    Pros

    Hays is a great starting point in your carrer there are lots of high calibre individuals working within the organisation who have long service record. Thes people are excellent at bringing you into recruitment and showing you the ropes. You will make good money and progress quickly.

    Cons

    The stumbling block at Hays comes when you devlop as a consultant. There is no room for fresh ideas. The recruitment world is dynamic and ever changing this is not reflected in teh management of this global beast. Hays have been very sucessful for a long time sticking to the same old formula and they are reluctant to change. Recruitment at Hays is a numbers game, there is no time for quality. You either swallow the bitter pill and are indoctrinated to the process, if this is you you will be rewarded with a micro managemnent position until you hang around long enough to make director.

    Advice to Management

    Management at hays need to evolve. They need to genuinely embrace ideas and stop focusing on tired and tested methods and develop some new ideas relevant to the modern recruitment market.
