Pros

Good for out of school grads looking for a job

Cons

Not the smartest guys in the world running the show. You will quickly realize you are too smart for the firm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're making money so for them it's good. Rough for anyone else.

    Pros

    Compensation was better than expected. Team I worked with were very supportive. Those who possess the specific skills necessary (conversational skills with an inquisitive mind set) can do very well in this particular position. Great place for a recruiters. During the economic downturn, the business was extremely profitable so employees had job security.

    Cons

    Management is not understanding. They will berate you without hesitation. I've never seen people cry so often. Your work is always questioned. Work training is non-existent. Individualistic culture with the higher ups which creates miscommunication and work flow conflicts very often. Recruiters are excellent at recruiting but terrible at leadership. I wouldn't recommend working here if you are looking to build on your career. Management focused on profits and not capabilities which creates conflicts with deadlines and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to support and build from within. Take on less work and better manage client expectations. Look to build for the long term.
