I have been working at Eliassen Group full-time for more than a yearPros
Company parties, trips for top performers, company outings
Lots of reqs to work on even though they tend to be low quality or VMS
There are some really friendly people on the floor.Cons
Where to begin? As a Recruiter, they promised me all sorts of things coming in the door. They described a culture that is very far from reality. I was told that it is about performance based on results and not about phone calls and metrics. This is just not true. No matter how many deals I close in a month if my phone calls/time are not on par I get spoken to.
I was told that Eliassen was different from the "sweat shops" that exist in staffing. I was told this and then they hire and promote a large management team directly from KForce who seems to be installing the "KForce Way" of doing things which in my opinion is a "sweat shop" approach. Things have gotten so bad that I have lost track of the number of senior Account Executives and Recruiters who have left the company. They really sold me hard on how long their employees stay with them. Since I have been here I have seen a number of people with 10+years of experience here leave. Some of these people had big numbers on the board. Just doesn't make sense.
It is a young and inexperienced staff of recruiters. I was told they like to hire people with experience but there are so many kids here right out of school. Again seems to be the Big Staffing Company approach. There is way more VMS work then I was lead to believe. So many positions that lack manager contact which as a recruiter is very frustrating.
It is really to bad. I thought I was joining a quality organization but they seem lost now. I think they could still be great but they lack leadership and direction.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I think you are all trying to do what you think is the right thing but something is not clicking. I am not entirely convinced you are all in the right roles with the right job titles. Some of the people you have promoted leave us scratching our heads. Stop trying to be like every other large staffing firm out there and I think you will find that your results will improve. It might be time for an outside perspective that doesn't come from KForce.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
