    I have been working at Investigo full-time

    Pros

    - Professional, ambitious, positive culture and working environment
    - Rapidly improving structure for new joiners and junior members of staff
    - Potential to rise through the ranks rapidly
    - Good commission scheme
    - Great company trips and events, both for high achievers and all staff

    Cons

    - Progression options although can be rapid, are limited for a lot of people

    Advice to Management

    - Commission scheme although excellent overall doesn't improve past a certain point so an average performer is compensated proportionally the same as someone in the top quartile or decile
    - Introduce further achievement milestones

    Pros

    After 14 years in recruitment, I have finally found a platform and brand that I am proud to represent. Honest, direct talking senior management and a clear vision and understanding of own brand, investigo have created a culture of accountability and honesty. The growth strategy not only encourages internal talent but recognises the need to hire externally should a division or team need to upskill. I was fortunate to find a business and division that have welcomed an honest and hands on approach which is now seeing success thanks to the team in place and CEO/ED encouragement.

    The business simply wants you to do well and provides ample support for those with the right attitude. Those who don't? This isn't the place for you.... we want positivity, encourage growth and ambition. With a fantastic balance of experience versus trainees, the business has a breadth of experience and knowledge as well as a strategy for future talent. Ever increasing focus is being placed on training using external support as well as our own talent. Impressive billings for top performers and one of the very best commission structures and a fabulous list of clients to leverage..... a serious consideration for anyone who both love the job and want a platform (without setting up on your own!) to earn some serious money and work with a fabulous group of people.... love it.... reading the above?? Why on earth wouldn't you join.

    Cons

    Very few .....struggling to think

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, continue the work and maintain the energy whilst growing the business! Continue to be transparent and having the Directors lead from the front .....
