    potenital to be better

    Recruiter (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsMedix is all about having a great environment to work in so they work extra hard at finding the right pieces to add to the office. the people i work with really make me excited to come in to work.

    Consthe commission is pretty terrible. yes there is room to earn more but the amount of work and effort you put in doesn't really show on your pay check. it is also a tiered commission structure and i wish i would've known this going into it from day one.

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter commission rates.

    Work is fun

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Great office leadership
    - Fun place to work
    - Young professional environment
    - Experience with all different types of people
    - People actually care about the growth of the office and managment backs it up
    - Medix Fit - 2 days a week

    Cons- Long hours
    - Firing people for miniscule things (not necessarily up to Medix though)
    - Days can get long depending on what you're working on, hard to stay focused
    - Training could be better but it depends on how fast the person picks it up

    Advice to Senior ManagementHours are pretty stiff sometimes and it can be a waste of time some days because it's near impossible to work those long hours and expect 100% from each employee. However, upper management knows this and it's a typical staffing industry standard. People know what they are getting into before they accept the job, expectations are very clear. Overall, great place to work and you get what you put into it. The best rise to the top.

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

    Complete lack of accountability

    (Former Employee) Lombard, IL

    ProsGreat and friendly coworkers, good atmosphere, Medix Fit,

    ConsNo accountability amongst management, extreme favoritism consistently shown between upper management, accomplishing any coordinated effort is a struggle at best and a fruitless endeavor at worst, lack of commitment to employees with no real investment or appreciation, reviews constantly pushed off, no real incentives

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some time to show you actually care about your employees and are willing to invest in them to eliminate turnover instead of making half-hearted efforts to create a phony team environment, which are only made worse by strings of empty promises.

    Fast growing company with fast-track to managment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-The opportunity to advance into a management level opportunity within 9-18 months
    -performance-based promotions
    -Continued growth in both office locations and divisions
    -Competitive salary and opportunity for unlimited earnings potential
    -Great benefits and incentives (Medix Fit gym membership reimbursement, Cabo incentive trip, stock option plans, etc.)
    -Culture: young, fun, but professional dynamic
    -only promote from within the company
    -Mentor/Leadership ability
    -Opportunity to learn more about either the Life Sciences, IT, or Professional Services sectors and build relationships with individuals in these industries
    -great initial and on-going training

    Cons-hours can be long at times but there is usually a reason for that...we opporate based on satisfying client needs so we do whatever it takes to get the job done but the reward for that is putting people to work and making the commission from that
    -while working with people is great, it can sometimes be really frustrating and difficult because you don't have control over the sitution

    Extremely poorly run office

    Recruiter (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Pros-satisfaction of working hard and seeing the people you hire succeed in their new roles
    -its a job.......

    Cons-having to fire these same people even though they new the work was temporary
    -they may set records for office turn over, there was a mass exodus while i was there
    i was the oldest non management employee by the time i was there for 5 months, smart ones quit, the brave ones were fired.
    -horrible management and don't dare try to go to HR for help, you will be fired
    -extremely low pay and its salary so they force you to work 60 hrs plus, i think i worked 70 hrs most of the time and was often "strongly encouraged" to work weekend at the risk of being fired for not showing enough initiative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit trying to make waves in company to further your future career and try to treat your employees with respect and not replaceable sweat shop workers.

    When it comes down to it, the hours are horrible

    Recruiter (Former Employee) Lombard, IL

    ProsThere are alot of good things to say in a company that thrives on and grows young professionals. The people who you will work with become very close, and you learn how to function in a high energy office environment.

    ConsPeople who post good reviews say things here like "the hours can be a bit hectic" or "if you're not willing to work hard then this isnt the job for you." False. Hectic implies that you are full of frantic activity. This was not always the case. Working hard does not necessarily imply that you have to work long, but that is what you will do. 7:30am to 6:30pm. Add a 35+ minute commute to get out to Lombard (the concrete jungle) and you have a 12 hour + work day every day. Even though technically its 9-5, the long hours are expected of you to prove you want to work there. Even when towards the 5pm mark everything Slowwwwwws down and you are literally ticking the seconds before its not frowned on to leave. And then you have to show you REALLY care by occasional weekends. It didn't help the psychological morale that the environment you work in si called "the Pit." Do you know what else is called "the Pit?" Hell. Hell is a pit. I've read they instated a leave early twice a week to work out option, which mercy me would have been a lifesaver back when I started. Ultimately, I wanted to tear off my own face. Obviously not the right fit for me. At 32k a year, it wasn't a difficult separation. There were some people who this is a good fit for, which for the love of me made me feel kind of insane, but good luck to them. There is a slippery slope here with the age of the people working. You could only really pull this kind of stuff on bright eyed and bushy tailed recent grads, but then they do train you well in the art of business and they tolerate everyone binge drinking after work. So hey! Need a job and only a job for your life to be meaningful?

    Advice to Senior ManagementHOURS. Fix your hours. It should be OK to want to go home sometimes. I don't mind pulling extra hours if its warranted and if I do, maybe a thank you (or a business hug)? Also do you guys still do sports updates in the status meetings? I always found that odd.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
