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

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Michael Page is the people. Quite simply, you will not get such a set of commercially savvy, energetic, well turned out and dynamic people anywhere else. Period. Coming in to office is itself an enjoyable experience as you know that you are not going to have a dull moment the entire day. Recruitment Consulting at Page is a great way to understand business. While often advertised as sales, the role is so much more than that. It provides the opportunity to actually run your own business, from lead generation and sales to contracting, requirement gathering, solution delivery and finally revenue booking and collections. You get to rub shoulders with CXOs of large organisations so and lead client meetings pitching to industry veterans at a (comparatively) very young age The organisation has a high-performing, transparent and merit-driven culture. Career Progression is something they strongly believe in and you are always clear what is expected of you to get to the next level.

    Cons

    The organisation has some way to go in how it leverages IT. The CRM is slightly dated and the use of basic technology like video integrated messenger systems internally for each terminal is not standardised. Also, there are logistical issues that accompany any fast-growing organisation in a metropolis such as availability of meeting rooms, size and availability of restrooms, size of the pantry etc.

    I have been working at PageGroup full-time

    Pros

    The culture is meritocratic. Bonus numbers and career trajectory is decided in a fairly objective manner. MP does not hire people laterally so you can be rest assured you'll be working with a boss who has walked the talk. It's fun. (Friday drinks and an open door policy. Great access to senior leaders. Open floor culture. There's always high energy on the floor from a set of talented people from various backgrounds) It has some of the best incentives in the industry for top performers (Quarterly bonuses, Platinum Club, Red Letter, Millionaire's) Overall it's a fun place to be in if you enjoy consultative sales. It's a good learning experience specially in terms of team management as responsibility is entrusted to you at an early age. It's good for any sales person who is entrepreneurial and likes to lead teams. You are the CEO of your own desk!

    Cons

    Recruitment is an industry with some unique challenges. You're selling something that's intangible and not in your control. You must do diligence to understand if it is for you. Work hours can be long. You're never really off the hook.
