    Pros

    Wage is fair, if you don't need insurance.
    A few online tools to promote self-directed learning
    Online payroll tool works fair

    Cons

    Lack of support after turning you over to a client
    Lack of recruiter professionalism
    No follow through for transition
    Benefits are nearly non-supported

    Advice to Management

    Get input from your employees on the ground. Keep an eye on your recruiters...they may make the difference between a good employee staying or sharing the experience elsewhere. Provide a career plan or path.

    Pros

    I earn very good money.

    Cons

    They are more concerned about the money you generate for them on the job than they are in helping you in any shape or form if the company decides to outsource and you are left wondering if you will have a job. They will not return emails or give you any sort of idea what's happening. They weren't truthful in when I started as to what I would be doing. My job is not what I was told I would be doing. It's a joke.

    Advice to Management

    You could easily keep good consultants if you actually invested time in keeping them around rather than watching your bank account fill up and then they disappear.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a recruiting role in the technology space there are not many other places that would offer a better way to make well into the six figures.

    Cons

    The staffing business is a tough way to make a living, so if your goals don't include making a LOT of money a corporate recruiting job is the way to go.

    Advice to Management

    As long as you take care of your top producers you'll continue to see the same level off success that has be achieved in the past.

    Pros

    your colleagues. thats it........thats it.....

    Cons

    Where do I start? I lasted a few months.New to the business.
    My targets: get 100 contacts on linkedin per week.Enter into the database 360 new companies + contact persons within 1 month and call them all and then call them again every 4-6 weeks. Invent myself a job and call candidates offering it to them. Min time in the office 8.30am -6.30pm. Lunch was allowed but not recommended. During this few months 2 people were fired and 2 left (team of 7 people in total upon my arrival). Primitive old school training that did not bring anything i did not know. Basically it was a call center job. What amazed me was that Modis has supposedly been in Europe for about 20 years yet nobody has ever heard about them and there is no business coming back!
    I do not recommend to anybody.

    Advice to Management

    Change the job title from Sales Recruitment Consultant to call center agent.

    Pros

    The upper level management teams and the team members were the best part of working here. Everyone was very supportive of each other and the working environment, while fast paced and strongly metrics based, was always fun and inclusive.

    Cons

    They were working towards standardizing processes while I was working there, that was the biggest concern. Some of the offices were not all on the same page but there were steps being taken to fix those issues.

    Advice to Management

    Management changes at the branch level create a sense of instability. Stronger, more stable managers mean a stronger, more stable workforce - the environment is healthy when management is consistent.
