Pros

They seem to have a larger volume of jobs than other agencies in NYC - especially considering the general slowdown in work because of the economy. The jobs range from short term (a couple of days) to long term (3+ months).

Cons

Constantly rotating recruiters. Rates for temp paralegals ranging from $18 - $22/hr - very low. They have intensive policies and procedures - you have to attend an orientation at their offices before starting a job, but the client will tell you everything you need to know, so it's really unnecessary.

Advice to Management

Pay recruiters more so they stay longer and develop deeper relationships with candidates.

    Pros

    Easy, people was crappy degrees from crappy schools, easy to get a job, easy screening process.

    Cons

    Upper management is poor and under-qualified. Crappy benefits, no opportunity for personal or professional growth. Raises are nominal with no real increase in salary. High turnover rate.
