    I have been working at G2 Legal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From the moment I crossed paths with G2 Legal in the recruitment field, I was left with a lasting impression. I knew straight away that this was a company I wanted to work for. -The CEO and MD are wonderful. Compassionate, understanding, encouraging and approachable. -The team managers, consultants and support staff are the best! Everyone encourages each other, listens to your concerns and gives good advice and are there to share the ups and downs of recruitment. -The learning & development team are second to none and help you learn invaluable skills that encourage you to be the best recruiter you can be. -No strict KPI’s, micromanagement or unrealistic targets!! -Time and money spent on staff so you can be rewarded for hard work and efforts (not only the top billers!). -Good commission structure with the potential to earn double commission once billed a certain amount p/a. -Modern and central offices with good transport links nearby. -An agency highly recommended by clients and candidates across the UK!

    Cons

    -9:00 am - 5:30 pm working hours. It would be great if there was a little more flexibility and an option to work from home occasionally to allow the perfect work/life balance!

    I worked at G2 Legal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent modern work culture, which focuses on relationships with colleagues, fluidity and flexibility. Run by a superb managing director who always has time for you and your needs, no matter how busy she is.

    Cons

    I would have left this blank, but as cons are compulsory, my only complaint would be that: it was hard to keep staff in the team during my time in the admin team, as the admin starting salary was quite low. Despite this, there is ample opportunity to progress during time at the company.
