    Pros

    There is a great deal of autonomy given to leaders, very entrepreneurial oriented firm that also provides guidance and support to foster growth and develop a winning (and fun) team culture

    Cons

    Nothing of significance to speak of; all issues can be worked through, employees developed, plenty of opportunity

    I have been working at Kforce full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ethical, honest and genuinely working to help candidates find good jobs and clients find great candidates. The Baltimore team is fun, energetic, positive and collaborative. The tenure of the team is impressive, with more than 20% of recruiters having 10+ years at that location. Very low turnover at this office. There is a sincere quest to do the right thing and a loyal client base. Upper management leaves us alone for the most part since we are highly profitable office and quite a long distance from the regions headquarters in Reston, VA. Comp plans are legit, paid based on a % of gross profit.

    Cons

    Office moved out of Baltimore City so lunch options now are limited.

    I have been working at Kforce full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kforce has allowed me many things in my career thus far. I have been promoted 4 times and I've had the pleasure of being part of a world class culture in 3 different offices. I have always felt supported and encouraged and I firmly believe that we are an organization that puts its people first. When I have needed something, even at the desk level, the CEO has been available via phone. That's something that has impressed me from day one. I never expected to go into staffing, but the satisfaction I feel from being supported and mentored internally, coupled with the thank you's we get for finding our consultants employment, has been a truly blessed experience. I can't say it enough - Kforce has put me in a position to provide for my family in way that I never thought was possible and the responsibility of what we do, finding folks employment, is beyond rewarding.

    Cons

    No organization is perfect. Having said that, Kforce does a great job of explaining to its core employees why decisions are made that impact us all. That piece is important because while nobody agrees 100% all of the time with every decision made, understanding the thinking behind those decisions shows that respect is truly a core value of ours that we live internally as well as externally.

    If you get lucky and your account manager hits a big account, you can make decent money here. If not, good luck.

    Pros

    Great pay. Competitive (and positive) sales environment. Fun culture. Great training program. Great technology and resources.

    This is a tough industry and most aren't cut out for it. If you want an easy sales job then this isn't for you.

    Keep doing what you're doing.
