    I worked at Charterhouse Partnership full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The view from the balcony.

    Cons

    If you want to know what the company culture is like, just watch 'Mean Girls' , but add twice the drama and petty gossip. Despite this, some people were pretty decent. I wouldn't have lasted as long if it weren't for the support from my Director & team. Also: - Obvious Favouritism - Flexibility is a lie. It does not exist. - They handled Covid terribly and continue to do so. - Salaries are still reduced by 40% despite the company making money - Micromanagement - barely any social events, aside from getting drunk on the balcony - Below average commission structure - Constant lies and cover ups - High turnover

    I have been working at Charterhouse Partnership full-time

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company for two years so have seen the change from the old to new and it’s all for the good, having worked for a couple of agencies before I’ve got ground to compare. Some pros: - People. So many good recruiters and everyone gets along. I could happily talk to every single person in the company and everyone wants their colleagues to succeed, it is like a family and I’ve made some of my best friends over the past couple of years here. - I work autonomously and manage my desk how I want, yes there are KPIs which are more guidelines when people are starting a desk but they are realistic and reasonable. Once you’re billing, you get left to it and there is support there if you need it. In comparison to previous companies, I have so much flexibility and I’m treated like an adult. If I have a bad month or quarter I don’t feel as though my job is on the line and I’m given the support and help to get back on track. They see potential in employees and give you time to find your feet- a luxury not a lot of agencies do. - CEO and management are approachable and helpful and the HR Manager is amazing, they all want you to succeed and will go over and above to help you in both professional and personal dramas. - Incentives and parties. So many incentives, in a high pressure industry it’s so important to celebrate the wins which they do well I’ve been to amazing restaurants, boat parties, not to mention the NYE parties and big billers trips all around the world. - Pay for PR regardless of your billings or position-no need to say any more. - Changes put in place in the last year are incredible-HR, formalised training, quarterly reviews, 360 feedback, website, branding, new commission structure, and about to have another party to celebrate!

    Cons

    - There is a bit of negativity at the moment for various reasons which is such a shame, no company is perfect and it’s frustrating when people focus on the minor negatives rather than the long list of positives. One thing I will say is there are so many positive people in the company too, you just don’t hear from them because they are getting on with it, doing their jobs and making money-that’s what we are here for after all! - Training was a down point but this has been a major focus of the last year and the formalised training is about to launch.

    Pros

    Good view of outside buildings

    Cons

    Where to begin... Even though the company tells you that they have just gone through major changes for the better, still nothing seems like it’s changed. Working there was a joke as well as a combination of micro management, high staff turnover, terrible commission structure and bad working environment. I was missfortunate enough to be pususaded over from the Uk where I was treated like just a number. Do your research before joining a company such as this. Also, I actually saw HR write reviews on here to better the company name!

    I worked at Charterhouse Partnership

    Pros

    Had some great people. The balcony has fantastic views. That's it.

    Cons

    I'll bullet point this, it's easier; - Management write reviews on here pretending to be consultants, it's sad. - The new 'fantastic' IT systems were poorly integrated and a whole bunch of data was lost. - No HR in a company of over 100 people, inexcusable - Terrible commission structure - Unompetitive commission structure - They will lag at visa processes to force you to stay - No marketing - Ridiculous turnover - Cockroach infestation - The old MD treated the place like his own play toy, then got the boot. But not before.... - Most of the other directors left anyway, so there isn't any leadership. - Sexual harassment - Can't attract any local experienced staff

    I have been working at Charterhouse Partnership full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Legitimately great incentives offered... including all expenses paid annual oveseas trips, quarterly boat parties, wining and dining, bubble soccer etc etc. I've never worked at a company that rewards so much, in addition to the financial rewards - Fun, supportive culture: Personable and fun people fill this office, making day to day monotony of full time work a lot more bearable! - Good commission structure (especially due to the recent change, now a significant improvement in incentivising the big billers!) - No KPI culture (if you make money, no one asks questions, which is highly refreshing from my perspective and comparison to previous companies I have worked in!) - Amazing Location: THE BEST view across Sydney Harbour and afternoon drinks on the balcony overlooking it, every Friday! Also hosts the Best NYE party in town. - Career progression is clear; ambitious and hard working Consultants are supported in their career progression and appropriately rewarded with promotions (loyalty and longevity is rewarded)

    Cons

    - More comprehensive training should be provided, particularly now that intake of Consultants is younger and much less experienced than it was a few years ago. - Staff retention: There has been a significant decrease in this, particularly in 2016. A lot of senior Managers have left, and many consultants, and the change of Senior Management structure has left people feeling very unsettled, which promotes even worse staff retention

    I worked at Charterhouse Partnership

    Pros

    Well known agency (not necessarily for the right reasons either even clients avoid using!) lots of staff employed and high turnover of stagf

    Cons

    The MD is vile and makes the place horrible environment she backstabs everyone and plays staff off against one another. You didn't see this side of her until you've been there 6-12 months - I've seen her do it to many others. It's. toxic place to work and should avoid - much nice boutique agencies out there to work! Commission structure isn't that great either!

    Charterhouse Partnership Response

    April 19, 2017Managing Director

    Thanks for taking the time to write a review, although it does sound like your review really isn’t a review of Charterhouse it is a few lines of hatred and anger. It is never nice to read that someone has had a bad experience and is unhappy, full of angry and hatred for a business or a person, so if you are indeed an ex-employee of Charterhouse then I am sorry to hear about your experience, I do hope that you have secured a new role in a boutique agency that betters suits you.
