      Pros

      Great management in particular 2019 - there are great leaders at the moment coming from very different backgrounds and consultant at Nicoll Curtin have great opportunity to learn from the best. Not the typical recruitment company. Everyone in the business loves to help each other and the culture is very fun, outgoing and diverse. Freedome and autonomy, not hugely KPI driven, a lot of trust in employees, no micromanagement,...

      Salaries could be better for senior consultants Moving more towards a KPI model Heavy emphasis on BD Small desks, kills our eyes!

      Pros

      Most Glassdoor reviews are posted by employees who have recently left a company and want to publicly air their grievances. This review is the exact opposite. I worked as a recruitment consultant for Nicoll Curtin in Zurich for over two years and had an exceptionally positive experience and left only very reluctantly. The consultants are all friendly, easy-going, and hard-working. The level of camaraderie is very...

      Cons

      A few consultants (and I was included in this group) aren't German speakers (not a massive con anyway), but most recent hires have been German speakers and that is supposed to be a higher priority moving forward.

      Advice to Management

      Keep hiring good people and giving them the freedom to succeed in their own ways, and the company will continue to grow!

      Pros

      - Excellent career progression plan. From day one you receive full support from the management and excellent training program which help you develop quicker than in other recruitment companies. It does not matter how old you are or how long you have been in the business, you have the opportunity to develop and to decide which path you want your career to go. - Very competitive base salaries and excellent commission scheme....

      - Nothing. The company went through some changes in the past and the business in the right position now.

      Pros

      The Culture at NC is amazing, if you are hard working and have the right values you will be sure to succeed. Management give freedom and responsibility to staff who show potential. Direct & honest feedback from most of the Management.

      Cons

      Senior Management are kept on too long, even when under performing.

      Advice to Management

      Maintain same high expectations for Senior levels of management.

        I worked at Nicoll Curtin full-time

        Pros

        None - terrible company - would never recommend.

        Cons

        The worst company I have ever worked for. No company culture of caring about the employees. It 100% focused on KPIs, the minutes you were on the phone, in the toilet and BD even if that wasn't in your job description. I felt uncomfortable and dreaded going to work. It was unsupportive with the worst management. The work hours are a complete lie as you were watched if you left on time.

        I worked at Nicoll Curtin full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Good technology and office itself is a nice place to be in a great location with beautiful views and recently refurbed.

        Cons

        General recruitment cons: very young staff environment so not that mature overall, very high staff turn over, long hours and expectation to stay after 6.30. Lack of direction.

        Advice to Management

        Focus more on employee engagement and maybe do some research into the benefits it could bring to your company, especially given the unstable world of recruitment that you operate within.

        Cons

        (Management) seems to be under very high pressure to deliver results very quickly A few people (from the same team) were fired, within a short time span Whilst I cannot judge this, it has been said that the CEO - despite all the positive points - has no or very little idea of recruitment (Some people in the team seem quite stressed - even if it’s not noticeable at first sight or some won’t admit it) Some conflicting...

        You clearly put a lot of thought into this review so thanks for taking the time. I 100% agree when you say that if you fit into our environment and deliver you can progress rapidly. And also that it won't be for everyone. That's why we have a very rigorous hiring process to get the ...
