    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Mayford James full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job and if you want to work in recruitment it would give you basic experience. It relies heavily on a few clients so I suppose you learn a little about fund accountancy.

    Cons

    Long hours
    Unstable they made 4 people redundant in the 6 months I was there.
    Rely heavily on a few clients who simply aren't recruiting that much.
    Senior management of parent company pretty unfriendly don't make an effort really. One director only had a proper conversation with me after being asked by my boss to take me for a drink.
    Absolutely zero social side. Maybe one drink once a month.
    Promises to train you to start your own desk which never materialises.
    Work pretty dull. Mainly trawling job boards.
    Very basic £22k starting salary.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know people you hire. Sort out the cash flow shortage you clearly have.
