Pros

Great atmosphere, strong ethical values, high rewards for success, consultancy environment gives a variety of opportunities to learn and develop

    Pros

    The opportunity to move globally after working for the company for 2 years - movement - progression into other roles. I like the company.

    Cons

    salary is not at a level I would expect given the nature of the work - the commission could be higher. The working hours are too long.

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to build a long term career with high quality classroom based and on the job training. Strong brand, database and back office systems further help equip you to run a successful business. Global company so plenty of opportunities to travel; that said a strong network of local offices with local employees a major part of business. A lot of long term staff - both consulting and management - with a strong supportive culture.

    Cons

    If you want to be very successful then you have to put in the effort - but is that not true of every career!

    Advice to Management

    Need to be agile to take advantage of new opportunities.
