    Approves of CEO

    I worked at ESA Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Fast paced environment with people that work hard - Plenty of autonomy - Sizeable pool of potential clients to go after - Significant earning potential if you perform well

    Cons

    - High pressure - Tough environment (but I guess that's the industry!)

    Advice to Management

    Try and direct some of the pressure away from the more junior stuff

    Advice to Management

    New approach to management of staff. Losing far too many staff - hire and fire culture. Miss-sold in the interview process.

    I worked at ESA Group full-time

    Pros

    Descent pay and bonus potential

    Cons

    Owner is incredibly small minded and severely lacking in how to run a sales floor effectively. Very hire and fire culture with next to no support given to descent recruiters. This is a case of many good recruiters in a bad agency.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and allow someone else to run your business for you.
