    Pros

    Co-workers are great to work with. Great position to gain experience, especially for looking into building project management experience and internal interface/customer service experience.

    Cons

    Daily calls and duties can become tedious- you make an average of 60-100 calls or more a day; however, that can be good experience in itself. Profiles can be hard to fill.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate

    Pros

    Ability to work virtually is a big advantage

    Cons

    Everyone is overloaded with OT not an option. Not enough resources to support req loads.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to "speak truth to power" and speak/interact with the client as the experts you were hired to be.

    Pros

    Management happy to let you run with things with little intrusion. Management flexible with working hours (ad-hoc working from home). Supportive management regarding escalations. The company enables you to fully explore your role with little hindrance or roadblocks.

    Cons

    No framework in place for Training and professional development. Bonuses are not related to personal or team performance. No real structure or pathway for promotion. Lack of accountability/motivation amongst staff.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and implement a sound personal performance framework plan that serves as a criteria for bonus and/or promotion. Promote from within the company. Bridge the gap between senior management and the ground up.

    Be up front to what the work load will be and honest about whether your employees will receive benefits and vacation time.

    I worked at KellyOCG as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    My amazing Manager was let go for no reason.

    Cons

    Mans world. Leadership with no prior experience.
    Kelly OCG - leadership that consists of mostly males - recommend each other.
    Bad management. Poor training. I left for good reason. No motivation at all.

    Advice to Management

    STOP!
    LISTEN!
    CONSIDER and learn management skills with proper communication.
    Promote those that have the experience. I was reporting to someone that had no management skills whatsoever. He became very personal and this becomes a very uncomfortable situation.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home; coworkers are great (shared suffering).

    Cons

    The workload is the real problem. if management had not sold the cheapest RPO to the client, adequate staff could be hired. People burnout quickly when they have to work 60 or more hours a week, including weekends.

    Had the workload been more realistic, then the horrible pay would not have been such an issue.

    Advice to Management

    learn to price RPOs so that adequate staff can be hired in order to spread the workload evenly.

    Pros

    Benefits were decent for what they were

    Cons

    No potential for upward movement and onsite management was not what it should have been. Yes the company hiring OCG needs to be represented but so to does the staff working for OCG and this was not the case at all. In fact the onsite management was highly unprofessional and never gave a straight answer.

    Advice to Management

    Insure that there is a fair balance between Client company and your staff. Be more hands on when dealing with your onsite management staff and demonstrate a desire to hear from all of your staff.

    Pros

    remote/ virtual opportunities. on-site client is GE Healthcare and the client is great to work with. high recruiter turnover rate, which opens doors to advancement, but if you are a high performer-- forget about advancement opps. They like to keep high performers in the same role because they are hard to replace.

    Cons

    I've work here for 3 years and went through 4 managers. Finally left this place a month ago. Micro managers. Inexperienced leadership team with no leadership and employee development experience. limited opportunities for advancement for people who perform. Bonuses are base on total team efforts, meaning the best performers receive the same raise and bonuses as the poor performers. Salaries are almost 20% less than market rates of professionals at other organizations. Immature managers who, instead of finding solutions to internal organizational issues, sets up employees they don't like to get laid off by playing office politics. Req load is high ( 45 to 1 ) ratio compared to other organizations. Lacks diversity. If you are searching for a place to work for the long term, search elsewhere. Management team are quick to throw recruiters under the bus at all costs just to keep the GE client account.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees well enough so they perform at their best, treat them well enough so they don't want to leave. Evaluate current leadership team and replace them with competent leaders. There is a reason why 95% ( 37 recruiters) of the best Sr. Recruiters left this account in the last year. Management team are quick to throw employees under the bus for client issues.

    Pros

    Location, Teamwork, Leadership, Global, Perks, Pay, everything!

    Cons

    Hard to find this position in my area.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees always move up in the company, and help them find positions if/when their contracts expire. The team and coworkers I have are dedicated Kelly workers and want to keep it that way! ;)
