      Pros

      There is no pros to working at this company.

      Cons

      + Worst reputation amount consultants in Dubai. You only have to ask around a few people and you will hear the exact same comments. + Most senior consultants have now left to join Hays, Salt, Michael Page. + They act like its a really tough process and elite interview stages, but really its all fake to try buy you into the company. + Only hire expats coming out to Dubai as they can't hire staff on the ground as they have such a bad rep. + Micro Management with 0 managerial exp + Staff eat lunch at their desk and don't socialise + Only 8 staff in Duabi office but come across like they are a huge outfit. FALSE

      Charterhouse Partnership Response

      Managing Director

      Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I understand that Charterhouse is not the perfect fit for everyone which is why we make every effort during the interview process and multiple rounds/interactions with different people within the business to be very transparent about what we offer, our values and also expectation for the role, so you are right we do have lengthy process. I believe that for someone to say that everything is completely negative and there is not a single positive about their experience is hard to believe. This review proves that the objective is to discredit the business and brand as there are quite a number of false statements in your Cons, we have no staff members that work in the Dubai office that are have moved to Hays or Salt, we have had one consultant that moved to Michael Page. Charterhouse has a diverse workforce representing many different nationalities, races and gender, we pride ourselves on diversity, perhaps you need to visit our Linkedin page for staff diversity and headcount. The people who do well with CHME are the ones who are self-motivated, want to work somewhere they can develop their career but most importantly people who have a team approach. If you look at our staff on LinkedIn you will see that we have an incredible team who have been with the business for a number of years and in that time have grown with the business and have been rewarded for all their hard work and commitment, alongside newer members which have excellent experience and have proved to be amazing additions to the business.

      Hard to find anybody who has left say a good thing about the company. Better options elsewhere

      Pros

      - Decent social scene when you start and don't know anything about Sydney - Has some genuinely great recruiters and people, although most have not left or are actively looking. Easy to make friends and often you remain friends in spite of CH. - You can make some decent $, although this is a pro for any recruitment company not just CH

      Cons

      - Morale of the office - Super negative. - Turnover of staff - Had 25+ people leave in the last year including 3 Directors and most not down to COVID. Not many see CH as somewhere to stay for their whole career. - Lack of useful support when establishing yourself due to Directors having little to none current market knowledge or relationships. - No exclusive clients or relationships so no real benefit of the brand, can often hinder when starting out - No useful and productive interaction between global offices - Unjust and obvious favouritism - Awful with Visas - Hard to be trusted - Staff still being paid 60% of their salary even though the company is making money (and many staff have left)

      Great place to work in the UAE

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Very supportive MD and HR, especially throughout Covid-19 they were on hand day/night to support the team, provide reassurance and very transparent throughout which was appreciated ! - Given freedom to run desk as if it’s own business, doesn’t work for some people but personally I much prefer it to being micro managed. If I need support with anything then the whole team and leadership are always very approachable and happy to offer advice. - There have been some great incentives up for grabs throughout my time with the business. - Very credible brand in the region and experienced team. - Great location

      Cons

      - Parking has been a problem in the past at times as there are a limited number of passes for the building so can just mean having to pay and park a little further. - Recruitment in the region can be really tough even with the strong brand reputation you have to be resilient and willing to put the work in to do well.

      Supportive Leadership

      Oct 12, 2020 - Consultant in Dubai
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The business and MD have been very supportive of my goals and career development. The support and transparent communication from the MD through a very difficult and challenging year has been exceptional. I feel extremely fortunate to work for a company that remains committed and supportive to their staff and continues to promote those who have earned it, despite the market conditions.

      Cons

      It is a sales environment, high pressure. Things aren’t handed to you, you have to work hard to see results.
