    Pros

    exposure - you get exposure top firms in various sectors of your region. it also helps you to understand their functionings in a much better manner. Networking - due to client/candidate interaction you end up establishing a great network with the top senior management at a lot of firms Salary - you are more than compensated for the hard work put in. even the bonus + addl benefits are rather great. money is not an issue for Michael Page employees work environment - its a pretty young,energetic group of employees. more than that, the environment is completely meritorious and it is easy to move up the ladder. anyone who is ambitious could do wonders for themselves at this place. even the company values are taken very seriously and incorporated in a lot of things.

    Cons

    yes, the working hours are long. but once you figure out where you fit in the day just flies by before you know it.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at PageGroup full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing team work Despite being a FTSE250 business, the exposure to the Directors is really good. They're very approachable. Accomodating as much as possible Great incentives Training support given on request Lovely working environment Good career opportunities and a variety of options depending on your capability

    Cons

    There's a bit of a stigma, not just in this recruitment business but others too, to work longer hours than those on your contract. Overall, there's a lot of flexibility given at Page, and they're championing on wellbeing initiatives which aren't just tick box exercises. But sometimes on a smaller scale there's generally an expectation to work longer hours than contracted because 'thats what they've always done'. This is gradually improving though!
