    I have been working at Talent Search People full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Direct contact with international clients. Managers really trust you. Your coworkers are also your friends, the working environment is very positive and challenges you to get better at your work.

    Cons

    1.5 lunch hours / day, which could be less and get out earlier.

    I worked at Talent Search People full-time

    Pros

    International team of colleagues who also chose to work for TSP since they wanted to live in Bcn.

    Cons

    Low quality of recruitment skillset among very junior people, not trained properly. Lowest ethical standards I have seen, hiring people when more projects and firing from one day to another when less projects. Connections help to get promoted, big egos and chasing money is what matters. Half of the staff are interns or close to interns.

    Advice to Management

    The human aspect is missing, both as to treating employees and candidates in the process. Plan your human resources wisely ahead of time and either hire experienced ppl or provide much better training to interns. Offer fair salary!

    Pros

    Good people and good offices

    Cons

    219/5000 Very low salaries, a lot of pressure, very junior managers without respect for the workers. There is no medium-term strategy, everything changes day by day and the directors do not understand this business They don't take care of their workers

    Advice to Management

    If you don't know how to run a business, hire someone who knows how to do it

    Pros

    Its a nice place( colleges wise), you will learn a lot in a fast environment. If you like challenges you will enjoy it a lot.

    Cons

    High stress level, they will ask you to do overtime (for free obviously) otherwise you are not a good worker. The commissions are almost unreachable and if in one quarter you don’t reach 100% of your objective you will have to make it up for the rest in the next quarter... if you get along with your boss you might stay for more than 3 months...high turn over of employment is really unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep seniority in the company, your clients will appreciate it. Stop building wall for people to reach their targets and help them by giving more training.

    I worked at Talent Search People full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - You can work with final clients (some of them are really good) - Co-workers - Working there open your doors to new opportunities

    Cons

    - I think that the big problem with that company is that it once was a great company to work because it had great people there which make a lot of money and create excelent teams. This people had a lot of pression to keep doing even more money and they left. Now the company is understanding the true nature of the bosses and sadly, it's not what it was anymore (that's why I left). - They ask you to make 8k/15k for month and they pay you 16,5k for year. The surrealistic part is that they act as if they were doing you a favour. - ANYONE with responsabilities there has ANY idea of what are they doing. They have had a lot of talented people in their teams and they just let them go without moving a finger for them. Sometimes this situations are surrealistic. This is the main problem of this company. - All the"good" things that they do are ideas from people that has left the company and they are not appying it correctly, which makes sense. - Working hours are bad: from 8:30 to 18:30. Their concept of flexible working hours is unreal. If you arrive at 8:35 you have to leave at 7:00. - They fire people who work hard while they tell you that they will never do that. - They want you to make A LOT of money without investing any single euro.

    Advice to Management

    If you want Talent, which makes a lot of sense, you should want to retain that talent. This makes even more sense. Being big it's not about earning a lot a paying nothing. Everyone could be a master businessman with that attitude, even a little kid. The truth is that you need people to trust in you and that they feel valued to create a big company
