Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook

I worked at Abika Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good office banter
Located near to lots of retail/food outlets and not far from the BR station
Have employed some experienced recruiters who have some good ideas
Actively encourage sharing of knowledge
About 50% of the management team leads from the front and knows their stuff

Cons

Lack of diversity within the team
Lack of defined career development / training options
About 50% of the management team is not very experienced in recruitment
Aggressive sales approach, not relationship focused
Static number of employees for a number of years despite growth plans
Convoluted commission structure - different structure for different people with no apparent logic
£10,000 monthly threshold (no commission paid out on first 10K of monthly billings) (!?)

Advice to Management

Consider developing closer client relationships and managing employees in a more transparent way
Consider revising threshold to attract even higher quality individuals into the business
