Pros

Okay in replying to your request while employeed/on assignment with them.

Cons

Not great in communicating when your assignment ended. Got the call that assignment ended on a Sunday night at 10:30 PM, the night before heading back to the office Monday morning. Given a great review over a phone message - but hard to get the recruiting manager on the phone in the weeks after to work on another assignment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication from Recruiters.

    A place for people who didn't do well in school but don't mind working like a dog.

    Pros

    Young coworkers. Experience that other companies will value when you want to leave and start interviewing elsewhere.

    Cons

    Long-hours. 7:30 am - 6 pm is expected. If there is a project, you can expect to stay past 9 pm. Managers and directors always upset with recruiters for not hitting goals due to outside factors that recruiters have no control over. Work like a dog, barely get paid. The amount of work you put in does not translate to dollars in your pocket. The commission structure does not pay out what they market. I've seen managers develop a territory only to have it taken away and handed to someone who was recently promoted. That manager and their family suddenly has to figure out how to live on much less since they lost the commission on that territory and are knocked back down to base. Managers routinely brag about drunken nights and doing poorly in school. Company does not value intelligence. Most valuable employees are ones who can be run over day after day and still come to work with a smile on their face. They've implemented a Diversity Initiative Committee which is routinely joked about at work. It's a good old boys club environment and if you're not a white male that didn't do well in school, you won't fit in. They'll accept women...if they act like white males.

    Pros

    Nice view of the bay

    Cons

    Very numbers driven. They'll call you out in front of the entire office. They tout a 'feedback rich environment' which is just their name for heavy criticism.

    It is a very old school company - doesn't promote new ideas, creative thinking, etc. You do things by the book, you work long hours and bring in money and they'll probably promote you. Anything less than that, and they'll make your experience miserable until you leave or you're fired.

    Many of the higher level managers have never worked at another company and really feel like they're 'big dogs'. Because of this, they can be arrogant, disrespectful and chauvinistic. Generally unprofessional.
