I have been working at Huntress full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

difficult to find many; good initial training, good training manager

Cons

firstly the time with initial training is sporadic at best and alot of the good ideas given to you are impossible to implement with the jealous managers who want you to fit their mould. very much a hire and fire culture 6/8 people i started work with are not working there 4 months down the line. very much kpi driven no freedom to work things out for yourself. worst is the thresholds, have a vivid recollection of a consultant asking another what they would do with the bonus from the job they just 'banged up', the reply was nothing as they didn't reach the threshold. i saw this same consultant working passed half 8 for over a week to get to that placement and she had been working in the company for over a year. very simple if you have the desire to be in recruitment work in an up and coming company like the one I'm with now if you have been in both the difference is unbelievable, do your research and stay away from huntress.

Advice to Management

go on management courses or quit

    I have been working at Huntress full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Independent job, if you do it very very well.
    - Uni-style friday nights, with more suits.
    - Meet/talk to lots of new people.

    Cons

    - Money-orientated sales environment.
    - You're seen for the money you make, and micromanaged down to your daily stats.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the bigger picture of your employees, instead of picking at the pointless details, LISTEN to them.

    I have been working at Huntress full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company was formerly very entrepreneurial, however this spirit has been lost in recent months. The location of the office is superb.

    Cons

    Senior Management have recently left. Promises are rarely kept. A company that lacks clear direction and focus. e.g. two offices recently closing. the company rarely keeps its high achievers and often hires mediocre staff.

    Advice to Management

    honesty, more focus and direction, and consistency.
