I was there as a temp and I had already worked for Michael Page in France as a PA.
No messing about. You do your job but you can always ask for help.
You need to be well dressed : no jeans or sweatpants even if you are not in contact with the public.
Decisions made by long serving management team who steer the direct, progress and culture of organisation somewhat limiting the capabilities of those individuals who join the company.
Highly political and survival depands who you are backed by.
Good training but tiny specialisms where sabotage is encourged to win.
Fees are more important than service
High turn over of staff
Brand name is recognisable and opens doors but increasingly bad reputation from stressed consultants offering poor service
Michael Page are recruiters, People applying for this job are not going to be working at Michael Page, I've spoken with many recruiters at Michael Page, they all seem like nice People whom care about your best interest.
Michael Page eignet sich hervorragend, um enorm viel im Vertrieb, HR, Personalberatung und Recruiting zu lernen. Die Firma investiert sehr viel in die Mitarbeiter und deren Ausbildung, die Kultur hat sich sehr zum positiven gewandelt. Alte Vorwürfe wie unflexible Arbeitszeiten, starre Strukturen o.Ä. sind einem modernen Arbeitsumfeld gewichen, in dem das Individuum sich frei entfalten darf.
Overall Michael Page is a good place to work. The pay is fair, the people are friendly, and the office is nice.
The best part about the job is the people you work with.
The hardest part about the job is it can be very boring. It's essentially a remote recruiting role so you are at your desk all day. Some markets are completely remote so you can never really meet anyone face to face.
However if you're looking for a desk job, this isn't a bad one as long as you don't mind cold calling businesses and people.
