    I worked at Special Counsel

    Pros

    The recruiters at Special Counsel are the most responsive, respectful, and professional I have worked with in the Washington, DC area. Client needs and wants are clearly defined, work sites are well managed, and their screening process keeps the weirdos out.

    Cons

    Assignments have been short as of late, but that reflects the industry more than Special Counsel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage the fact that your staff is not asleep at the wheel.
