What is paid time off like at PageGroup?

Pros

- Very strong base pay (Best in the industry) - Top of the line training - Top of the line technology infrastructure - Transparent leadership - Strong total compensation - Top performers are extremely well looked after - A lot of time off, not just PTO but lot's of random days given aside from that. We were given a solid 4-5 Friday's off since I joined in the last year, along with the the whole week between Xmas and New Years. With Holidays, PTO, Sick days, and the aforementioned, there's was a solid 45 days PTO in 2021 - Very realistic targets and clear commission/bonus requirements - Can easily be touching 100k total comp after one year if you perform decently well. The highest performers make 2-3x that.

Cons

- The cons at MP are the same cons as any organisation that is heavily focused on Sales and revenue generation. The pressure can be high but it's not even remotely close to other recruitment firms. - If you're not bonusing you could probably make more money somewhere else with less stress. That said, if you're not bonusing in a firm like Michael Page, with all the resources you have at your disposal, than recruitment consultancy probably isn't the career for you. - There is a lot of turnover, but that is the case in basically every single recruitment firm around. It's something you learn to deal with, this is just how sales focused firms work. - Commission rates are, on the surface, a decent bit lower than other firms. That said, it is far easier to generate revenue in a firm like MP than in other high commission rip shops. They also on average probably base a solid 25-35% higher on the base salary so it evens out.

Advice to Management

I would recommend to look at tweaking the commission rates a touch higher, it's a very competitive industry and I think as times go on top performers will continue to get tempted away by tech/finance firms to do internal recruitment, or leave to take senior gigs in other rec firms if they're more open to risk. I think even a modest tweak to the comm rates would improve retention by a noticeable amount. Aside from that, the firm is certainly headed in the right direction, have come leaps and bound around their tech stack and have invested heavily in bringing in more senior hires to help build around as opposed to the Grad model, which I think is showing dividends. The culture is strong and the firm has become much more flexible since Covid. Overall, keep doing what you're doing.

A lot of time off, not just PTO but lot's of random days given aside from that.
