    Pros

    Very professional and hard-working environment with opportunities to learn and grow early in your career. The entire leadership team is great and they are extremely approachable and open to feedback. Open and constructive communication is valued. Everyone is focused on what's best for our clients, and I think people take pride in what we deliver.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is too much focus on the bottom-line and not enough focus on company culture/people development, but management recognizes this and is taking steps to improve it.

    Pros

    The ability to make a lot of money if you can navigate through the politics and unfair treatment.
    The pros that are communicated in the interview phase are not honest.

    Cons

    - The interview phase is very long and will take 4-5 visits.
    - The work environment is not laid-back or casual as suggested in many of their postings. It is very micro-managed and metric driven
    - Upper management is two-faced and will say one thing and the other until it's too late.
    - Normal working hours are 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday.
    - Base salary is very low
    -Turn over rate in the past 6 months has been higher than hire rate
    - Management by fear is the key strategy to encourage employees
    - The initial 6 months as a recruiter will consist of working internal openings. These are the most difficult to fill and least pay due to all above comments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the doors and start being honest with your clients.
