    Pros

    Meritocracy, strong executive & Director-level leadership & strategy, great training, awesome incentives, cool office, great systems & the company is not afraid to invest in tech or marketing/events/travel etc - something an experienced recruiter from a smaller company will love. High growth potential. Started here three years ago & my life has changed remarkably from the hard work I put in that resulted in money in...

    Cons

    weaker middle management due to high performing sales people being promoted to management positions almost automatically. Micromanagement on KPIs & shifting strategy at mid-level, not a ton of autonomy for most people.

    Advice to Management

    Not every great sales person makes a great manager, and some mediocre sales people may make fantastic managers. Don't be afraid to hire a few outside people with ~5+ years experience.

    I worked at Computer Futures Solutions

    Pros

    Great training, great people. A great place to learn your trade and really try to push you to do well.

    Cons

    Micromanagement I had an amazing manager when i first started in the team. Things where going fantastically until one of the business managers from another office returned from a sabbatical. He is power mad. Dont get me wrong hes a fantastic recruiter and deserves to be in the position he is in, but he does not know how to get the best out of people. Great socially but in work hes just a nightmare. Constantly questioning...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect, it's not about the dark art of recruitment anymore. It needs to be more service driven. Micromanagement has to stop.

    I have been working at Computer Futures Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Usually a great atmosphere - work life balance is improving - good commission structure - great training - nice location - amazing people - improving systems internally - they are investing in Dublin - you can make good money - great incentives

    Cons

    - too many managers - classroom mentality - naturally high pressured (to be expected) - if you are not prepared to lick up to your manager this will limit your progression - high churn - very regimented - lazy management (seem to train bosses as opposed to leaders - not inspirational) and they also delegate rather than lead from the front - their PowerPoint presentations are tastefully done and very easy on the eyes....

    Advice to Management

    (There are way to many managers) Apart from Mark Kelly who is the glue holding the office together, managers have too much time on their hands. They spend their time just sending e-mails and pointing out what everybody isn't doing rather than focusing on the positives. Negativity creates more negativity and will be the downfall of the entire office. Advice to managers; get back on tools and start billing - your e-mails/power...

    Good commission, clear progression, great training, good atmosphere

    Cons

    When you start you have to work long hours, and the pressure of the job means you are stressed quite a lot. It's a hard job, with a lot of ups and downs.
