    Pros

    I have nothing but great things to say about Odesus! I left another IT staffing company where the employees weren't treated fairly, the base pay was very low, and recruiters had to compete with each other to make placements. My time at Odesus has been the complete opposite. All the Account Executives have great client relationships and they are all willing to help in anyway to help you succeed. The CEO and upper management are all understanding of work/life balance and they don't mind listening to any input or recommendations you might have. The office space is nice and big and the snack bar is not to shabby either! All of the recruiters bring a different element to the company and we all get along. I am looking forward in the future here at odesus.

    Cons

    My commute is not the greatest and traffic gets really congested almost all day around the 405 fwy and Wilshire Blvd. area but I make it work and management is flexible with work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Only advice I have is keep the lines of communication between operations, management, and recruiters open.

    Pros

    I have been at Odesus for just over a year and a half. At first it was tough getting into the groove of things, just as any job is. I am now growing in my position and enjoying the people that I work and the work that I do every day. My fellow employees, like me, are hard workers but we have a good work/life balance and I feel like the superiors and the company owner are understanding of personal time. The benefits, sick days and vacation days are good and better than most other companies. We even get a few personal days every year, which is great. The building location is great and close to everything. Our office is within a large high rise building, has a clean modern look and there are many other large companies within the building. the security and front desk people are great and make sure that we are safe going in and out of the buliding, at all hours. Overall, My experience here has been positive and I hope to stay in the company and continue to grow.

    Cons

    We often have busy times and if you are not willing to work hard, you will be unhappy with any job.

    Advice to Management

    I would like more personal development opportunities.

    Pros

    I've worked for several staffing agencies, and Odesus was by far the best one. Some agencies have a very micro-management environment which doesn't bode well with me, and thankfully Odesus was the complete opposite. I was given the freedom and independence to do my job and trusted to do it well. It was also a very fun place to work. We had a great team and the company organized lots of events and happy hours for us.

    Cons

    The only thing I didn't enjoy were the morning meetings. I think maybe once or twice a week as opposed to every day would've been better.

    Advice to Management

    I liked occasionally attending client meetings because I think it's motivating to meet the hiring managers in order to understand their needs.

    Pros

    For an experienced professional in IT Staffing and who is serious about their career, it doesn't get too much better than this. Not having a "full desk" to run means you can just focus on Recruiting or focus on Client Management. For Recruiters, the high volume of job orders (prioritized to keep it manageable) means greater earning potential. Staffing always include metrics, but compared to other companies...it hardly exists. If you're performing and producing results, you're proving that you know what you're doing and you don't have to be micro-managed. No company is "perfect", but what you can find here are open doors to Executive Management, Client Managers who care about their clients and business, Recruiters who are willing to congratulate each other, an Operations team willing to go the extra mile and strong, valued relationships with our Clients / Consultants.

    Cons

    If you're just starting out in IT Staffing and need or expect a lot of basic 101 type of training or hand-holding, then Odesus may not be for you.

    Pros

    Odesus is fun place to work where you are continually challenged while being professionally supported, where you can work with tenured professionals in a team-oriented environment. There is a work-equals-reward incentive structure which is equitable and without the cut-throat mentality found at many of the larger corporate agencies. It is team that likes to win and is quite driven, but also realizes this business is a marathon, not a sprint. You are provided with a competitive toolkit or recruiting resources and they have a well-defined internal process. Provided parking, free coffee/espresso and stocked snack bar in the break room are nice perks.

    Cons

    The work load is expected for the current high-demand Los Angeles tech market, which is pretty high. You can be asked to work on a few non-technical positions from time-to-time, sometimes in F&A or administrative, but usually there is at least some overlap with traditional tech roles. Adequate technology hardware, VOIP, and internet, but could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! There is a good energy in the office and the future looks bright.

    I have been working at Odesus

    Pros

    I have worked at Odesus for awhile now and for a couple other IT staffing firms in the past. The biggest difference I have found here is that there is not micromanagement or a lot of daily, unnecessary, meetings that take time away from actually getting work done. There are constantly plenty of job reqs being worked on across just about all skill sets, and industries.

    Cons

    There is seemingly always a high volume of job specs coming in from clients to work on, so if you come from another company where you are working on 5 or less positions at a given time you have to have the ability to adapt quickly.

    Pros

    The employees at Odesus are friendly, helpful, and all well experienced at what they do. The company culture is positive, collaborative and team oriented and it is very common to hear recruiters work together to discuss candidates and job orders with one another. The company has invested in the latest and greatest ATS system and continues to support the success of recruiters with many recruiting sources to use (job boards, postings, and other tools). Client list is also impressive. Work/life balance is extremely decent for a staffing agency. While everyone works very hard, and on occasion may stay late here and there, this is not an agency where regular 12 hour days are expected. Leadership's strategy seems to emphasize focusing on working smarter and more efficiently as opposed to working harder. Benefits and time off are fair and the office is not only gorgeous, it is in a great area with lots of lunch options within walking distance. Oh, and the 4 fancy coffee machines, flat screen TV in the stocked kitchen, casual Fridays, and car wash service in the parking garage are nice too. My experience here has been positive with everyone - from the person at the front desk up to the owner of the company.

    Cons

    The team is professional and very experienced, therefore someone who can hit the ground running and doesn't require hand holding will do better here. Benefits are fair and are continuously being reviewed for room to improve and to become great.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the positive environment that you have created and continue to invest in your employees

    Pros

    I am a newer employee to Odesus and since I came onboard, I have been aware of some major improvement in the way things are handled here in management, time off and perks. The regular hours have been reduced, the management has changed out and the perks have grown to some really great levels. Now we work from 8:30am - 5:30pm weekdays and there are more great changes to come!

    Cons

    Change, although needed can take adjustment and Odesus is going through some serious change right now.

    Advice to Management

    An increase in training employees will always benefit the company. I look forward to hearing about new training programs being put into place.
