      Great company to work for - genuinely care about employee feedback and are committed to continually improving!

      Pros

      Great leadership team, inclusive fun culture, big investment in setting you up for success (L&D team in-house, big investments in CRM, marketing, employee benefits, motivating bonus structure) Always innovating and encouraging people to share ideas/collaborate. Big improvements made recently in terms of enhanced parental leave, benefits, even greater flexible work than before, D&I networks. Very exciting place to be with ambitious growth plans in place and lots of opportunities for recruiters at all levels of experience.

      Cons

      The leaders are human and may not get everything right 100% of the time, but who does. I read some negative comments below on how GM managed Covid and take on the feedback but for me personally, I felt the leadership team did a really good job under such challenging circumstances to try and keep everyone informed throughout the pandemic every step of the way via Town Halls and check in calls from the Board, they went above and beyond to look after people from a financial and mental wellbeing perspective, in particular, to offset the short term challenges that were faced and to try make sure we were all OK. The things that were implemented to keep us feeling connected as 1 team was admirable. As I said, they are human but from my experience if ever there are gaps/areas for improvement the leadership team are quick to learn from that as they are always asking for feedback, remedy it and make improvements for the future. Its one of the positive things that consistently offsets and short term negatives that ever arise.

      Pros

      First job out of university could have asked for anything better. Fantastic support for your growth well the perfect work life balance. For someone moving to London this was essential. Never expected how much the organisation care for their employees! It's exactly "what it say's on the tin" and more! Great mix of good fun and hunger to perform!

      Cons

      There isn't many cons. I was recommended the organisation by a third party who worked for a competitor.

      Pros

      Great people Good earning potential Management were friendly and approachable Success was recognised Good company culture Great flexible working

      Cons

      Handled residencies and mass firing during the Covid pandemic terribly. They let go of some seriously lovely, loyal and talented consultants without offering anything more than their standard notice period. I heard from multiple consultants that even after the government announced companies could re-hire and put onto furlough, they decided not to. For a business that promotes looking after their employees, they really did hang a lot of people out to dry. During this period of time they then continued to hire new consultants, which is mind-blowing in all honesty.
