I worked at BalancePoint Corporation

Pros

-Cool office
-Strong self driven producers
-Competitive commission compensation
-Fun culture - parties, halloween parties, community service, family friendly
-Flexible hours

Cons

-Upper management is highly inexperienced - look to "mentors" on guidance to run their company have no remorse for mistakes that impact their team
-No loyalty to their employees - quick to fire with no explanation or warning, quick to criticize, retract pay raises and other bonus incentives on a whim
-Very little employee recognition for a very dedicated team.
-Lack of trust internally, when Trust and Transparency are #1 to external clients and candidates
-Decisions are made with very little follow through
-Lack of empathy from certain people in upper management
-Some believe it's a popularity contest at times
-Long history of broken promises and dangling pretty carrots to keep top talent
-If you are coming on into a new division - expect no direction, sink or swim.

    Recruiters and Human Resource employees are great to work with, BalancePoint offers good benefits for contractors including health, dental, vacation, paid holidays and 401K. Companies that BalancePoint works with have good cultures and opportunities to convert to full time employees.

    Integrity is high on the list of the Corporate values.

    Benefits for contractors are limited to the major ones listed above. There is not maternity/paternity, bereavement leave.

    I worked at BalancePoint Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work environment, a few good folks are hiding out in small burrows

    Cons

    Dishonest, untrustworthy, double meanings, strange expectations, social above value, artifical versus meaningful, lobbyist mentality, CYA abounds, fear of change, fear of speaking out, very high stress levels, arguements break out nearly every week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change has to start at the top, change = opportunity, lack of change due to fear is failure.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
