Current Employee - Recruiter in Troy, MI
Current Employee - Recruiter in Troy, MI

I have been working at Talascend

Pros

Flexible work schedule-allowed to work from home when children are sick, good hours to still get home to have family time

Salary, commission and bonus-if you're a good recruiter you'll be rewarded here. They also have started a President, Chairman's and CEO's Club where you can qualify fo pretty exotic trips. Examples are the Banyan Tree Resort in Riviera Maya, San Fransisco and Napa California.

Top Management-has taken back the reins for company. They listen and really care about all employees. The Presdident is very in touch with whats going on and you'll hear from him-for better or worse!

Employees-those of use who've made it through the economic downturn really feel close. These people are experts and have many many years of staffing expience behind them.

Cons

Career Growth-very limited for recruiters if you're not interested in sales

Communication between sales and recruiters is always tricky

Intake Meetings-lack of thorough intake meetings from sales leads to disgruntled recruiters and hiring managers.

Technology-They use Bullhorn which has some serious limitations

Training-no chance for further education of training, can do the same job for years and years

Prior Management-very poor, disorganized and lacked ability to implement their grand strategy. I think this has been corrected

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Now that we've come out of the downturn in economy, put together a plan to grow your people. Very few opportunities to train, learn new things-job can get stale year after year. Keep bringing in the large projects, great chance to develop your recruiters but think about what comes after that for them in their career.

    I have been working at Talascend as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do get the payroll out on time, found one employee in general in payroll that goes to the extreme to help you out when you have questions/issues.

    Cons

    They court you very well until you sign the papers, then you never hear from them again. Local rep is non existent, as long as they are collecting their commission they don't care how the job is going. Where I am placed there are same type jobs staffed by other companies that give a much better benefit package. If you have any problems that you require Talascend mgm't input you always get referred back to the area rep, even though you do not get timely answers from them. Better staffing companies out there, check out your options before signing up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the company benefit plan to better suit the type/level of employees you are trying to recruit. When you have employees away from the MI office make sure they are serviced by caring representatives and make the employee feel like they are appreciated for something more than a commission check.
