      Pros

      Amazing team work Despite being a FTSE250 business, the exposure to the Directors is really good. They're very approachable. Accomodating as much as possible Great incentives Training support given on request Lovely working environment Good career opportunities and a variety of options depending on your capability

      Cons

      There's a bit of a stigma, not just in this recruitment business but others too, to work longer hours than those on your contract. Overall, there's a lot of flexibility given at Page, and they're championing on wellbeing initiatives which aren't just tick box exercises. But sometimes on a smaller scale there's generally an expectation to work longer hours than contracted because 'thats what they've always done'. This is gradually improving though!

      Pros

      - Professional work environment - Great health insurance - A lot of learning and promotional opportunities and great resources

      Cons

      Not about the company, more to the nature of the job Being able to stay in touch and build relationships with candidates and/or clients is a rewarding part but it can be a draining job as well.

      Excellent career growth opportunity, flexible working hours, Play-hard work-hard culture

      21 Nov 2019 - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I started at Michael Page as an intern and got promoted over time to leading a team and constantly being valued for my contribution and commitment to the firm. Some of the ratings online just do not reflect our culture and team. Please see my experience over the last 2 years: Pros: - clear promotion and achievable bonus targets - potential to double your base salary with bonus incentives - constant effort from senior leadership team to react to employees feedback - flexible working hours with primary focus on performance - Fun work environment, team approach, team meetings and events - Health care package and 401k plan - Extensive training in multiple locations with other consultants

      Cons

      - Heavy responsibilities managing the full recruitment cycle from candidate generation to client management. - Strong sales focus (not HR, however made clear within the interview process). - Remote working in the making but not fully implemented yet.
