    I have been working at Montash full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive, professional, structured and they have a clear strategy of where they are heading and how I can be part of it. I joined 11 months ago and there’s lots of positive change. Lots of people are new, new MD who knows his stuff, new leaders and new teams. It’s got a great vibe. Really sales focused but not crazy KPI that make you tick boxes. They’re SMART. They’ll teach you high value KPI. Also they’re massive on Service, Relationships and Knowledge which is the MDs ethos. We have weekly communications, league tables, incentives and I actually enjoy coming into work. I never thought I’d write that!! Lol

    Cons

    It’s a sales environment so you want to be surrounded by motivated people but I sometimes see the odd person not focused or not working hard for success and it annoys me. The training wasn’t great when I arrived but that’s changed massively in the last 12 months - lots of 121 or group sessions. I think we could have more inter-team competitions maybe.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you give the new people time. I’ve been here 11 months and only now have I started to do deals. It takes time to build relationships and knowledge, which is your ethos, so give people time to do it. Also please don’t retain people who can’t do the job or don’t really want to - it’s not good. That said I dont see too many people who can’t do it - but some need a bit more of a kick!!

    I have been working at Montash full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with montash for a number of years and have really enjoyed my time. I have seen the company grow and with it I have grown. The people here are great, very helpful and supportive.

    Breakfast on Fridays
    Fruit bowl
    Promotions
    Good training and support
    Fun environment

    Cons

    Can't think of any major ones. Recruitment can be tough as there is a lot of effort required but that's the industry...

    Advice to Management

    Keep on growing, keep on investing in staff and lots of training pls.

    I worked at Montash full-time

    Pros

    Montash are a forward thinking company that are becoming a real player in the recruitment industry. Since bringing in Roy as MD they have implemented a clear strategy that allows a strategic path to market. A great place for consultants to learn and grow, fantastic commission structure, industry leading incentives, flexible working hours and nicely located in the heart of London.

    Montash have implemented a leadership team that care deeply about their teams and the business as a whole. This type of passion is rare to find.

    Cons

    There aren't any negatives that I can think of. I left for personal reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Roy - keep doing what your doing, people on the market are talking more and more about Montash and I know that in the very near future you will be a major player on all fronts.

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

    Pros

    Location
    Colleagues (not management)
    IT industry
    Nice kitchen
    Accounts team

    Cons

    All the good reviews on here are fake. I know of some consultants (managements' favourites) to wtite good reviews about them. The marketing at Montash also puts up fake reviews as I've heard directly from my manager. They are fooling people, listen to people who are/have worked here, the negative reviews are not fake, they are real stories of how people are being atreated by this horrible organisation. If this place was so great, then why are people leaving so fast? I know of people planning to leave in the next few weeks and months. They don't build careers here they build conveyor belt robots. Its all about money for them not ethics or how they treat their staff. I have been continuesly lied to from day one, all that was promised in my interview, appraisal has not materialised and yet I have hit every target and achieved every goal. MD at Montash wake up and smell the coffee, you're not running a great company here, you're running a factory of robots.

    Also notice how to every negative review there are about two positive reviews in response to their bad review.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management need to start listening to its staff and deliver on promises and not feed them lies.

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

    Pros

    Free fruits.
    Free breakfast on Friday's.
    Back Office Team.
    Location.

    Cons

    Only consider joining Montash if you have experience recruiting in highly KPI driven agency. There are plenty of recruitment agencies around that will support you and help set you up for success in this field (through the good and bad days) - but I wouldn't consider Montash as one of those agencies.
    Montash is very results driven; if you're billing, you're fine. As soon as you have a few bad months, you can pretty much start packing your bags. Associates are disposable to them so you can imagine how high staff turnover is.

    It isn't all bad though. If you're lucky to fall within Martin or Matt's Team, leverage their wealth of knowledge in recruitment and their market. They're both amazing managers but there's only so much they can do to support you. Ultimately money speaks louder so you need to continuously bill.

    I worked at Montash full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent managing director who has joined from the Adecco group. Roy has brought in lots of new ideas for the best and I truly believe Montash will be a big player in the game in a few years time.

    Montash are growing very quickly and making some key hires acrosd the floor with lots of experience. By 2020 they would have opened offices globally. Exciting times ahead...

    Cons

    No cons. I left for personal reasons...
    Location for me wasn't the best but that obviously comes down to preference.

    Advice to Management

    Since joining montash, Roy has also brought in a management team that sit across on the floor. Keep up the good work guys!
