I have been working at Patrice & Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very good training and support from the leadership. Flexibility and freedom to run your business within the guidelines. We hit our financial goals in our very first year. If you follow the training and use the systems you can succeed. You can add clients on your own that can increase your earnings and the value of your franchise.

Cons

You must have a consistent focused effort to succeed. One must understand themselves and if you truly will adjust to working at home and the discipline it takes... to make the consistent effort you need to succeed. Mental toughness is needed, as with ANY business, there are ups and downs. T

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The national clients are solid and you can add value and earnings by adding your own clients. If you want to grow a bigger business, you need to add recruiters and perhaps a bit of administrative or research assistance. It takes about 60-90 days to understand the systems and what it takes to recruit. Working from home is not for everyone! There are no short cuts to success....work the system.

    Pros

    Working with the founder, a very sharp businessperson in this industry

    Cons

    No support. The team of executive other then the founder are a bunch of incompetents. Very hard to make a living. You are competing against every one of the P and A franchisees as well as the company itself. To better understand the lack of support, question why the founders recruiters make mor hires then franchisees....They get more support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help the Franchissees get hires instead of focusing on your home office recruiters success. Also, Patrice should be the only one communicating with the franchisees because her Management team is so incompetent

    Pros

    No pros - you work hard for very little return - treated terribly and blamed for the lack of hires. Contact all franchisees and ask them how much they are making - they wont tell you. That is the first indication right there.

    Cons

    I've been treated poorly - not pleased with the tone or the lack of respect. Ask the franchisees when you make your calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect.
