Neutral Outlook

I worked at Penta Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good incentives, good training, fair commission structure

Cons

Commission structure changed too often, office politics, micro-management

Advice to Management

The culture can be very clicky and I saw a lot of banter that was taken too far, becoming more like bullying. You have to have rhino skin to get to the top of the tree in recruitment but turning a blind eye to that sort behaviour won't do a lot of good in the long-run. Overall a good company to work for and perhaps learn the ropes from but if you are not one of the "favourites", you will probably excel and reach your full potential elsewhere...

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Penta Consulting part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Als juf is het leuk om met kinderen te werken. Altijd een Creatieve manier te vinden om ze te leren.

    Cons

    Er zijn weinig vooruitzichten om door te groeien. Met steeds grotere klassen is het best zwaar werk.

    Advice to Management

    Zorg dat het onderwijs een leuke job blijft. Uitdaging moet wel blijven bestaan maar niet te zwaar.
