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

    Pros

    The recruiters and managers for the most part acted in a very professional manner Benefits were provided as promised The back office support and their internal systems for accessing the benefits (medical insurance etc) were good, and people were helpful too. Handling of my resignation process was good as well. They had a good relationship with the client. So when I moved to their client's payroll from their payroll (I had a CTH job), the transition was very smooth.

    Cons

    Push very hard into taking a position which I was not interested Tried to find out the very lowest rate that I will settle for, and offered me exactly that rate There were inaccuracies in some of the things that they told/promised me about the job. I am going to give them the benefit of doubt, and assume that these were genuine communication gaps.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kforce (More than a year)

    Pros

    good compensation package Chicago Office has a great Operations Team that make the little things easier.

    Cons

    Leadership in the Chicago Office is Laughable. If you ask consultants that know about them, you should get some pretty funny responses.

    Advice to Management

    If I had to give advise to some of the management there it would honstely be to find a different industry. One is never in the office and the other is in the office but doesnt do anything but micromanage.

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

    Pros

    Great training program. Fun environment. Great team building events. Culture/ team environment is okay (you meet some great people but then you have very cliquey folks). Great first job out of college (usually not many will stay after 1-2 years). Transition out of your college job in retail/ hospitality to corporate/ Recruiting. Liked my coworkers/ peers.

    Cons

    Definitely a lot of micro-managing. Every day, even every few hours. I remember getting team call reports emailed to the whole team mid day to inform us on our call numbers/ talk time. Daily team meetings at the end of everyday to go over daily numbers (# of calls/ submittals/ placements) and compare to everyone else. Extremely cliquey. You always have to be on management's good side here if you want to get anywhere. If not, you will be the black sheep. When you do great, your managers will love you, when you have a bad week or bad month- they will treat you like the black sheep which leads to an uncomfortable environment. Everyone could sense there was strong favoritism. Certain people (the favorites get to work remote on a fixed schedule), even if you are doing well and request to work remote- you will be denied. Little growth room in the NRC, in order to grow you need to relocate to the field. Constant training classes taken place every 3-4 months anywhere from 15-25 new employees because turn over is high. In and out. My training class begin with 25+ and by the 6 months mark, there was only 10 of us left, by a year only 5 of us left.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fair and help everyone in their success at Kforce, not just the ones you want to succeed.

    I have been working at Kforce full-time

    Pros

    Company culture, huge market footprint, advancement opportunities are all present. Being a publicly traded staffing firm gives a real name recognition and validation when doing business.

    Cons

    Commission structure is low to start off. You really have to be a high producer to start seeing the compensation match the effort. There can be elements of micro-management early-on.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trust employees to get the job done. This is a roller-coaster industry, and there are ups and downs, but trusting in your employees keeps morale up in slow times.
