Digital Specialist (Former Employee), MelbourneSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: achievement focus
Cons: poor systems, one size fits all model
I was employee number one of Michael Page Digital Melbourne and during my time there I was able to generate revenue, grow a team and was heavily involved in the business development. The role teaches you about extensive people management along with teaching you how to read a situation. The hardest part of the job was that there was no Michael Page Digital – more... and we set up the division from a standstill. – less

Fun work Place
Team Administrator (Current Employee), LondonJuly 29, 2014
Pros: we celebrate when we have done a hards day work. (like a reward)
Cons: there is no more progression for me.
Michael Page is a lovely company too work for, the vibe you feel and get is wonderful.

At Michael Page they work hard and play hard.
The best part about my job is the fact I am left to get on with it! My Director is so confident in what I do that he lets me get on with it and this give me so much confident in what I do and I aspire not to let him or – more... my team down. – less

Great place to work
Sr. Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Boston, MAMay 20, 2014
Pros: very supportive to the contractors working for them
Cons: never heard back after the contrract ended to be placed again.
I very much enjoyed dealing with Caroline Neble at Michael Page. I was placed at Biogen Idec at the corporate offices in Weston. I immediately hit it off with the Executive Assistant in compliance. I very much enjoyed the job and most of the people were fantastic and professional. I supported three Senior Directors/lawyers in Compliance. This role was – more... very interesting and challenging. There were some personality conflicts that existed prior to my being placed there. Since it was my job to support the person who was involved in one of the conflicts, I did all I could to make his day easier and go the extra mile for him, against the suggestions of the person who had obvious problems with him.
I very much enjoyed it there for the most part and missed the people I had supported once my contract was ended. – less

Summer Trainee (Internship) (Former Employee), Hong KongMay 8, 2014
Pros: bonuses are great
Cons: long hours (lunch hours and after work hours are the prime time you get to meet clients)
Nice training in the beginning which assists you to be more effective and productive later on

The more time and effort you put in the job, the more reward and pay you get during quarter end & year end

May get tedious or repetitive (typical for position like this)

Not a friendly or professional environment
Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee), Edison, NJFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: the internet and telephones often worked.
Cons: everything
This company feeds off of its young in a cannibalistic fashion. Upper management will use new hires to farm out jobs and good candidates. You will be out of a job in 3 months if you don't write roughly your base salary in a quarter. You will not bonus unless you write roughly 4 times your base salary.

If you are not an established recruiter, you will – more... not make it here. If you ARE an established recruiter, you will not want to stay here. – less
