    Great service providing work/life balance for others - but none for ourselves!

    Pros

    Great co-workers, offering a professional service that is value-driven and easy to sell.

    Cons

    10.5 hour days with no lunch while we sell "work/life balance" to clients. Base pay is so low (with no commission guarantee) that true professionals and family people (anyone other than a recent college grad) can't afford to take it. It takes over a year to make real money. Hence there is a ton of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some type of commission guarantee for the first 9-12 months so you can get high-end people who will stay.

    Pros

    There is a lot of time off between jobs. If you are a student, you will have plenty of free time between contract assignments to do your homework without interruption.

    Cons

    They take much to long, if at all of following through for confirmation to let you know if you have a job that they asked if you where interested filling.

    Advice to Management

    Please have a better follow through policy.

    Pros

    Will get you a job in accounting/finance with a good company

    Cons

    If you ever worked with them you will know exactly what I am talking about. The recruiter very nice in front of you and acted like they cared about your career but behind your back, they talk mad crap about you. They only care about getting their contract and commissions and very inhuman! If you ever quit when the assignment is ongoing, you will see their true colors, and this is the divisional director that im talking about. If you are desperate for a job, there are PLENTY of great agency out there to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be professional when your people decided to quit on the assignment.

    Pros

    I learned many new things while consulting as an accountant. My recruiters were wonderful, communicative and listened to what I had to say every time.

    Cons

    If you don't interview well, or don't like having a fast paced, dynamic work environment, then consulting isn't for you. I averaged 4 months per project and had to start working from day 1. There was rarely time for formal training, which was the nature of my position. I loved it, many may not.

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive caring staff. Not just about the bottom line, they actually want what's best for you too

    Cons

    Nothing really, just the ones you would expect from a temp agency, so no complaints

    Advice to Management

    Make more information and requirements accessible from website, especially after signing in to view your own account.

    Pros

    Made great effort to find me work.
    Landed permanent position on second job placement.

    Cons

    After finding me work, only called when they wanted inside info about client comp (like what we're they looking for in next temp they hired).
    Told company I was working with, a complaint I specifically told them not to share.
    Charged the company a lot of money and paid me crap.
    Client company low balled me in salary because they knew temp agency wasn't paying me much.

    Advice to Management

    Have more concern for those working for you.

    Pros

    They seem to care whether or not they find a position for you. The interview process was thorough. My contact person appeared to want me connected with the position that is best suited for me.

    Cons

    The pay levels are not consistent for the same type of work. I would've liked to have been put to work the next day, however that wasn't possible.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the breadth of experiences and it confirmed many of my expectations.

    Cons

    None really, it is just a temp agency and it was all I expected.

    Advice to Management

    Considering what they do, I don't think they can do it better.
    Basically, I think they are the best of a (other temp agencies) a rather bad lot.
