    I worked at CPL Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I moved to Dublin from Derry for work and Cpl really helped with my transition down there. Being someone without any recruitment experience I was given a lot of support to ensure I was able to fulfil my duties.
    The company offers fantastic well-being initiatives and I loved getting to Pilates after a stressful Tuesday in the office. I've had many jobs and I have never experienced the warm and exciting atmosphere like I did at Cpl.
    I worked in the Technology team, my managers were incredibly helpful, encouraging and really built me up and raised my working confidence and self esteem.
    If you are determined to work hard, earn good money and enjoy being around lovely people I would definitely recommend you to apply for a job at Cpl.

    Cons

    Cpl is a very sociable workplace, the people are fun and the fun could sometimes spill over to after working hours when pals gather for a few drinks in the local Smyths across the street. There are a lot of eateries around Cpl also which can be tempting at lunch time. So I'd advise you to bring a packed lunch and keep the guinny to a minimum to avoid packing on the lbs!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management, only praise and gratitude. So thanks for having me and allowing me to join your fantastic team at Cpl Technology.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CPL Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    On many PSL's (although Con to this is you wont learn how to do BD)
    Some nice people work here, decent office atmosphere
    Paid commission monthly

    Cons

    Facilities are shocking, showers very poor, not enough toilets and regularly blocked
    No progression or ongoing training
    It can be a bit luck of the draw with who your manager is, most of the time you are left to sink or swim. But if you get lucky and get a good manager who can mentor you then you could succeed
    Database is very messy, consultants not updating it to keep candidates to themselves etc.

    Advice to Management

    Managing staff and being a big biller are different things. Don't burden the big billers with managing a team, and get some real people managers in and you will see the average consultants who are just plodding along give you some great returns
