    Pros

    I've been working for firstPRO for quite some time now and I am very proud of our growth and the limited turn over our teams have experienced in the past 3 years. I am proud of the relationships we have build with job seekers and companies all over the Philadelphia region. firstPRO offers all the tools you need to be be successful in recruiting and they achieve their success in a very ethical way. Working here as afforded a great career path for those who work hard and exceed expectations.

    Cons

    My experience has been so extremely positive working at firstPRO that it's difficult to pin point a "con" We are a company that recruits to support management and human resource staff directly and tend to avoid business that is managed using a VMS not allowing those relationships to be developed. If you look to run a VMS business, our model would not be the best place for you at this present time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen and offer your support and expertise. Thank you for creating a culture that has allowed me to be successful. Thank you for all the guidance and mentorship in the recruiting industry.

    None. This place is unethical and dishonest in dealings with staff and clients.

    Pros

    Overall, the people who work here are very nice. It's not a sweat shop compared some other recruiting firms.

    Cons

    The culture is very stuffy and old fashion. You must dress in a tie everyday - whether you meet with clients or not and they do not understand the concept of telecommuting or remote work. Leadership in the IT division is non-existent. Director has no clue how to run, lead, or motivate an office, has no understanding of the industry, and will question everything you say and do to make themselves feel relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect the company to grow if the complacency among employees are acceptable.

    Pros

    The may go out of business soon

    Where can one begin... Hostile work place, cheating customers and clients at every turn, lying to candidates and on and on and on. All the owners care about is themselves and their money

    Hire young and hungry.
