    I worked at Davidson Recruitment for less than a year

    Pros

    They always found me interesting temp roles at good, reputable companies. If I was planning to stay in the area it would have helped me get my foot in the door at some good places.

    Cons

    There was a 1-2 week gap in between contracts, but this may be normal for temping agencies. They were the only one I worked for.

    Pros

    Good team members, great social atmosphere.

    Cons

    No training and professional development opportunities. Terrible management team who do not care about their employees. They throw you under the bus. No women in the leadership team and they treat women poorly in general. No diversity at all.

    I worked at Davidson Recruitment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location in Melbourne

    Cons

    Terrible management. No leadership. Management too focussed on appearances and no real substance behind their decisions. Relationships with many senior executive level candidates have been destroyed and this is giving the firm a very bad name in Victoria. Other agencies are laughing at us.

    I have been working at Davidson Recruitment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The amount of knowledge and talent in the office is second to none Everyone is really supportive and there is a real team culture in the office Being surrounded by such driven people is infectious and excellent performance becomes the norm.

    Cons

    Relatively new to the NSW market so still in the infancy stages however, with the talent in the office I have no doubt we will go from strength to strength

    I have been working at Davidson Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    Collaborative and supportive environment Won't accept average workers with average morale, at least they don't last very long Filled with consultants from international backgrounds and decades of experience Doesn't sell out values for profit Senior management incredibly engaged with all levels off staff

    Cons

    The Sydney office is new to the market which not for everyone, but it gives an opportunity to grow with the business.
