    The company cares about culture but to the point where it is top heavy and the company capsizes.

    I worked at Populus Group full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture but steady is not their strong suit. Year over year revenue fluctuates too much. They take on clients, but lose their biggest ones.

    Cons

    Micro-management is the name of the game. They are over-protective and they say their leadership cares, but the president or vice-president never reaches out.

    One level up bosses feel the need to delegate all their responsibilities to you and then they don't even go after new accounts. They only promote once they know they are at risk of losing talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create or join a more modern recruiting model instead of copying Tek-Systems.

    Great Stepping Stone- Take what you need and leave for a better company

    I worked at Populus Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great entry level experience in technical recruiting
    Full time job with benefits

    Cons

    Lack of personal growth- a new fancy title does not mean "growth"
    High attrition rate (don't count on the team you were hired into being around long...)
    Poor pay rate (your base pay does not change regardless of added responsibility)
    Poor contracts- its hard to be successful with the contracts they have in place. (MSFT A-)
    In one ear out the other- Management will "listen" to employee advice, but do nothing
    If you are a contractor, do not count of being redeployed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure your pay scale for recruiters to make them comfortable or they will continue to leave one by one. Act professionally, throwing a fit when an internal employee leaves is childish and immature.
