    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay/ commission
    Good office banter

    Cons

    Terrible management- awful management style, unmotivating, unrealistic expectations.
    Hierachy between senior managers and other staff- "us and them" culture
    All KPI driven- care more about whether you're hitting your target than whether you're actually providing clients with a decent service.
    Tar each consultant (whether billing a lot or not) with the same brush
    Hire and fire culture
    Long hours
    Unappreciative of hard work
    Unflexible- time off sick is almost not allowed
    Too many office politics
    Staff are not valued at all, as soon as you're not hitting your targets your got rid of. I wasn't persoanlly but saw it happen to other people

    Advice to Management

    Motivate and value your staff more.
    Stop making employees work extensive hours
    Spend a week in consultants shoes and see how tough the job is before you implement targets.
