Advice to ManagementAdvice

Job security is important for team morale, not just personal job security, but office job security
Anticipate busy times and make sure your ready for them; hire more people if need be, and if you need to spend the time to find the right people DO it - letting someone go after recently hiring them looks really really really really bad to all involved

    I have been working at MindField Group as a contractor

    Pros

    Great Office Location
    Front line team is amazing
    Pet friendly atmosphere
    flexible schedule
    weekly update meetings
    young culture
    Great place to learn more about recruiting

    Cons

    -Office building - falling bricks and mice (YUCK!)
    -very poor compensation set up - not standard across all recruiters
    -benefits - not everyone gets them, and you STILL need to pay MSP
    -Lack of longevity with the company - upper management does not care to keep recruiters happy so they will stay with the company - Leads to VERY high turnover
    -Recognition only goes to the Team Leads - not the actual recruiters - when it does, it is very limited lacks real gratitude
    - New management is requiring the TL's to micromanage (we're not 12... we know what we're doing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees - it doesn't have to be a party every weekend, pay us better and reward us for our accomplishments
    Without us, the company would not be as strong as it is
    STOP micromanaging us!
