    I have been working at Hays full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A true meritocracy. Work hard and you will be rewarded. If you need help, Hays offers continuous learning right from trainee up to the President level. An opportunity to forge your own career path with clear targets and achievements at each level. Hays also offered me, and many other people I know in the company the chance to work overseas. A very collaborative team who are always looking out for each other.

    Cons

    Definitely not the right environment for someone who isn't interested in a highly competitive and target driven environment. Its a skill short market in Canada so there's a constant battle to find the best talent for our clients. You have to be prepared to work hard to get the results for your clients and candidates
