    I worked at Bullhorn full-time

    Pros

    amazing culture, great pay, good benefits, most people are great (although there are always a few bad apples), fun office

    Cons

    disorganized management, lack of job specific training for entry-level administrative positions, siloed workforce, expansion is surpassing hiring, less than helpful co-workers (too busy to help new employees)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train not only about the company in general but implement some sort of mentorship program to ensure higher job satisfaction

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

    Pros

    Very much a 'start-up' culture - lots of great perks (free wednesday lunches, friday breakfasts, first thursdays at local bars, summer outing, snacks, drinks, gym, etc. etc.) - these all definitely add to the work experience at Bullhorn

    Clear direction and leadership is transparent with whole company - you know the roadmap of where the company is going and what's being worked on. 'Town Hall' meetings every quarter are super helpful.

    If you do your job and do it well, promotions come quickly

    Cons

    Honestly...I can't really think of anything. I've had several full-time jobs post-college (research firm, tech start up, software company) so I have a few things to compare it to and Bullhorn is by far the best company I've worked for in terms of actual work, work/life balance, and care for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - stay open and transparent. Keep your door open so that anyone in the company - from intern to manager - feels comfortable coming in and talking

    I worked at Bullhorn

    Pros

    Bullhorn has a great culture. Fast growing company with opportunities for professional development

    Cons

    Became too corporate after it was acquired by a portfolio investment company. Salaries are NOT competetive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication between departments. Employees should take more ownership. Make sure that it keeps the same culture as I had 4 years ago. Don't changes managers so often. I had a different manage every 9 months/year! It takes time to build a relationship between an employee and manager.

    Pros

    Good growth and future looks impressive.

    Cons

    Low salary though. I will advice to discuss all the benefits and compensation you need in the first call itself.

    Very impressive

    I worked at Bullhorn as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The colleagues are very helpful.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is it does not have huge team, so there are less expertise.

    Pros

    Semi laid back work environment, young company. Bullhorn sells a great product that employees can truly get behind.

    Cons

    Private Equity company controls nearly all company decisions. Growth has left good employees jobless. Bullhorn is becoming more and more corporate and no longer should ever be classified as a "startup"

    I have been working at Bullhorn

    Pros

    Proactive, outgoing culture. Exciting product. Amazing CEO. Great people, for the most part.

    Cons

    Communication between departments can be lacking. Things have changed culturally as the company has grown. Not as personable anymore, but that happens when you expand to multiple cities/countries/continents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly depends on who your manager is, but several managers could serve well being a little more personable, and a little less robotic.
