    Pros

    Friendly bunch of employees. Good location.

    Cons

    The owner has no real clue about how to drive business growth, create engagement or a pleasant place to work. The CEO at the time - some wide boy who thought he was all that. Micro-managed to within an inch of your life, long hours and would fire people like it was going out of business.

    Advice to Management

    Owner to be hands off. No involvement in the day to day operations. Put your senior leaders through training. Or maybe just cut your losses and close.

    I worked at Portland Resourcing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, they have brought on a diverse range of backgrounds and ethnicities to truely give the company diversity. Their training and committment to be the best was very good until the change in organisational structure sucked the life out of everyone. The only reason people stay is because of the high character individuals they employ.

    Cons

    Poor incentives and the owner treats people like tissues - use one and on with the next, even if you are performing highly. Sometimes, if you are doing well they will manage you out so they do not have to pay your commission. The hours and management are so rigid, it does not allow for any flexibilty what so ever. The micro management is at its most extreme with everything, and I mean everything, is monitored closely. The top management alienates people and causes conflict by having people choose sides. They also sell candidates and clients on having 6-8 offices, but can barely keep 1 (London) open.

    Advice to Management

    Stuck in 1996
