Overall, a very positive experience. I would represent Kforce on contract again.

IT Consultant (Former Employee)
Dearborn, MI

I worked at Kforce as a contractor for more than a year

ProsSalary and other compensation were outstanding.

ConsContract required living away from home.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour application process lags behind your competitors. Update your web site to use stored documents. Allow uploading resumes rather than paste a text document.

Be ready to constantly be asked for more, faster, and better.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kforce full-time for more than a year

ProsGood place to get started in the industry as it provides structure and discipline for those who have never worked in a corporate environment or been in a metrics driven role.

ConsVery dollar driven and metric driven environment. Employees are treated more worker bees than invested employees. Process is defined and allows no room for success in anyway other than the defined way.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe consultant care program has more focus than the employee care program when there should be a solid focus on both and at more than just the surface level. People work harder and longer for management that does more than pretend to care.

Nothing more than a job broker

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kforce full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNot much to say here

ConsForget about long term career with this company. Even though they are fairly large company, your employment lasts as long as the contract.

Ugh!

Account Executive (Former Employee)

I worked at Kforce full-time for more than a year

ProsYou overcharge your clients so you can get a sweet paycheck
decent amount of vacation
can take long lunches

ConsNot enough work-life balance (unless you have a HUGE account), lack of training - the training provided isn't hands on and just shows a bunch of power point slides, management moves around a lot and each time you get a new manager you have new rules and requirements which can be extremely stressful and demotivating, employee insurance is ridiculously expensive (I worked here prior to the ACA), you have to pay for your own parking, office is open air and call center oriented so you have zero privacy, managers demean employees in emails to other employees, very surface level relationships within the company, the managers are fake and don't value any employee input, turnover is high because no one is happy, vacation is often spent checking in and taking phone calls, most employees are unhappy and everyone is always looking to find another job.

Great experience to learn multiple industries for Fortune 500 companies

Senior Technical Recruiter (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Kforce full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe executives have long tenures with a vast amount of knowledge to share. Great experience to decide whether you want to be in recruiting & if you can get through 2 years at this top talent agency you will have a bright future.

ConsLong hours, very fast-paced, numbers/sales goals have high expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew hires really that really want to learn look up to upper management and be willing to help them when necessary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
