    Pros

    -Fantastic environment with people you end up considering family -Incredible career growth opportunities (very clearly defined benchmarks to reach promotions that come with both a title change and salary increase) -Fun rewards - when you hit specific targets there are a lot of celebrations! For example, if you are a top achiever you get to go on a quarterly trip to places like Las Vegas or Miami! -Supportive and... approachable leadership - I want to take the time to specifically mention the Managing Director in the Michael Page Boston Office - Sean Rogerson. Sean is an incredible leader and mentor who takes the time to get to know everyone in the office and make sure he is helping them grow and succeed. It is not often you come across a leader who does this so individually all while leading a fast-growing office of 60! -International opportunities to transfer offices further into your career

    Pros

    Working for Michael Page is like the corporate sales version of Navy SEAL training. This isn't a cushy 9-5 job, and you will be put in situations that consistently challenge you to make you a better communicator and a more effective business professional. If you have a positive mental attitude and are willing to put in the work, you will very quickly find yourself a wealthier, more professional, and vastly more... mature person than you were before you started. Many of the reviews here cite examples of harsh management critiques in 1-1 meetings - I can verify this true. It is by no means the rule, and generally speaking most 1-1s are oriented in the positive. Sometimes, however, the truth hurts. Having your Manager/Director look you in the eye and describe to you the ways in which you're being a pathetic business person is a bitter pill to swallow, but it will make you a better person if you have the spine to not take it personally (because it isn't personal). It's not for everyone, but at the same time it sets a high standard of excellence and is a big part of what sets Michael Page apart from every other agency out there. Another thing that MP does very well is reward successful employees with opportunities for career advancement into management positions. If you prefer not to be a manager, but you're a successful and reliable biller, you will be rewarded with flexible hours and work from home opportunities. If you're slower to learn but make up for it with work ethic, you will be encouraged and given plenty of time to grow and develop. If you demonstrate a willingness to work hard, your managers and surrounding teammates will go out of their way to help you get up to speed as quickly as possible. If you possess the intangible characteristics of a successful person (concentrated work ethic, determination, positive attitude, self-motivated), management will bend over backwards to give you opportunities to succeed. All in all, if you're a hungry and motivated person who is looking to get into the upper echelon of the sales profession, this is your opportunity to learn from the best and make it happen.

    Cons

    No control of your quarterly bonus. It's completely discretionary and is up to management on the final # you get each quarter. Sometimes it works in your favor (you work super hard, management notices, and they give you a bigger chunk to reward your contribution), and sometimes it doesn't (you give an average performance, management notices, and maybe they give you a smaller chunk to see how committed to the company... you are). There's not much else to say, its how it has always been and it's likely how it will always be. That said, with clear communication with your manager (and performance to back it up) you can still make a whopping amount of money. And you'll have the opportunity to work with some of the sharpest, funniest, and most beautiful and enjoyable people you're likely to meet in LA (with a sick view of DTLA from the upper floors of Fox Plaza). The only other con in my experience is the CRM system, ADAPT, which is used to track candidate/client processes. It is arguably the most poorly designed CRM for recruiters ever created. Using ADAPT for recruitment is like driving your parents stick shift minivan that has no power steering, no A/C, and windows/locks that you have to roll down manually. You'd think that a company with the vast global resources that MP has would be able to provide a better experience for their consultants in this regard.

    Advice to Management

    For the love of all that is good in this world, get rid of ADAPT. The fact that the (arguably) most prestigious and well-respected global recruitment firm in the world uses the worst CRM in existence is baffling and, frankly, a bit of a disgrace. Get with the times and give your consultants a REAL competitive advantage in the market by implementing a system that was designed for recruitment and makes the job as... streamlined and efficient as possible. Be more conscientious of making sure that if promotions are celebrated, everyone receives the same level of attention/celebration. Keep making efforts to reduce office drama and increase the overall maturity level of the office. Keep being flexible/creative in trying to keep/motivate good people. Don't sacrifice the integrity of the office culture simply to increase headcount.
