    I worked at Modis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Young energetic crowd, most of the office were in their 20s Met some amazing people Constant free snacks Monthly team building events - Rockies games, laser tag, ect. Good benefits Good work life balance very rarely in the office past 430 Good way to get your foot in the door in the recruiting industry

    Cons

    The peripherals I mentioned earlier are awesome. Everything related to the job itself was a bad experience. Politics and favoritism will drive top talent away quickly So will low pay - between those 2 factors there's a reason why turnover was at 89% last year and it shows no signs of slowing up Training could have been better. They're at least taking steps to address that. Not all accounts are created equal- Modis is a tier 2 vendor for some clients which is a fancy way of saying that we'd get jobs to fill after they've been out for at least a month and several other vendors as well as local branches sucked the market dry. Good luck getting a placement in those circumstances. There was one account where no one on the team got a single hire for 5 months strait. Management prefers quantity over quality - get your subs in or else, doesn't matter if they're qualified or not. No concern with the whys behind the whats. Questionable/ varying levels of integrity - one client told us they would only take clients named "John" or "Bill" but not "Rajesh" or "Bashir". I'll let you draw your own conclusions, I'm more concerned with why they're still a client. At one point a teammate and I were also told to lie to our BDM regarding our workload and focus on the account. I honestly almost wanted to quit recruiting after working here.

    Advice to Management

    In short treat your employees like people with varying challenges instead of cogs in a machine. Cut accounts that are obviously useless instead of forcing recruiters to work jobs that you know they're not going to get placements on. Demand impartiality and integrity from leadership.

    I worked at Modis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Non that I can think of.

    Cons

    No career path, if hired as a sales person or recruiter expect to live in that position indefinitely. They are loosing to the comp and have drastically changed the culture. Expect extreme micromanagement to the point management spends 1/2 their day reviewing and analyzing your phone activity, twice daily boiler room type "huddle" meetings/beat downs, one on ones that are designed to show you how much you don't know even after you have 10 years of industry experience and earned Modis north of $20 million in revenues. After winning countless new clients you may learn the hardway that some companies like Modis have no problem allowing managers to strip top performes of their very own clients after years of relationship building to prop up those they hired into the company that aren't performing. They will take business from one and give to another in desperate attempts to look like they are making the right hires. Sr Management is so far removed the local managent can get away with business practices like this which says a lot about the company. This is why top producers are overlooked so often because those doing the company's bidding are no more than a number on a spreadsheet. Turnover is so constant your team is changing every 3 to 6 months and most look at eachother from a competitive point of view resulting in bad office politics to put it lightly. No fault to the employee, this is the company culture Modis fosters. It's freaking terrible. If you want a career, to be appreciated when busting your tail, not micromanaged and to be apart of something where you can have an impact vs a number on a spreadsheet run as fast as you can from Modis.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees produce more. Why do you think you're loosing so many people, seasoned senior people so fast and getting killed by the comp. The restructuring of Sr Mgt was the right start, but unfortunately again you have put the wrong people with the wrong mentality in place and I feel strongly the last few years of trouble is going to continue and worsen until you restructure again with those who have the right perspective and values to lead.
