I worked at SThree full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Definitely a work, rest and play hard company. A meritocracy that rewards hard work with great treats like Friday beers, nights out & trips away.

Cons

Support services staff are not always treated with equity compared to those in front office ysales. Tend to put emphasis on costs over value. Lots of egos in management.

Advice to Management

Care more about your staff.

    I worked at SThree full-time

    Pros

    They seem to pick good and interesting staff ..

    Cons

    ..and then they treat them badly. Instead of valuing people, they are micro-managed and treated like children. Managers are cliquish with each other but would not associate with other staff in an honest manner. All the good people are trying to leave. Managers monopolise the best tasks and do not share them in order to develop their team.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as you would like to be treated.
    Notice people's hard work and give them credit for it.
    Don't persist in disregarding some and privileging others.

    I have been working at SThree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The offer you significant support and training in your first year
    It's a plc, and very successful - you will feel part of a huge corporate, that offers security and career growth
    Due to their size, they offer you significant resources - advertising budget, huge database, advanced CRM software
    Good earning potential, especially for graduates

    Cons

    For such a successful firm, the senior management are not good role models
    Very micro-managed sales processes, very KPI driven
    One size fits all approach (certainly in my office)
    Hyper competitive - one on one, teams, offices, brands. Very little team work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more creative where possible and set targets that are based on achievability.
