    Pros

    Never seen anything like this before.

    Cons

    This is the place of evil.. Do not work for them. They are not interested in finding quality talent and bringing them onboard. They are interested in processes only and making sure they cover their butts if there is a mistake. Never seen anything like this in 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Check your people's success at what they are there to do. Look and see what is happening or not happening in the market. Check to see if they are completing their specific job responsibilities. There is no avenue to try and discuss problems with out getting in huge trouble. This is a horrible place to work.

    I have been working at Allegis Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relationship focused environment that creates good dynamic between employees

    Cons

    Sometimes can be too focused on emotions and not enough about getting the actual job done. They are always wanting you to share your feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on what is truly important.

    I worked at Allegis Group full-time

    Pros

    Worked on a good contract. So, the pay was decent. Management was great!!

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be a lot of room for growth. No salary increases during my tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better opportunities/contracts for advancement.

    I worked at Allegis Group full-time

    Pros

    Has accounts with multiple firms. Works in different business sectors.

    Cons

    Treated like a temporary employee within host company. Little support from Allegis once you are placed. Benefits aren't great (401k plan is awful). Management is hands off and if something does go wrong, they won't talk to the employee until it is too late to fix. High turnover. Very little training. Lengthy and messy hiring process. No support when a placement ends.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees; check in often to see how their placement is going. And when there is an issue, be open and upfront about it so that you and the employee can work together to find a positive solution instead of coming to them out of the blue.


  10. Run from this company - fraudulent and sues former employees at the drop of a hat. Do your due diligence research.

    Pros

    You can work with some high level clients- but as a commission-based sales person, it is up to your efforts to close these deals yourself with no help or infrastructure from the company. You will compete against your own recruiters internally. Recruiters act fraudulent to try and close deals.

    Cons

    Too many to list.... A lot of fraud in the management. They will throw the younger, less experienced employees under the boss to cover their tracks (read the lawsuits pertaining to Maxim Healthcare, an Allegis owned company where billionaire and Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Biscouti had a large stake in the company); "Cover your hyde" work environment, low pay and will cut your commissions and take credit for your work.

    Advice to Management

    Be ethical. Get in some new blood- the owner Steve Biscouti seems to like to keep his inner circle close to him... all the high level employees have worked for one of his existing companies- Major, Lindsey & Africa, Maxim Healthcare, Aerotek.... most are not qualified for the high level positions. At Major, Lindsey & Africa- their CEO Simon Robinson doesn't even have a college degree and was a waiter before he worked at Aerotek but he is close friends with the Allegis higher ups....
