    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time (More than a year)


    Brand name looks good on CV. Charasmatic CEO and European MD. Recognisable brand name, especially in leadership.


    - No training whatsoever. - Clear favourtism of staff members by directors and senior staff - Junior staff are either groomed for success if their face fits, or left to rot then turfed out at the earliest possible opportunity. - Systems crash leaving staff unable to work at least one day a week. - No Direction from senior staff. - (some) Regional managers sit and watch youtube instead of billing and contributing to the office. - People who handed in resignations were refered to as 'judas'. - No verticles at all - everybody scraping around for roles and candidates. - Database is a MINIMUM 5 years out of date. - High staff turnover. - Very low staff worth. - Director's is a 'friend's club' - people are promoted on the basis of how much the management team like them and time served rather than ability. - Very slow salaries. - Resourcers and junior consultants are exploited by senior staff as a way to get the senior staff more commission whilst rewarding the resourcers or junior consultants with next-to-nothing. - Regional Directors unable to answer any questions or make any decisions without consulting their boss. - Commission not paid when staff leave the company. - No Market Intelligence is collected. - Very poor work / life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Companies are not run as boys clubs. Directors should be there based on ability, not who they know. There's a difference between 'on the job training' and 'we actually have no training to offer'. Albert Ellis - you need to get an idea of what is actually happening in your business instead of relying on what you're told. Start treating your staff as though they are worth something, not with the attitude of 'get them in for 6 months, give no training and if it doesn't work out then there's 10 other candidates waiting to take their place'.
