    Interesting experience. Friendly culture.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI particularly love the office culture. I am in a very friendly and efficient team. Colleagues from other teams are approachable. My mentors never fails to motivate me. She pointed out my weakness and allowed me to improve; on the job training is great. An eye-opener experience.

    ConsSales-based therefore, might be rather stressful if you could not hit the target. I guess job fit is really very important here. I have seen people who can't seems to fit into the culture and stress just doubled up for them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDid not stay that long to get insight onto this.

    Wonderful team culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosstrong and efficient team culture that makes work interesting and fulfilling. Professional consultants who never fail to deliver. Good place tp stay and progress in your career. It is not difficult to find staff who are more than 5 years in the job and still enjoying coming to work everyday.

    Conshigh turnover in the newer hires who lack persistency and commitment. always thinking that the grass is greener elsewhere. not a place for people who simply cannot integrate work with life.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible.. Where do I even start?

    Human Resources Consultant (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros- Decent pay & commission
    - Good location

    Cons- Forces you to lie about jobs. You'll be posting ads about banking/white-collar jobs, but eventually have to talk your way to make candidates take up flyer distribution/sales job.
    - Ridiculous quotas, even if met, will be forced to do more and more and more
    - Treat candidates like a commodity, don't care about their interest, just care about sales target
    - Head boss loves to overstep the professional relationship boundary with ladies. Will cheekily ask you out for lunch dates. If you do not suck up to him, forget about any promotions
    - 3 people share one computer and one e-mail address
    - Very hierarchical. You take a cut of your intern's pay, your Director takes a cut of your pay, then the owner takes a cut of your pay. Leaving the actual candidate with almost 40% of his pay gone
    - Expect you to stay in office till late. If you even dare to step out of the office before 6pm it's GG for you the next day, the bitching will begin
    - The environment is so political. It's straight out from the set of Mean Girls. Everyone is bitching and stealing candidates from one another and when confronted about it, will plaster on a fake smile denying any involvement
    - Weekly meetings with the director are like throwing two lions into a pit. Director will play one person off another
    - Nearly once a month will have team bonding events which further shows how hypocritical the environment is. No one actually likes one another.

    I strongly advise against joining this company, especially the Ngee Ann City outlet. If you have any semblance of morality, you'll find this job hell. I joined HR because I wanted to help people get jobs they like and interact with candidates, but instead was told to lie about the job scope, pay and even company to get them down for an interview. Even if you argue that this is the real world, people should accept this highly unethical work environment. Sickening.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy the best business consultancy firm out there and ask them to help restructure your ENTIRE company. Alternative, wind up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
