      Pros

      - Compared to many recruitment agencies they are not a strongly KPI driven environment (which is great) - Very friendly environment - Company holidays - Flexible working hours (when reaching your billing) - Long-established relationship with their clients - They are accredited by RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor), a big plus when working withing the Property and Build environment industry - Great opportunities...

      Cons

      - Office a bit outdated (getting a office refurb soon - Easter 2019) - Location (Oxford Circus) - easy to get to, loads of amenities and restaurants around, but well busy when getting out of the office

      I have been working at Macdonald & Company full-time

      Pros

      Provides in depth beginning and continuous training. Very supportive and collaborative environment. Challenging. One of few recruitment companies that do value it's employees time and personal life

      Cons

      Long hours but that is just the nature of recruitment.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing

      I have been working at Macdonald & Company full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Joined 3 months ago and have really enjoyed my career here so far! Everyone is open and keen to help each other which is something I haven't experienced in other recruitment companies. The management have been fully supportive allowing me to build my desk without micro-managing & invested in my development through both internal and external training.

      Cons

      I haven't experienced any cons as regular contact with the management has addressed any issues.

      Advice to Management

      Keep investing in your staff and being open to improvements!
