    I worked at Kforce as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked with KForce on multiple contracts over the last 10-15 years and always been treated great. I'm not saying you'll get the highest pay necessarily but you will be told the truth and you will be backed up if needed. Fair is the word that comes to mind the most!

    Cons

    Benefits could be better as could pay at times but you do have to consider that you're usually with a sub when you're with KForce and so the prime is often limiting whats available. It's a quantity business but as long as you understand that and being treated right is worth something to you I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love to see KForce try to be the prime on more projects and branch out into full project work versus just plugging holes in someone else's gig (which can be great or horrible! You don't know what that team is until after you're already in).

    Pros

    Great at turning around new contracts. The longest I was waiting for a contract was 2 weeks. They are always willing to work with you on what jobs or experience you are hoping to gain from your projects.

    Cons

    You can occasionally be placed in positions that under utilize your job set. There seems to be a lot of disconnect and competitiveness between the talent managers to the point where they may keep your resume to themselves to place you themselves.

    Pros

    Kforce offers excellent internal opportunity for the recent college grad as well as the seasoned recruiting professional. They have high expectations and there are days when you are in the office until 7:00 or 8:00pm but the work is highly rewarding. They offer performance incentive programs as well as an outlined promotion program that details the specific milestones that need to be reached to get your next promotion.

    Cons

    There are some late nights sometimes. It can definitely be stressful at times if you are have a bad week. That are all of the cons I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Fantastic training and development programs. They invest in the employees they believe in and will launch your career in the industry.

    Cons

    Compensation is low, no commissions received until one year in after that it's straight commission, you have reach your salary in revenue before you can qualify for bonuses. Upper management are not leaders, just really good salespeople.

    Pros

    Company takes care of those employees in the inner circle those that attend their prayer meetings. If you do you're golden.

    Cons

    Not a good place if you aren't into prayer meetings. Managers are afraid of David and those in the top tier. They also are biased by seasoned employees always trying to bring in young cheap recruiters. Expectations are that you are always "on" management tens to make bad financial decisions.

    Pros

    The Atlanta team led by Darius Farivar and John Hunter is great. Once a month they bring us breakfast at our location and they are constantly in touch with us. They promote company events and get togethers on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Really bad package of benefits, few contractors enroll.
