Flexibility you can add or remove more appropriate benefits, increase cover, add dependents
The commission scheme was really good. It was not capped, also the pension scheme was great.
Comprehensive flexible benefits package but salary and bonuses are not as competitive as others
The benefits package has seen a huge revamp over the last couple of years and as a result, is a lot more flexible and allows you to tailor your package to suit what works for your lifestyle and remove what doesn't.
Best thing - Good base salaries compared to other recruitment agencies.
GOod overall benefits, commissions could be better
car allowance, health insurance, pension, perks
Lack of transparency of bonus structure and very low levels of bonus paid to consultants as a percentage of sales levels.
Good pension contribution and health insurance, less holiday days that the average
Best thing: you get to go on "high flighers" holidays each quarter if you are one of the top performers to places like Majorca.. however many of them aren't as luxury as other recruitment companies and I'm pretty sure they all fly with Ryanair (you'd think with Michael Page's budget and profits they could afford a good treat) Worst thing: £40,000 fee threshold for michael page employees in a quarter. Even if you made £35,000 for the company in fees, you still wouldn't make a penny of commission - not very motivating when the whole reason you do the job is for commission. Especially considering the fact you work 10 hour days
