    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    there is an energy in the offices of FRG like no other and everyone here is extremely supportive in our effort to be the best recruitment firm in the world.

    Cons

    as we continue to grow, we need to continue to search for the best and brightest talent in the workforce. We need to hire individuals that aren't just looking for a paycheck, but rather a long-term career.

    Advice to Management

    Let's continue to rollout more incentives for top performers in the company and promote from within. That has been the key to our success not only in the US, but across the globe.

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started working for Frank Recruitment Group (FRG) over two years ago - in that time I have received two promotions and got the opportunity to relocate to New York to work for our Washington Frank brand. FRG gave me the opportunity to have a career, be financially stable and enjoy my successes with the people around me. The environment is a work hard play hard environment and everyone I work with want the opportunity...

    Cons

    Occasionally, you will have to put in longer hours that the typical 9-5, but the company is very up front about this from the beginning and if you go the extra mile you will be rewarded in the long run

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was brought on at Nigel Frank nearly 2 years ago after feeling undervalued in my previous role. After being #1 in my district in sales, yet getting denied a promotion due to longevity, I wanted to look for a position with a company that would reward my hard work and success with 1) career progression & 2) money- and that is exactly what I found. In less than 2 years I have been promoted 3 times and have nearly tripled...

    Cons

    With every job comes the grunt work. It is rare that people come into a completely new role in an industry they are not familiar with and immediately experience a ton of success. To get there takes a lot of effort and hours. Not every day is the most glamorous and exciting day. Yes it can be exhausting at times, but when you compare the pros vs the cons, it's hard not to be pleased.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower the future leaders of the business that want to be with the company for the long run

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group

    Pros

    I was able to fast track my career with the Frank Recruitment Group. The company offers a great career structure to allow people to grow and develop into senior and management positions. Be recognized & rewarded for hard work - The company offers regular conferences and 'First Thursday' events with promotions and rewards. We also have big holiday incentives, lunch club rewards and sales days. Work hard, play hard...

    Cons

    We have a small office with not much room to move around. We only have one meeting room which can be difficult at times to share and not enough space for team meetings. Long hours - Long hours are required to do well but this does pay off once you start seeing the results!

    Advice to Management

    Management are always trying to make improvements to the business to make the office more effective and a fun place to work. They are doing a great job so far!

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group

    Pros

    Having worked in the company two and a half years I can categorically say it's been one of the best decisions of my life. Was it tough at the beginning? Yes. A sales job will always be tough at the start as you learn, and build up a market, however at every step of the way there has been great training and support from Managers and Team Leaders all across the business. In add, the social side is very good and you make...

    Pros

    Good training and the correct mindset to make money and good business mentality. Good incentive trips are on offer for those who have performed well. That being said kpi's are insisted but not pressured on you like other companies. The notion is if you want to take an opportunity of a lifetime on grow some good experience and make 100k+ per annum then put the hours in and get it done. Recognize good performers quickly...

    Cons

    Theres no cons. Because i walked in here very transparent about what i had to do to make money so im doing it and making money. Its a win win. But its not general standard recruitment. Its a very niche and specialised area. So jump on board if you want to earn money

    Cons

    > 1 big con that has been rectified is the support and training for managers and senior managers in the business. This has been fixed with lots more courses so that top sales guys become top managers > Work life balance isn't good. But if i wanted a 9-5 I'd of gone a different route. 3 stars is honest, but if you want to be making money then you have to be all over your market and ultimately, it is your own choice...

    Advice to Management

    > keep doing little competitions > keep finding new ways to incentivise staff to hit KPI's. Sure everyone wants £50 for the most CV's out, but telling them the loser has to make 7 coffee's for recruiters being purposefully difficult with the orders just for banter.... That's the way to get me working double fast and have a laugh while doing it
