    I have been working at PageGroup full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really Buzzing Environment as each minute is filled with opportunity to build the business by placing and promoting talented people to top brands (clients), Great money in the mid to long term tenure, Exciting Social Life (Everybody is looking for reasons for a cheeky pints, and we find plenty of them), Exposure to Interacting with Senior Stakeholders at a Young Age. Pretty much like a Trading Room environment where driven and ambitious people are all about MAKING MONEY!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Long Hours for Sure (11 Hours is a minimum workday) and sometimes will take toll on other areas But for a right employee, time just flies by because you just end up being in love with what you do. Focus on meeting KPIs but the intent behind is obviously to thrive in this industry as a business.

    I have been working at PageGroup full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive environment and godo on-the-job training of how the industry works. Enough time is given to pick-up necessary skills & traits before results are expected. You are respected if you earn well. Immense brand value in the market and this allows you to reflect a good resume. Compensation is decent and allows you to more than just survive in the city. Great scope of growing up the ranks provided you are competent enough.

    Cons

    Long working hours are not an issue since the environment is very open and you have people around you. The IT system could do with an upgradation.
