    I have been working at Goodman Masson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am just coming up to the end of my 4th week so still early days but it seems like a great company so far!

    They set up intro meetings with all of the senior management team within your first few weeks which is a great chance to meet all of the senior staff which helps you settle in. The office environment is mature and you are trusted to do your job without overbearing micromanagement which has been the case at previous companies I have worked at. There support staff are great and always there to help including a really sophisticated Client Services team to help with putting together pitches and presentations.

    Free breakfast everyday is a nice perk and the benefits scheme is far better than any I have seem in the industry including interest free car loans and a mortgage fund where your contributions are topped up by 50% by the company.

    Cons

    No Cons at the moment

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    The support of all senior staff is amazing. All make you fee welcomed and comfortable to ask questions and learn. The office environment is great. You are treated like an adult and not a child at school. You are given the correct tools and guidance/training to excel in your role. Had not been here long when I had a family loss and the support i received was amazing! Also, the benefits package is the best I've seen anywhere.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say at all

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Well established brand with a great market share of the Third Sector and a great name behind them. Very good commission structure with one of the highest earning potentials that I have seen so far.
    The Experience is a definite positive and part of this is the Benefits Boutique! Dashboard also looks a brilliant tool! Friendly and warm colleagues with great networking and mentoring capabilities.

    Cons

    I am an avid cyclist and commuter and the building has no shower facilities at all. Very odd in the 21st Century. My old company was in one of the oldest buildings in London and even they had showers. Nothing much else to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Please can you put showers in somewhere. Pretty please.

    I have been working at Goodman Masson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since joining the company around a month ago, I have felt really welcomed on board by everyone from all levels. Training has been great and any problems, questions or queries that I've had have all been answered, and for me having not worked in recruitment before, this was really helpful.

    The atmosphere in the office has been great, all teams have been friendly and the introduction meetings with all of the directors has been a great help in learning all new names!

    The experience and benefits boutique is amazing and I'm really looking forward to making full use of them in the coming year.

    Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    The idea of a standing desk station wouldn't go a miss... Food for thought!

    I have been working at Goodman Masson full-time

    Pros

    -Great company culture, huge investment in staff benefits and engagements as they are privately owned
    -A transparent, market leading commissions structure that beats competitors
    -A very strong SMT that are always present, very approachable and support staff at all levels
    -Always innovating - whether in system development or employee engagement they are open to ideas from employees and action them if they make sense.
    -Fantastic Mortgage Scheme to get their staff on the property ladder!

    Cons

    None really. The only thing that comes to mind is that Recruitment Consultants are sat on 2 different floors depending on their coverage. For newcomers, it can take time to get to know Consultants on the other floor as they get introduced to the managers but not people at their own level in their first week. Everyone gets to meet eventually through the ongoing employee engagement initiatives but it would be good to happen sooner rather than later I think.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
