    Former Employee - Recruiter in New York, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Phaidon International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people are tolerable

    Cons

    Awful hours that they justify by saying it is "work hard, play hard". Churn and burn environment that does not care about your career, only their bottom line. They do not even pay minimum wage as it is being raised in NYC until the last second so they won't be fined/sued. Agency recruiting can be great- just not here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop removing negative reviews off your Glassdoor page.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Phaidon International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Immediate exposure to key clients and candidates. I get to work with some of the most prestigious banks and financial firms in the world interacting with typically VP or director level and above. Work environment is amazing - free coffee, breakfast options multiple times a week, beverages during the week and beer/wine on Fridays. Several sales incentives going on and the team participates in Philanthropic events... at least once every 2 months.

    Cons

    Work can be difficult. Since it’s a longer sales cycle you don’t get your first yes 1 week into the position. With persistence and targeted effort you’re able to overcome this hurdle. No options to work remote until more senior in company (about 2 years of tenure)

    Advice to Management

    Keep making yourself available. Love the hands on training and appreciate you sharing your vision.
