    I have been working at Bright Purple Resourcing full-time

    Pros

    Progressive, wilfully not like the competition. Flexible working hours. 5pm finish. Modern Offices. UK and International work and live accounts. Informed people. Fun. Fantastic Location. Possibly the best commission structure around. Structured Learning. A place where professional people can have a career and advance skills and knowledge of business. This is SME with big culture and vision in action.

    Cons

    You need to be smart and inquisitive. To understand how the business operates and what it really is requires business acumen. Not for people that just want to order take.

    Advice to Management

    Hire lots more smart people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bright Purple Resourcing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    City center office, close to Greggs.

    Cons

    Management look down their nose at you from their pedestal. No communication on what is going on with the business. Nasty emails sent to staff in the early hours of the morning by the MD. Despite what they claim, the commission structure is outdated and not in-line with the current market. This is definitely a place to avoid.

    Advice to Management

    No point in suggesting anything. Management think they know everything despite a stampede of staff out of the doors.

    Pros

    I worked at Bright Purple Resourcing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Been around for a long time. Nice office. Made some good friends.

    Cons

    Got tired of being talked at by directors of the sister company telling us what to do and what the future hold. Lots of talking but they never deliver and no clients buying it. CEO sends random 'motivational' emails at odd times of nite. Was probably once a great agency but poor leadershop mean best people see through the big talk and chaos and left. Funny how there are lots of sucesfull ex-employees and directors...
