    Great people led by the most ill-informed, greedy and destructive senior management team I have ever witnessed.

    Pros

    Good training, good employee incentive schemes that reward strong performance and a relatively mature manner in dealing with people. If you generate sales for the company, you will be looked after well. They also have global reach which has its advantages in pitching for major client wins.

    Cons

    The foundation of the company is to provide strong recruitment services. To that end, they deliver well but the greed of the Board and Senior Management prevents hiring expertise and simply forces them to hire inexperienced low-cost consultants to service the lowest end of the market.

    Senior management have invested over £50m on a database that simply does not work in order to provide global Management Information. However, very few people actually use the system for anything other than producing an invoice, so the information senior management see, is completely flawed. This was a great company, that is now being run by idiots. Chief of which is a CEO who has been fired from his last 2 jobs and has never worked a day as a recruitment consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and listen to the people on the shop floor. Stop wasting enormous amounts of money on technology that is already light-years behind the competition. Instead, invest the savings in hiring better Consultants who can mentor, develop and retain the best consultants in the market and transform the reputation of the business.
