    More training for newbies.
    It's a poor environment so that could do with some improvement.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to earn a significant commission package.

    Cons

    Merit is limited to personal sales levels.
    Absence of any kind of intellectual stimulation.
    Aggressive environment, an extremely high employee turnover rate.
    Consultants lack knowledge of the industries they hire for.
    No opportunity to develop expertise, your career will be limited to HR/recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the advice given in the RHI Management publication- at present it's all stick, no carrot, and every man for himself.
