    Pros

    A truly innovative and inspirational company. A global organisation with a local feel. Excellent leadership. Couldn't ask for a better workplace with great opportunities to progress.

    Cons

    So busy with lots on - can be hectic, but that being said the support is great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing- this is a great place with people at the heart of culture.

    I worked at Morgan McKinley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training and appetite for knowledge sharing among consultants.
    It's an excellent first step on a ladder for budding sales professionals. A strong manager is key to that learning curve as otherwise people sink rather than swim.

    Cons

    Very political organisation.
    They were overly focused on style rather than substance; for instance there were a lot of parties but no health insurance cover.

    Advice to Management

    Less 5* parties and more focus on meaningful employee benefits.
    Increase transparency on salaries, and progression routes.
    Increase focus on using coaching and reviews to really develop individuals.
