    Pros

    Based on the client site, so we had the benefit of nice surroundings. Being on site meant we could work closer with the client and really knew what they wanted.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management. There were several occasions where the client was telling us what was going on in the business. Even fundamental things like benefits - we had private health cover and yet this was never communicated until we questioned our P11Ds.

    Advice to Management

    never assume. You lost a long standing client because of you assumed that you'd get the re-tender and didn't. You didn't try and we lost our jobs because of it.

    I have been working at Hyphen full-time

    Pros

    Fast-growing. Fun to work there with opportunity to get lots of responsibility and very quickly.

    Cons

    You need to be a fast learner or can left behind sometimes. But the management is fair and takes time to talk through problems.

    Advice to Management

    Try and add more fun outside of work activities.

  3. "Value your people"

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

    Pros

    I worked for hyphen for around 3 years full time. Some the individuals that work there are amazing, really exceptional recruiters - not transnational traditional recruiters but real business partners. They take time to understand their client needs and have passion about what they are doing and how they do it.

    Cons

    unfortunately the cons for me out wieghed the pro's including: -
    - Lack of praise (both financial and non-financial)
    - High staff attrition - those that work hard and are really embedded with the client go unnoticed or are forgotten.
    - Little training and development from the company
    - Limited career progression
    - Not a great work-life-balance
    - Very us and them mentality from the head office

    Advice to Management

    Start really listening to the feedback of your employees, take notice and value them before they leave.
