    Pros

    Commission scheme - make sure you have everything logged correctly because they will try every way possible to get out of paying commission. Especially if you were to leave. They will try to claw back commission that was paid months ago even though the candidate is still happily working with your client.

    Cons

    - The way the business perceives itself on social media is nothing like the way it operates on a day to day basis. - Good luck seeing a Manager pick up the phone and do a business development call. It’s a race to get as hands off as possible and dictate orders of how much activity you should be doing rather then showing how it is done. - High KPI’s with no understanding of why. No awareness that business trends have...

    Advice to Management

    - Advice that’s given to children... treat people the way that you would like to be treated. - Business ethics 101 - Just because it’s legal does not make it right.

    I worked at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really great people have been hired in the past...

    Cons

    All those good people left the business and what is left of the business is a sharky, bullish environment. Who they portray themselves to be on the outside couldn't be further from the truth internally.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a bit more respect. Show them their value to you (and not just about how much cash you can squeeze out of them), if you don't it really might come back to bite.

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture, leadership and offices are all top notch. They pay a competitive base and commission structure for top talent and have many other financial incentives. I have never come across another business that provides everyone with a linkedIn recruiter licence.

    Cons

    They have high expectations of their staff and it isn't a place to coast. This isn't a con as much as it is a warning to anyone who is looking for an easy ride.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and keep growing. Internally promoting the chance to relocate internationally more would be great.

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Commission scheme is decent and pretty much the only selling point.

    Cons

    For starters, I know for a fact that most of the positive comments on this page and on their website were ghostwritten by the marketing team- so do read them with a critical mind. Turnover rate is extremely high mainly due to the way employees are treated here and the local office is run. Operation is very unorganized as everything is run remotely from the UK. This means you can hardly get a hold of HR, trainings are...

    Advice to Management

    Be sensitive and appreciative the local culture, people and practices.

    Pros

    High performing office! Great incentives in place where the bar gets higher and higher! I would not want to work for another agency, it would not compare!

    Cons

    They do not do snack packs on site, i have to go down to the ground floor and get one, this could be improved!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work in the way you have built success so far! Everyone loves coming to work on a daily basis due to the culture in place !
