruitment Solutions are not all they are made out to me - avoid!

    Pros

    Opus Recruitment Solutions initially come across as being a professional set-up. Nice offices I suppose, and some decent colleagues.

    Cons

    When you discover what the real game is, it is shocking. Opus Recruitment Solutions' Management are severely lacking in ethics. They just want you to bring in the bling irrespective of how you treat employers or the calibre of staff you send to them. The Managing Director is hateful of clients and always criticising them.

    Advice to Management

    Opus Recruitment Solutions are all about money, money, money. The Managing Director, who is on an astronomical salary himself, is sarcastic and critical of staff, and the Management team don't like him but can't say so. He is dismissive of clients and mocks them behind their backs.

    Pros

    The commission scheme is excellent, the staff are all driven to succeed, we have fun. The CEO invests money and time to the benefit of the company and staff

    Cons

    Some may say long hours in recruitment are a negative, but if you want to make a success in recruitment its part of the job

    Advice to Management

    Keep involving every member of staff from the floor in company decisions, it's a big positive
