    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial, Leadership team very approachable and down to earth, high performing teams, good incentives (commission structure, platinum Bonus...), high-achievers trips, if you are hard working the business will support/back you

    Cons

    Even though things like Flexi working have been put into place you don’t always feel like you are in control of your hours (monitored- you have to tell your manager), not always made aware of decisions (hiring, firm merging with another entity...), difficult to keep track of what other teams are doing (cross-selling with one Investigo does not always work).

    Advice to Management

    What makes the company unique is our agility and down to earth culture. Sometimes communication for important decisions and between different team could be a little bit better. With the growth it’s important that we stick to our core values and do not become to KPI driven. The weekly 15-5-5 (15 cvs, 5 meetings and 5 interviews) is very standardised and not always great.

    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being surrounded by High Performers
    The culture of the business- mature, driven and ambitious
    The people!
    There is a genuine desire to grow- with the investment to back it up
    The freedom to grow a business area
    The learning and development at all levels

    Cons

    Having been in recruitment for 7 years, it's actually hard to think of the negatives here. As with every business there are some minor technical glitches and the system could be a little more refined

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Keep driving us and supporting us to expand and build

    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a really high standard set by the company and all consultants in the business which pushes everyone.

    The quarterly events and summer events are really good fun and the marketing team always do a splendid job in making sure they go smoothly.

    Flexible working has recently been brought in, which is a huge benefit to managing work like balance.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a lack in communication from some different teams internally. Mostly when working with a specific client that might also be useful to another number of consultants.

    Pros

    Consistent support from not only my line Manager but other Senior Managers/Directors within the business along with an abunance of social events that the company organise and invest a lot of money in. The office in general is a very mature yet fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    No cons so far so good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the attentive care and sales support to their team!

    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Investigo pro’s:
    • Likeminded people who genuinely want to do well and see others do well.
    • An amazing trainer / training manager who offers one on one caters each session based on your requirments what you want to improve on.
    • Collaborative culture encouraged within teams so there isn’t a "dog eat dog" environment.
    • There are a number of the senior management team who have grown organically with the business, who live and breathe Investigo’ s values and ethos, and are also specialists in their field of business. These people are so valuable to the business as they demonstrate how you can forge a long term career within the company, particularly during times of change and growth.

    Cons

    • Whilst flexible working is in place, it would be nice to have more flexibility around working from home

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

    Pros

    Business promotes Flexible Working culture
    Earning potential can be huge because of Bonus scheme
    Early Friday finishes
    Work from home

    Cons

    Internal Politics
    KPI heavy
    No HR function
    Certain managers are very micro managing
    High turnover in some teams
    Not enough ‘oneinvestigo’

    Advice to Management

    The business is heading in the right direction and I truly believe Investigo would like to invest in its employees. However there is a lot of politics in certain teams and wrong people in management. This creates a very toxic working environment and with no HR function can be difficult to trust who to go to to discuss certain issues and believe something will be done. I think Investigo needs to be careful on the backgrounds of the managers as there are a lot of managers and directors coming from large corporate agencies and bringing the culture of those larger agencies to investigo.
