    I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people, good rates, good benefits, strong reputation
    Very responsive people, return phone calls and messages promptly
    Friendly atmosphere and occasional social gatherings
    While I only worked with Genesis10 a short time, I had the feeling they cared about me as a person, valued me as employee. Yes, I definitely recommend Genesis10 and would work for them again in heartbeat!

    Cons

    Most contracts are short term, i.e., 6 months
    Risks that come with a short term contracts
    Clients may change direction and priorities and end contract early

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work with great clients. Keep working with them to offer longer terms contracts. I have seen good efforts in this area. Keep it up!

    I have been working at Genesis10 full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - I've made a career at Genesis10. I have taken advantage of the plentiful opportunities to move up through the ranks.
    - Genesis10 typically hires from within
    - I have always been treated as a person and not just as a number. When I've had sick family members, I've been given incredible flexibility to take care of them. When I was called up by the military (reserves), the owner and CFO both gave their home numbers to my wife in case she needed anything.
    - There is no cap on the amount of money I can make. I've made an incredible income for my family over the years because of the opportunities afforded to me and the commissions and bonus structure in place.

    Cons

    - At times, it can take longer than I would like to get responses needed on somewhat urgent issues.
    - I have less vacation days than what I would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow your employees from within by giving them the opportunities to grow and advance. Continue to treat your employees like people.

    Great staffing agency that takes care of their talent for the long-term

    I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible support and communication from the Genesis10 team while working onsite with clients. Truly caring of the welfare of their talent, strategically planning for next placement as contracts get close to expiring. Excellent pay for high-level professional positions. Great benefits including options for medical, dental, vision, and 401K.

    Cons

    The only cons are the inherent instability of staffing, as the agency cannot control the hiring client's decisions to renew or continue contracts. No paid vacation time, as positions are hourly. Would love to have them expand their client base in my city, for more opportunities to work with Genesis10.

    I worked at Genesis10 as a contractor

    Pros

    They respond will to those they see a candidates for their position and the on boarding process is quick.

    Cons

    The work they offer to candidates are only short-term work lasting only a few months. I was told they only work with long term contacts and I found myself out of work twice within a few months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work better with communication with possible candidates on the length of contracts. most of out there are looking some permanence with longer contracts and not just 3 three months or shorter.

    I worked at Genesis10 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some smaller offices with a good opportunity to learn, and employees are able to use their talents toward their roles. For the most part, efforts are appreciated and rewarded. Very flexible working culture and knowledgeable staff. Great programs to get in with reputable clients for new graduates or those who are looking for experience to move their careers.

    Cons

    Pay could be better and staff are underutilized at times. Give employees more growth opportunities so they don't leave.

    Pros

    Outstanding recruiters! Took time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Definitely a unique experience from most other staffing firms in MN.

    Cons

    Would love to see even more companies - would work with them every time if I could.
    They do hourly consulting only for PMs so if you're new to consulting, this might be too much risk to take on initially.
