    Pros

    Exciting, fast paced environment;
    Big growth during 2014;
    Lots of restructuring throughout this year which has given a lot more focus to vision and strategy of long-term vision although has also been unsettling for some areas;
    Big financial investment in a number of areas such as an amazing office move in London, technology and digital marketing.
    Communication in terms of what is going on within the business is good. Compensation is definitely in-line with market rates from within the online, digital, media sector although benefits could improve slightly.
    Lots of holidays and encouragement to have good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability exists within some departments and communication across departments can be poor.

    I have been working at Totaljobs Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly, approachable, respectful and fun environment to work in. The offices are incredible with panoramic views of London with great offerings in the subsidised canteen (£4 for large hot lunch!!! Great in London). Management are open to ideas, are transparent and recognise you for doing a great job. As a whole the company is moving very quickly and growing so it's an exciting place to work. Highly recommended!

    Cons

    None that I can think of so far in my employment.

    I worked at Totaljobs Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Holiday entitlement 29 days and you are able the buy or sell 3. If you are one of the lucky few that can over achieve target you can make some great commission. Fantastic team spirit. Some very talented sales, marketing, technical and creative employees

    Cons

    Projects being undertaken across the Company, with no clear structure or feedback as to there outcome leaving resources stretched. No clear definition of targets in some cases just suck it and see approach. Salaries are lower than market rate some by up to 10-15 on basic. Some management totally out of touch with market and team. No room for career progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to understand you teams and develop them not suppress them.

    Misinformation when recruited. Very cliquey laddish environment. An extreme focus on meetings.

    Pros

    Hours were good 9-5. A good central locaion. Near the British Museam if you just wanted to pop in for lunch to unwind.

    Cons

    An old decrepit work area.
    Very cliquey environment
    Very laddish environment. If you don't partake in that then your seen as a bit of a wierdo.
    No innovating fast enough.
    Too much emphasis on meetings.
    Too much praise of themselves without looking at what is happening around them.
    Too slow to innovate (look at their mobile site)
    Joined the company told there was a share save scheme (only to find out on joining that this was not the case)
    No health benefit
    No paid sick days until you pass probation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop congratulating your selves.
    Give your teams more freedom to do what you want.
    Make decisions faster (i.e. innovations is fast and risky but then the rewards are great)
    Get rid of cliquey middle management
    Think about giving people sick days in their first six months instead of treating them as some kind of pariahs; until they pass the probationary period

    A sinking ship under new leadership direction

    I worked at Totaljobs Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits probably one of the best when it comes to flexibility on holidays etc

    Relaxed atmosphere

    Cons

    Poor management. Very sales orientated. Meaning other departments will get neglected in terms of rewarding staff.

    I know politics is everywhere but this is by far the worst place to work in regards to politics. Management don't deal with issues that really hurt the business or teams by trying to understand the problems and rectify it and introducing so called new ideas without first identifying what the teams actually do for a living.

    Very upper echelon bullying tactics involved. You will get shunned if you are not a yes person to everything they say.

    Only like to hear what they want to hear. People lose their jobs and management can't even be bothered to let staff know this face to face and rely on others to relay this to direct subordinates. Very unprofessional.

    Unskilled people with lack of experience can be promoted to senior staff as long as management likes you meaning more politics involved.

    HR benchmarking is completely abysmal and under wrong categories as they don't understand what you do for a living nor do they care. Salary can be up to 10k less than industry average depending on what role you apply for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand you're teams. What they do first and discuss what potential changes are viable or not. They know the job better than yourself. That's what you hired them for. Trust their expertise and not expect them to nod at your every whim.

    Pros

    The company has great career opportunities with excellent benefits including 29 days holiday! The working day allows for an active social life and employees are extremely freindly

    Cons

    To be honest there isn't many downside to working for TJG, bar the fight to the tube station in the evening past all the tourist, it is a really good place to work!

    Pros

    People. People. People. You feel valued and placed in the best possible position to contribute to the max with enthusiasm and willingness to happily go the extra mile, with a smile on your face.

    Cons

    Not the highest payer in the market, but they make up for this through benefits (e.g. charity days, flexi holidays) .
