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

    Pros

    This is a fantastic place to work if you thrive in a fast-paced environment. There is not a lot of hand holding or restrictions - understand the vision, set goals and deliver results. It's just that simple. If you want a super structured, 'act like a robot' type workplace, this is not for you

    Cons

    As with any company that is fast paced and undergoing big changes, there is sometimes gaps in communication and processes. Every company faces it; we will get these gaps closed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the path we are on. We have a great direction and need to stick to our guns on how we get there!

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time

    Pros

    Great people. Relaxed Atmosphere. Was able to build department from the ground up. Overall it was a pleasant place to work , while it lasted.

    Cons

    Outsourced Entire IT Department. With almost no notice, started cutting jobs, outsourcing all positions to overseas. When quality slipped, the reaction was to blame the inhouse staff, who was against the overseas idea in the first place.

    Thanks for your feedback, I'm not sure what you are referencing as our IT department is IN HOUSE. We do not outsource any of our departments.

    Company in Transition

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation commensurate with experience. Decent employee benefits with above average employer contributions. Smart people who want to see the company succeed.

    Cons

    Company was very much in transition when I joined to rebuild a sales team. Although I presumed best intentions when I joined, I disrupted 9 lives when I hired them only to see them terminated 5 months later.

    Advice to Management

    Put a plan in place and stick to it. Again, presuming best intentions, the company has had 4 CEO's in the past 4 years

    I worked at Alphastaff part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None exist at this point. This company is a black hole.

    Cons

    Very toxic environment at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Fire top management and close the company. Owners are being misled.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Competitively priced health insurance.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Zero thought leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Find a team of management professionals that are humble, driven, passionate, and committed to the business as a whole rather than simply making the next sale.

    Pros

    Access to the executive team and not being micro-managed. Results driven bonus structure works well for me.

    Cons

    long hours, more community type of events would be nice. Additional bonus opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Define the roles and opportunity for advancement within the company better. Continue doing the community lunches for the holidays and bagels on Friday's.

    Pros

    They used to allow employees to have the flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Worst company to work for. They do not care for the employees at all.

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Feels good to leave each day. Makes you appreciate your time off. Other than that there is nothing good to say.

    Cons

    Low pay with out the possibility of a review or raise. Unqualified management team without a clue how to run a business. Executive team is too busy playing office to actually run the business. Executive team does not trust anyone including its own employees. Management holds grudges, if you make a mistake you may as well quit (which would be a good option)

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors. Just accept that this company is doomed to fail. Four executive teams in just as many years means no consistency. The company is a roller coaster ride that ends at a brick wall. Give it up.

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to gain valuable experience with new job duties. Having an information system that was outdated actually worked to my advantage. I was able to learn some basic skills pertaining to system implementation processes, data interfaces and migrations, and data configuration.

    Cons

    There was very poor management and executive conflicts of interest going on between the organization and its investors. Employees were at a free-for-all. There was no consistency in processes, one department did not effectively communicate with the other, and seasoned employees refused to adjust to positive and more productive process improvements. We may have been working on the same project and 3 different people were using 3 different processes which conflicted. There was no teamwork concept and management did not enforce best practices AT ALL. At some point, I was actually doing my managers job and was not getting any recognition for it. This may have been the 2nd worse company I have ever worked for. If I did my research like I was supposed to prior to my offer, I would have NEVER accepted this position.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I have no idea what to say. When issues and conflicts of interests were clearly going on far before my tenure, it is hard for me to determine what to advise. All I can say is start cleaning at the top and work your way to the bottom. Bring in a management team that will still to their guns and enforce what's best for the organization. And if their subordinates who are seasoned and been with the company for a while don't like it, they can find another job.
