Pros

I've been working at Collins for about a year, and i must say that over that course of time there are a bunch of pros for working here. Firstly, the company's staff (both employees and management) are all friendly, relatable, and easy to work with. In addition, the management works with individual recruiters to cater to their strengths and teach them the ways of success in this industry. The management is also really good at allowing their employees to maintain their work life balance.
There are also other smaller perks which spice up the recruiting experience, like friendly team competitions from time to time. Last year there was a competition for an all expenses paid trip to New York, which was really fun.

Cons

Collins is located in Schaumburg, which can be cumbersome to commute to from some suburbs and Chicago. However, management is very reasonable about being delayed by traffic for all their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you are all on the same page. Recruiters shouldn't be getting in trouble because of disagreements in different processes that different managers would rather do and others wouldn't.

    Pros

    Good location, nice ( non-management) staff.

    Cons

    Management is very territorial. Often talks down to the recruiters. Extremely numbers driven to the point of not caring about anything else. Have found that salary is very compared to other recruiting firms in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more and have a little faith that they might actually know what they are doing.
