    Postive experience, great work environment, great starter company

    Junior Recruiter (Current Employee)
    Westborough, MA

    ProsSome pros of this company are the following:
    Great work environment
    Great company to start learning about staffing and HR
    Always people around to help you

    ConsNot really a Con, but if youre looking for a large company this is not the place for you, it is fairly small, yet has a number of large scale clients

    Joke, only work if you are desperate

    Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsUnfortunately, none. I'm really the type of person that tries to find the good even in the worst scenario but there are none.

    ConsSalary- If you are a Recruiter with 1+ year of experience, they will pay you $38k which is a joke. Good luck if you have no experience. They like to hire contractors in (which is fine) but they are completely unethical when it comes to letting someone go. They don't care. They will hire you and tell you it's indefinite and on the day they want to get rid of you, they go up to you and tell you not to come back.

    Culture- This is one of the places who has people from Director-level to PM's who are inexperienced and worked their way up to that by kissing the right person's behind. That creates the hierarchy of "I'm better than you"- It's really pathetic when management should be the one who promotes a healthy, positive culture to empower everyone to succeed. Not this case.

    Management- they are by far some of the most unprofessional managers I have ever come across. Not saying names but the person in charge of the recruitment has been seen trash talking about the employees of the company.

    And there you have it- my utmost honest review. Work here only if you are desperate and have nothing else while looking for more respectable, professional work environments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor Management

    Associate Project Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsMost coworkers are very friendly.

    Cons-Management is underqualified. They do not instill confidence in their employees and it leads to a lack of office morale.
    -Office setting is unprofessional.
    -Inappropriate relationships
    -Incosistent bonuses, which are so small that they are unmotivating
    -Management often gives different employees, different messages, which leads employees to not trust them
    -No real training is provided
    -They act more as bosses, than leaders
    -They hang on to underperforming employees, because of personal relationships

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart being honest with employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best Friends Club

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsRelaxed environment, beers on Fridays, ability to work from home, Gym and cafeteria in the office, friendly staff.

    ConsUnprofessional, Inappropriate management relationships, Nepotism, Men get paid more than women, is more like a college business experiment than a fully functioning company. The upper management is incredibly under qualified in many aspects and does not seem to understand the jobs that they are managing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more organized, focus more on training and hiring qualified individuals instead of those who simply fit the "culture"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Spammy work environment, favoritism at it's best

    Recruiter (Former Employee)

    ProsMentioned from others.. willing to give anyone a chance whether you have a degree or not. If you're truly desperate, you should come in here just to get "professional experience" under your belt.
    Some-what flexible scheduling
    Young workers

    ConsWhere should I start?
    Young workers could be a plus but also has a backfire.. people are nepotistic and favoritism is a must in order to advance. You have to act like you're truly grateful to be working there. Cliques are inevitable, felt like High School all over again instead of a "professional working environment".
    Pay is LOW, for the amount of work, hours, and unattainable goals you are given.
    Business model is quite spammy, upper management acts nice but really doesn't care about their employees or helping them succeed-- unless you suck up and remain a "favorite".
    Co-workers, some were nice, some were catty, depending on the day and mood

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I work at JCSI

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work to get your feet wet in the business world.
    Willing to give anyone that fits the culture a chance.
    Casual environment and somewhat flexible schedule.
    Friendly CEO.
    Great spread of experience levels in all roles.

    ConsLow pay with unclear bonus potential, not much room for growth.
    Tricky to navigate environment, cliques form very quickly, some favoritism from management,.
    High and ever changing goals, sometimes they should be adjusted per situation.
    Erratic and inconsistent training.
    Lack of confidence and feeling of restlessness from employees in regards to the stability of the company when billable hours drop

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with all employees to avoid the awkward gap between those in the know and those outside the know. Make training more consistent and longer term career advancement opportunities more obtainable.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great people who recognize talent and reward success.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Westborough, MA

    ProsFlexibile schedule, casual office environment, fun-loving group of professionals who love to compete both at work and play. Company fosters collaboration and support for career advancement, as well as constant effort to improve delivery to clients and help staff achieve individual and collective goals. This company likes to work and play hard, and have fun!

    ConsCommute on Route 495 can be tough. Like weather in New England, office changes occur regularly--sometimes with little advance notice for those involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate better and more often.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
