Great team, long hours and low $$

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The team and culture of the company is great, with plenty of training and a supportive management team when times may get a little tough. There only two negatives in my opinion is the hours of work expected* and the low amount of pay compared to market averages for what is expected. *they use flexible working but realistically, you will always work minimum 40 hours on a 38 contract and even then feel judged for leaving the office.

Pros

Great colleagues

Cons

Long hours and low pay
Was this review helpful?

Excellent and professional colleagues

Grateful and appreciate kind mannered staff and them always giving me opportunity to learn in different field of work. Had learnt a lot and happy to see staff every day.

Pros

Free lunches, offered food eg. Rocky road chocolate, polite and professional mannered colleagues.

Cons

Personal details asked about, although very caring.
Was this review helpful?

Long hours. No appreciation for hard work.

Not everyone is treated the same in departments. A few arrogant senior managers with favourites, and it's not a place for a long-term career for certain roles.

Pros

Big company name

Cons

Bullying culture in operational side of business No career progression Heavy workload
Was this review helpful?

Fun environment with emphasis on work/life balance. Good benefits and the employees generally look out for each other.

I was with the company briefly, but it was a great experience. Of all the organizations I worked for, they by far had the best leadership. My boss was supportive and allowed me to incorporate new ideas without hesitation.

Pros

Flexibility to be innovative

Competitive environment but work hard pays off

Good company to work with and develop yourself. The management team is very supportive but can be quite conservative in some ways. A bit hierarchal for you must deliver the info through your manager and the management will pass it to the director. they don't recommend us to talk to the director directly.

Pros

Supportive Management

Cons

Jobs can be too competitive and stressful

Ambiente di lavoro stimolante e flessibile

Ambiente competitivo e formativo, si lavora ad obiettivi e sta cambiando molto come clima interno e nell'equilibrio lavoro- vita privata. Si guarda molto di più alla sostanza che alle ore lavorate.

Pros

Buoni pasto, carriera, stipendio

Cons

Troppo orientati esclusivamente sul fatturato nel breve periodo

Just Another Recruitment Company

Base pay was descent compared to other companies but bonus was much smaller and changed based upon company performance and managements (discretionary) feelings about you. Managers were not highly incentivized to improve team performance as the bulk of their bonus came from their own employee placements. This in turn led to high turn over with under supported employees.

Pros

Base salary, Some Senior Management

Cons

Team Managers, Small Bonuses, Inconsistent Bonuses

Solid foundation to work in a fast paced environment

You have to be driven to succeed in the saturated field of HR Consultancies. A lot of hard work and hours for a average compensation. Not every manager is suitable for leading positions as they are promoted into the role based on operating success not leadership qualities.

Pros

coworkers, events

Cons

work life balance

Desorden

No existe una línea de carrera, no hay cursos de capacitación, no existe un orden jerárquico a quien informar sobre avances técnicosCuando quieres dar una observación o tienes una duda no sabes quién es tu jefe inmediato, tienes que ir a rrhh.

Pros

Ninguno

Cons

Dudas

Solid place to learn recruitment

Solid place to learn recruiting, but the compensation structure seems to be designed to line the pockets of upper management and keep the actual headhunters from making money past their base salary.

Productive

I learnt to be independent, to be confident with myself and excellent communication skills. It is a big company therefore need for self worth and confidence.It was a fast paced environment, therefore being efficient and attiquate was necessary. A lot of colleagues therefore an opportunity to interact with a lot of people.

Pros

Free alcohol every Friday, well i had cold drinks as i do not drink

Not the best environment

Michael Page pays well, but it takes a very long time to get promoted and they have no problem firing you on the spot. Please tread with caution here…

Immature leadership

Sales culture where they only care about the bottom line and what you bill. Top performers can be horrible employees and no one cares. HR is a joke. Not a place where you can stay throughout your career unless you are a frat boy who will never grow up.

I don't recommend

I worked for Michael Page at their Montreal location in 2020 and was really unimpressed in their way of handling the COVID crisis. They've let many on their good employees go and only rehired a few back. Not their best environment either. A lot of negativity and if you leave the office before 5, everyone looks at you like and makes strange comments about it. Pay and bonus structure lower than market.
