I have been working at ProSearch Strategies full-time for more than a year
Pros – I'm not sure where the person who purported to work at Prosearch actually works, but this is a great place to work. No, you CAN'T work from home and take as many days off as you please. Vacation time is limited to 2 weeks a year until your 5th year. But the atmosphere is congenial, the pay is great, and the brain trust and camraderie that exists between co-workers is unparalleled. The owners truly care about their employees, and it shows in not only salary but ensuring that you have whatever you need -- manpower, hardware, or training -- to be successful. If the other reviewer actually works at PSI, good riddance and I wish them well with finding a new job. Or, more likely, they are disgruntled for getting laid off for failing to come in to work and taking as many days off as they pleased.
Cons – Vacation and sick time is a bit skimpy compared to other places hiring seasoned professionals.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at ProSearch Strategies full-time for less than a year
Pros – Utilizes newer technologies
Impressive data center
Cons – Sr. System Admin has just terrible communication abilities and lacks fundamental leadership.
When under pressure management is very harsh and almost abusive in their communication to others; hypocritically, asks you to be professional in yours
Advice to Senior Management – If you truly want to grow and have motivated employees learn the art of collaborative cooperation and developing win/win relationships.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at ProSearch Strategies full-time
Pros – You can work from home whenever you want, take off as many days as you want, and sometimes they stock snacks and drinks in the breakroom.
Cons – Extremely unprofessional and unethical treatment of clients and employees alike -- they try to get cheap, unqualified labor and have senior staff train them and then price it out at professional rates. They have no structure, organization, best practices protocol, job descriptions, job titles or budget/billing for projects. They don't even have a job order form. Work is processed inconsistently and I was told that it's actually their policy not to check the work product. The managers do not give any feedback to their subordinates. There are no instructions for projects and then you'll get yelled at (by someone that is not your boss) when you do it wrong. They will promise you training but you will never get it. But, bending over the Operations manager's desk with your butt in the air always receieves a favorable outcome.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide feedback to staff - if a staff member does something wrong, explain to them the proper way to handle the project. Provide company policies and best practices. Provide a job description and job title. If you are assigned as a manager, then review the work of your staff or at least be aware of what your staff is doing on a daily basis. Don't steal from your staff and lie to them or be emotional abusive. Form a budget and track productivity so that you can predict workflow.
