    Unorganized and unprofessional company managing Google contractors and temps.

    Recruiter (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThey pretty much have nothing to do with you after you start at Google, which is good.

    ConsThey had issues when I started getting my hourly rate correct/payroll correct; they were taxing me based on an incorrect address; they deposited my weekly salary into someone else's bank account; they were unable to provide guidance throughout the interview process at Google

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The best career move I ever made.

    Recruiter (Current Employee) Santa Rosa, CA

    ProsStability, growth opportunity, ever changing job market keeps job interesting and challenging, Strong management offering a true open door policy gives employees the ability to share ideeas, opionins and to feel heard.

    ConsPoor decisions made by "C" level management due to Ego and lack of understanding of the business operations at the ground level. Aggressive growth expectations affect the bonus structure of hard working / producing employees is extremely demotivating. Nelson may not be able to retain their best talent due to demotivating bonus and commission structures currently in place.

    Advice to Senior Management.Remember that your success and that of the company depends of the success of the people at the ground level who are producing. Allow them to thrive and the company will continue to as well. Stifle their growth or earnings potential and the effect will eventually trickle upwards

    The positions provided weren't what I was looking initially looking for but a great way to get some experience and cash.

    Temp (Current Employee) San Rafael, CA

    ProsThe agent that was assigned to me was polite, professional, and responded to both emails and calls on a consistent and reliable basis.

    ConsDespite earning my BS in Business Admin. with a Marketing concentration, the assignments offered to me weren't as appealing as I had initially had hoped. I eventually learned that I wasn't going to get the clerical positions or opportunities for a 'foot in the door' with the companies I am interested in working for in the long run. I may not have gotten the jobs I wanted due to a poor interview, one of the first out of college. But my degree and satisfactory computer skills and strong work ethic should have come into play.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
