    I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working full-time since July 2013 and can honestly say I continue to look forward to coming to work every day.

    Here are some of the reasons why I love working at RSI:
    Corporate Culture - encourages goal setting and personal and professional growth, very motivational
    Fantastic opportunity to learn how to handle yourself on the phone, how to influence people, manage your time and priorities, set and hit goals
    Surrounded by strong and successful role models who continue to grow and stretch
    Many ways to be recognized - even if working part-time, everyone can win
    Company invests time and energy in providing continuous sales training, goal setting and other success-building techniques
    Diverse group of people makes it enjoyable to learn from co-workers with various backgrounds
    Work with clients coming from a wide range of industries, geographic locations and skill sets
    Collaborative environment - mentoring encouraged
    Clear communication regarding expectations
    Love the unfailing recognition for birthdays, anniversaries and personal family events
    Snacks, drinks, several fun outings, very nice holiday celebrations
    Open-door policy with upper management - always asking our feedback and suggestions for how to do what we do more efficiently
    Top of the line tools like Apple equipment and very nice headsets for hands-free communication

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons to working here. If you do what you are hired to do, you have ample opportunity to grow personally and professional and earn a solid income.

    I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have the perspective at this company from different levels, starting as an intern 4 years ago working part-time while in college and since being promoted twice and a full-time employee. The training and mentoring I've received along the way has been invaluable to my growth.

    This is one of the few places where you truly get out what you put in. It is a very results-focused environment with unlimited growth potential both responsibility-wise and financially. Also work-life balance is crucial for me and this is a great place providing an opportunity to work hard and succeed financially without working crazy hours.

    The culture is unique in that it is very professional and goal/metrics driven as stated above but also is a very collaborative and fun team environment. No politics are present (or if there are they are addressed quickly).

    We have monthly company sushi lunch outings, annual sports outings and an annual performance trip to Maui!

    Leadership is very engaged and approachable when it comes to feedback or change.

    Cons

    Training meetings get repetitive at times for those of us who have been with the company for a number of years but necessary for newer employees who have not heard it yet. Perhaps, time permitting, having separate meetings based on seniority and experience level would be a good suggestion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very receptive to feedback and also is inspirational, being very energetic and fast-paced. This reflects in the company culture which does a good job in effectively pushing productivity; keep up the great work!

    Current Employee - Videographer/Editor in San Ramon, CA

    I have been working at Reaction Search International part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was hired a little while ago to be a videographer and editor for the company and it's been a very smooth transition into the work environment. My interview was relaxed and everyone in the office space is warm and welcoming. Doing good work is emphasized and hard work is rewarded. Compensation and hours are more than reasonable.

    Cons

    As a videographer I'm making videos that help benefit the company. The frustrating thing is not being able to shoot stuff when I have my equipment with me. I completely understand that people are busy, but when you pre plan to shoot something and it doesn't get shot on the date, it's not helping the project.

    Pros

    I started working with Reaction Search International right out of college with no recruiting experience. The company has an excellent training process that will give you all the tools necessary to be successful. A very rewarding environment with lots of growth potential.

    Cons

    No concerns with the company at the moment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    training for time management for employees will be very helpful in this environment.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Ramon, CA

    I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent paid internships for college students. Starting salary for recent college grads is in the industry's average for the East Bay and small bumps in salary are possible, based on performance. Good opportunity to learn about the recruitment industry. Incentive trip for full-time recruiters who meet annual revenue goal. Casual dress code. Located in a nice business park.

    Cons

    Contrary to what it's name suggests, this company does not have international operations. This is a family owned business where the "management team" is one man in just one office. Because the organization is so small, there is zero room for growth - but they will always say the sky is the limit. Commissions and bonuses are below industry average. No training program. Lack of professionalism from management, often emotional, gossiping and talking behind other people's back.
