    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Don’t have to make sales calls. Step towards in-house if that’s of interest.

    Cons

    No career progression, no learning, no work life balance, low commission, low basic, the office is in a basement and they are not very clear about whats expected. The managers have favorites and certain people are allowed to come in late and not hit targets and others are not which isn’t fair.

    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Definitely one of the best companies I have worked for in my career with a strong brand in the Irish market. They recently moved into new offices which are amazing. Great management team in place who are open to change and the door is always open if you want to have a chat. There is a clear patch to progression within the company and you just need to follow the steps and do your job to get promoted. They have a huge client base with lots of exclusive work so there's not a huge focus on BD which gives you more time to recruit and earn commission. Really good yearly incentives such as trips to Tenerife, Vegas etc for people over target. Good training done by the directors and always willing to help if you are unsure about something I would definitely work for Harvey Nash again in the future which says it all really

    Cons

    Salaries can be a bit low compared to competitors and not much benefits

    I worked at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Supportive people -Unlimited commission opportunity -Dynamic - if you spot an opportunity and make a business case they will support it if it's strong and makes sense for the business -Training opportunities -It's a great starting ground to gain experience in sales, account management and consultancy -Excellent incentives such as free team ski trips and individual trips if you overachieve

    Cons

    You probably reach a certain level and there is no further progression - but if you want to sell and earn commission and this is what fulfills your expectations there really are no limits. You need to be flexible and dedicated, there are long hours but once you manage your time well and figure out what works for you it's great. If you enjoy working with good people these cons are quickly over looked.

    Pros

    Harvey Nash works closely with some big tech companies, that's cool. Maybe you can have a cool opportunity somewhere.

    Cons

    Being unfamiliar with the outsourcing reality not all the contract details (benefits, contract renewal, etc) were made clear for me at the very beginning.

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Harvey Nash is a great place to work. They're small enough to allow tons of autonomy and opportunity to try new things, while being large enough to have the support structure in place you need. They are willing to try new things and there a very low ego culture. In an industry that can be face paced and very sales driven, HN has always operated under a strong moral code, treated employees and clients well, and rewarded people for good work. It's a fun culture, good work life balance, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Still a traditional sales job, so there is the aspect of hitting metrics and quotas. Although not NEARLY to the level other agencies do. The right metrics are analyzed. But it can still be fast paced and stressful!
