    Good place if you're a mid to sr level agency recruiter looking for stability

    Pros

    -Professional office
    -Higher than average (it seems) commission structure so there's definitely a sense that you can make a lot of money
    -Can work from home if you needed to
    -Autonomy- do what you need to do to get it done
    -Well-known among it's clients for delivering quality
    -Generally good people that mean well (some of the other groups gossip a lot sometimes)
    -Diverse workforce (recent college grads to great grandfathers, race, educational background)

    Cons

    -IT system is outdated, no social media or marketing strategy
    -Lack of cross-selling between divisions (working on this but the "principals" are hindering this)
    -No point on working on another team's order since the commission structure on that order is really bad (again they are working on this but not getting anywhere cause the "principals" are greedy)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frank's a good guy and genuinely works hard for himself and his employees. BUT he needs to replace the other "principals" who have been here for 10+ years who are NOT innovating or fostering employee growth. Getting an answer such as "because it's been done that way for a long time" is very infuriating. Keep working on cross-selling and making it easier for the divisions to work together

    Pros

    1. They work hard at getting you the assignment
    2. While in the process of hiring, they are great "communicators"
    3. Friendly staff

    Cons

    1. Once you get the assignment, they forget about you
    2. No communication with the home office
    3. Poor benefits
    4. No room for advancement
    5. Don't keep their promises
    6. Dismissive to your concerns/issues
    7. It's all about the client and not the consultant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to think about those you send out on assignments as they are the reason you have the contract in the first place.
