    Pros

    Good communication from leadership to staff. Good colleagues and fun place to work. Very creative people in some parts of the business.

    Cons

    When I was there there were quite a lot of changes and this was a little unsettling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going whatever happens. Innovation is key and employees have some good ideas in this area.

  2. Great strategy, really energised people who have fun doing great things.

    Pros

    The energy in the business is really inspiring
    Senior Management take a pragmatic, longer term view to drive forward the company's vision
    Great people and a really fresh working environment - good benefits too.

    Cons

    Could do with a bit more structure and more efficient systems
    Some turnover in Client Services team has increased workloads, but that should be temporary

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but invest in systems to let people be more productive and spend more time delivering for clients instead having to hunt for information.

  3. An excellent culture and really passionate and fun team.

    Pros

    Great Workplace environment
    Excellent level of professional specialists
    Very open and transparent Management

    Cons

    Need to organise their processes more
    Need to sometimes contain their passion and prioritise
    Long hours for many people as a consequence to the above

    Pros

    None!.... The central London location is a smoke screen, a great way to sell to potential employees and also future clients. I presume just like the slave ships enticed the locals with a sense of adventure and excitement .

    Cons

    Where do I start ? Everything! top down & bottom up!

    Advice to Management

    Never again!

  7. Great buzz around the team.

    Pros

    Overall lovely people. Often given the chance to work on varied campaigns and with different clients. Always something going on and the opportunity to take part in exciting things.

    Cons

    Low salary compared to other recruitment agencies. No commission, but still given targets to meet. Other than that really nice place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it fun, reward the hard work a little bit more.

    Pros

    Great people, great teamwork, some of the best people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The in-joke was that TMP stood for Too Many People: it's a huge organisation, and it got difficult keeping track of who was who, and who you had a meeting with that day. I grew tired of explaining that by attending the constant "progress" meetings, I wasn't actually making any progress in my actual work at all.

    Advice to Management

    Less ticking boxes, and more letting people do their job!

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of vacation, bonus structure, majority of people are good, honest, smart folks, some good leadership, financial transparency. A good environment for someone who values money over virtue.

    Cons

    Leadership puts short-term profits over all else, including ethical behavior - both in dealing with employees and clients. At TMP, if it means hitting quarterly numbers, it sanctioned and encouraged - regardless of whether it is the right thing to do by the client, the employee or even the long-term viability of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Consider placing character, ethics and doing the right thing above quarterly profits, while it may not be completely intuitive, the way to win is to obsess over culture and producing real results for your clients rather than fixating on your next meeting with the bank.
