    Pros

    Professional environment. Flexibility with time in office. Need to be a professional and work your desk and produce. Great IT support, great name recognition, well respected in the industry.

    Cons

    Need to be a self starter and entrepeneur. No help from Managing Partner. He is a producing mgr and mainly concerned with his own desk. Supports producers. If you're new, you could sit at your desk for months and never get any feedback or help from the manager. He comes in late, take over 2 hrs for lunch, golf, etc. Stays late in early eve hours to work on HIS searches.
    If your not in the group who has been here for 10 plus yrs, it is almost imposibble to be part of the team. Old timers walk by you and don't even say hi. They know you are not part of the core group and will not be there long.
    Irvine office will always have this reputation as long as they have this Managing Partner who has been there 15 yrs.
    Management more concerned with phone time than billings. Behind the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change philosophy of recruiter stats. Time on phone, number of connects. How about placements, or sendouts to make the placements. Archaic management.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for and you can succeed if you work hard and collaborate with the other employees. It really helps with earning commissions more quickly. If you love to compete and recruiting this is the place to be

    Cons

    As with any recruiting firm, work/life balance can be challenging, but you have to make your manager aware of your personal issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If one thing, I would recommend expanding your offices.
