    5. 4.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Good Pay, Fun but little flexibility

      Jun 18, 2021 - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Sydney

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good training provided, good pay, lots of fun and great managers. Good first job out of uni.

      Cons

      Very little flexibility, traditional work environment. Social is very centered around getting drunk - if that's not your thing then it's not that fun. Discretionary bonuses are not always advantageous. The model leaves too much room for favouritism and unfair treatment.

      Made some friends for life here, the culture was great and managers are supportive. They help you progress and grow as long as you put work in too.

      Cons

      Management could be more transparent and a supportive of the more junior members of staff.
