    I worked at REED full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Instant name recognition
    Lots of opportunities
    Company values are outstanding
    Variety of recruitment areas

    Cons

    Different "specialisms" compete with each other and reed.co.uk for business, and it can get really nasty
    Managers are so busy making sales figures that they don't manage staff properly
    Lip service paid to values, but not upheld in the company
    Outdated mentality about recruitment: call, call, call, etc

    Advice to Management

    The glut of agencies in the recruitment industry means that the "tried and true" methods don't work anymore. Reed has ceased to offer a "value add" to the recruitment process, especially when consultants are having to compete with deep discounts offered by reed.co.uk. Needs to be more united, and revisit how reed will fit into the new environment of recruitment.

    I have been working at REED full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing has changed since the last time I filled out this survey - great team environment, lovely supportive manager who cannot do enough for us all, always putting our needs before her own. I'm looking forward to the next financial year and looking forward to a high achievers trip to Edinburgh next Friday.

    Cons

    I have no negative comments to make
