    Pros

    Strong brand name in their markets
    MD's are extremely approachable and knowledgeable
    The company's marketing team is very good
    Encouraged massively to cross sell and work with different departments to find opportunities

    Cons

    The CRM is a bit clunky
    The training is a bit old school

    Advice to Management

    Maybe lessen a little bit with the KPI's - it can feel a bit micro managed at times. However theres a good team ethic thats been created and it feels like a happy place to work.

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Structured Career Development
    Excellent team ethic
    Not a micro managed environment
    Given time to develop when you join

    Cons

    Company incentives are few and far between
    Commission scheme is a bit complicated

    Advice to Management

    Day to day the company is a fantastic place to work. If I was to be fussy I'd say it's a little bit KPI heavy and there are a lot of reports to do, but in all management is supportive, processes are smooth, theres a positive vibe in the office and things feel good.
    The only thing that the company lacks is a few more team building activities outside of working hours - some incentives to reach etc wouldn't harm. And one of the first things I was told when I got into recruitment is "if you need a spreadsheet to work out commission, it probably isn't a good scheme" - it would be good to run a much simpler scheme that people understood properly.
