    I have been working at PrincetonOne full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seems to care about their people, saw this first hand when one of our staff had some tragic things happen and they came in and helped out the family. Some larger companies didn't do anything, what a shame.

    Cons

    Wish they spent more time building and keeping data currant. We're using old information, seems like they could spend a little money on that.

    I worked at PrincetonOne full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are currently no pros to working for this division.

    Cons

    I joined PrincetonOne RPO several years ago, at a time when the company was known as a leader in the staffing industry. They truly cared about their employees, providing ongoing training, new career paths and unique incentives. Employees had a voice, and were excited to share new ideas that positively impacted the organization. Over the past few years the management team has changed for the worst, drastically impacting what was once a positive, creative and fun atmosphere. The current leadership team micromanages and operates on a no tolerance policy, meaning that there is no room to learn from mistakes and develop professionally. The culture is extremely demanding and prevents employees from openly sharing new ideas.

    As the cost of living increases, the pay rate for RPO employees remains below market average. Annual reviews and merit increases cease to exist, and bonuses are unattainable. The leadership team is aware of the problem but turns a cheek as talented employees with an average of 3-5+ years’ tenure leave for better opportunities.

    While similar RPOs are thriving, the PrincetonOne RPO division is struggling to stay afloat. HRO Today included PrincetonOne RPO in only one category out of eight in 2014. This category was for Mid-Market Leaders, and they ranked 8/9. PrincetonOne RPO’s specialty is Healthcare, which is a category that they were not considered for. The staffing industry continues to evolve, yet PrincetonOne RPO lacks the ability to remain current on new technology and industry trends, and places no value on employees.

    Pros

    I do not see any pros to working for this organization.

    Cons

    These are people who will lie, steal, cheat, to get what they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MRI Owners beware - This company and C-level management will approach you to buy your recruiting franchise and then get rid of your top performers who they believe are paid too much.

    Pros

    PrincetonOne offers great support for success including the tools necessary to reach recruiting goals. The product mix allows for multiple money making opportunities.

    Cons

    The company does not have a set on boarding process for training program, however information is available for self starters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a proactive planning and strategy program for business development in Executive Search to maximize growth and individual contributor development.

    I worked at PrincetonOne

    Pros

    Professional envioronment, ethical and honest, I was rarely if ever asked to do something I was not comfortable with and my values are quite strict.

    Cons

    A change in ownership brought a change in philosophy for top management. Originally when MRI owned the company they were very good at "stroking our ego's" and when on strait commission you really need someone that can say "thank you" and were willing to pick you up when down. New management has more of a "what have you done for me lately " and "you are lucky to work here". I just could not handle the change. Does not make it a bad place to work. Just not for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was quite clear what my thoughts are while I was still with PrincetonOne and that was one key reason I no longer work there.
