    I have been working at Major Players full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're wanting to get into Recruitment, this is the place to be. The people are young and sociable, yet hardworking and driven. It is an autonomous working environment which is clearly working for us. The work hard, play-hard mentality is alive and thriving at MP. There is potential for EVERYONE to develop on their own terms and the support and training around this is solid. The people and culture are amazing...

    Pros

    Specialist consultants who genuinely care about their clients, their candidates, their colleagues and the wider business. Top notch marketing and social media offering. Investment in the people working for them is 2nd to none. Superb social scene with amazing bar, great events and many a fun night! Healthy commission with the ability to hit the heights for those who drive to excel. The leadership team respond to...

    Cons

    Ermm..... more Roxy Music on the radio?? Maybe more industry experts to come in and speak to teams about their disciplines - upskilling by those in the industry, which won't feel like classroom learning. Genuinely struggling to think of any, as very little room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, keep doing what you're doing, keep hiring people who will make a difference and do all you can to retain those who don't just work hard but add something a little special to the place. And keep that bar nicely stocked ;-)

    Wow, it is so disappointing to read this. MP clearly didn't work out for this ex-employee! Just on a point of fact, our staff turnover in 2017 is actually 30% which is well below the industry average of 50% and is something we are really proud of. I would be delighted to chat to ...

    Thanks for your comments. They reflect what we are trying to achieve so big tick there! Many people talk about trying to achieve a" family" feel to their businesses but that scares me! Families fight and get too comfortable with each other. I feel we should strive for our employees ...
