    It is consulting so if your skills are rusty, consulting give you an opportunity to get back up to speed.

    Benefits are expensive, no time off

    Advice to Management

    If you have a large contingency of employees, consider either giving PTO or paying for client company observed time off

    Pros

    This was a very fun work environment but at the same time you have to work... work hard play hard

    Cons

    Well I truly wish Sales and Recruiting would be getting paid on the same scale. Unfortunately that is a big issue with this company since Sales is on a higher commission scale than Recruiting

    Advice to Management

    Please see my "Cons" comment. It is very important in order to attract good Recruiting talent to make them "equal" to Sales
