    Pros

    Most Glassdoor reviews are posted by employees who have recently left a company and want to publicly air their grievances. This review is the exact opposite. I worked as a recruitment consultant for Nicoll Curtin in Zurich for over two years and had an exceptionally positive experience and left only very reluctantly.

    The consultants are all friendly, easy-going, and hard-working. The level of camaraderie is very high. It is a great mix of people – many nationalities, many different levels of experience in recruitment. Everyone is quick to share leads and support one another. There is a lot of positive synergy, which is not the case in many recruitment agencies.

    The management does an excellent job of providing an outstanding platform for individual consultants to grow their networks. There are ample opportunities to both manage key accounts and develop new accounts. New hires without industry experience are given lots of training and support, and veteran recruiters are given freedom to build their business within the business. There is not an obsession with KPIs but rather a focus on end results. Consultants are not micromanaged but rather treated as adults. If a consultant struggles for a period, he or she is given additional support and a very generous amount of time to find his or her footing again. Again, this is unusual by industry standards, since most agencies are quick to terminate someone as soon as results begin to dip.

    The compensation is highly competitive. The commission structure is impossible to beat in Zurich, and the base pay, while historically lower than large agencies, has been steadily rising. Consultants have the ability to earn whatever sort of targets they set for themselves; the sky truly is the limit since there is no cap on commission.

    The office is impressive: new, bright, well appointed, spacious, and is conveniently located in the heart of Zurich. Consultants are very proud to invite candidates and clients to the office for face to face discussions.

    Support staff in Zurich is incredibly competent, professional, and truly enthusiastic about helping the recruiters. Because of this excellent operational support, recruiters are able to focus on their sales tasks and don't have to devote time unnecessarily to administrative issues.

    All these ingredients add up to a wonderful place to work, whether you are new to the industry or a veteran recruiter. As a point of proof, the staff retention rate is excellent.

    In short, at the Nicoll Curtin office in Zurich you’ll find great recruiters earning great pay led by great managers and backed by a great brand.

    Kontras

    A few consultants (and I was included in this group) aren't German speakers (not a massive con anyway), but most recent hires have been German speakers and that is supposed to be a higher priority moving forward.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep hiring good people and giving them the freedom to succeed in their own ways, and the company will continue to grow!

    Pros

    - Excellent career progression plan. From day one you receive full support from the management and excellent training program which help you develop quicker than in other recruitment companies. It does not matter how old you are or how long you have been in the business, you have the opportunity to develop and to decide which path you want your career to go.
    - Very competitive base salaries and excellent commission scheme.
    - Knowledgeable management with proven track record in the recruitment business.
    - Beautiful spacious office in the centre of Zurich (free coffee, tea, breakfast, fruit)
    - The company provides lots of incentives if you perform well (flexi time, monthly/quarterly events, paid business trips, high flyers trips etc.)

    Kontras

    - Nothing. The company went through some changes in the past and the business in the right position now.

    Pros

    None - terrible company - would never recommend.

    Kontras

    The worst company I have ever worked for. No company culture of caring about the employees. It 100% focused on KPIs, the minutes you were on the phone, in the toilet and BD even if that wasn't in your job description. I felt uncomfortable and dreaded going to work. It was unsupportive with the worst management. The work hours are a complete lie as you were watched if you left on time.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Nicoll Curtin gearbeitet (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Good technology and office itself is a nice place to be in a great location with beautiful views and recently refurbed.

    Kontras

    General recruitment cons: very young staff environment so not that mature overall, very high staff turn over, long hours and expectation to stay after 6.30. Lack of direction.

    Rat an das Management

    Focus more on employee engagement and maybe do some research into the benefits it could bring to your company, especially given the unstable world of recruitment that you operate within.

    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter in Zürich

    Pros

    Some friendly, experienced / competent, and very driven / ambitious people working there
    Benefits / social events / rewards for high achievers
    Great new office - office environment is top, plus location
    If you fit into that environment and deliver, you can progress rapidly
    International, young team, generally smart and friendly people
    Great for someone with a range of language skills
    Really great Head of Learning and Development who takes the time to make sure people understand the material covered and knows how to encourage people
    Possibility to shape where company is going
    (Relatively flat hierarchy)

    Kontras

    (Management) seems to be under very high pressure to deliver results very quickly
    A few people (from the same team) were fired, within a short time span
    Whilst I cannot judge this, it has been said that the CEO - despite all the positive points - has no or very little idea of recruitment
    (Some people in the team seem quite stressed - even if it’s not noticeable at first sight or some won’t admit it)
    Some conflicting views between key stakeholders on how to best train new employees
    Pressure to deliver / fast moving environment leads to other cons that are obviously interconnected - quantity vs. quality as a general point of criticism for recruitment agencies - however, v. competitive industry so hard to balance
    People used to a very ‘Swiss / structured’ way of working or have worked in completely different environments may not feel comfortable here - always depends though
    Being consistently caring / detail-oriented might be incompatible with the work environment at times
    Not sure if co. mn. truly / fully realizes that what works in the UK / in other areas won’t necessarily work in Switzerland + if ‘flattering candidates’ with IT / financial services background who are highly skilled and sought-after is possible in such a fast-paced environment
