    I worked at Randstad full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wouldn't work there again as terrible culture or recommend it but for a first job after uni it gave me a thick skin, baptism of fire into business and made a bunch of great friends - Met some amazing people and friends for life - Given access to senior people and clients early in my career - Learnt a lot about business and what makes a programme/business /project fail or succeed - Great networking - Amazing rewards and perks if you do well - Fun social scene - young fast paced company

    Cons

    - CEO and Management don't care at all about individuals just the profit - Very high turnover - Sexist culture - Often have to 'shmooz' to succeed - Didn't make a lot of money - have to make 30k each quarter before getting any commission - Not much support - Highly competitive - Clunky CRM system leading to a lot of awkward moments with candidates - The company have no interest in employees wellbeing just the figure you make

    I have been working at Randstad full-time

    Pros

    This is probably is the best among the other headhunting firms that I heard from the market. Trainings are provided. Managers and even the directors are so more than willing and happy to guide and provide support for you (even if you’re a principle / manager). Mixing with the other team members are highly encouraged and nobody will say that they’re too busy to catch up or have lunch with you. Really awesome place and environment for work. Majority of the people here are really grounded and down to earth. Even the top billers.

    Cons

    Didn’t really face any major challenges or anything bad even during this Covid19 situation. Everyone are still very well bonded.
