    Pros

    Great place to work
    Great Commissions
    Great office space
    Excellent Kitchen area
    Shower

    Cons

    I think the hiring policy needs to be looked at though. They employed people from overseas who stated that they were experienced recruiters - only to turn out and be horrible and very bad at their job - one guy, looked at his phone all day, created rumours, office politics - one girl left because of him - he was supposed to be a great construction recruiter, turned out to be a complete waste of space who lied to clients, fellow peers and also candidates!

    The owners probably give consultants too much rope and freedom and trust them too much to get on with their actual jobs!

    Advice to Management

    Hire better consultants - don't hire construction recruiters from overseas that will a waste of money, create childish office politics and lie. Keep the commission structure.

    Pros

    Support management team, highly visible and at arms length for support, Melbourne Cup party the best I've ever been to and I have been in this industry for 10 years! Collaborative environment nice team to work with!

    Cons

    Previous two mid level managers have NARCISSIST style attitude, they created a sense of power without providing much support. Senior management team quickly identified this and performance managed these individuals out.

    Advice to Management

    Bring people in who possess the right attitude rather than purely the experience.

    I worked at EDT Global full-time

    Pros

    On a Friday afternoon you felt you weren't being watched by management as they were in the pub. They would normally return around 5pm drunk to make sure all their staff were still in the office.

    Cons

    Awful management
    Cowboy directors
    they pretend to have offices in a lot of locations but have 1 office in Sydney and a new office in London - not what their website says!
    Will do anything to save money including not paying commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Close the business before you get closed down!

    Pros

    Good people to work with, good Christmas party, regular free drinks, new office and fruit basket. Commission structure is good.

    Cons

    This place will not develop you into a better consultant, unfortunately it may take you the other way. Low achieving environment, office politics, aggressive management that spends far to much time at the pub with low achievers or friends. When in the office they will happily make you feel very uncomfortable. More party than professional. Lack of resources and will except you to fund anything you require outside of their own database. Commission is good but you will not receive it unless client has paid on both perminant and contract. Their is a lack of strategy in their business model or lack their of. No company structure. Extremely high turnover in the last 12 months.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a style of management, either stay out or stay in and be more approachable. I wouldn't make your favourites so obvious, especially if others are archieiving a lot more them.

    I worked at EDT Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    plenty of free drinks, great parties, decent commission

    Cons

    under performing culture, no direction or leadership from management/owners who are normally in the pub and make irrational decisions with double standards, terrible office politics

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example or hire someone that will and then stay out of the office, do not take people that do not bill to the pub for the afternoon whilst others are working without any appreciation or recognition

    Pros

    Good Database, Melbourne Cup afternoon off.

    Cons

    This is a very arduous place to work with a toxic environment full of politics & is a haven for ‘low achievers’. There’s absolutely no strategic direction or leadership, as the owners spend too much time out of the office in the pub, celebrating non-existent success!!!!!
