    I worked at Computer Futures Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - A robust training program to get you hitting the ground running quickly - Great support system around you - Fun team and environment - Uncapped earning potential with a decent commission structure

    Cons

    - A lot of your early success is dependent on what market you are put on - Tough to make a decent amount of money in your first year (regardless of how good of a salesperson you are) - Not all employees get treated the same - Lack of transparency from upper management - Office drama is fairly common - High turnover rates

    Advice to Management

    I loved working here for the most part and I'm forever grateful for the opportunity that SThree gave me. But after being in a couple different recruitment environments, I've found that opportunity plays a large part of how successful you are, and not everyone is afforded the same opportunity in the current structure. If you get put on a relatively untested market, you're going to do worse than someone on a "hot market"....

    I have been working at Computer Futures Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great company that genuinely cares about personal development - Recently revised pay and commission structure which makes us very competitive against similar companies (they started these reviews from consultant/sales level initially which in my opinion shows great care) - Flexible working, remote working - Constant learning and development with regular training sessions and one to ones for those who require it...

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to feedback. There has been some massive changes over the past few years from listening to feedback and it’s certainly changes for the better, so great work!

      I worked at Computer Futures Solutions full-time

      Pros

      Good progression if you are cut throat enough

      Cons

      Pushing staff into recruiting methods they are uncomfortable with, such as door dropping, and being flippant about candidate data protection. It's a sales job to the core and purely about the money.

      Advice to Management

      Revise methods ahead of GDPR

      Pros

      Actual opportunity here vs other recruitment shops. Strong markets and great culture

      Cons

      Company confuses "entrepreneurial with hard working" a bit behind in the times when it comes to lead gen and support. Your success will depend on the market you are in.

      Advice to Management

      Double down on whats working and stop doubling down on whats not.
