    Current Employee - Technical Recruiter in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Technical Recruiter in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Procom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are real opportunities here, engaging and interesting industry, flexible work hours, 3 weeks vacation to start with an extra week after the first year, work from home option available once a month.
    Compensation can surprise you- competitive salary, solid commission with bonuses and a supportive environment overall. If you do the bare minimum it wont necessarily pay off, but work hard and have the right personality and attitude and you can go far.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times and promotions can take time, that being said there are ways to make your own opportunities.

    I'd rather not.

    Former Employee - Sales Account Coordinator in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Procom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Given that there was minimal training I believe being thrown into the fire was an experience that was challenging and rewarding (when successful).

    Cons

    Management
    Too much gossip
    Too much politics
    Accounting team dictates the success of administrative employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment as I don't believe it would be taken seriously.

    I have been working at Procom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They take care of their employees - I've seen several examples of financial support above LTD insurance or other benefits when employees are in need. They support charities, are flexible with hours, believe in family first, etc. They pay well, good perks to the job.

    The office I work in has a close-knit team, most of whom have been here for 5 or more years which says a lot.

    Cons

    Some of the company procedures are not the same in every office, so it's a bit of a pain if you are working with another office on a multi-site hire, but they are working on better communication and policies which should help.

    Former Employee - Software Developer in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Software Developer in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Procom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    entrepreneurial environment, some comraderie and some nice people. Fair policies and benefits. Compensation was always on the lighter side.

    Cons

    Highly political environment where it's survival of the fittest, lots of backstabbing. Lack of long term vision and delegation of responsibilities to experts. Unrealistic expectations of deadlines. lack of structure and mentorship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professionals, not only friends. Then take their advice.

    air conditioning is not working very well, stand up fan in every office
    carpet broken everywhere, office has not been renovated for long time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Procom as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    nothing at all they suck

    Cons

    very poor management, poor communication. they try to screw you over at every opportunity they get. during the 3rd week of work I was expecting a paycheque for 2 weeks but no they only have me 1 week and said this was policy .. what a bunch of BS

    submitted banking details 2 months ago for direct deposit and received a reply saying it was received. payday came and I never got paid. upon contacting them they said they mailed a cheque. and again none of this was communicated to me until I had to call them and chase them down for answers

    Great place to hone your skills, but not a long-term employer for many

    I have been working at Procom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow your career if you can work with minimal support. Some offices have a full commission structure while others have a mix of salary/commission. In general the commission structure is fair for recruiters.

    Cons

    Little aid from senior management to grow. Saw a lot of people move on to better careers due to limited career growth opportunities. In general I found that if you were a strong recruiter no one wanted to see you move into account management where commission rates could be higher.
