    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 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Used to be retained search company, thus a good place to build up foundation.
    Senior Leaders are nice people in person.
    Good chance to meet a lots of senior candidates and learn from them.

    Cons

    Top management team have strong culture and believe. Not welcome new idea but will brain wash you to trust what they believe from their experience.
    Very singapore local style.
    OT for the purpose of OT. Not because you cannot finish your task, just because all other colleagues are OT, why you are not as hard working as them.
    A lot of reviews and reports need to be done. To detailed KPI. Waste a lot of time in this paper work and all kinds of meeting.
    Salary package not as good as other search firms.
    Apart from management team who stayed very long. Not other senior consultant. Most of them left within 2 years. No proper successor plan for employees.

    Pros

    Cons

    Very demanding management style though they felt it's the way called transparent lol

    Most of the leaders don't have any real industry working experience

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any thing to say cause things won't change
    Please don't join this company you'll be super suffering

    I worked at HRnet One full-time

    Pros

    Good environment for fresh graduate to learn fundamentals of headhunting - cold calling, interviewing, 'networking' with senior candidates; etc

    Cons

    Old-school management, family run business, senior management team is unethical, no work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat employees as machines or sales generating robots - this is not a way to build an organization that will last.

    I worked at HRnet One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leaders will train you to be the best caller when approaching candidates on the phone. One day you have to make 50 calls (must have someone who talks to you on the phone).

    Cons

    It is very much a call center work environment, and if you do not make calls means you are not working on that day.

    Leaders will have daily meeting with you either before 9am / during lunch time (12pm/1pm) / after working hour (6pm onwards). This is to make sure that you maintain your daily performance, and you have to carry the balance of work forward to the next day, if you have fail to meet the KPI (for example, if you only make 20 calls out of 50 calls, you have to make 80 calls in the following day).

    They do morning exercise every morning. The Chairman thinks that if you don't do well in the exercise, means you cannot perform your job well, and you have a serious learning disability. You will be put under his radar and any time you might be asked to leave.

    'No action talk only' happens under the Chairman's leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest the Chairman to spend more time on expanding the business, focus more on investor relations, rather than spending time to do the operational work. This will easily affect the leaders' work, and whatever work that the leaders have planned, most of the time it will be overtaken by the Chairman.

    Leaders are over utilized most of the time because they have to build key accounts, build relationship with the clients, candidates, and team members. The leaders are also required to run cases too. Good thing is that it trains you very well in how to manage clients/team/candidates - time management, and at the same time taking care of the P&L. Suggest just to be the leader for 2 years, then you can leave to join other search firms to lead the company there, or set up your own firm.
