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

    Pros

    * In the public sector, MH is well regarded on all the PSL's etc.

    * Commission scheme changed to pay in the month you bill rather than at end of Q which is good. Also, it's a simple to understand commission scheme.
    *Work/life balance better than other places. Not sure if it changed though in 2017 it was 9am-5.30pm or 8.30am-5pm which meant that you had time to go to gym etc or get home and see family. Might have changed though.

    Cons

    * In the private sector, promises made and never kept.
    * Not great commission scheme. Top billers are not rewarded at all. Became a KPI culture - was a shame as it never used to be like that.
    * Senior management / directors use KPIs as a stick with which to beat people. The KPIs are nonsensical too.

    Advice to Management

    * Treat employees like people, not number generators. Figures only present one part of the picture; there's much more to it than that.
    * Would have recommended to a friend for sure though that all changed when you started firing an entire HR department, an entire back office staff, sales staff who didn't make enough placements, and basically looking for cost savings. Business first and the desire to really grow people as people was lost once the place grew too big... When I started off there was much smaller and friendlier. Victim of own success maybe? Then overspent on renting a lovely building and everyone else has to pay for it while Directors are coining it.

    Pros

    They had yearly awards which are nice, as its good to reward hard work.

    Cons

    Very poor management and senior management was appalling. People were being pushed out for no reason, and targets were always unrealistic.

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

    Pros

    Morgan Hunt has a good reputation in the public sector
    There are a handful of excellent, respectable consultants to look up to

    Cons

    Where to start.
    The company bangs on about its values, but most of the staff don't display any -
    constant 'water cooler' gossip and managers are rude about team members in meetings. Quite possibly the least professional management team I've come across.

    Rather than getting rid of these people, teams are just restructured which just moves the problem somewhere else.

    As such, there is incredibly poor morale amongst corporate services with many looking to leave or have left.

    The marketing team don't do anything to help support sales team other than managing advert spend - they didn't run a single campaign to support the division in my time there.

    Dreadful commission structure

    Dreadful basic salaries

    No notable benefits

    Advice to Management

    Review your workforce and remove the unprofessional people if you really wish to implement your values and have a company where people look forward to coming to work

    I have been working at Morgan Hunt part-time

    Pros

    Timesheet online system. Friendly attitude of staff.

    Cons

    Lack of follow up calls.
    Ineffective calls asking for information you hold.
    No visible service to demonstrate the efforts made to match candidates with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Candidates working through this agency not treated as clients.
    Ensure agents check background on candidates before phoning.
    Your database should tell you what my current situation is.
    Ensure follow ups.

    Pros

    Respected name in the market with great progression. Understanding board of directors that provide you with support to be successful (special mentions to Chris & Frazier).

    Great teamwork always putting a team first, ahead of personal success. A professional and respectful organisation from front to back office that values and encourages its employees.

    There are always company wide events, MD addresses, seasonal parties, weekly in house competitions and a real feel for teamwork and fun!

    Cons

    Honestly there are none, this could change but all good at the moment.

    Pros

    Easy placement. Large agency. There are many departments to suit the needs f applicants.

    Cons

    Account Managers rarely return calls. Workers are severely underpaid. Your concerns will go unheeded. Account Managers are only solicitous when it benefits them.
