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

    Pros

    This company used to be a retained searching firm, and most of its senior leaders still works as a typical retained Consultant, you can engage with lots of senior candidates and you can learn a lot from the senior candidates. Moreover, you have quite independency to handle your own cases, as long as you can show the progress or the result after spending your effort and company's money.

    Cons

    No work and life balance, they will brainwash you like "work is life, life is work, so, your work and life balanced!"
    The morning exercise could be quite annoying to some people
    No appreciation and no fun environmental, even you did something good, they will only say "what's the next?"
    Everyday, Every week, Every month, only thing is NUMBER, if you can't cooking the NUMBERS, you will suffer.
    Almost no training.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire a new role, please be realistic and have a proper training process, give them guidance.

    I worked at HRnet One part-time

    Pros

    The working environment is good. Every employee are highly motivated to boost their productivity. Colleagues are friendly and my supervisors are willing to teach you the skills,

    Cons

    Not really suitable for people who can't work under stress because they have the quota to meet. And it is important to have the communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    don't really have much advice to management, maybe increasing the interaction among colleagues that work in different team.

    I have been working at HRnet One full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong teamwork both in Hong Kong office and throughout the 10 offices in APAC. Definitely not silo'd and will have fun have exposure to other markets. Long tenure of many senior consultants, quite rare in the industry which clients really appreciate.

    Cons

    You will be expected to perform and be driven. Not for those who aren't ambitious and willing to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing exponential growth now that company is publicly listed.

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

    Pros

    I join HRJ for about a year with minimum recruiting experience.
    There was training provided from the management however, it was not relevant to the recruitment process. It is more on sales and closing techniques.
    You learn about the specific industry you are assigned to like an expert through mapping process. Even senior candidates were impress with the knowledge we knew in their industry. Senior candidates trust the company.

    Cons

    They used Retained/ Executive Search techniques on contingency positions. We eventually lose out to database company. Speed was too slow in today's market.
    HRJ's database is too weak. With close to no information regarding candidates besides name and dated mobile and email addresses. There is NO data integrity within the consultants in the company and no one enforce data entry regarding details of the candidates we met.
    Late night during weekdays are common.
    Saturday work in the office is common too.
    No worklife balance.
    You may be driven. But without the right infrastructure and process in place, probably less than 5% will be successful in the company.
    The rest, like a rotating door. Comes and goes.

    Advice to Management

    HRJ's management had no exposure to different systems and processes.
    Most of them join HRJ as the 1st recruiting company and just used whatever was available.
    I would advice the management to accept changes from new experienced recruiters hired.

    I worked at HRnet One full-time

    Pros

    Managers have high EQ and are patient when explaining details of task

    Cons

    Managers do not have much time to spend on giving newbies attention due to the fact that they are also over-worked.
    They make you work on weekends without excuse and without additional payment. Negative comments telling you you can do even better even though you have already worked from 9 to 10 everyday. It is never enough. To them it does not matter if you quit because you leave with new database. Therefore half of company are consultants under 6 months

    Advice to Management

    No hope

    Pros

    you might have good skills to lie other people by calling many companies. And try to convince them to fire from their place and offer a new job which they will benefit 30% of total salary of the company they are hired for them.

    Pros: become a professional lier with making up different stories.

    Cons

    no housing accommodation,
    no training at all. you do everything by yourself. only what they care is numbers in their bank accounts.
    everyone do their own work.
    office is too small. they love budgeting even though they millions on their bank account
    they will treat you with glass of water.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic, give a proper training for the newcomers. it do es not matter if they can or not. you must give a training. and do not lie that you are give a training on a spot. No one really cares

    And if you look for loyal people to work in your company be yourself loyal and listen to your workers what they say to you. Do not think you are genius in this world

    Pros

    At least you get a job. Yes, at least you get a job which probably looks like a decent one. That's all.

    Cons

    Give up your life, then you'll feel better. Give up your life, then you'll feel better. Give up your life, then you'll feel better.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make employees work on holidays. There's no contract that force us to, but the whole culture and the supervisors do. I could give up my life during week days, but I do hope I could live NORMALLY on weekends.
