    I worked at Aspire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was at Aspire for 6.5 years and it was great. I could not do what I do now with out there training and support- I left as I needed a change but the team, management and support is some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Great flexibility for senior staff not so much on the more mid level side and can be a bit 'cliquey' but in a company that size is not that bad - over all great working environment

    Advice to Management

    Keep saying thank you to your staff and keep up the training

    I have been working at Aspire full-time

    Pros

    Learnt a lot, great offices, good benefits and some amazing people. Has been able performance rather than 100% KPI focused

    Cons

    Change in splits means 10% loss in commission / earning. Constant forced changes cause added stress and more work load. Sense of pressure from above to reach unrealistic targets. Bonus structure isn't competitive.

    I worked at Aspire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed my time at Aspire, I worked alongside some incredible colleagues and worked with inspiring clients. Aspire do things quite differently from other recruitment agencies, both within the digital and media space, and also in general. Everyone lives and breathes the company's values, and there is a real sense of collaboration. They are also forward-thinking, are quick to realize the flaws in the ways recruitment is traditionally done, and are quick to change and adapt in order to best service their clients and candidates.
    Excellent branding and marketing, and they make sure you have all the tools needed to reach potential clients and candidates.
    Training is great, combination of on- and off-desk.
    Perks are brilliant (flexi-time was a life saver, and I'm going to miss the monthly massages!)

    Cons

    Don't really have any, just keep doing what you're doing!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, don't be afraid of change, and keep shining :)

    I have been working at Aspire full-time

    Pros

    Lovely office environment the minute I joined, everyone is very welcoming.
    Management always there to offer support and help you make progression.
    The 1-1 meetings offered are taken very seriously and help you to push yourself, you always feel like you are being listened to.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to comment on so far.
