    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.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering a proven path of success for us to follow

    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 Management

    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!

    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. I worked with Project Managers that carefully took the time to train me so that I will be able to manage a team under me. Work hard, play hard.

    No concerns with the company at the moment

    Advice to Management

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

    Executive search business is can be up and down If you do not have solid sales skills or the ability to learn fast this business is not for you. Big money is made on straight commission

    Pros

    Great Pay Great Benefits Outstanding Leadership One of the best places to work in the East Bay! This company is driven to succeed and has been doing so for years. I watched it grow from a start-up to one of the fastest growing companies in the East Bay. Even today they are delivering quality service at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Service Fees are high, but so is the quality of work. This is one of those companies that will go above and beyond to service the client. They take your calls day or night and have a can-do attitude. I have seen them take on some of the most challenging searches you can imagine and they came through with flying colors! Nothing really negative to say about this company. QUALITY!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've been a success for a long time, and there is no reason that should change! You are fair to your employees and expect greatness from them... and they deliver!
