    Pros

    Huge company with a lot of resources. They are able to take on large staffing projects where smaller firms can't. Great brand recognition.

    Cons

    Very poor commission plan for recruiters. Only paid 3% of GP. Additionally the margins tend to be low (Under $10). They have a very hard time attracting and retaining high level talent so the turn over is very high. The message received in the local branches differs from the corporate office. Decisions are made from afar which results in negative business consequences at the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Create stability. Increase your compensation so you do not need to fight the constant turnover battle.


  2. Good starter job that leads to other opportunities if you work hard.

    Pros

    The pay was great, benefits were decent, and the job they had me at was pretty awesome.

    Cons

    The positions they put you in at particular companies don't always have a path toward permanent employment in that particular department. However, it does put you in the game and give you references within the company, so there's always room for growth, and it gives you a distinct advantage when it comes to applying elsewhere within that company.
