    I have been working at Opus Professional Services Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Opus for 4 years starting as a trainee, going through the ranks to a Principal Consultant with many success stories along the way. Hard work and dedication is rewarded and nothing goes unnoticed with the senior management team even as the company grows to the levels it has now. The company strives to be bigger and better than its competition every single day and in my opinion gives every person that joins the platform they need to become whoever they want to be by giving them the very best tools the industry has to offer to succeed. The company has grown from around 25 people to 250+ in the 4 years I have been there but even with such high levels of growth they have stayed well grounded and leave no stone unturned in their exploits to become the global leader in the recruitment game. Opus are innovators in the recruitment space and there is certainly no other company I would rather work for as every day is different, the people are amazing and new opportunities are forever arising giving their employees the chance to further expand their earning potential and career. With Darren Ryemill at the helm, the company can achieve whatever it desires as he is probably the most aspirational and hard working leader I have met and he realises there are no boundaries to what you or Opus can achieve which makes it a very exciting place to work.

    Cons

    The only "cons" so to speak are that if you aren't willing to work hard it's not the right environment for you. Opus will provide you the platform to become the best version of yourself, but with the high levels of growth and where the company are going, you need to want to achieve the same as everyone else and be on the same page to not be left behind as it's a company that offers a lot of opportunity and can offer you everything you desire as long as you give them hard work and commitment in return. They strive to be the best so you should too!

    Pros

    Opus is a company that recognises talent. If you work hard, regardless of whether you're sales or non-sales, they will take care of you. They reward those that show passion for the company and their role, which is only fair - you get out what you put in.

    They truly reward you and take care of you if you give it you're all - that's why the company is made up of inspiring and hard working people; they belong there. It is a truly winning company and you'd be lucky to be a part of their journey.

    Cons

    You need to be open and honest with the Managers - if you don't say anything, they can't listen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, act and learn :)

    Pros

    Good comisson structure (can make a LOT of money)
    Great working environment
    Support around you to help you get to the best

    Cons

    Long hours can be exhausting at times, but that's more linked to the industry then Opus as a business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the morale up in teams - it's a hard slog, that is so much easier when your happy in the environment!

    Pros

    Opus is a really quality business with some really great managers and consultants. Good incentives and good spirit. The company has a really high standard and is very elite but if you want to do well and earn some good money it's the place to be.

    Cons

    Maybe make some incentives more achievable for trainees

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and thank you for a great experience

    Pros

    You really feel part of something here. Opus is the fastest growing recruitment start up (5 years running on Virgin Fast Track), and there is a real shared sense of achievement and direction from the top level all the way down. Still small enough to feel like you can stand out and make a difference, but big enough to have all the good perks and incentives of a corporate.

    Cons

    Not really a con if you have the right attitude - but success comes at a price. This isn't the place for you if you want an easy ride and not give your all. People here work hard, put the hours in, and help each other to success. Not being a team player won't go unnoticed.

    I worked at Opus Professional Services Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Unbelievable environment - supportive colleagues and managers (we were like a family)
    -Excellent training (joined the company with no experience at all)
    -Transparent commission structure and career progression
    -Crazy incentives (Miami, Vegas, Play Stations, Lunch Clubs, Bonuses, etc)
    -Strong career progression with realistic targets
    -Really high standards in terms of dress code, work-ethic, etc
    -Great culture

    Cons

    -Some people will say long hours ( 8-18, with an hour lunch) but I don't think is that bad, after all, if you're seeking to start a career in recruitment and you're complaining about long hours, you're probably in the wrong industry

    Pros

    You are working in an environment where everyone wants to be successful and will work as hard as they need to to get there.
    The directors still have a large input to all employee from trainees to team leads even though they have multi offices and countries to cover.
    Incentives are great - who else offers a Porsche for a year?
    The CEO is on of the most inspiring people you will meet. He has a plan and you know he will achieve it.
    Progression is there for those who want it with new roles becoming available all the time both in the UK or internationally

    Cons

    Yes the hours can be long but that is recruitment - sometimes you need to get in early or late to speak to candidates
    Covering the phones on lunch is a bit annoying

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard. Opus is going in the right direction and big things are round the corner
