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

    Pros

    I have been employed by Synarbor for the last 5 years and can say it is a great company to work for. The management team give you the support you need and will always try and help if its needed. The commission structure is very good and uncapped so you can earn as much as you want to earn.

    Cons

    Nothing major to report, the pros out weigh the cons

    Pros

    I have worked for Synarbor over the last five years, and although a lot is expected of you in order to succeed, this is nothing that isn't expected in any recruitment role.
    This is a forward thinking recruitment business where you truly will reap the rewards if you're prepared to put in the effort.
    With an exciting future ahead of us, I can only see an even better future for myself, with a supportive Senior Management team and a strong team spirit across the company, I look forward to an even brighter five years ahead!

    I have been working at Synarbor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Emma and her team work hard to support all their candidates. I feel honored to have meet them, who put me on the right path back to teaching, when I felt I had, had enough.
    Positive, professional, friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    Not the highest pay, but most reliable contracts

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Synarbor full-time

    Pros

    Synarbor is a large, successful Plc, but has retained its ethos and values with regards to its employees. Everyone in the business it here to support from Senior Management to Director level - and will work and support consultant directly. Everything is geared to making everyone successful and there are many ways in which the company recognises and rewards not only success but doing a really good job.
    The difference between other companies I have work for is that they put PEOPLE FIRST.
    A great company to work for!!!

    Cons

    So far I have found no cons - this is a great place to work.

    Pros

    I’ve been with Synarbor (working in a Supply Desk office) for 4 month now. So far I have found the local and regional staff very supportive to work with. Unlike other agencies I’ve found Synarbor offers the right level of structure and support, while managing to avoid the tendency to micro manage staff.
    If you’re looking for a company that will challenge and push you to develop as a consultant I would recommend this one.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected by management.

    I have been working at Synarbor full-time

    Pros

    Really good atmosphere in the office, good working environment, good management and opportunities for career progression

    Cons

    Could do with more training on the system, but this is minor as I am being taught as I go, I would also like more opportunity to challenge myself more

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

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

    Pros

    There are some great people employed by Synarbor that make the long working day a bit more tolerable (7am to 6pm)

    Cons

    There is no training on the role. The targets set n the short term should be set after a comprehensive training period that most recruitment companies provide

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your new starters

    I have been working at Synarbor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast pace environment to work in, ahead of the game/competition on most fronts so has the advantage over other companies which makes the job easier and more satisfying.
    Strong management team, willing to listen and take on board ideas and comments from all levels of staff. very open.

    Cons

    Long hours not suitable for everyone but does have rewards in respect to overall earning potential and as a we're based on school year, shorter hours in school breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open door policy for new ideas and comments
