    I worked at Anson McCade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You're given plenty of training and guidance throughout. Not your typical sales floor with high pressure and hard targets, much more of a consultative approach. Building relationships with candidates and clients is encouraged, rather than quick wins. Great sociable team, everyone goes out together at least once a week with regular social activities planned.

    Cons

    You have to be proactive enough to ask for help. The more questions you ask, the better you'll do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but look to keep adding more benefits in order to stay competitive.

    I worked at Anson McCade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started my recruitment career at Anson McCade and the foundations I developed I still use to this day. You get taught how to HEADHUNT properly and not just rely on InMailing through LinkedIn - this now seems to be classed as headhunting!
    The training offered was fantastic, I can say this now that I've been in the industry for nearly 6 years, and you're supported by all the senior recruiters and above.
    A portfolio is available from day one, which is hard to come by and makes it slightly easier to hire the best talent in the market.
    Great culture and I have some very fond memories and good friends.

    Cons

    Flexible working is very hard to accommodate

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but in a modern age also look at additional benefits and work-life-balance.

    I have been working at Anson McCade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A typical day can be as varied as you make it because there's no firm rules in place. There isn't any micromanagement but team leaders are always on hand to give you training and mentoring when you need it. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the social aspect really sets this company apart. Everyone gets along with no office politics or obvious hierarchy - management strike a great balance between being a friend and professional when needed.

    Cons

    Relaxed environment means you won’t succeed without self motivation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding more benefits and running competitions - great for morale

    I have been working at Anson McCade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is unlike most other recruitment and sales companies. There are targets in place but they’re both realistic and not heavily enforced. As long as you’re working hard, it’s not all about numbers.

    Great social side, everyone goes out together – managers included – and people really do get along.

    Cons

    As with any sales job, long hours which you have to be prepared for if you want to make a decent amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    Look to introduce more benefits but otherwise, keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Amazing atmosphere. Not corporate by any means and everyone is up for a laugh - managers included.
    If you show that you're willing to put the effort in, they put lots of effort into helping you achieve.
    Commission structure is really competitive - no thresholds that were in place at every other company I interviewed at so you can earn money from the offset.
    No heavy targets and you're not just a number here.

    Cons

    If you're not motivated which can be tough if you've had hard luck, you won't do well and when you're not doing well, you won't make money.

    Pros

    Great commission structure with no thresholds or caps.
    Genuine boss- fair and honest.
    Laid back work-atmosphere.
    Cash prizes

    Cons

    If you are happy earning just your base salary its a pointless place to work. You must be willing to meet your targets in order to make serious cash.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of unmotivated employees.

    I worked at Anson McCade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training is given for new graduates and good opportunities exist to earn commission from day one. The team leaders also give help and support and getting involved in social activities is encouraged. There is a difference between Recruitment & Sales and this is not a hardcore sales environment (although of course you will have targets to hit)

    Cons

    Long hours - Just because you have exceeded your targets , doesn't mean you can go home early!
    Commission Structure - While you wont be sacked straight away for missing targets, expect your % commission on deals to fall away quickly. It can then be difficult to justify staying.
