    I have been working at McGregor Boyall Associates (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture if you like the 'jack the lad' sort of humour. Very social, drinks every Thursday and Friday nights. No micro management and very laid back for a recruitment firm which is fantastic if you want an easier approach to sales. Good working environment.

    Cons

    Desperately need an IT department to assist with the business as they currently outsource. This is vital for any company as it is the engine driving the business. Needs addressing. The office is slightly run down and could do with simple things like cutlery, new toaster, a microwave that works... Benefits aren't as good as other companies but the working environment is much nicer to work in so it equals out.

    Advice to Management

    Spruce up the office like re painting and kitchen stuff. small things can make a huge difference! A proper IT department is vital and needs to be looked at.

    Pros

    This was my first role out of university. Good culture and quick progression with a lot of autonomy to develop into different markets.
    Not much to say in terms of training although with any recruitment role you will learn on the job.
    A lot of existing clients and relaxed environment (not the typical boiler room environment you hear about).
    No micro-management.
    You can genuinely make a lot of money doing minimum BD.
    Encouraged to get promoted and not held-back.

    Cons

    No defined structures between each vertical which at time causes confusion.
    No structured training although if you're fairly independent in your approach then this can be a benefit.
    Sometimes too relaxed and people fall into false comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on training and set defined promotion targets for AC's to increase productivity/morale.

    Pros

    Adult environment that isn't KPI driven. Great people.

    Cons

    MD sits in his ivory tower all day. Senior management very poor. Old boys club. No vision to take the business forward.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your workforce. Tell your consultants the business strategy.

    I have been working at McGregor Boyall Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The London office is in a great location - not only for commuting but for any after work socialising! The company offers great incentives and hard-work is rewarded as well as support if needed.

    Cons

    I think staff would appreciate flexible working hours.
