    I have been working at GDH Consulting full-time (more than an 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 an 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.

    It was a good company to work for, due to their being prepared to handle the call-outs.

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

    Pros

    They were in touch with their employee's in the field. and they made sure that the worker's had their pay on time or made sure one could get it in a timely manner.

    Cons

    A lot of the time you may have to wait a week or so in order to get the paper work in order to go to the job.
    It was not always their fault most of the time it would be the company that put in the work order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank's for all the work you sent my way, and I look forward to working with you in the future.

    I worked at GDH Consulting as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. I you need a job fr low pay the recruiter will submit you for positions and after four years you might get a phone call. If that's a good thing.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Employees gossip in hushed tones in the reception area. They never call you back. No communication skills. Recruiters have less than a year on average in the industry and will be working someplace else the next time you call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience is the status quo for the last five years. I don't expect senior management to read this entry and actually do something. All the focus is on the bottom line. Not getting people into the right jobs. They collect commissions and if the employee doesn't work out and gets let go they don't care. As others said here they don't refund the finders fees.
