    Decent standard technical recruiting

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Arrow Strategies

    Pros

    Aggressive agents stay in fairly frequent contact as they dig up a job for you.

    Cons

    Benefits are total crap, like every temp agency. Time off is abysmal for someone used to working higher level technical positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people more time off. Give some kind of real benefits. Give some incentive to stay with your company - of course I imagine arrow management would disregard this advice since their business model is based on a revolving door of people getting placed in permanent positions and ceasing to be Arrow assets.

    To date there have not been any cons to my interactions with the company and their staff.

    Pros

    Got me a job. Worked through the process pretty well.

    Cons

    Need better communication. Turn over for recruiters is pretty high which means you get switched around a lot.

    - They do not have processes set, very hectic & little training provided
    - Only one main account (HCSC) does well
    - Micromanagement is apparent. They are extremely "numbers" oriented

    I have been working at Arrow Strategies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good location, pleasant office space

    Cons

    Toxic culture, double standard for different employee groups, rampant nepotism, high turnover in the ranks and in management at high levels. Unlimited PTO is a sham, if you take it you are criticized. Very high pressure and unrealistic expectations. This company is in trouble and management just keeps doing the same thing it has done for twelve years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should realize that because they SAY there is a great culture at Arrow it does not make it true. THE staffing business has changed and the company must change with it.

    Pros

    Provided fast interview and quick hiring. This really had nothing to do with Arrow, but my interview.

    Cons

    You will not get paid for a month
    Poor representation to client
    Does not know client work flow
    Employees are very rude and unhelpful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide faster pay turn around, and fire the extremely rude employees ( controllers and HR people )

    I worked at Arrow Strategies

    Pros

    Quick placement. Accts managers frequently meet employees and the hiring managers. Offer meetings, lunch gatherings, celebrations in which families can also participate.

    Cons

    Even after 2 years earning money to this consulting firm on a same contract, it is hard to get a raise. Owners and management keeps most of the billing rate though the real employees-consultants work hard to keep the clients happy thus keeping the contracts going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay decent percentage rom billing rate and near or above market average
