    Pros

    - great commission scheme
    - nice & friendly people
    - consultants are given the autonomy to work in a way that suits them, no micro-management
    - set career structure so you can take control
    - not a huge gap between management and staff, everyone is very friendly and willing to offer help & support

    - good incentives for high performing staff

    Cons

    - systems are a bit slow but this has been addressed

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

    Pros

    Part of ManpowerGroup, the 2nd largest recruitment business in the world. Experts in IT, Engineering & Finance recruitment. Amazing platform, extensive database of over 1 million contacts, great training "Centre of Excellence" performed by our top performing Recruiters, exciting development programmes on offer, can see multiple career pathway opportunities for me, clearly set expectations, adult and enjoyable working environment, extensive incentives and opportunities to win holidays, cash bonuses, prizes and a large number of social events . Unlike other companies we are given the autonomy and flexibility to build our own business in our own way. I'm told by Consultants who have moved here from our competitors that our brand and reputation in the market makes it easier to build relationships with leading clients. Makes my job easier! Great work life balance, taught to work smart, no micro-management. Incredibly strong commission scheme + generous car allowance which is easily achievable. Competitive basics. Have made amazing friends here that will be friends for life. Reward culture - If you work hard you get rewarded generously.

    Cons

    No cons - if you work hard then you are appreciated. We get all of the tools and support needed to be successful. You do have to motivate yourself more when you aren't micromanaged but I much prefer this. You get treated with more respect and feel like an adult.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Experis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very little pressure
    In-house trainer is quite good
    Monthly high-performer lunches
    Manager's favourites are the 'golden boys' and can do no wrong
    Good interaction with director
    360 consultants they have are rubbish, making it easier to stand out!

    Cons

    Atmosphere is like a school common room - very childish and different cliques
    Incredibly low salaries with zero real increases
    Incredibly incompetent on-site account managers
    Managers move goal posts in order to not promote/give payrises
    Very poor commission scheme for managing resourcers (2%)
    Forced to work rubbish roles on big accounts - as low as 6% margins and <£20k salaries, regardless of seniority
    Bullying; HR turned a blind eye due to one of the complaints being about a top biller.
    Micro management

    Advice to Management

    Set goals which when they are hit, the promised rewards are given. Hire decent 360 consultants to bring on better roles. Improve salaries (+33% recommended).
