    I worked at K2 Partnering Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    K2 is always looking for ways to innovate, and ways to change the business for the better. A company where people care about each other, and want to see each other succeed. Real career progression is available, including international travel, and the chance to change path if you want to.

    Cons

    Sometimes the change management doesn't keep up with the changes! But it's important to keep trying to grow and change, so this is a small price to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on ways to engage your staff, and developing them at all levels. A new challenge is a great way to keep people working effectively.

    Pros

    Good company to learn about Recruitment, Processes, Technologies.
    Ongoing training on Sales
    Great office, great people to work with, good atmosphere.
    Possibility to get very good commissions

    Cons

    Always working on the same technologies are the best way to lose the resourcing team.
    People on the Contract side are more likely to be promoted.
    Try to be a bit more creating in terms of resourcing, there is plenty of platform to resource.

    Advice to Management

    The company seems to be going on the good direction, Management is always happy to share news on a local or global scale.
    Maybe find an other way to motivate people.

    Pros

    Clear about its goals and why you are hired - you are given targets, goals and guidance in order to achieve them. Great place to be if you are self-motivated and take pride in being successful.

    Sales environment, very friendly and healthy competition - great fit for someone that works fast and likes achieving results in the short term - team work is highly valued

    Leadership that can be trusted, meritocratic

    very innovative business - setting new grounds for recruitment and keeping standards really high.

    Cons

    as it is very focused on growth some areas of the business are a second thought... office is in constant renovation. Not that it is the most important thing to get placements done, but it is annoying to be moving around so much.

    A lot of micromanagement...

    Advice to Management

    This is a very forward thinking business when it comes down to technologies, market trends, sales strategies, keeping up with competition - willing to test new things and take risks.
    Time to have same approach with the way you manage people... embrace your mobile workforce, treat everyone as adults and when you ask for feedback listen to it with an open mind

    I worked at K2 Partnering Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked 2,5 years at K2 and it has been a very positive experience. I have learn a lot, made friends and money. What else do you need ?

    - Low Turnover: K2 is not a company that will throw you outside if you haven't made a deal in your first weeks. Attitude is key and if you apply yourself, you manager is very likely to give you your chance.

    - Commission plan: Let's put it this way, if you make deals, money is going to take care of itself. Doubling your earnings at level 1,2 and 3 is more than achievable.

    - People and culture: K2's best asset. The office is full of great and fun people and you will have loads to learn from the managers. Very "Cloudy" and mobile culture. People from A LOT of different countries.

    - Pool table, table football, "sundowners", Top performers lunch - There is some serious fun to have in the London office.

    - Fast track is possible: I saw associates having 3 promotions in roughly a year.

    Cons

    Do not expecting me to talk about work/life balance (if you are worried about that, you might be in the wrong line of job I am afraid).
    Having read previous reviews, some people doesn't seem to realise that recruitment is NOT an easy job and have a hard time differentiating the cons of Recruitment with the cons of K2. Which in my opinions are:

    - Some teams are performing better than other. You might very well start in a team where the company has been historically successful OR in a team where your progression will feel limited.

    - The benefits (outside of commissions) aren't great but there have been improvement lately.

    - Very little flexibility when it comes to remote work or work hours. For company where everything is cloud based you would hope for more.

    - You will be taught to work in a certain way. And there will be very little room to try your own way.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, I felt like the company is going on the right track.

    Perhaps give senior Associates a bit more flexibility in the way they work (remote, hours, methodologies...)
    and a few tweaks to the perks wouldn't hurt neither.
