    I worked at Forsyth Barnes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing, Free tea maybe

    Cons

    The culture at FB is absolutely toxic. Yu are being watched every single minute, from the time you arrive to the time you leave. for example, you are expected to arrive to work on time 8:30am (Of course longer than average companies), however, if you arrive at 8:31am expect a little chat with your line manager... on the other hand if you stay for longer hours there is no acknowledgement. The company discriminates... mothers and does not considers or promotes flexible working. The pay is under market rate however the company promote incentives “hitting the target” which requires you to work 14 hours a day. They have a dedicated so called “HR/ops staff members “to ensure glass door reviews are “on point” and regular emails goes out to force employees to complete good reviews

    Pros

    Massive focus on developing staff and promoting from within, this is very encouraging especially when I joined with no previous recruitment experience. Great company culture whilst always being a positive atmosphere in the office

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    From day one, i realised this was a business led by genuine people who had my personal best interests at heart. Yes they demand a lot of me, but that's to try and bring the best out of me, and so I fulfil my ambitions. The constant drive to push yourself is demonstrated by the way Roheel and Scott push themselves, and this filters down through the business. Because I've built up that trust and respect, if ever I've... had any personal issues, they've been the first to offer help or to listen to me. In our own quirky way, we're all a big family supporting each other and pushing each other to do well. This with the structured training plan I was given means I've been constantly learning over this last year, and am constantly progressing.

    Cons

    The initial expectations can see high, but that's because I was completely new to recruitment. Things didn't necessarily get easier, but I got better so this became more manageable.

    Advice to Management

    I love the fact the managers are so down to earth, please don't lose this.
