    Wonderful

    Executive Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThey have many office locations and plenty of talent scouts

    ConsWhen you sign up with a scout on a temporary assignment and you wish for full-time employment, they cannot help you with that, as it's a conflict of interest.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow scouts to refer employees to full-time people.

    SPS

    SPS Consultant (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood compensation, holidays off. Make you feel part of the company. Present different opportunities, learn new skills.

    ConsLeaving positions and people several times a year. Can be depressing. Not knowing if the next assignment will be found.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's o.k.

    Collections Clerk (Current Employee)
    Toms River, NJ

    ProsThey found me a job quickly.

    ConsIt takes 6 months before getting paid for holidays and there are no sick days or paid time off. No work, no pay! How long can anyone go before burning out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Know what you're getting into

    Staffing Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThis company will give you the opportunity and tools to grow your own book of business and create solid contacts across multiple platforms. Looks great on resumes.

    ConsThis is a large factory that success is in small amounts, if you have no plans on being management potential it is not a good fit. Low pay, long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShorten the work day, mandatory 8-6 is a long day.

    Boiler Room Environment

    Staffing Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPros is that after this company, any position/organization is a breeze. The positive I took away from this experience was being able to get an inside look into different industries to see where I would want to be.

    ConsI worked at the Midtown NYC office. People would just magically disappear and you would think, where did they go? Quit, got fired, who knows, that kind of unstable and volatile environment that leaves you anxious and stressed. If you are fine with day in day out grind from 8-tbd, wearing your suits and making 500 calls a day, then try it out for yourself. Quota rolls over so if you don't hit your numbers that month, it adds to next month so it's like paying off that high interest rate loan-you will never prevail!

    Advice to Senior ManagementI can't imagine management will revamp what they see as working for them which is making money. However, it's known that talent is going to boutique firms and they are taking your clients as well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    compensation package for the workers needs to be improved

    Financial Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsAs an entry level worker, you can gain access to accounting and finance experience here working for different clients in different industries.

    ConsAs the middle person, they try to pay you as little as they could; It needs to have a better system to compensate the "revenue" producer/ worker to maximize motivation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementSend recruiters further East to develop business relationships.
