Pros

The team has a family-like environment and generally look out for one another, though it definitely is a competitive industry and you must be driven in order to succeed. Management is friendly and willing to help you succeed if you're willing to put in the effort. The pay is good and the commission structure is more than fair. TFG has grown tremendously and more than doubled their revenue in the last few years.

Cons

A lot of cons from a couple years back have been rectified, and they are constantly looking at ways to better serve their clients and be a place their employees want to come to work. Sometimes you'll find yourself working positions that aren't as fresh or viable as you'd like, but that's the recruiting industry for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing, the changes are great and leading to a strong boost in morale.

    Pros

    They pay you on time

    Cons

    They are very unprofessional people which includes unresponsiveness their employees whether its answers the phone calls or answers your emails.
    They promise you a lot before joining them but only few will be kept
    They are the worst Employer when it comes to H1B workers. As soon as your assignment is done, they would put you on Bench ( even though they promise you to pay on bench before joining) and might cancel your H1 visa too

    Pros

    The underpaid and underappreciated staff are the biggest pros. Everyone has a mutual lack of confidence / respect for upper management so it makes for good after work conversation.
    Having only one physical office located in Tampa, FL is convenient as all the account managers and executive staff (for the entire company) sit right next to each other.

    Cons

    The executive staff consistently belittles their employees. Their is rampant name calling and public humiliation on a daily basis. They have a hire fast, fire fast mentality which creates the revolving door effect. Their are no set standard for performance leaving most recruiters in the dark in regards to job stability. Their is 1 person in charge of all new business develpment only becuase he does not want someone on the team to misconstrue his lies or get one of his stories mixed up. The recruiting floor is separated by how much money is potentially made of each deal rather than by skill sets making recruiter growth next to impossible. The Fountain Group works nationally and never meets candidates because they only have one office and it is located in Tampa, FL. They are extremely Micro Managed, to the extent that you need to tell the directors assistant when you are going to the bathroom. Overall, This company portrays a top down dog eat dog environment which creates a hostile work environment wth constant turnover. They have given too much power to one man and are eventually going to have to deal with the consequences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for the people you employ, Think long term over short, Use common sense, Listen to your staff, Use positive reinforcement over negative, Remove the Dictator !!!
