    I worked at SThree full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the 1 and a half years I worked with the company. The training program was always changing and adapting to the need in the office. The people in the company really made my experience as there was a diverse group and they were extremely inclusive and you always would have someone to grab lunch with, a coffee, a beer or someone for some friendly advice. The management was great as all of the managers had started as fresh graduates and had built the business up. My personal situation meant I needed flexibility for some time off and my management worked with me for that without questions. Anyone looking for a successful career should consider Sthree. Also the office views are out of this world!

    Cons

    I never really experienced any down sides when I worked there

    Advice to Management

    Keep the diversity going! Be known for hiring out the box and this will give you the edge over other companies!

    I have been working at SThree full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Fully meritocratic environment: I've been with the business almost 5 years now and been promoted 4 times during that period. I have also had the opportunity to relocate from our London HQ to Chicago with the firm immensely supportive of this move. I have profited from the limitless ability to influence the direction and trajectory of my career and my earnings. I cant wait for the future!
    - Sociable inclusive working environment and culture: Not many companies allow me to involve my Fiancé in everything we do.
    - The learning and development for the US team sit in our Chicago office (Huxley has a number of offices across the country) and thus we regularly advantage of this. This L&D team was recently voted into the prestigious Training Magazines top 125 organizations for 2017.
    - I have made many long lasting friendships from working at SThree

    Cons

    I have no negatives. I have been with the company for almost 5 years and can't wait for the next 5 years to come.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The flexibility and adaptability of this team continues to guide the office in a positive direction.

    I worked at SThree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Excellent career opportunities. I was promoted three times in three years!
    -Fun, energetic office. Gorgeous space with incredible views of the Bay.
    -Fantastic new commission structure that rewards everybody involved in making a placement. Top earners make above of $200k.

    -It can take a while to figure out your market and start making regular commission, so living on a base salary can be tough (but once you start seeing commission, it's worth it)
    -Managers are stretched to capacity

    Advice to Management

    -Base salary should be reviewed at junior level

    Pros

    The best culture, great base and commission plans.
    The incentive trips are amazing, not to mention the people you get to work with are some of the coolest people I've met. The values this company has taught me will resonate forever in my personal and professional life.
