Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at Eames Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

Investing in systems such as phones and CRM Great culture for socials mingling Given the freedom to operate as you want- useful if you're already an expert

Cons

They put the wrong people into management positions- good billers don't always become good managers No clear progression path or consistant framework on how to opperate Many people have be wrongged... on thier comission. It's true they have a market leading comission structure but theres also a line in the contract to say "comission is completely discressionary" they will play with that as they see fit.

Advice to Management

Stop thinking you're above the individuals who make your business. All your big billers are good consultants who would do well anywhere. So when you start moving the goalposts on them and they leave..., what do you actually have left to offer?

Current Employee - Managing Consultant

I have been working at Oliver James Associates full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- International opportunities - Open lines of communication directly with CEO's (as a side note, they also know everyone's names and genuinely care about each employee, globally) - Great office... environment, inclusive atmosphere. - Exciting growth plans - new offices to open, promotions available at all levels. - Excellent training/L&D team! training is tailored to each individual not one size fits all. They genuinely invest in everyone's' development. - Strong branding and one of the best reputations in the market. - Extra long lunches for gym goers, happy hours on Friday, company trips (miami, cancun.....) sponsored team nights out, incentives throughout the year and quarterly lunch clubs! - One of the best commission structures in the industry.

Cons

Granted, recruitment isnt for everyone, its tough, you're dealing with a two way sales process and people making major life decisions and that's not always easy. That said, the only cons of working... here are the ones which are generic across the recruitment industry as a whole. Of course there are long hours and a little stress - this is a sales environment and you'd be hard pushed to avoid those things if you want to be successful in any highly competitive environment. To offset this, OJ push to keep moral high and the sales floor as energised and positive as possible - those claiming otherwise should perhaps try and be part of a solution rather than the perceived problem.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing and ignore the negative reviews. Keep investing investing in your people and developing your team leaders and mangers so they can continue to support and develop their... reports and ultimately keep smashing it, together! Our growth plans are exciting and the future is bright here at OJ and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
