    Pros

    Really strong team feel- made to feel valued very early on. Good mix of experienced consultants and new starters in a growing business. Encouraged to speak openly about any training requests/ other requests- and comments are actually listened to! Achievements are well recognised and rewarded.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hobson Prior full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Team atmosphere – everyone is really friendly and sociable - Great incentives ranging from smaller daily competitions to longer term targets for trips abroad - Thorough training programme and loads of support for graduates just starting out in their career – call shadowing, classroom-based training, personal research project - Achievable and constant promotion opportunities; room for everyone to go as senior as they want - Run your own desk

    Cons

    - Commission is good but isn’t always paid on time and you won’t get it if you leave the company before it’s paid - Hours generally end up being longer than advertised – 8.30 – 5.30 but people usually end up doing around an hour more per day to get everything done (however as a pro there is no expectation to take work home with you and you can switch off in the evenings and weekends)
