I worked at CCSI full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good location, okay office space.

Cons

Turnover is unbelievable, more than half the company has left in the last 6 months. Double that if you go back one year.
Seems like they can't afford to bring any good people in with experience (that are not coming off unemployment). Most people are hired after not working for 6 months and then they are promoted quickly to management.
Lack of Social Media tools, job boards are to find the unemployed, not the best people.
Low mark-up, low profit MSP model. Many low level jobs to fill, hard to make money doing it. Everyone fills Admin and Customer Service jobs, can't pay my bills with that.
No direct hiring manager contact, either deal with a recruiter or an onsite rep from a MSP.
A no-growth company in a high growth industry.
Poor management, been around a long time, still a very small company with no known growth or expansion strategy. This leads to no growth opportunities for recruiters and account managers, so they leave to find growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It has been said on this site before, treat your people with RESPECT. Respect their ideas and their work ethic. Promote from within. Pay for performance, recruiters place the people, account managers just send emails, why should they be paid more?
Lastly I would say sell, but who would buy a low profit, shrinking revenue company?

    Pros

    I guess it's a good stepping stone to get into the business... but that's about it. It's not a good place to work.

    Cons

    The management doesn't manage- they threaten, force employees to work late hours without overtime pay, and babysit. You have to fight for every penny you've earned in commission. They pay on a draw, but don't tell you that, they just hold back on commission until you've billed a certain amount every week, but that amount is more than paying for your desk. The owner is constantly making racial and derrogatory comments about people and is very disrespectful to his employees. There's no structured training, no room for growth and what you're doing there isn't even really recruiting. They are an approved vendor for clients who use vendor managed programs and they get jobs, they submit blindly and pray for feedback. They don't know that actual recruiting involves candidate screening, direct relationships with hiring managers, coaching candidates through the interview process, closing deals, or anything that is involved in the actual recruiting process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management.
