    I worked at Clinical Professionals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good marketing. If you look at the company info it makes good impression and you may think this is a quality business... but that's where it ends.

    Cons

    - No training
    - Unprofessional management, bullying of employees and very bad work environment
    - "Zero-level" know how. They do not have a clue about recruitment in Europe and when I worked there hardly anyone was making sales. I really wondered at times where their profit was coming from... and if all these growth figures they quote as 'official' have anything to do with reality.
    - Long working hours with poor remuneration

    Advice to Management

    What kind of adice can you give to people who act unprofessionally and do not understand the business they work in? Try to find another job...?

    I worked at Clinical Professionals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some good, level-headed individuals that worked there.

    Cons

    The commission structure is terrible - not motivating at all and only paid out quarterly. There was no support from seniors - Sink or swim mentality. The KPI's were unrealistic in today's market; there was no strategy or focus which made doing good business very difficult. If you want to work long hours and be treated like a machine, there are definitely other agencies where you can do that and make more money. Immature and unprofessional behaviour from upper management.
    The London office had very poor facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Consider what client's really want: e.g. sending 10 unsolicited CV's a day to a client is more of a hindrance than an effective business strategy. Also, treating your employees with respect and encouraging them goes a LOT further than kicking them when they're down. Favouritism is incredibly outdated and immature.

    Pros

    Management is clever sometimes, specifically when it comes to writing good reviews of themselves here. It's a pity it doesn't go beyond this page...

    Cons

    Unprofessional, rude and ignorant liars.... is this the company you want to work for?
    You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing reviews for yourselves here and get a decent job!

    Pros

    There is actually no pros apart from the breakfast which is the same every week. Good luck to whoever can survive in that company.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, childish and no structure. Commission structure is terrible, no room for progression and management is an utter joke. If you want to waste your time go work for CP.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as people and listen to what they have to say.

    Cons

    -Manipulative and misleading 'career paths'
    -Huge favouritism

    -Incredibly moody senior management
    -Shoddy training
    -Huge turnover
    -Told that you 'owe' them for the opportunity they have 'given' you
    -Personal life is used to try and manipulate your decisions
    -Bully culture
    -Blame culture
    -Poor communication internally
    -Secretive internal communication
    -Scare tactics used to younger and inexperienced staff
    -Terrible inefficient legal team
    - Bad out dated contracts
    - A black hole of doom

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how you treat people who work hard for not only their salary, but sometimes recognition from their peers. Not everyone works for the money that you are so adamant they each get up for in the morning. Where are these ethics you are so sure you base the running of your company on?!

    Pros

    •Great culture and great people to work with, will make some good friends!
    •Not KPI driven
    •Known within the industry and has good relationships with companies
    •Recognised and awarded for achievements
    •Strong work/life balance 08:30am-5pm

    •Management could give more direction, invest more time in you to progress
    •Clearer career progression
    •Commission structure as a consultant. Resourcer commission is standard.

    Advice to Management

    CP is an ideal company for first time recruiters and even experienced ones. Only suggestion would be to improve commission structure for consultants and make a clearer career path.
    Positive experience from my time here!

    I have been working at Clinical Professionals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since starting at Clinical Professionals it was quickly established this was a company I knew I wanted to stay. The support you receive from your managers, MDs and peers is second to none and there's no problem they're not happy to help you with. I enjoy coming in to work and leave feeling like I have achieved something great every day looking forward to the next. No achievement (little or large) goes un noticed and there's always encouragement and acknowledgement from my manager :-) the commission structure is great and I like working for a recruiter where the candidate is valued just as much (if not more) as the client.

    Cons

    I have none, I love my work, the people I work with and the fact that everyday no matter what problems may occur I leave feeling like I am fulfilling my potential.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work :-)

    Pros

    I love working at CP, the people are great and the brand is well know and respected within the industry, I have been promoted twice in my time here and the support and training I got from day one was excellent.

    Cons

    Travelling to Central London every day (I used to work locally to home) however its worth it and the recently introduced flexible working hours have made this much more manageable....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Clinical Professionals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things about working at CP was the culture. The London office was a relaxed sales environment and there was a lot of banter between colleagues. Furthermore I had good training from my manager who struck the balance perfectly on being your leader as well as a friend.

    Cons

    There wasn't many disadvantages of working at CP, apart from the CRM system which I believe needs improving.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the what the staff want and I'm sure the company can develop and grow.
