    Pros

    Good location in the heart of Newcastle.
    Young culture so people tend to socialise.
    Potential to make money in certain situations.

    Cons

    Micromanagement - it is absolutely ridiculous and getting to the point where it is unbearable to come to work.

    Laughable base salary - ask anyone who works there for more info!

    Inconsistent management - depends how your month is going. They love you if you do loads of placements but can't be bothered with you if you aren't billing.

    Culture in general - never going to change.

    Working hours - laughable.

    Poor training scheme - a few weeks consisting of reading PowerPoint.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter what advice I, or anyone else who works here, gives to management as they simply never listen.

    The fact is that you can usually tell what it is like to work for a company when you speak to the people who have been there longer than 5 minutes. When you do that at FRG you quickly realise that the place is a joke. I personally know of at least 5 people at Team Leader and Manager level who have actively been interviewing and the number of consultants looking to leave is insane.

    They recently sacked over 20 people on the same day and many of whom were colleagues of mine and also people from the UK and German teams. They were sacked with 5 minutes notice and basically told to get out of the office - hardly the way to treat people who have worked 60+ hour weeks for basically the equivalent of minimum wage?

    I will get a response to this review talking about the 3.30pm finishes (which have now stopped by the way!) and the fact the commission is uncapped! But here's some advice to management... uncapped commission is only really relevant to people who are doing deals on a regular basis! People like myself who get by on a deal or two per month rely on a basic salary to pay the bills and pay for the suits you make us wear! Ask anyone in Newcastle and they will tell you that the base salaries are laughable but management literally doesn't care!

    This company never learns.
