    I worked at Wallace Myers International full-time

    Pros

    Decent culture among most of the staff. The progression structure is appealing to people coming in and if you're the right person who bills the right amount it can be very rewarding and lucrative. Benefits are better than most other agencies once you hit the right level, but that's because most other agencies don't really give any benefits. MD is a great recruiter and salesman. Overall would recommend, a lot to be...

    Cons

    Too much responsibility and work being given to unqualified juniors, who are doing the job of a paid recruiter and getting nothing but a promise of a job in 6 months. I think having interns as sourcers and ops staff makes sense, but no intern should be acting as a 360 recruiter or have a revenue target against their name unless they're on the payroll and making commission off it. No paid-for recruitment tools. Scouring...

    Pros

    I am new to recruitment and I must say that all of the staff and management have been extremely helpful and always there to give me some advice when needed. Management has set a clear path when it comes to progression which is completely in your own hands, the harder you work, the more you get from this. Commision structure is great and benefits are also great. Recruitment can be stressful but the staff and my...

    Pros

    I really enjoy working in WallaceMyers. You are given the opportunity to map your own career and there is a set promotion structure that means promotion is entirely in your own hands! Lovely people to work with!

    Cons

    Account abilities are just another name for a KPI and sometimes I feel they dont add value. I also feel benefits such as pension and healthcare should be included straight from the get go after you complete your probation. I disagree with the unpaid Interns policy.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work just continue to develop and enhance the atmosphere around the office.

    I worked at Wallace Myers International full-time

    Pros

    There are some fantastic people in the company, and it was a pleasure working with a sometimes underappreciated support team. It was fun at times. It’s well located centrally in the city so accessible for most, and there is an ok client base.

    Cons

    The owner is a self-serving, spouting that he is all about the business and its people but that’s just a very good sales patter. He has no loyalty to staff and anyone who questions him either goes on performance review or gets ostracised. Those that then leave are vilified as failed recruiters destined to never make it creating an uncomfortable atmosphere and culture of fear. Consultants who have left are often blamed...

    Thank you for your feedback. Whilst I’m sure it’s easy to send anonymously, it's never easy reading something like this, particularly when it’s an assault on me personally and the company I have worked hard to grow. There are clearly some strong emotions and real bitterness here. ...
