    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time

    Pros

    Great support from Leadership team. Competition starts outside these four walls mantra. Excellent support for working mums, great package and a very friendly place to work. Family type atmosphere, great work being done with CSR and a real sense that we're all in this together. Excellent ongoing training, open door policy, very approachable Senior Leadership, great incentives and big billers are really well rewarded. Excellent career pathway and visible progression at your fingertips. There's a no overtime culture which is refreshing in agency recruitment and when people are struggling, there's a very supportive group of people to help.

    Cons

    Communication can be somewhat haphazard and not filtered down through the business. Maternity leave policy could be much better.

    Advice to Management

    In such a competitive market, it would be great if the overall package apart from salary/commission could be rewarded.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Morgan McKinley is an excellent company to work for for people who want to develop a career in Recruitment. They have a very competitive commission structure with uncapped earning potential. The training for new and existing people is second to none and the ongoing support they give to their staff is exceptional. Career progression and developing their people is something they feel strongly about. Everyone is constantly looking out for each other and there is that great sense of community within the company.

    Cons

    No downsides come to mind

    Advice to Management

    Keep on improving, never settle.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Morgan McKinley has global presence, but it is not one of the largest recruitment firm around.
    The aim is not to become the largest, but provide the best service to the area we are operating.
    I believe our Banking & Financial Service recruiters are the best in the Tokyo Market.

    Some of the factors which makes us different is ;
    Long Term Strategy ( Discussing our business plan for 2020 currently )
    Flat culture ( easy access to senior management, including our CEO )
    Consultative approach ( Not CV factory )
    Team based culture ( No candidate ownership policy )
    Great Training ( Junior level to even MD level )
    Diversity ( Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, Bangladesh, American in the same team )
    CSR Commitment ( participate FIT for Charity Run every year etc )

    And Morgan McKinley Tokyo offers great social life.
    Monthly Free Friday, BBQ in the roof top garden in the office, Incentive trips to enjoy Surf ( beach at Guam ) & Turf ( ski at Nozawa Oncen, Nagano ) etc.

    We know each other well, and we go out a lot together.
    We work hard, we party harder.

    Cons

    As Tokyo team grew, the office space is limited for everyone.
    But, I am aware the senior management team are discussing the plan to solve.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the great vision and values we have.
