    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.

    Advice to Management

    We should have better technology and tools! More flexibility should be provided to employees. We should have a strong internal TA team.
