    I have been working at Phaidon International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is few if any roles out there where by 26 Years of age you can earn the money you can earn here and get given the responsibility you can. 5 Years in the business and I have a team of 15+ with a view to grow this to double

    Cons

    Naturally long hours which means you may have to sacrifice other commitments, but that's part and parcel of recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and creating the clear pathways for people from associate to AD's!

    Organic growth organisation. Ability to relocate. Massive earning potentials. Market leader.

    I have been working at Phaidon International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at this company for over five years and can safely say it has given me s the most challenging and rewarding times in my career to date. Phaidon operates within a hugely competitive industry sector (Recruitment) and has focused on a business strategy which differentiates it from other more generalist firms. This is a tough industry- that is the reality- and not everyone survives and thrives -... but for those who do Phaidon International offers superb careers and accelerated promotion and career opportunities locally and globally. In my role now run a team and enjoy the fact that I get to go out of the office, internationally to spend time with clients, compared with my mates from Uni who have taken more traditional routes - I feel much more empowered and trusted. I enjoy the massive social side within our niche brand and on the plus side they look after you well. The big pros great commission, strong meaningful training, and I am building a team- have paid off my student loan. The smaller things all add up too- free drinks, fruit, loads of incentives and have made some great friends.

    Cons

    To succeed the sector requires total focus and dedication in the first year- it is incredibly tough so not for the faint hearted - but once you get through it, no gripes.

    Advice to Management

    Worth reminding people just how many things we do for staff - from the little things to helping them get amazing responsibility at an early age.

    I have been working at Phaidon International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great working environment - Amazing commission structure for hard-working consultants - Great training throughout your career - A hugely ambitious company that continues to grow year on year

    Cons

    The first 6 months as a graduate are always difficult but you have to be prepared for that when you join. Being on the ground floor of an office block in London in never the greatest feeling as it always seems a bit dark, especially in the winter, but that is meant to be changing soon. Hours are long but that is part of working in the City of London so it shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone who joins the... company

    I have been working at Phaidon International

    Pros

    In Zurich, there is definately a philosophy to make sure everyone enjoys their days and the success of work comes as a result. Skiing every weekend in the winter Lounging in the sun during the hot months (consistently +30C). Swimming at lunch in the lake/river. Family feel to the office, as everyone treats one another with respect like a family member. Incentives tailored just for the Swiss office. A lot... of opportunity to grow internally and then move abroad or to London at a certain level. Candidate and client appreication in Switzerland is really good and we often meet them in bars etc.

    Cons

    Cost of living (Food, both in restaurants and supermarkets) - you are rewarded to compensate though.
