I have been working at Accolo

Pros

The openness to new ideas and respect shown to all employees is great. The culture at Accolo is driven by John and the rest of the executive team to reward people for taking chances while allowing for mistakes. Fun group of people in the Larkspur office and across the U.S.

Cons

Being at a small growing company can be an exercise in patience with ever changing priorities and budget challenges, but this is to be expected at a small company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on one or two things that will grow the company most and don't try to accomplish everything at once, this will allow employees to focus and finish well.

    Pros

    Visionary CEO
    Compelling work environment for strong performers
    Unique business model that is evolving for the better

    Cons

    Lack of vibrant hiring economy still impacting overall company growth...though we are told new business is growing faster than ever

    Initial deployment of Hiring Consultant Network has some kinks to work out but has great potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on how to compensate Hiring Consultants more for harder to fill positions
    Accelerate development of the platform....best ATS available in the market but under marketed
    Focus even more on client satisfaction

    I have been working at Accolo

    Pros

    Accolo pays Hiring Consultants (contract recruiters) for recruiting-related activities completed which is a boon for those who've worked contingent assignments that fell through the cracks. Accolo is a Recruitment Process Outsource company which means they manage the recruiting process for companies who pay a nominal fee up front. Accolo Recruiters get paid even if they don't place a candidate.

    Cons

    One of the many caveats of working for Accolo is their client base is unsophisticated, B/C player types of companies who haven't worked with Recruiters before and are using this service to save money. Accolo management is over worked and overwhelmed and are tantrum-prone.

    At Accolo, good recruiting efforts are not recognized or rewarded beyond an unsteady paycheck. Accolo management purports the recruiting process to run itself and Hiring Consultant Recruiters need only manage the process. Half of the time it doesn't and management fully expects Hiring Consultants to direct source when candidates don't materialize just as they would for an assignment that pays 20% commission except here, Recruiters don't make but a very very tiny portion of that.

    Bottom line, working for Accolo is too much work for too little money. Accolo management treats Hiring Consultants as expendable and clients are regularly verbally abusive and rude plus there are no benefits or any other advantages to working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accolo management says they value their recruiters but their actions prove they don't. They are completely client-centric to the point of alienating the people who serve those clients. Now that the economy is improving, it will be interesting to see if Accolo management makes any effort to keep people.
