    Pros

    The company has an unbelievable bonus/commission structure compared to most. 80% of all open positions are promoted from within. They also provide great training for new employees and throughout your career to enhance your skill set. The company also operates well by providing great service to consultants and the temporary employees.

    Cons

    The benefits could be a little bit better and there needs to be a tier program for bonuses. The smaller branches that bring in half the revenue or less can earn the same amount in bonuses for the large branches that bring in the highest revenues for the company. They need to restructure that so the high volume branches are rewarded for growth that is much harder to earn than a newer lower volume branch with lots of market opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the bonus program for the branches that bring in the big revenues for the company. The small branches are receiving max bonus for half the revenues or the larger branches.

    Pros

    The pay was good for the contract job. The recruiter was friendly and communicated in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    But as it is with contract job it is unpredictable. Once it is ended, Randstad did not update my status so I still receive their administrative emails.
