    I worked at Nigel Frank International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had three excellent years at Nigel Frank and worked with some amazing people. If you're prepared to work hard (like any successful recruiter) Nigel Frank will make sure you're well rewarded.

    Cons

    Very rigid with what time you start work and what time you have your lunch, may have changed now but it was I little bit like waiting for the school bell to go off...

    Advice to Management

    Spot other qualities in your employees other than just being amazing billers. Some very good people have left that could have been good managers, trainers etc.

    I have been working at Nigel Frank International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic training from start to finish, after having a couple of weeks on the floor it was nice coming into training with some knowledge but it has defiantly helped me going forward. Would defiantly recommend Nigel Frank to anyone looking to get into recruitment.

    Cons

    longer hours, but having early finishes on Wednesday and Fridays break this up.

    Advice to Management

    To have slightly more training on the technology we will be using.

    I worked at Nigel Frank International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Nigel frank international for around a year, when I started I thought it was the best company I’ve ever worked for! The training was second to none and the incentives were incredible

    Cons

    Growing too quickly, not growing the consultants they have properly and looks like they’re just using people as numbers to build up the value so senior management get more money when the company sells up again
    Progression seems non existent

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to invest into consultants, change their market, concentrate on the positives rather than negatives as it just de motivates everybody other than that a great company with great foundations but has lost its touch

    I have been working at Nigel Frank International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's plenty of hiring agencies, but this one is definitely the most friendly and rewarding I worked at or have heard of. Great incentives for best recruiters, pretty much The Wolf of Wall Street lifestyle. Some people hate it, some people love it - if you're one of the 'work hard play hard' people you'll fit just fine.

    Cons

    Well, exactly what you'd expect from working in the recruitment agency - long hours , lots of time on the phone and not impressive basic salary. At least you get full support from your team leaders/managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the social live and incentive trips - you're one of the best in the industry, but I'm sure you can do even better!

    Pros

    Opportunity to progress if you're willing to work like a dog to someone else'e rules with no home life.

    Cons

    Lot of pressure from management. Long hours that you're expected to work no matter how well you're doing or whether you're paid for them or not. Very rigid structure, you're given very limited flexibility and autonomy. If you don't enjoy drinking this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees.

    I worked at Nigel Frank International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is one of the best things about this company! Leadership is good in the sense that sometimes they have a different point of view on situations and help you see the bigger picture. There's no place I'd rather work coming right out of college as the training and experience doesn't compare to other companies.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, but that's typically what you find in a sales job.
