    I worked at Resourcing Life Science full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I just used this place to build up my experience in recruitment, they are so desperate that they will hire anyone, after they let their best consultants go.

    Location is central.

    Cons

    After all I've seen in this place, I don't even know from where to start. I did see racism, discrimination with minorities, previous employees harassment, registering companies (where actually no one works, and everything is controlled by the managers at the Resourcing life-science's office) just to be able to use them with candidates as they have special clauses in their contract with the clients that don't allow them to headhunt people from the mentioned clients, and last but not least creating fakes candidates e-mail accounts to send them to the clients to keep in touch on their behalf (none of them suspect a thing).

    When you enter this place, everything looks fine, but give yourselves a month and everything will come up. You will see how they will change their behavior and start treating you like a machine.
    I saw people being called "money makers" and people falling a sick, with depression. Forget a nice lunch with your colleagues, you will all have different lunchtimes just because they are afraid that you will talk about them.

    My advice is: WALK OUT FROM THERE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

    P.S.: THE ONLY ONE WHO GETS COMMISSION IS THE CURRENT ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR (BESIDES THE OTHER 2 MANAGERS)

    Advice to Management

    Stop working in recruitment, shut down your business and dedicate yourselves to something else (like cycling, etc).

    Pros

    Location, people that i worked with (if there is anyone still there).

    Cons

    The worst company ever. I dont advise to accept any offer from them as they just care about the money and placements. They make you feel less than a human. They are very manipulative and they do not allow you to speak to any of your collegues. You are not even allow to have lunch with your collegues if they can see you have a good relationship with them.
    They effect your personality negatively and they do not provide any training that would be useful.

    Advice to Management

    Be human! This environment is the most disgusting place i have ever experienced. Talk to people like they are human and create a friendly, positive atmosphere. Let them to have lunch together and speak with each other. Nothing good comes from fear and its very easy to tell you are scared and you are not good enough. Dont give up on people...improve them!!! Make them feel special and believe in them as they are the most valuable part of the company and not just "money makers".

    Pros

    There is an excellent team environment and all members including the senior team and helpful and approachable. All the team make a massive effort to accommodate new people.
    There is a very strong focus on customer delivery which leaves a good feeling that things are being done right and for the right reasons. (This is contrary to my previous recruitment experiences).
    Hot desks and a very good market to recruit into
    Very strong commission

    Cons

    Extra hours necessary at times
    Office is quite a commute
    It‘s a very busy environment

    Advice to Management

    Resist the desire to hire too quickly

    I worked at Resourcing Life Science (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Location
    Relationship with other interns

    Cons

    Manager's behaviour makes people feel very unconfortable, a lot of humiliations.
    No room for creativity, every step you make is checked by the company. If they are in the bad mood, better shut up, do your job and run home without a word.
    No permission for eating and having luch break with colleaugues, no room for talking NEVER.
    A lot of humiliations I would like to underline, slaves treatment...they don't evaluate people at all.
    They shout on you even for small mistakes, in front of all the colleagues instead of letting you understand what you've done wrong.

    Advice to Management

    You'd better treat people as human being. If you hire interns (not payed) to teach them a job, you are supposed to TEACH! and interns are not supposed to know everything from the very first day!

    I worked at Resourcing Life Science as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing good except location- quite central and easy to get by public transport...

    Cons

    Very bad management:

    Treating people like slaves
    CEO (male) and manager (female) are pure racists - always talking bad about muslims and make jokes of this religion.
    Killing all your personality
    Controlling every single step you do
    Forcing you to do extra hours and not paying for it
    Talking bad behind your back with other colleagues
    Forcing you to use fake names, emails, lie to people ect
    Not letting employees to have lunch together or communicate in any case
    Treating interns like they r mentally sick.

    Please think twice before talking to them.

    Advice to Management

    No comment.

    No good reasons to work there

    Cons

    Management , they need brainless people , don't keep word ,

    Advice to Management

    You need s lot of work around how you treat people from the first meeting. It's not misery that makes people leave bad comments about you. It's actually your behaviour and lack of responsibility and facing the situation. When you interview people and offer a job you should stick to it or at least call back with a good explanation instead of avoiding answers. It's not bitterness or misery (your favourite word) it's called fairness- Google definition.

    Pros

    Teach you how to sell anything to anyone

    Cons

    No respect to employees and even partners, long working hours, every move is watched, no place for the initiative, treat you like slaves/nothing and expect this to motivate you. They do everything possible to prevent employees from communicating with each other even after hours. They are afraid and nothing good comes from fear, as you know.

    Advice to Management

    Read books about management, join some courses. Stop lying to future employees and deleting posts here :)

    I have been working at Resourcing Life Science full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good company the senior staff and directors are passionate about their search methods and the customers they support. The company is doing very well, there is a large demand for their services and they have good relationships with the clients and candidates.
    Communication is good with information about clients and company initiatives readily shared.
    Eye opening training programme nicely delivered with lots of appropriate support without being overbearing.
    Very strong and transparent commission structure, there are some genuinely big earners here. As in the words of one of the directors “if you do a good job for my customers you will get paid very well”

    Cons

    The managers are very picky about who they take and I think they would benefit from relaxing this policy so they could get more people through the door so they can work for more clients
    When you start they appear quite secretive about their operating processes but it all becomes apparent after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
