Poor management and Horrible company
I would never recommend anyone to this company.

They’ve got poor management. There’s no support or help when you need them.


They don’t give any adequate training but push you around for their own gains.

Good company.
Good company with talented colleagues. Enthusiastic office and field based staff. Colleagues always prepared to support and work with others. The company and its staff always work to deliver quality work for client companies.

Fun work place
Everyday is different, there is a work hard play hard environment. The management in Ashfield allows you to explore your natural talent. The extra training course are helpful and this allows you to gain more practical and theoretical skills.

No home/work life balance at all.
Odd hotel stays in hotels while covering annual leave for other colleagues is okay but then becomes a regular thing. Constantly working out of your normal working hours and also more administration work once your shift has ended. No increase in salary. You have a company car but they are quick to charge you hundreds for “light scuffs” of wear and tear which have accumulated from the long journeys they demand you do.

Tough but worthwhile
A great company to work for however a stressful job. Ashfield care about their people but it is a lonely life working on the road. Good perks such as car.

Productive and a friendly place to work
I enjoy working at Ashfield, everyone is so friendly, I work mainly from home, so manage my own work diary, but support is there as and when you need it, it can be a bit lonely sometimes when out all day on the road, but my colleagues are happy for me to phone them if I need to.
Pros
exspenses paid/ company car
Cons
long journeys

Expected to give your all but will drop you instantly
Horrible work environment. No continuity between managers. Treated as a number, not a person. Very limited room for advancing in the direction you want to go in as you can only apply for a new role once your contract has finished, and then it purely depends on what is available at the time when you are in redeployment. Even then, they're most likely to give the role to a unknowing graduate that has been misinformed about what the role is really like. And then they wonder why they have such a high turnover of staff!! Promised the world in the interview but get nothing in return.

office
Administration type work can be repetitive however the nice company culture/office environment makes up for this slight downside of the 9-5 office job

Terrible Lack of Care
Don't listen to their staff and treat them very poorly. Don't really care about their clients. No proper management structure and staff are treated like numbers not people.
Pros
Freedom to meet new people
Cons
Have to pay for uniform - poor managers

Likely to be advertised as permanent roles - misleading!
Contract based work which is not highlighted at interview, in job descriptions etc.
Interesting work and varied.

Head office is a good place to work, easily accessible.

Subsidised restaurant.
Pros
Work environment / building is a lovely place to work.
Cons
Contract client based work / contracts can finish quickly or unexpectantly.

Disagree with other comments
I have worked for Ashfield on sales contracts. Never found them a bad company to work with despite over 20 years in the pharma industry both on contracts or head count. Maybe depends on the contract you are on? I have heard that there is a lot of complaints re cars going back and being charged for. Simple regard it and take if it's your own and not a problem!!! We know it's a contracting company, but I have known many people to have worked here for years it suits well and may lead to head count posts or senior rep allowing a better car if that is your thing.
Only one downside I see is sometimes salary not in the top bracket but if that's the case move on to a pharma company. Cars good enough for the job and good pension scheme if you wish,only my personal thoughts and experience
Pros
Never had a problem 😁
Cons
No long term security depending on contract but know folks who have been here for years
