I worked at 314e full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Entry-level opportunities: Although school ranking and GPA are considered, 314e hires recent graduates without preference of major and they are willing to train.

Work-life balance: Employees never stay past 5:30pm.

Cons

Employee turnaround rate: As an employee who had worked there for very close to one year, in my time I had seen at the very least 18 other employees leave, whether they had been there for a few months or had been hired only a month previously. It is rare for an employee to stay at 314e past one year. Most employees treat this job as an initial stepping stone or as a temporary job while looking for something or waiting on something else.

Career growth: There is not much room for career growth - after Senior Sales or Senior Recruiting Associate, there is nowhere to go. Senior positions are only two away from entry level positions.

Work environment: Telemarketing environment. Work duties are mundane.There are numbers to meet on both the Sales and Recruiting side.

Lack of professionalism: an unheard of amount of fraternizing among employees.

Lack of quality of benefits: Kaiser plan with co-payments of $30; no dental coverage; 10 pto days by accrual; 2 sick days for the year.

Corporate strategy: 314e's business strategy and growth is stagnant at best. Earlier on in the year, they tried to expand the business by working with a number of different EMRs. Due to lack of organization and progress, they reverted back to working with only one EMR, Epic, which has a number of limitations and requirements that will not allow the company to grow quickly enough. Because they only work with one EMR, their client base is limited and they have heavy competition with other agencies for the same candidates. Moreover, relationships between 314e and candidates/previous employed consultants are poorly maintained and/or tarnished, therefore adding further difficulty to finding candidates to fill jobs.

Micro-management: Managers micro-manage more heavily here than any other company I have every worked for. Managers will also respond to clients and candidates on behalf of an employee through said employee's email account without actual permission from the employee.

Lack of transparency: The best way to describe upper management is that it is a definite 'Boys' Club'. They are also very passive and dishonest, which makes communication almost impossible and severely ineffective and inefficient.

Low morality: Senior management operates on little to no morality:
- Managers will submit resumes on behalf of candidates without having actually received permission from the candidate. They submit these resumes to 'prospects jobs' in hopes of acquiring a new contract. This is misleading to the client as they may be looking at a resume of someone who isn't even interested or available.
- Managers will submit candidate resume to jobs of hospitals they have no relationship with, which is misleading to candidates and explains the lack of call-backs.
- There exists a secret side business with one major Sacramento client that exists purely because of a previous tarnished relationship between 314e's CEO and that hospital. Although it is operating in the same building alongside 314e, it is forbidden to be spoken about and treated as invisible.
- Although it is all a part of the business, 314e will often try to pay consultants far under the rate they deserve. In the time that I was with 314e, I have not seen a client bill rate under $120/hour, and they often go up to $150/hour. Although some consultants manage to achieve $80-90/hour, management will often offer consultants in the $60/hour range. Management will make the Recruiter unwillingly offer this amount and make the Recruiter handle the situation when it backfires.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The lack of honest and positive business relations and lack of actual regard for employees will be the ultimate downfall for this company.

    I have been working at 314e full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to start for recent graduates and no experience is required. All employees are from UC schools. It's not a bad job for new graduates as you learn about how data centers and how electronic medical record systems operate. Salary is alright - begins at 38k and continuously goes up after six or so months.

    It's a great place to work after you gain about nine months of experience and leverage for a large corporation. The industry is growing

    Cons

    Employee retention is not very high. No career growth. No bonuses or commissions until the end of the year (must stay until the end of the year to get a bonus, which is undefined and not explicitly state on any sort of contract). No benefits.

    Work environment is like a sweatshop. In a sense it is a telemarketing company. You will never see the client. If calls aren't made you will be let go. Managers micromanage and day-to-day tasks never change.

    Saw a lot of faces coming and going and lots of interviews.

    Lastly, the industry is growing and career growth within is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging, figure out an incentive program upon recruiters placements and sales closing deals. Maybe its a quarter commission plan or a monthly commission plan. Treat the employees like workers and offer more benefits.

    I worked at 314e full-time

    Pros

    - Good place for new grads
    - Hours are reasonable
    - Work is easy, young in-office environment

    Cons

    - Management is very passive aggressive
    - Dead end in terms of job responsibilities, career growth
    - many false promises from upper management, not enough attention/training to incoming employees
    - No investment in infrastructure/employees
    - No Commission...leads to unmotivated employees (sales and recruiting jobs, yet no pay for performance)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some senior managers, reduce the micro management and change compensation structure to commission
