Pros

Great culture to work within that encourgaes teamwork and yet rewrads individual performance.

Cons

Not too many...I have worked at many companies and think it is better than the majority

Advice to Management

In current times it is tough to say excatly what is the right thing to do. It is easy to look at things in retrospect and say we could have done things better. I think all in all we have faired and behaved well during the crisis

    I have been working at Badenoch & Clark full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people who I count as close friends.
    The office is in a good location.
    The permanent commission scheme is excellent - as good as any you can find at other firms.
    The work-life balance is very good in comparison to the rest of the industry.

    Cons

    Base Salaries are 30% below industry average and the contract commission scheme is poor and impossible to understand.
    The senior leadership is severely lacking in talent and charisma and does very little other than budgeting and forecasting for the Adecco head office. The directors win zero business for the company and spend none of their time trying to recruit good junior consultants. They leave that to managers and the group internal recruitment function.
    There is no real incentive to build a career for the long term as there is no ambition to create proper wealth for anyone other than the Adecco owners (i.e. there is no IPO or MBO on the horizon and no chance to earn equity).
    A lot of good consultants and managers have left the company over the last four years so there are very few people to look up to and be inspired by.
    The business is generic and can offer no thought-leadership beyond what the individual consultants are capable of.
    There is a blame culture which starts at the very top of the business.
    Meetings.... meetings about meetings about meetings and nothing ever gets done.
    The technology infrastructure is ancient and useless and the compliance procedures make it almost impossible to quickly process a permanent placement - don't even bother trying to run a contract placement here.
    The central services are useless - you can never get any quick help from marketing or legal so it can take months to approve a PSL.

    Advice to Management

    Abandon any effort to grow into the commercial sectors and stick to profitable large public sector contract recruitment where you make loads of money and pay your consultants 9% commission on average.
