    Pros

    Fantastische inwerkperiode, goed gestructureerd L&D departement, veel mogelijkheden om te groeien in je carrière en je salaris, teams zijn toegewijd en heel ondersteunend voor elkaar, verkoopsdoelstellingen zijn haalbaar. Je wordt verwacht hard en lang te werken, maar dat loont als je begaan bent met je job. Geweldige plaats om je verkoopsfundamenten op te bouwen rond elke discipline (account management, recruitment en business development). Dit is een verkoopsjob, dus er wordt van je verwacht jezelf tot je limieten te duwen. Dat is waar je voor getekend hebt. Als je daar niet klaar voor bent, ga er dan niet voor.

    Excellent induction period, well structured L&D department, many opportunities to grow your career and salary, teams are committed and very supportive to each other, sales targets are within reach. You are expected to work hard and long hours, but it pays of if you commit. Great place to build your sales foundation over every discipline (account managent, recruitment and business development) This is a sales job, so pushing yourself to the max is what is expected and what you sign up for. If you are not up for this, then don't go for it.

    Cons

    HR departement is vatbaar voor druk van het management, geheimen zullen niet bewaard blijven. Nadat Allegis Aston Carter verwierf, verdwenen veel van de waarden en methodologieën die het bedrijf geweldig maakten. Lokaal management is onderontwikkeld. Ze verwerven deze positie vanwege bereikte verkoopsdoelstellingen, hun engagement en werkethiek, maar niet vanwege hun capaciteiten qua leiderschap, management of het sociale aspect.

    HR department is receptive to pressure from management, secrets will not be kept. After Allegis acquired Aston Carter many of the values and work methodologies which made the company great disappeared. Local management is underdeveloped. They acquire these position due to sales targets being met, their commitment and work ethic, but not because of their social, management or leadership capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Probeer de Aston Carter waarden te behouden!

    Try to maintain Aston Carter's values!
