Pros

Lorien is a brilliant place to start your career off in recruitment because they offer an excellent training programme on technologies and recruitment best practise. I was lucky to have a very supportive manager / director who allowed me to take time off when my mother had cancer.
*Family environment where everyone will try and help you out instead of stab you in your back compared to other agencies .

Cons

*It normal takes about for three years to get promoted from Resourcer to Account Manager on the corporate account side depending on your manager.
*Commission for resourcers on the corporate account side is poor compared to other companies .

Advice to Management

You need a clear and Enhanced career path for your employees.

    I have been working at Lorien full-time

    Pros

    Very happy here and as someone that has experienced other recruitment company environments, I can honestly say it is the best one I've worked for. Supportive and approachable management team, great friendly culture and good employee recognition schemes. Even though recruitment companies are KPI driven by their nature, Lorien manages this is in a fair and supportive way and is far away from the "hire and fire" cultures of some of their competitors.

    Cons

    More bureaucratic since acquisition by the parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Portable IT for employees would give more flexibility for working outside the office.
