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

    Pros

    I was promoted to a Senior Consultant within my first 12 months due to the support and clear progression planning which came from a talented leader and learning and development team.

    Cons

    Recruitment is a competitive industry and in my market, it was particularly tough, however that isn't to do with OA. The systems are dated, however I know they are investing in a new system this year.

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

    Pros

    They are fun yet professional, they are knowledgable yet not pretentious, they are approachable and caring. They are passionate not only in what they do but in the development of their staff. They train well, they invest in their consultants and they recognise good performance. They ensure you are constantly challenged whilst providing the perfect level of support.

    Cons

    The hours were longer than the 'standard' office hours, however I feel these hours were necessary to deliver the requirement results. Their targets were sometimes extremely high, but again necessary to challenge even accomplished consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just award the 'top' performers, as these tend to always be from the same branch so they same people get rewarded. Introduce awards/recognition to the smaller, lower billing branches as the consultants there have to work as hard if not harder to achieve the same results. Awards should be given on desks that have been inherited but on the growth of the desk during the consultants employment.

    I worked at Office Angels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    helped me to rebuild my confidence and skills set within a calmed relaxed atmosphere
    I felt welcomed from the moment I walked through the door and the hours were flexible so I can arrange to help at home. the staff of office angels were so easy and open to speak to and when id been there for three years and an opportunity came for me to join the company I was placed with there encouraged me to apply for the position and helped with my application when and where needed. I can honestly say that without office angels I wouldn't have the life I do today.

    Cons

    in my three years with the company I can very easily say without hesitation that there wasn't a single time I could of been upset or felt that there weren't there for me in everyway and cant fault there efforts they do such much to make sure we can get two and from a place as well help with travel costs I would recommended this company always and have done to many of friends and old colleges looking for work. some of which who have taken on jobs and are still with them today .

    Advice to Management

    just keep up the great work and maybe put yourself out there more with tv adverts and job/career fares help promote place your internet sites


  4. "Consultant"

    I have been working at Office Angels full-time

    Pros

    There are many recruitment organisations to choose to work for, and I have worked in a few of them. Office Angels as a business to work for, stands out from the crowd. The business (although part of a large corporate organisation) still feels like a small independent company, where everyone is recognised as a person and not a number. The business embraces, encourages and celebrates success. A great place to work!

    Cons

    Very little in negative to say about such a great business! Commission structures have changed and not for the better!

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

    Pros

    Lots of encouragement within branch, healthy competition within region, recognition is given where due within region.

    Cons

    Company-wide awards are skewed towards London branches. Head office changes are not made known to staff - shared services such as marketing have no contacts and no ideas

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open with staff and communication any changes or expectations

    Pros

    Caring and helpful, friendly staff, willing to help with anything you might need. I really liked their user-friendly system as well, very convenient.

    Cons

    Didn't see any major cons, though it would be nice of them to be giving more employment opportunities.

    Pros

    Office Angels is a loyal and dedicated employer - they back their employees 100%. Pay is very fair and bonus schemes are second to none.

    Cons

    Being part of a big group (the Adecco group) has its pros, but also cons. Although it doesn't affect day to day working life.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly, organised and accommodating company.
    They understood my skills and my employment needs (I was just looking for office experience over the summer) and were very efficient in matching me with an ideal role.

    Cons

    After registering with Office Angels, it took a few weeks to find me a position, but it showed that they were waiting to find a role that would suit me in terms of my skills and abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the candidates updated with any possible opportunities and progress in finding them a role. Otherwise, management were great and friendly.

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

    Pros

    - Constant curtness calls made, I feel well looked after and appreciated.
    - I came out of one job, straight into this one, so no gap in employment
    - Clients are all impeccable and lovely to work for
    - Improves CV because of the companies you work with
    - I felt in control of the placements and requirements needed

    Cons

    - Delayed in getting paid when I first started; worked all bank Holiday weekend, Friday- Tuesday and only got paid 2 weeks later. Not a huge con though, just timing.

    Advice to Management

    More employee discounts or benefits maybe
