    I have been working at Kforce full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Earning potential is high, compensation plan is fair, and they have a number of resources available to support the sales and recruiting efforts; much more so than in competitive companies

    Cons

    I any publicly traded companies there will be things that you can't do; harder to do lower profit deals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look at total gross profit and not always percentage

    I have been working at Kforce full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great resources for the new recruiter who needs beginner-school training

    Cons

    VERY LIMITED upward mobility. Senior people are fixtures that clog the promotional-drain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move on in your careers and make room for fresh talent that actually know modern recruiting methods. Treat people as people and not numbers.

    I have been working at Kforce as a contractor

    Pros

    Placed me within a week.
    Have full benefits includes a 401k.
    Everyone is really nice and willing to work with you.
    After getting set up everything was smooth sailing.

    Cons

    I walked onto the job site not knowing even the basics. All I knew was where I was working and my pay. Everything felt rushed. When asking about pay check, benefits and 401k no one could really help me. And corporate help desk wasn't very helpful either. Told me to just visit the website, which doesn't tell much of anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please explain the whole process before letting a person wallk onto the job site. This include benefits and any background task that must be completed.

    Good company but 33% of bill rate !?!

    I have been working at Kforce

    Pros

    Decent company. None of the usual dirty tricks found with other body shop companies.

    Cons

    They are a bit greedy taking a full 33% of the bill rate. In all my years contracting I have not given up more than 20%. Now the end customer is complaining that I am too expensive. I am actually earn less than the rest of the crew, plus I get no benefits.

    Kforce's buy-in benefits plan is way expensive.

    I have been working at Kforce

    Pros

    Tons of room for advancement, sales culture with great incentives, visibility to senior leadership even within a $1B+ company

    Cons

    I really haven't encountered many cons. The expectation is you work hard/ play hard and not everyone is willing to put in the effort, which can drive some turnover.

    I worked at Kforce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you work 10+ hours a day right off the bat you'll see possible commissions the following year. You work with multiple clients if your manager allows and make a lot of good relationships at other companies.

    Cons

    Recognition is given only in words and great people leave because there's no incentive to stay. Turn over is constant and the only way you can get a raise is to threaten to leave. There is no transparency around commissions and it changes each year (on purpose) which makes it difficult to understand. Management is constantly over promising and under delivering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please begin to invest in retaining your employees

    I worked at Kforce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good training, decent internal ATS/CRM, Glen Cathey has influenced the development of KForce Sourcers a lot

    Cons

    My manager was homophobic and blatantly discriminatory. He was uncomfortable with the fact that I was gay and I was let go even though I was a strong performer. They paid me to keep quiet, but unfortunately it was completely legal in Cincinnati at that time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training for diversity and inclusion for your branch managers/market directors.
