    I have been working at Pro-Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Fantastic team - Plentiful and structured training - Structured guidance - A company with 'ears' for their employees, from suggestion boxes to monthly company meetings with anonymous feedback - Big billing potential - Niche markets - An ACTUAL culture. A lot of companies talk about great culture, when actually they just mean a trip to Barcelona for the weekend. Here, you actually are the culture. - Flexible working....

    Cons

    - Only I can think of is that it's a fairly sized team and a lot of people have been here for some time, so it can be gutting to see someone you know and like leave.

    Advice to Management

    Crack on, it's been a pleasure starting here.

    Pros

    Cons

    - Constant KPI pressure even when you achieve your set targets and your are not valued no matter how you perform in the role. - Very accusatory environment, with no real acceptable answer for your management, and constant lying and threats. Too much bad mouthing. Bringing personal matters to work acting inappropriately with other members of the company.
