    IT equipment, WI-FI and resources need upgrading (or implementing).

    Keep doing what you're doing! But please also give some consideration to the IT facilities within the business.

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good training
    - Friendly atmosphere
    - Progression based on delivery
    - Plenty of choice with regards to sectors to work in
    - My personal management in IT were great
    - Good incentives if your billing

    Cons

    - Slow to change but I appreciate as a large business it's not easy
    - Corporate, it's not what I would go for now but may suit some people
    - Average commision structure with thresholds £4k-£7k a month
    - Poor marketing/ inbound lead generation
    - Cross selling wasn't the best

    Advice to Management

    - Senior executives should be more visible and do more with large accounts and filter work down to AD's and teams. There is so much untapped potential that your regular consultant probably doesn't have immediate access to even through BD.
    - Buy a new marketing team that understands marketing in 2018

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

    Pros

    If you like to skive it would be a good place to work, I guess.

    Cons

    The quality of the staff is, on the whole, really poor. The Scottish business was ultimately a collection of females with a real love for being drunk, a lot.
