    Pros

    All paperwork and testing is done online, very efficient. Everyone I had contact with seemed happy to be working there.

    Cons

    Nothing much to report, really! They even invited subcontract employees to their Christmas party.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It was a privilege to work for you folks

    Pros

    Everything about this company is great. Starting with the people. Everyone is extremely supportive, friendly, helpful, and so many other things. There is not a single person here who I wouldnt go grab a beer with after work. The new compensation plan is extremely rewarding, especially long-term. There is no reason any recruiter (including entry-level) cant be making 6-figures in 2-3 years. We have a game room with foosball and bubble hockey. Our CEO plays bubble hockey with employees on a regular basis. We get massages on pay day.

    Overall, this is a work hard, play hard kind of environment where the employees are taken care of. The culture has drastically improved over the last few months and it is very noticeable. Everyone here is happy and supportive of the company. Arrow will be a successful company for many years to come.

    Cons

    I wouldnt say I have any complaints. Arrow has had issues just like any growing company. The difference is that Arrow has strong leadership and has taken the necessary steps to make the adjustments. The culture wasnt the greatest before but now it is as good as it has ever been.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Arrow Strategies is a people-oriented company. The CEO is very passionate about the culture of Arrow, which is evident in the way Arrow takes care of its employees, both internal and field staff. The camaraderie is like nothing I've experienced. It is truly an environment in which the employees work hard and play hard, and push one another to be better.

    Cons

    There are no cons. If you come in and work hard, there's no reason you won't be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Remain involved with your teams and act a leader as opposed to a manager.

    Pros

    You'll like the other recruiters that you work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Constantly changing directions by management. This makes it difficult to just focus on your job and be successful. Seams like they don't know what it's like to be a Technical Recruiter in the Chicago market. No clear sales strategy with everything focused on two accounts. Relationships with the clients they have are not good.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at yourself and ask if you were a Recruiter would you want to work here?. Don't fool yourself because that is the only person you will be fooling.

    Pros

    The only thing positive was the company's culture back in 2006-2012

    Cons

    Leadership team was brought in from outside the company and changed the culture completely. They are all selfish and expect everything to be handed to them. They talk a lot of work/ life balance which does not exist. Lots of politics and so much trash talking. No respect or trust with any of the leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees that have been there and have proven themselves. How may key employees are going to leave because of the new leadership before you realize they are the cancer of the company.


  7. Decent standard technical recruiting

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    I find the staff very dedicated and always working hard to make sure all employees are happy. Great Pay, Great Benefits, and wonderful events for the whole family to join. I have worked for other companies and I found Arrow to be the best experience thus far.
