    I worked at Antal International as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Best exposure to recruitment process for mid to senior level managers in the IT/ITES space. Project was challenging and helped learn many new concepts that work in practice. Standard office timings and adherence to corporate culture at workplace.

    Cons

    Scope of research could not be broadened enough due to time constraints. Gets boring at times due to limited space and people to talk to.

    If you are commission oriented, this is the best place for you

    Cons

    If you need help, don't count on anybody
    You'll feel miserable everyday at work and will always have the feeling to get fired anytime soon
    The commission policy is barely ethical and tricky

    I have been working at Antal International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - international environment
    - nice colleagues

    Cons

    - no attention towards quality
    - focus just on cold calling and sending randomly CV's to clients
    - low salaries

    it's a place where there is nothing to learn/gain, you just stress yourself out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to focus on delivering a good and honest service to the clients and on treating better their employees who are not just robots/slaves who have to remain attached to the phone 8 hours per day. It should a recruitment agency and not a call center.

    I have been working at Antal International as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Only a good company to do an internship if you already have min. 1 year experience in a HR recruitment consulting company because superiors dont have time or want to show you anything.

    Cons

    Collegues only focused on billing, low ethlical and humane level in the company which goes up to country manager level. Methods of the company are unethical.
    Bosses never have time to train you and expect you to know everything from the begining. If you dont give results from the beginning you risk being psychologically mistreated by management.
    Superiors never give you feedback unless its negative and even that feedback is only given when they fire you.
    Company pride themselves in being honest and straight forward but in this case it translates to grave disrespect towards stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont take an intern if you wont have time to train them.
