    -Recruitment can be long hours, but that's the nature of recruitment -Lack of parking on site -The roller-coaster of sales can be tough but you learn to develop thick skin quickly

    Rat an das Management

    Overall a great place to work in my opinion. I'm in my third year and am still enjoying it. The incentives are great and keep me interested to push each month.

    Pros

    Good people (members of staff) and a good working environment. Some of the incentives are good, others are not so. The managers within the business are fair

    Kontras

    The commission structure is not all as it seems and is evidently not that great. Sometimes you are treated like children with the lack of autonomy

    Ich habe bei Penguin Recruitment gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The staff- resilient despite the madness and always offering support to each other, had some great times with them in the office and outside. The 'pod skippers' - calling these people managers would lead you to thinking they actually manage, but this is done from the top. However, the managers I had the pleasure of working with were superb characters and a big help day-to-day. Some incentives worth praising, notably...

    Kontras

    Micromanagement from the top - the managers have little influence, you know everything comes from above them and the frequent 'business updates' leave you little time to recruit. Being called Penguins repeatedly. Lack of career progression.

    Rat an das Management

    Allow your managers to actually manage and the teams might grow.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We would of course prefer all our employees to build a long career at Penguin, but I fully accept the reality of the competitive, commercial world we live in and that a percentage of people come and go in every organisation. We do ...

    Ich habe bei Penguin Recruitment gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Due to the 360 nature of the job Penguin is actually a great place to cut your recruitment teeth - you have to do everything bar chasing payments - so you learn quickly how to do advertising campaigns, searches, the interview process, offer management, Canvassing for business etc... It sets you up well for your next job in recruitment. There are decent team incentives - days out, sporting events, Lavish Meals, go-karting...

    Kontras

    There was a culture of checking / micromanagement which came from the very top. Regular 'business updates', internal emails being monitored etc Being a smallish firm it's a very flat structure and with a settled management team in place it is hard to progress beyond being a good billing consultant. I was often distracted by petty battles amongst management as to which radio station was playing, whether doors windows...

    Rat an das Management

    Treat people like adults. Referring to consultants as 'Penguins' and running interview countdowns based on e.g. 'your favourite Disney character' just gave the impression sometimes that we were working in a school rather than a professional sales office.

    Pros

    The people who work at Penguin are good fun Some managers were good. Although most were not managers Some incentives were good

    Kontras

    Often treated like a child Micromanaged from the top down No career progression. Financially only benefits the two directors. Even those next on the ladder seem to be a million miles away. What is there to aim for?

    Listen to what motivates people Stop micromanaging and let the managers manage Give your staff something to aim for

    Thank you for the review. Again I find myself wondering why we have suddenly been subjected to an influx of negative reviews, having received almost none in the previous 13 years of our existence. To all job seekers out there, I again ask that you contact us directly at Penguin to ...

    Pros

    Good summer and winter incentives

    Kontras

    Going to play on a trampoline or bowling doesnt provide motivation for an adult billing in access of £100k. Can be treated quite childlike at times. No reason to want to become a team leader / manager.

    What can I say – You can’t please all of the people all of the time. Incentives and team building activities are part of our DNA. In the last 2 months we have been surfing, paddleboarding and Go Ape as well as all expenses paid trips to Ascot Races and Alton Towers. So we do try ...

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 8 Jahren bei Penguin Recruitment (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Great earning potential with generous rewards. They say a workplace is nothing without good people and this place certainly has some of the best people I've had the pleasure of working with. Also the directors have made a big push forward to grow individual's career prospects as well as business through continual money and time investment!

    Kontras

    Long working hours, however this is made better by the early finishes, end of month incentives and late starts we are regularly rewarded with.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep up the good work...

    Penguin offer exciting team building activities, substantial bonus scheme and great incentives!

    Negative Prognose

    Ich habe bei Penguin Recruitment gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Playing the radio, nice in the summer, wireless headsets.

    Kontras

    Very male-dominated, incentives are lies, insensitive towards family bereavements, intrusive about personal situations whether that be medical, emotional etc. hire and fire company, don't pay employees money correctly, unprofessional.

    Rat an das Management

    Don't offer incentives just to take them away once they are hit.
