    Good place to have a fundamental understanding of Headhunting

    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.

    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.

    Review of HRnet One as an Intern

    Oct 13, 2015 - Intern in Singapore
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Joining this company as an intern was indeed an eye opener to be able to experience something different. It allowed me to further understand what I learnt in school and see how it is executed in the working world. Orientation was professional conducted by our HR Business Partner, which was beneficial for new employees as they explained the internal details of the company. Furthermore, I was assigned an experienced mentor who took pride in guiding me through the procedure of recruitment and selection. He taught me to treat this as a real job instead of an internship. With the proper guidance, I was able to clear my doubts and gained even more experience and knowledge. Having my intern in HRnet One is indeed a great exposure and a valuable experience.

    Cons

    Despite having many advantages, one con of this company would be the morning exercise which is really easy to do but quite dull and uninteresting as it is not my kind of thing.

    One of the worst recruitment firms in the market

    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.

    Pros

    - Office in the center of the city and in Taipei 101, effective for promotion and convenient to do business - They give people chances, as long as you are willing to try and show your ambition and hard work - Professionalism is highlighted and they care about integrity and long term value to clients and candidates than many competitors - Very supportive colleagues; employee here are from diverse background and many are well educated and speak fluent English - Clear incentive plans; you can make money if you are outperformed - Can reimburse transportation fee and coffee expense

    Cons

    - No flexibility on working hours and schedules; working hours are long because you usually need to stay late at night to interview candidates after work and to write various reports; weekend OT is the norm; however, you are required to start working at 830am everyday; challenged if planning to take leaves longer than 2 days; criticized if you take short coffee break during working hours - always asking for mapping results , such as organizational charts and all the contact info ; spending too much time on digging out the latest info ( not useful to current projects) and reporting to leaders; repeating mapping without real purpose - Daily morning exercise starting at 830 and leaders would correct your posture ; forced to share personal gratitude with all colleagues everyday - High stress, very competitive industry and the company is sales driven and puts high standards on activities, requiring 10 new interviews per week - direct and rude; some leaders are rude to people who do not meet their high expectations - No much perks other than the incentive plan; employees need to spend their own money to host TGIF snacks and drinks; very limited office supplies

Because we are stuck in meetings all day...... - Commission structure - initially thought it was good. Current company is much better and fairer

    Weird Company

    Pros

    Good only if you like to manage your own business like MLM or like cold-calling

    Cons

    Super weird company where we do morning exercise everyday, says a pledge.... Lots of training that is planned only on Saturdays or starts at 5pm If you are 1 min late, there is a weekly report which highlights all the latecomers and sent out to management every week. Career advancement is based on how many people you recruit, works like a mlm system If you recruit 3 consultants you can become a team lead
