What are meetings like at SThree?

Pros

None that I can think of

Cons

Too many meetings, ageism, strange office culture of cuddling

Advice to Management

Ageism is rife here, if you are experienced for a role then there are no opportunities to progress as these are aimed at the younger inexperienced staff, there are inexperience younger staff in more senior roles than those who are older and have much more experience. There are also a ludicrous amount of meetings at SThree, I would say that I had more meetings in my 2 and half years at SThree than I did in all of my other jobs put together, so much work time is lost because of these meetings, and there were also the unnecessary monthly Performance Review meetings, preparation for these alone took up so much time away from your work itself. There is also a very strange office culture between certain managers and staff of cuddling each other when something positive happens, I find this very uneasy and this is something one would not expect to see in an office environment. When I started at SThree, the visions laid out by the then CEO Gary Eldon made it seem like an exciting opportunity, but since he resigned the place went downhill rapidly.

What are working conditions like at SThree?

Pros

I was very fortunate to work for a great manager at SThree in San Francisco who did an incredible job in providing me with recruitment and career skills that will set me up for life. The office was a lot of fun and the people were generally super nice. It is the perfect place to learn new skills right out of college, and despite what I have seen in some other reviews, I would say there is definitely a really decent work/life balance.

Cons

I would not have left my job at SThree if I were paid a reasonable “market rate” salary. Unfortunately I was unable to make the low base salary work.

Advice to Management

Review the salaries of all your employees, and especially those who aren’t in sales roles. Otherwise, I think you all are doing a wonderful job building a great office.

What is typically worn or allowed to be worn at work at SThree?

Pros

Fast paced, uncapped commission, and great training structure to learn the basics of being a great recruiter. Business casual dress, early leave on Fridays, and nice flexible working hours.

Cons

A lot of turnover at times, which creates ever-shifting leadership structure. As with any sales-type role, commission is purely based off of performance, so if you go awhile without making a deal the low base salary can be tough. But if you perform well, you are rewarded richly, and they are currently working on changing the base salary to be competitive.
