    I worked at Progressive Recruitment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training programme for graduates and organic growth model which allows individuals to developer their careers at a quick pace

    Cons

    Brand name not got a great reputation on the market which can sometimes be a barrier to winning new customers

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the heavy KPI focus which can sometimes mean performing taks for the sake of it and upsetting potential customers/contacts

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of perks like incentives abroad to Vegas, Milan and Ibiza They encourage you to socialise after work A financially stable company An elite recruitment company which looks good on your CV Award winning training programme

    Cons

    Boiler room mentality 40-50 hour working weeks are common Very cut throat, u either sink or swim and your job security is under threat every month All management were successful consultants but don't all make good managers Your only as a good as your market Pay is lower than market rate, and the commission has been lowered since recession Tough interview process, can be 4 stages If you're a natural salesperson then its a great move and the rewards are huge, if you just need a job to pay bills then don't bother, the stress won't be worth the basic salary! Recruitment is not a sustainable job long term, except for the chosen few, even then, make your money and get out!

    Advice to Management

    Greed is not good!

    I worked at Progressive Recruitment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun employees to work with, full of energy. Good training.

    Cons

    50 - 60 hr weeks, very very low base pay. Some great managers, but some really really really bad ones. You will either succeed or be dropped like dead wood quickly. I was there one year and only a few were earning decent money, with promises of gold and deliverance of dirt and bullying as a culture.

    Advice to Management

    Control your dogs


  7. Probably the Worst Recruitment Company in the UK

    Pros

    If there was anything good to say, I would tell you. There isn't.

    Cons

    They always paid me late and they always underpaid, it was then the a fight over the telephone to get my money paid into my bank. They always had many excuses for the reason I was underpaid, but I was never overpaid - strange that...........

    Advice to Management
