    Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Hays plc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good initial training
    Real possibility to make a lot of money
    Culture can be fun - but very male-oriented

    Cons

    Trapped in a monthly cycle
    Never make as much as they promise you
    Management shuffles are constantly occurring
    Plateau after 6 months, very little development after that.
    Huge Attrition rate of staff (circa 60% a year in some teams)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees more
    Give a new strategy a little time before changing again.
    Implement a real quarter by quarter career development plan

    Doesn't Recommend

    Current Employee - IT Manager  in  London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - IT Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked with some great people when I first joined who realized things were going downhill and left.

    Cons

    Currently managed by some monkeys who dont have a clue on what theyr doing. Dumping all the costs into CAPEX from OPEX is not reducing the overheads. A bunch of con artists currently running the company into the ground and milking it for everything its worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get somebody to manage IT who actually have some technical knowledge.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
