    -Recruitment can be long hours, but that's the nature of recruitment -Lack of parking on site -The roller-coaster of sales can be tough but you learn to develop thick skin quickly

    Conseils à la direction

    Overall a great place to work in my opinion. I'm in my third year and am still enjoying it. The incentives are great and keep me interested to push each month.

    Avantages

    Good people (members of staff) and a good working environment. Some of the incentives are good, others are not so. The managers within the business are fair

    Inconvénients

    The commission structure is not all as it seems and is evidently not that great. Sometimes you are treated like children with the lack of autonomy

    J'ai travaillé chez Penguin Recruitment à temps plein

    Avantages

    The staff- resilient despite the madness and always offering support to each other, had some great times with them in the office and outside. The 'pod skippers' - calling these people managers would lead you to thinking they actually manage, but this is done from the top. However, the managers I had the pleasure of working with were superb characters and a big help day-to-day. Some incentives worth praising, notably...

    Dérouler

    Inconvénients

    Micromanagement from the top - the managers have little influence, you know everything comes from above them and the frequent 'business updates' leave you little time to recruit. Being called Penguins repeatedly. Lack of career progression.

    Conseils à la direction

    Allow your managers to actually manage and the teams might grow.

    J'ai travaillé chez Penguin Recruitment à temps plein

    Avantages

    Due to the 360 nature of the job Penguin is actually a great place to cut your recruitment teeth - you have to do everything bar chasing payments - so you learn quickly how to do advertising campaigns, searches, the interview process, offer management, Canvassing for business etc... It sets you up well for your next job in recruitment. There are decent team incentives - days out, sporting events, Lavish Meals, go-karting...

    Dérouler

    Inconvénients

    There was a culture of checking / micromanagement which came from the very top. Regular 'business updates', internal emails being monitored etc Being a smallish firm it's a very flat structure and with a settled management team in place it is hard to progress beyond being a good billing consultant. I was often distracted by petty battles amongst management as to which radio station was playing, whether doors windows...

    Conseils à la direction

    Treat people like adults. Referring to consultants as 'Penguins' and running interview countdowns based on e.g. 'your favourite Disney character' just gave the impression sometimes that we were working in a school rather than a professional sales office.

    The people who work at Penguin are good fun Some managers were good. Although most were not managers Some incentives were good

    Inconvénients

    Often treated like a child Micromanaged from the top down No career progression. Financially only benefits the two directors. Even those next on the ladder seem to be a million miles away. What is there to aim for?

    Listen to what motivates people Stop micromanaging and let the managers manage Give your staff something to aim for

    Going to play on a trampoline or bowling doesnt provide motivation for an adult billing in access of £100k. Can be treated quite childlike at times. No reason to want to become a team leader / manager.

    Avantages

    Great earning potential with generous rewards. They say a workplace is nothing without good people and this place certainly has some of the best people I've had the pleasure of working with. Also the directors have made a big push forward to grow individual's career prospects as well as business through continual money and time investment!

    Inconvénients

    Long working hours, however this is made better by the early finishes, end of month incentives and late starts we are regularly rewarded with.

    Very male-dominated, incentives are lies, insensitive towards family bereavements, intrusive about personal situations whether that be medical, emotional etc. hire and fire company, don't pay employees money correctly, unprofessional.
