    I worked at Gambit Technologies part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gambit is probably the one agency that actually does staffing the right way. They have an intricate process in which they vet candidates. They work with the biggest and best clients in the industry. Their clients and candidates love them. All of the people that work there are technical so they actually know how to screen technical candidates. I loved in there.

    Cons

    They need to hire more people. They have lots of jobs to work on, but need to hire more people.

    I worked at Gambit Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gambit is a great place to intern if you want to get into recruiting or HR. They will teach you the basics, secrets and tricks of recruiting. You will walk away from the internship with skills that other companies do not normally take the time to teach and they are skills that companies look for. The work environment, culture and people are great. They are pretty laid back but really know their stuff.

    Cons

    The internship program was fairly new and not as developed, but they are always open to suggestions and are continuing to improve the program each semester.

    I have been working at Gambit Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I interned at Gambit Technologies during the summer and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Senior management was excellent in teaching about the field of recruiting. The Gambit employees each work together to create a functional team-oriented environment that made the company a pleasure to work for. During my time at Gambit, I learned an exorbitant amount about the industry and came away with excellent career experience and growth

    Cons

    There were not many downsides to working for Gambit Technologies.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career. They teach you not only the fundamentals of recruiting but how to be successful in a career. It is a small team where everyone works together for the overall success of the business and personal goals. Even if your interest lies within the HR Generalist space, it is a great place to build a foundation.

    Cons

    When I started, there weren't standardized processes and procedures in place. Since then, there has been restructuring, and now a process for everything to help with the flow of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is tough, but I think that there could be more structure around mid and annual reviews for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gambit Technologies is a unique opportunity for anybody that wants to build a career in recruiting and/or Human Resources. When I joined Gambit, I was a recent college graduate with no experience in HR, recruiting or technology but Kevin and Mike truly mentored me and gave me a solid foundation to build my career as an HR professional.

    I highly recommend this company to anybody looking to work hard and build their career.

    I worked at Gambit Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment and got along with my fellow employees. They have a solid client base as they deal with some of the top companies in the area. I learned the tech side of recruiting which really propelled my career forward. Another major factor ...I was never micromanaged which allowed me to grow and mature which for me was something that is hard to find at most recruiting companies.

    Cons

    ....with that said at times I wish I would have been pushed harder, but no complaints

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend highly especially if you want to get into tech recruiting and a friendly work environment

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

    Pros

    1) The other recruiters I worked with were the biggest pro.
    However, this is probably not a logical Pro anymore as most of us left Gambit by now.

    2) If you want to (eventually) make a good amount of $$ and learn the ropes from talented recruiters, I can't deny this might be the place.

    Cons

    - Commission may not be paid on time
    - "Factory" shop that hires new grads and pays low salary
    - Favoritism
    - Management is a joke
    - Questionable tactics (ethically) to get candidates through process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay commission on time. Organization needed.
