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

    Pros

    You will learn how to make cold calls

    You will know how to do the market mapping.

    You will have chance meet candidates instead of being researcher even you are new to recruitment industry.

    Cons

    Morning exercise is ridiculous.

    You work like a machine. Every day you come to office you just report the number and make the cold calls for all day.

    Don't expect they will provide you training or any encouragement since this company don't treat employees nice and the leader is very mean to their colleagues.

    Micro management and encourage lead by conflicts. Management encourage internal competitions. Working atmosphere is not good.

    High turnover rate. You cannot remember all colleagues name because people leave so quick.

    So many gossip and rumours in the office. No one can be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better.

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

    Pros

    HR and Operation Process are smooth. Able to learn the recruitment industry
    Peers are always friendly and helpful

    Cons

    No such thing as work life balance, CEO believes that your work is your life and there is no such thing as leaving on time even when work is completed as it would look like you are not putting enough effort.
    Company speaks about promoting a healthy lifestyle by enforcing a morning exercise that the CEO will join in. He will ridicule you in front of the crowd if you are unable to perform some of the exercise that leaves you sweaty and sticky which makes you feel uncomfortable to work.

    Company gives more merits on "old heads" and your efforts are measured based on how the "old heads" deem suffice.
    You will never get more than 2 days leave even if you manage to reach your target as they believe you should work on your next quarters target.
    You need to come in on a Saturday every quarter to have a meeting and comparison on numbers from every department which every team will try to inflate or make their team sound as they are doing better than they are.

    Advice to Management

    Give a choice to the employee if he/she would prefer working than being forced to exercise or watch videos for half to an hour that we are required to compensate by working longer.
    Encourage work life balance rather than forcing employees who are facing a temporary drought to come in on Saturdays where they don't actually do anything.

    Pros

    Good place to learn about executive search and build skillsets as a recruiter. Highly demanding and work in pressure, toughen you up. Interaction with high calibre candidates and clients.

    Cons

    Really sick place, company culture all about money and build values on monetary benefits. Brain wash you by making you read books on how to be great in sales, the secret then make you take tests on them. Fine you for being late even though you have to work long hours. Stretch you and resources are non existent, you have to do a-z by yourself. You have NO life outside work, work life balance non existent and I hated weekend trainings, quarterly SP, real waste of time and life. Leaders there has NO corporate experience whatsoever, family business way of management by 1 man- Peter sim who is treated like god.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in real professional managers and start treating your only resource - people decently.
