    I worked at Brook Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at BS Social Care full-time back in 2010.
    - Great atmosphere all around, some smart people to work with and a very positive and welcoming environment initially.
    - You get trained for a few weeks, and then continually have in-house training sessions to help you grow and understand the market and the position eventually.
    - Regional & National competitions that had reasonable cash rewards.
    - Constant communication with colleagues from other branches.
    - Recognition from everyone for your achievements.

    Cons

    - Not keeping up with the ever changing market. Stuck in the dark ages of recruitment.
    - Expected to start at 7-7.30am in the morning and sometimes finish at 5-6pm, if you leave earlier, you are made out to be average or lacking commitment.
    - Bad practices by some management, sometimes placing clients at risk without their knowledge, such as sending unqualified staff to clients for qualified roles!
    - One member of senior management at the time I was there was intimidating and forced resignations to make it seem that trainees could not 'hack it'.
    - Talked down to by some members of management, not inspiring at all.
    - Discretionary bonus scheme, for Temps Consultants - an absolutely APPALLING practice.
    - Attrition rates are ridiculous, with some staff resigning at 3-6 month barrier.

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure your senior management are inspirational; not neurotic power hungry egomaniacs!

    I worked at Brook Street full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people in branches and some good divisional managers who look after their teams .

    Cons

    Poor leadership, little innovation, poor salaries at branch level, no succession planning, like many high street agencies service treated as a numbers game so number of calls more important than quality. Candidate experience can be very poor
