    I have been working at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    With healthcare recruitment being one of the toughest at present with changes in then NHS, HCL has not cut corners and followed their values at all times. This is all that's needed for a secure position in the temporary staffing market in healthcare.

    Cons

    All recruitment consultants look for good commission - HCL's commissions aren't the best around.

    Advice to Management

    Be steady and keep sticking to your values which is HCL's best selling point.

    I worked at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time

    Pros

    I had a great few years at HCL. Really there is great career development, nice working environment and they value employees for sure. Great benefits offered and incentives like days out, prizes etc. I actually was promoted many times whilst I was there. People on this site are complaining about redundancies but what to do? That is the nature of the beast and occurs in most large companies.

    Cons

    During the end of my time at HCL, a lot of the management left.

    Advice to Management

    Use the same methods as the old management.

    Pros

    Excellent commission structure - at least on my division
    Great Team, good atmosphere

    Too old fashioned in terms of management, I would like to see a bit more flexibility. A bit more social media wouldn't hurt.

    Google: how to attract and retain millennials and you will find a bit more about what we want.
