    I worked at Approach People Recruitment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are friendly, young, and mostly fun and easy going. There is a good respect for the clients and candidates, and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no long term vision from the management, with directors who keep changing the "vision". So by the time we start a new strategy, it has already been dropped or changed in a confusing mix of small sub projects. It ends up being very hard to do what is right for your market, therefore hard to reach the financial goals in a very competitive market. The bonus compensation is source of continuous conflict...

    Advice to Management

    Pick an identity, don't try to copy Michael Page and Hays on Monday, and give a speech on how we are different and special on Thursday. Change the bonus policy to where everyone strives for the same thing!

    Pros

    I have never worked for an organization where you are continuously recognized for the hard work you put it. The work you do for this organization definitely does not go unnoticed. This is an organization where you will learn a lot, make money, and build great friendships if you come in with a positive attitude and a motivated mind set!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con but advice to anyone reading this, if you are not a hard worker, and do not want to do more work and go above and beyond for a company that can do so much for you, then this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice that I can think about for the moment. If I have anything to say to management I know I can talk to them directly any day.

    I have been working in approach people for three years now. It has been an excellent step in my career and has instilled in me a passion for work I never had before in my previous jobs.

    Pros

    Inclusive work environment with a great culture. Great leadership, supportive & challenging in equal measures. Clear progression plans are on offer if you are willing to work for it Strong commission structure. Rewarded and acknowledged for hard work regardless of billings Great social team organizing events to cater for all team members . I genuinely love my job and there are not many people that can say that nowadays.

    Cons

    Very few things to complain about. Would be great if we had the option to choose between normal desk and standing desk but thats just me being very picky !

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being approachable and available. Great to see that you give as much attention and care to all levels of staff.
