    I have been working at Computer People part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at CP for 6 years and in that time have been promoted 4 times. The company reward great performance from lunch-clubs to winners trips abroad, and they are achievable. They really don't have a hire and fire policy like some recruitment agencies. Once they invest in you they really support you. It is a really fun culture and environment. No micromanagement which suits me (but I realise may not suit some). The commission scheme is awesome.

    Cons

    If you need micromanaging to motivate yourself then this isn't the place for you. The database needs data-cleansing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need - management actually take on board the ideas of the staff and have hunt groups for people to speak out. They already know my advice :)

    I worked at Computer People full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary and commission structures they can offer are some of the best in Bristol (where there is a very high volume of recruitment agencies).
    Great team of people.
    Support and training available, if you ask for it

    Cons

    The database system they use is very outdated and clunky, a source of many frustrations for everyone.
    Working well in to the night or weekends can and does go unrecognised, while a later start in the morning is picked up on regardless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more £££ in rewards for your staff. Before Adecco took over the high-performer trips were a great incentive and other companies still offer those. Miami > golf day in UK.
