Pros

It is a privately held company, so employees are not pressured to make decisions that impact the company or business that are beneficial in the short-term, but could cause damage (or missed opportunities) in the long-term. The people that work there and the culture is great - you truly do feel as though you are part of a team, and senior management knows your name and who you are.

Cons

Compensation is a drawback - but the staffing industry is notorious for low pay. It is also a smaller company, so they do not have a lot of the technological resources that you would find at bigger firms. You will not be interacting with the latest software, so you have to work to keep your computing skills up-to-date outside of the job.

Advice to Management

Have a an organized way to solicit ideas from the staffing people in the branch - they interact with the business day in and day out. They observe trends and issues first, and oftentime come up with great ideas to solve issues or implement processes to be proactive in avoiding things that can negatively impact the business. Having an organized way for people to submit ideas and see that others' ideas have been implemented - with success - will go a long way in improving morale and soliciting great ideas that will drive the business.

    Pros

    Small company so you really get to meet everyone in the company especially at holiday/picnic/summer get togethers. Very rewarding when you are able to find a quality candidate a position that they are grateful for. Great company to work for!

    Cons

    -More about the clients than the employees
    -Dealing with unreliable candidates
    -Communication between corporate and the branches

    Advice to Management

    Realize that some clients aren't worth holding on to when your reputation is a risk and have better communication between all branches
