Mala gestora: Empresas pensad un poco antes de contratar
Diseño (Former Employee) –  Barcelona, Barcelona provinciaJanuary 14, 2019
No puedo hablar bien de esta empresa ya que sus procesos son siempre iguales. Te llaman una sola vez, para sacarte información, una vez lo tienen, aunque encajes en el perfil no te llaman. Casualidades de la vida, al final acabé entrando en una empresa que ellos me habian descartado. Meses después, me entero que ellos son los que contrataron a un personaje que acabaron echando de la compañía por ser mal profesional, una perdona que insultaba a sus subordinados y que además era falso todo lo que decía en su curriculum. Empresas pensad un poco antes de contratar los servicios se esta gente...
Pros
Aparentan ser lo que no son

Pésima empresa para trabajar, hostigamiento no se respeta horario laboral
Analista de Reclutamiento y Selección (Former Employee) –  Santiago de Chile, Región MetropolitanaDecember 17, 2018
Trabaje 3 meses en esta empresa, los objetivos impuestos nunca fueron bien claros no se explicaron en detalle.
Las condiciones higiénicas de la oficina dejaban que desear, un comedor apto para 5 personas y un baño para 3 personas por genero para mas de 50 personas!.
Mi jefatura constantemente hostigaba a mis colegas y a mi para cumplir los objetivos semanales siendo que el apoyo prestado en los primeros meses era prácticamente núlo.
Definitivamente no recomiendo esta empresa para trabajar, si bien los salarios son de acuerdo al mercado, no vale la pena.
Pros
Salario de acuerdo al mercado.
Cons
Horario laboral extenso y prolongado. Muchas horas extras!!

Facilities and Purchase Coordinator - Argentina (Former Employee) –  Capital Federal, Buenos AiresDecember 27, 2018
Una organización cuya cultura fomenta las buenas relaciones interpersonales,
Un día típico iniciado entre las 8 y las 9 de la mañana, con desafíos nuevos todos los días,
Aprendí de la gestión del tiempo, el trato políticamente correcto con el cliente interno
Mi superior, Director financiero regional, un gran profesional y ser humano siempre dispuesto a ayudar

Ambiente de trabajo hostil
Consultor (Former Employee) –  Santiago de Chile, Región MetropolitanaNovember 12, 2018
El ambiente de trabajo en Michael Page Chile es hostil. Si bien se motiva a las personas otorgándole la posibilidad de un rápido crecimiento, estas, en su mayoría, al llegar a ser lideres, no cuentan con las habilidades necesarias para tener gente a cargo, lo que lleva, por ende, a la alta rotación que tienen.
Es común que menosprecien tu trabajo en presencia de otras personas, a través de sarcasmos o incluso gritos. También que te se "sugieren" con que personas puedes hablar, y con cuales no. Controlando no solo el tiempo dentro del trabajo, sino que también la vida privada.
Pros
Desarrollo profesional rápido
Cons
Mal ambiente laboral

El ejemplo de una empresa que tiene casi ninguna competencia
Consultor Senior (Former Employee) –  Madrid provinciaSeptember 5, 2018
Esta empresa no sabe gestionar los candidatos

... los consultor cambian cada seis meses
.... no contestan al teléfono
.... no contestan al email
.... están perdidos en un mundo muy lejo de las preocupaciones de las candidatos

.....
y te preguntan de rellenar hojas y de hacer una entrevista para actualizar tu perfil

..... pero todo este proceso no sirve para nada porque nunca y nadie te van a volver a llamar
Pros
Ningunos
Cons
Follow-up de tu perfil

Incompetence overall
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Sydney Central Business District NSWSeptember 2, 2018
I have been a casual applicant for 5 years and the excuse of not paying on time is loosing citizenship or identification or system breakdown of payroll portal.
This occurs every once or twice every 3 months, simply handling of time sheets very slow.
The meaning of busy is not competent to eradicate priority.
I have been casual with several recruiting agencies in Sydney, this is the worst job handlers to be known. Also there are fake reviews and it is definitly on this forum.
Pros
Long lunch breaks
Cons
Not available

Great team, long hours and low $$
ASSOCIATE CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSWAugust 27, 2018
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

MAL ambiente laboral
Consultor (Former Employee) –  Santiago de Chile, Región MetropolitanaNovember 12, 2018
Michael Page es una empresa multinacional que tiene gran relevancia y magnitud en el mercado. Por lo tanto ofrece oportunidades de viajar, crecer rápido y conectarte con otros países. Sin embargo el ambiente en Chile deja bastante que desear, constantemente te hablan de lo increíble que es la empresa (lavado de cerebro), NO se preocupan del ambiente laboral, los rumores de pasillo son la prioridad, te dicen con quien DEBES juntarte.
Los horarios son de 09:00am a 07:00pm (de lunes a viernes) con un supuesto Articulo°22 que jamas respetan, controlando vía WSP, incluso, las visitas al medico.
Se ofrecen soluciones para "mejorar" a los lideres, pero estas son malas practicas ya comunes en la empresa, practicas de abuso, hostigamiento son minimizadas ante jefaturas, provocando la sensación de no saber donde acudir, y bueno, finalmente ponen mucha mas atención en el "carrete" de cada mes.
Pros
Empresa Multinacional
Cons
Mal ambiente laboral

Ce qui se fait de pire dans le domaine
Chargé de recherche (Current Employee) –  Neuilly-sur-Seine (92)September 7, 2018
Un joli logo, de jolis costumes et de jolis sourires.
Mais à part ça, comme le relate un autre avis, nous sommes dans le médiocre et le grotesque d'une entreprise "anglo-saxonne" qui pressurise ses employés pour quelques € de plus.
Pros
Un nom sur le CV (quoique ça peut aussi être négatif)
Cons
Tout le reste

Michael Page was good at finding the type of work you're looking for. They also gather all information about the job prior to them calling you to see if you're interested. I would definitely refer others to Michael Page temp agency

ottima scuola
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Milan, ITDecember 16, 2018
ottima scuola, percorso formativo sul business, è un'azienda con un focus sulle attività e sulla strutturazione di un metodo, questo porta a molti sacrifici in fase iniziale che verranno poi ricompensati

En casa de herrero, cuchillo de palo
Consultor (Former Employee) –  Santiago de Chile, Región MetropolitanaNovember 13, 2018
- Nula calidad de vida
- Kpi lejos de la realidad
- Viste algún reality? (Solo puedes conversar en los baños)
- Crecimiento rápido (como toda empresa piramidal), no te ofrecen capacitaciones certificadas (fuera de la empresa) o estudios de perfeccionamiento lo que implica líderes enfocados en facturar y decirte día a día que debes “pagarte”
- Horarios típicos 9-20hrs, ojalá horario de colación frente al Pc
- Al momento de la salida de algún colega, se habla mal de él (Michael Page nunca pierde)
- Cuestinamiento constante de tu profesionalismo ante todos, por lo que te hace ser inseguro
- Medida de “mejora de ambiente laboral”, carretes de fin de mes donde las gerencias te hacen beber ( fiesta desenfrenada)
- Sueldo líquido real, camuflado con gratufaciones
- Si eres de clase media o clase baja, esta no es tu empresa, la discriminacion está por todas partes
- No hay valores dentro de la compañía (evitar hablar de alguna persona ya sea cliente, compañero o entrevistado), prepotencia y competitividad
Pros
Seguro de salud
Cons
Poco trabajo en equipo

Difficult to progress if your face doesn't fit
Consultant (Former Employee) –  NorthMay 15, 2018
Great training, well known firm with a good client base. Can be extremely "cliquey" and certain people are clearly favoured for a fast track to management.

Commission is discretionary - and nobody really has any idea how it's worked out.

Management capability depends totally on which team you join unfortunately, and there is not really much consistency between managers.

Will not pay you on time
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 7, 2018
Inefficiency from the UK to NY. Will give you the runaround regarding payment. You will have to chase them to ensure that your payment comes in on time... and it still won't come in on time. You'll additionally be fed lies regarding a 'faulty system' which only affects 10 employees and a lack of petty cash in their NY office... Do not work here if you actually need the money which is rightfully yours.
Cons
untimely pay

Official response from Michael Page
May 10, 2018

The sustainability of our business relies on our candidates. Whether we are making advisements or paying our temps, it is of the utmost importance for us to deliver on everything we promise. That being said, I apologize if there has been an error with payroll, so please contact me directly so we can ensure the problem is solved. No company is impervious to technical glitches regardless of size. Furthermore, PageGroup Consultants will never force a candidate to take a job – it is ultimately the candidates prerogative to accept or decline the job offers. Thank you. Richard Vickers, Regional Managing Director.
