    I have been working at Fircroft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company has everything you could want. You can be open and candid with people and all ideas are accepted with an appreciation for the thought that they've inspired. This open atmosphere creates a trusting and beneficial culture inspiring true growth.

    Cons

    With a sharp contrast to previous jobs I've had, there are few cons with Fircroft. The cons that exist can be addressed with open-mindedness and candid thoughts and will not be cons for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your enthusiasm and hard work.
    Leave a stamp on everyone you speak with.
    Emphasize the mission and values of the company more, because there is a lot to be inspired by sharing this information.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at fircroft is the PTO they offer - and you will need it.

    Cons

    Terrible management, very hard to get pay increases, so go in high, processes are always changing, high turnover, benefits are not good if you have family, micro-management, and more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all management - they still haven't figured out how to do business in the US.

    I worked at Fircroft full-time

    Pros

    The customers and contractors.
    Type of recruiting (Oil & Gas)

    Cons

    Micro-manage
    Inflexible
    Uncomfortable working environment (chairs/furniture/back-to-back desks)
    Middle management is untrained
    No training
    Loud and distracting office environment, open environment (no cubicles, nothing)
    Extremely high turnover among recruiters
    Personal belongs (purses, gym bags, papers, folders, binders) can be found on the floor and in order to leave your desk you have to step over these items

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train middle management
    Provide a professional setting
    Provide ergonomic work space / work stations / cubicles

    Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant in Warrington, North West England, England (UK)

    I worked at Fircroft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong presence around the world.

    Cons

    Badly trained staff, terrible commission for employees. Awful internal communication. At best they could be described as a body shop. Known in the industry to be a place not to hire recruiters from, the staff are lazy and there for an easy life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate openly with staff and please reward and keep those who are talented, the business needs to grow, change and modernise, dead weight needs to be shown the door! Too many staff underperform and don't contribute. Too many layers of management.
