    I have been working at Softworld full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was approached by Softworld to support a DoD/Intel customer; Softworld is a subcontractor on this contract. From the first call from the recruiter to dealing with Account Manager/PM, and the Director, I've had a 1st class experience. They are completely transparent with updates, feedback, etc, and address all concerns in a timely matter. I also received a healthy pay increase to join this contract. So, in summary, they pay well, they run a great office in the DC area, know their customers and contracts extremely well, and seem to always be available to speak with and address concerns. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive for a family. They seem to make it up with higher pay though. They do not offer much paid training (certifications, etc), but do offer to reimburse from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    If all of your offices have people like the folks in DC, don't change a thing. Other than that, it would help you if you offered more paid training to your people billing on contracts.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company on the rise. Lots of opportunity as a recruiter. Tons of great positions to work on and lots of room for advancement. There have been a number of promotions since I have been here. Recruiters are treated as equals with the sales team. Management is very engaged and involved with the business. I feel like I can go to my manager or any manager in the company for help. I have weekly meetings with my manager, monthly training, and even monthly meetings with my VP! All of these are focused on training and getting better at my job. My last company I maybe talked to my VP twice a year. Here he will actually jump in and help me with a search! I have learned more here this year than the rest of my career combined. I'm also making more money than any other job I've had.

    Cons

    The company has grown so fast that it looks like we are out of space. They just expanded the office but it looks like that filled up pretty fast. Feels cramped at times but it's not that big of a deal.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything! I love it here. Maybe work on the office space but really I am more concerned with having good reqs to work on. There are plenty of those!

    I have been working at Softworld (More than a year)

    Pros

    - open lines of communication - pay is good and on time unless timesheets are approved late - Expectations and processes are clearly defined - Company responds quickly to requests and concerns - Problems are addressed in a timely manner

    Cons

    - Benefits are a tad expensive, especially for a family

    Advice to Management

    Please try to find me something once my current project is complete. Seems to be a challenge for most companies.

    I have been working at Softworld full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have grown from a small start up environment where we had to figure things out to now a fully established corporation with solid policies and procedures which ensures competitive advantage in a super competitive industry. Our ability to service our client's IT needs starts with our internal SLA's with our team of 30+ technical recruiters. Our sales team is seasoned with strong client relationships. Softworld's working environment is truly a team atmosphere where everyone is happy to help one another. With over 300 employees companywide, Softworld successfully competes with the top firms on a national basis, yet is still small and nimble in being able to get things done without red tape or obstacles. Softworld has been a great place to grow and be challenged for the past 16 years. I truly enjoy the job and the great people I get to work with.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. Management is engaging and supportive with strong core values. Compensation and benefits are also very good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The short and long term vision and strategies are solid and sharing them with the team keeps the team motivated and working towards tangible goals.

    Pros

    I've been contracting through Softworld for over 10 years. With recruiters and management that encourage personal growth, Softworld is a company that is as honest and professional as you can get. Their industry knowledge is top notch and their staff is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone looking to augment their staff with the skilled resources that get the job done!

    Cons

    No cons to speak of

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    The company invests in its people. They recently put in a state of the art ATS. There have been a number of new hires made in Recruiting and the talent level of the team is outstanding. They have a diverse client base with great relationships. The company also holds a Top Secret clearance and is able to do things in government staffing that most companies can't. There are plenty of reqs to work on and plenty of recruiters to fill them. The compensation/commission package is outstanding.

    Cons

    With any growing company they will take risks on clients by investing recruiting time. Not really a "con", but with any growing company expectations are high and people are accountable for what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Keep investing. Protect your culture as you grow.
