    Pluspunten

    Busy! Never a dull moment and there is always something to do, which makes the day go by fast! Great company for recent graduates and recruiting professionals that are looking to advance their career. You will learn to work hard, fail, and keep going. There are 25 year olds making 100k plus. There are a lot of role models in the business. Work culture is a lot of fun, everyone becomes friends. The company has a lot... of fun incentives like 5 star restaurants monthly, and trips to Belize, Miami, New Orleans, etc. It is definitely challenging when you first start, so some people quit early on. If you're not completely sure if it's a good fit for you, ask to shadow someone before taking the job. If you like to win, compete, talk a lot, could be a good fit for you. As far as benefits, just this year they rolled out a Parental leave policy. They also are now helping pay for parking which everyone is SO happy with! There has been a lot less turnover lately, teams are starting to get established and it's exciting seeing a lot of people making deals! The past two months we BROKE sales records and that is exciting for everyone.

    No 401k match, but one is supposed to come out this year. Work hours aren't very flexible for sales team, you are never forced to stay after core hours but you will end up taking calls after hours sometimes in this line of work so it would be nice if you had more say since you are working for commission.

    Advies aan management

    Keep listening to employees, rolling out all the new benefits makes people feel they are being heard. Have more strategic plans for new hires training, training is excellent but some people have to wait almost a month for it

    Thank you for your review, as you have implied, there will be a 401K contribution starting in Q4 2019 (we are just waiting on the legal paperwork) which has been requested by staff for a long time. When you add it to our other benefits (fully paid health and dental, upto 30 days ...

    I joined SO with previous recruitment experience and have found it to be a really well run business, with all the resources I have needed to do my job. The leadership development I have received has been as good, or better, than what I experienced previously and I think the company makes real effort to develop not just junior staff but also more experienced sales people and managers. Being in a leadership role, I... especially like the fact that the company invests significantly in continued growth, as well as having a full support services function here in Singapore. Lots of the benefits of a young/entrepreneurial business, with the structure and process of a big agency. Culturally, we hire energetic and outgoing people from diverse backgrounds so it's a fun and enjoyable place to come to work in the morning! Personally SO has offered me growth and career opportunity since joining and I would highly recommend the company as a leading recruitment firm.

    Choosing Spencer Ogden as my first job after finishing university is one of the best decisions I've made. Spencer Ogden places so much value in investing in their own people through the Graduate Academy programme and subsequent weekly training. I've learned so much values and lessons that are not just pertaining to my work desk, but also impactful to my everyday lives. Company's culture is fast-paced, highly... motivated and vibrant - makes you look forward to coming to work every single day.

    Spencer Ogden provides a week long training that contains all the information you need to become a successful recruiter. The work environment SO provides to their employees is fantastic. Casual Fridays with an early release (3pm), end of month drinks, upgraded office, and weekly healthy snacks are all part of the perks of working in the Houston office. Everyone in the office, not only management, is helpful to... you in attaining your career goals and aspirations. Coming from a negative sales environment, this office is the complete opposite and is a joy to walk into daily.

    Excellent opportunities for progression and development. Salary and bonus structures are above industry standard, which is made easier to achieve by having agreements with many of the major players within the Power and Energy sectors.

    Great company where if you are willing to PUT in the effort and time , you will be rewarded. Be it a grad or team manager or any position , there is training catered for each level, not to mention the 1-1 mentoring from upper management , which you don’t get in other Rec companies or other industry.

    Minpunten

    - Collaborative and friendly people - Supportive culture - Clear promotion framework - Excellent initial training academy and ongoing training throughout the career

    - Flexible hours are applicable only for support staff. Half of the office has flexible hours, while sales do not (despite 70% of them asking for flexible working option in the employee engagement survey).

    Advies aan management

    Slightly more trust in employees.

    Thank you for your review. Its a real shame that the only Pro's you can list about the company you work for is the coffee and snacks. Perhaps you should talk with your line manager around your concerns. Whilst we welcome feedback, this isnt particularly constructive in any way nor ...
