    I worked at GDH Consulting

    Pros

    They were constantly in contact with job site progress and remained vigilant yet were not annoying with their client's concerns. I appreciated their candor and willingness to succeed!

    Cons

    No challenges that couldn't be handled in person or over the phone with their clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend continuing contact with contract employees to gain more job opportunities in their area and level of expertise.

    Pros

    High end pay range. No overhead with management. Excellent experience. Community outreach. 10 paid holidays and I'm hourly employee.

    Cons

    At this time, I can not think of any that affects me or my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees who over achieve.

    I worked at GDH Consulting

    Pros

    If you like drinking on the job then this is it for you.

    Cons

    Requirements are different from corporate to individual branches. Unstable job environment. If you aren't an alcoholic then you won't be accepted. You can do your job well but still not get paid because of both the clients and candidates. Horrible work life balance....the CEO himself said that "if you don't eat, live, and breath recruiting 24/7 then you won't be successful". It's an IT company that doesn't train you in the IT aspects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management.

    I have been working at GDH Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This was my first job after college and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to join the GDH family. Management is great and sincerely cares about my success. We have regular group events outside of work that are really fun (and optional) and I really enjoy the office atmosphere in general.

    Cons

    You really get out of this position what you put into it, so if you only work 8-5 everyday you may not be as successful. Staying late every now and then really pays off.

    I worked at GDH Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary and good commission plan. Some aspects of their business model are very good others really suck.

    Cons

    Be careful on permanent placement hires. If for some reason your client has a major problem with the hire, GDH will not give a penny back to client. Of course, this is after the 90 refundable policy. You could lose your client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more sensitivity and respect for clients. Some of your policies have a negative effect on revenue and overall growth.

    I worked at GDH Consulting as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Time sheets and expense reports were always processed and paid as stated in the agreements. Flexible work schedule, the contractor works with the client to determine a mutually acceptable schedule.

    Cons

    1. The benefit terms seem to be designed for the contractor not to use them. The number of working required before eligibility and the employee benefit costs to employee earnings ratio for benefits is unacceptable.
    2. No opportunities for advancement or growth within the company
    3. Contract employees are asked to cover some operating cost as GDH pretends that the contract employee has a "FULL TIME" work location. Therefor the trip from home to the client or work location is considered a normal commute not reimbursable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on the contractors working for your clients.

    I have been working at GDH Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture is great! Leadership is supportive and genuinely wants you to succeed. They have ongoing training as the recruitment field is constantly changing. The compensation package for recruiting/sales is also very competitive with no cap. There's also numerous casual weeks (flip flops and t-shirts) throughout the year.

    Cons

    Some may be weary of the amount of work that goes into being successful. They are demanding so overtime is a must (in the sales and recruiting roles).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for a more structured mentoring program so producers can work on leadership skills before being promoted to management roles.
