    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.

    Pros

    No such a feeling about it

    Cons

    A very good place If you intend to be a professional lier.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tag everyone left as unqualified.
    Don't even lie to your own stuffs (clients as well)
    Treasure your stuff better than keep laundrying new faces.

    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.

    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.
