    Pros

    The great thing about Investigo is that you're treated like an adult and are allowed to run your own desk and manage it in the way you want. The people are great and they hold various events throughout the year and they are amazing. It's a really fun place to work and also the money is great, both in terms of base salary and potential commission. And they offer flexible working hours.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the hours are quite long, but most recruitment roles have these hours. The hours are flexible though which helps.

    I haven't been with Investigo long but already so happy with the decision to work here.

    Could not think of anything negative to say about Investigo.

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

    Pros

    Great team - no cliques and a everyone genuinely wants their colleagues to do well and celebrate other people’s success
    Incentives - lots of different things to help celebrate success, from lunches, weekends away to the summer conference at The Grove
    Marketing Team – without a doubt the best team I have met in any agency, constantly driving new content, client events and candidate events and everything is organised so seamlessly!
    Grown up environment – no core hours or people losing the plot if you go out for a coffee at 10am – you are free to manage your time and trusted to as well – quite rare in recruitment…
    Commission - one of the best schemes I have come across in recruitment

    Cons

    The hours – would be great if the core office hours were reduced to reflect that most people work outside of the office / have work mobiles – but recruitment is always going to be long hours and with flexible working you can tailor your start and finish time around your lifestyle too

    Pros

    The summer conference is one of the highlights of the year at an amazing location!

    It really is so generous that Investigo put on such an amazing day for all its employees. The day starts off with a delicious breakfast before the conference. The presentation is always really funny and engaging and recognises the most successful individuals, and is something to strive towards for the next year for others.

    After the conference you are treated to the most amazing buffet lunch of literally anything you could ever imagine!! After lunch is an afternoon of team-building activities which sounds horrendous but is actually really fun, where you get to know other people in the business.

    After the activities you can relax in the gorgeous grounds of the Grove - swimming, playing golf, relaxing in your hotel room, having a spa, hitting the bar... then later everyone gets dresseed up for pre-dinner drinks and live music, followed by a three course dinner, fully expensed bar, amazing party, photobooth.. and of course an overnight stay at The Grove, with a full breakfast in the morning to nurse your hangover!

    It really does make you feel proud to be part of such an amazing business and I think we are incredibly lucky to be treated like this as I know a lot of businesses that put on simnlar events for their top performers but nothing as inclusive and amazing as such a luxurious day for the whole business to enjoy.

    Thanks so much Investigo for another amazing day. Can't wait until the next one!

    Cons

    Pros

    This year's annual conference on 6th July 2018 made me feel very proud. I know the weather was kind to us and that the Grove played its part but the morning session was simply exceptional. Anyone new and old couldn’t help but have been impressed by the achievements of the last 12 months and be excited by what lies ahead. The spirit on Friday night was amazing and I’ve never been to an event where there were more people on the dance floor than at the bar.
    The best one yet. Great job everyone.
    Thank you.

    Cons

    The only area would be that the entrepreneurial nature of the company encourages autonomy which can result in a few paying lip service to certain areas - for example: the value of a robust and well-used CRM.

    Advice to Management

    The introduction of Open Blend is an exciting development which will help to foster a genuine coaching mentality at every level. Every support should be given to L&D to make this part of the fabric of the company. The great news is that the CEO is the main sponsor which should ensure its success.
