    Pros

    Good to handle H1-B cases and GC processes and very transparent.

    Cons

    Not Proactive in placing contractors. Expect long bench time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be very active with hired consultant so that they do not have bench time. Bench time for H1-B holders is a critical thing.

    Pros

    There were no Pros working for this company. I base this off of the other jobs that I have had in my 15 year recruiting career.

    Cons

    This is the most micro-managed company that I have ever work for or known about. My manager at the time was not only a micro-manager but he was unprofessional and bad person. Open Systems works their people to death and their office at the time was a dump. When I left the company they still owed my $2000 worth of commissions. I tried working with the employees at Corporate and was treated terribly when I could get them on the phone and then was often ignored and given the run around. I never got the money they owed me.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a better management team. get a better benefits plan. Treat your employees with respect.

    Pros

    Pay Recruiters and Account Managers above industry average base salaries.

    Cons

    The vast majority of Recruiters and Account Managers have very little to no drive or motivation. HR is very unprofessional and difficult to work with. Massive internal layoffs. In less than 2 years one office went from 20 to 1. Commission checks very rarely paid correctly and on time. Reporting structure can literally change multiple times within a month. Getting new business is not a priority but on managing current accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit internal employees out of other companies not just hire whoever is in the market and not working. Get a training program together. When you make a plan stick with it. It's frustrating going back and forth to the "way it used to be" when the process was broken to begin with.
