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

    Pros

    Super friendly and welcoming company. The management team is great - if someone is struggling the director is very quick to help and find a solution for them to succeed further in their career.

    Cons

    Limited parking spaces in the car park

    I have been working at Excelerate full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for a few organisations but have never felt so welcomed and valued as I do at Excelerate. The training for new starters is second to none and the Director takes his time to understand how you learn and how to get the best results from you. As colleagues, we work together as a team offering advice and support to each other.
    Staff are rewarded with quarterly nights out once targets have been met.
    The location for the office is great with plenty of free parking.

    Cons

    The office equipment is a bit out-dated although improvements have been started in recent weeks with a new breakout area and meeting room.

    I have been working at Excelerate full-time

    Pros

    A positive and supportive environment as you would expect from a professional consultative company. The company ethos is 'Results... and the manner in which we achieve them.' This approach is fundamental not only to how we engage with our clients but also a core foundation in how we work as a team and the culture that thrives at Excelerate. Certainly not the norm in the recruitment industry and not a gong, bell or cow horn in sight. Very refreshing.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of ...

    I worked at Excelerate full-time

    Pros

    Decent client base. decent longevity.

    Cons

    I have to agree with the review posted on the 8th September 2015, I think the assessment of the two owners is entirely accurate. The most recent review of September 15th 2017 is clearly written by the sycophant? Who else would use a phrase like, "we stand behind you??" Laughable. Would of got a pat on the head from the narcissist for that!! keep well away!

    Pros

    Company got some good longevity, and a decent client base.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the owners are a Narcissist and a sycophant, which results in bad decisions being made where in particular employees are concerned, the latter of the two continually telling the former that everything he does is great, in other words you will never get the backing you sometimes need to do your job effectively. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Pointless saying, they wouldn't take any notice!
