      Pros

      The magic of this organisation lies within its people. If you want to be part of something bigger, if you are seeking out a career that allows you to reach your full potential than this is place for you. High energy, focused but fun environment for those that love to make a difference to the people they work with both internally and externally. Loads of training and support, career progression based on merit and performance and the opportunity to transform the success of companies and peoples lives...including your own!

      Cons

      You will encounter many challenges and experience failure on a regular basis. Your ability to learn from the setbacks, overcome adversity and stay the course will deliver rewards that most only dream of. To be successful, you will need to bring all your discipline, resilience, optimism and hard work to the table.

      People, culture, career progression, growth, brand. Having worked for Hays across two countries i would recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun energetic company, in which you can grow and really feel valued to seriously consider working for the industry leader.

      Cons

      Office space, nothing other than that.

      Pros

      - the commission scheme is good. if you do well, you can easily earn a monthly pay that is way above your peers who are of the same age. - they try to keep things interesting in the office by having various activities to drive performance and keep you entertained - good pantry - have various awards on a monthly and quarterly basis to keep you motivated - transparent career progression with lucrative increment for each jump.

      Cons

      - if you are not a KPI/action/sales driven person this may not be the place for you. high expectations are already upon you on Day 1 - they micromanage on a daily basis and if you don't hit your daily KPIs they will start to question you - you think your opinion matters but in actual fact, it doesn't. once management has decided on something, they will give you an option to "feedback" to voice out your opinions but eventually they will twist it back to their initial direction. - management is not flexible and do not take care of their employees mental/family wellbeing. they only think about themselves and do not think of the bigger picture. if you try to question them or push back, then your position or status in the company will be questioned.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I joined Hays around 5 years ago as an Associate Recruitment Consultant with 1 year prior recruitment experience. Since day one I have received market leading training to help me develop my career from strength to strength. Hays have a very clear career progression plan for individuals at all levels with achievable milestones which are constantly being reviewed to help you achieve the best possible career. Since joining Hays, I have achieved 3 promotions as well being on track to being promoted to Manager over a high performing team. Hays offer a wide range of career paths from operational management to sales / strategic focused opportunities, so you will always find a career path that would suit your ambitions. The culture at Hays is truly rewarding, I work with a number of likeminded professionals who all share the same goal to provide a first class service to both candidates & clients.

      Cons

      The cons for working at Hays are the working hours. However, this has recently changed with the introduction of a hybrid working from home policy.
