    Vibrant and fun - and a real insight!!!

    Recruitment Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI joined recently after having a rather bad experience in a competitor company. At Unviverse I was surprised how different the same job could actually be (for the better). Everyone helps out and although there is still a target driven mentality, you do not get the politics and machismo of a normal recruitment company. I think that's partly to do with their more "European" ethic.

    ConsIf you like are one of those people who wants a lager-and-curry-fly-me-to-Ibiza type recruitment company, then this is not for you. Sure, the money and incentives are great, but they do not have that loud, brash attitude of most recruitment companies. It is more professional and thus more "serious". Personally i prefer it, but it might dissuade some.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey recently introduced a range of new incentives and I think this is good. Please keep doing this and more group acitivities like the ones at the end of last year.

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

     

    Unprofessional recruitments

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNo pros noticed so far.

    ConsI was dealing several times with UTechnology recruiters regarding job offers they published with remark "asap". In all cases they were not able to clearly communicate neither the status of my application nor the final result each time giving me contradictory information so I got an impression there was either no real job behind their offer or they did not have the direct contact to the job offering company. Never again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake a training for your recruiters how to deal with customers in professional way. Improve their communication skills. Do not publish fake job offers.

    Great international experience in a dynamic environment

    Recruitment Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThis company has undergone quite a lot of changes recently. They have hired some great new management, installed the latest systems and embarked on a structured training program for all staff. They have also added several new business development methodologies to their work practices which seem to be working.

    It is a very international environment. Most European languages are spoken and most of their business is conducted in Europe. I would say that it is excellent international business experience to work here. They also encourage travel more than previously, and this makes the job more varied.

    Under their new regime there is a lot of support from managers and team leaders. This, coupled with an extremely large database (they have been established for 16 years I think), means that there is quite good scope for making serious money.

    They share data better than most sales organisations I've seen.

    ConsRecruitment is hard work, and the job here is no different. The rewards are good, but you need to work for them. You are also performance managed quite carefully. This can be helpful (indeed is designed to be) but you need to be ready for that.

    It seems that they had a previous management team who neglected some parts of the business, but the culprits have all left now, and the strategy seems far more robust. This actually makes it an exciting place to be as there is a lot of scope for development.

    Advice to Senior Management"Stick to your guns" would be my main piece of advice. So often you see people doing things right, making a real effort, and then they lose conviction. That has not happened in this case, and I hope that they keep it that way.

    Unprofessional recruitment agency

    Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) City of London, England (UK)

    Prosnothing !! simply nothing positive to say !

    ConsUnprofessional management
    they hired young and inexperienced people and they want them to bill after 3 weeks!!!
    they treat the employee who doesn't bill like crap in front of everybody!! you can not talk or pronounce the name of the competitor or see ex-employee. You don't seat comfortably the chair and the computer are so odd! Can not have a discussion with the management as you are always wrong...You have to do long hours !

    Advice to Senior Managementnothing everything you might say is WRONG !!!

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