I worked at Patrice & Associates full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There is nothing positive about this Business model

Cons

Poor Business Model Poor training Bad management Treats franchisees like slaves no respect for each other Too expensive for the model No solid A clients No solid jobs, client do not want to hire from Patrice Patrice's staff is too thin to support new people Mentor program charges another 24% commission from each hire No real guidance and support provider beyond the first week Bottom line, you will not make any money in this business

Advice to Management

STOP RIPPING PEOPLE OFF

I'm sorry you were not able to make my model work for you. Some of your thoughts are too outlandish for me to even address. All I can say is that you had every opportunity to validate our system ... More

    I have been working at Patrice & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love working from home. Love determining my destiny and making MY business successful rather than someone else's. Love how it is scalable - I now have my own accounts and recruiters working for me and I am able to expand my business as big as I can dream. The franchise community is like a family - we work together and support one another. We also get incredible support from Patrice and the home office. You reap what you sow. If you work the business, there's no reason for lack of success, but don't expect to be successful if you're not willing to put in the work. It's like anything else in life....you need to work at it.

    Cons

    Really nothing, All the systems are in place - all you have to work is work the system and you make money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep brining on more franchisees. We need more people to grow our business and our presence in the marketplace. "The rising tide raises all ships!"

    Thank you so much! I agree 100% with your thought "you reap what you sow". Owning a business is not like having a job where you show up and get paid. Business ownership is hard work where you don't ... More

    I have been working at Patrice & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The support is huge. I was struggling and Patrice hired a personal Executive Coach for me. I have never seen anyone be supportive and always be there for me in my life.

    Cons

    My biggest struggle is time management working from home. It is hard for me to stay focused sometimes. I think that is why others struggle because they don't treat it as if it were a job. It's too easy to "not work".

    Advice to Management

    Many changes have been made to the system since I joined 2 years ago. I have no advice because Patrice seems to always have her finger on the pulse and makes any changes needed.
