I worked at Wavsys for less than a year
WAVSYS pays their employees on-time every two weeks. If they have an active job they are trying to fill, they will place you quickly.
Once you are placed under contract at the end employer and you need a question answered, they are SLOW to contact you back. Human Resources is not very helpful.

I worked at Brightwater full-time for more than a year
Ethical practices all round both internally and with clients and candidates, Clear and competitive commission structure, large portion of roles called in, excellent brand name on market when doing BD..., Extremely competent workforce from back office to board level, understanding and helpful when struggling to make target as long as you are meeting your weekly KPIs. Almost zero expectation to take work home which is rare in recruitment. Personally I liked the formal dress code and felt it helped foster the sense of class synonymous with the brand.
A lot is expected of you activity wise and in terms of upholding brand name, and you need to be very tough to succeed and stay calm under these expectations. That is as much of a con as you want it... to be, for the people who can handle it it means they excel but for those who can't it is a struggle and at times this was hard to watch.
Advice to Management
Middle management need more support in learning how to become good people managers as well as just high billers, for their own sake just as much as for the sake of new employees. Stress often filters... down and is worsened by a lack of ability to effectively manage juniors and this can (at times) create a tense atmosphere in what is otherwise an extremely well oiled machine that produces some of the best average billings per consultant in Dublin.
