    Pros

    Solid training, how well you do is up to YOU. The market is there, the brand recognition is there, the technology is there. Can make VERY good money and build solid relationships

    Cons

    It's not easy... depends on the team you land with. Work hard- keep pushing daily and the results will come.

    Advice to Management

    Raise incoming comp plans to attract talent to the company, not just focus on entry level people that may not have the skillset to add value early on.

    Pros

    Excellent Reputable clients well respected and most employers want to convert RH employees to FT personel

    Cons

    NO CONS! However, its strongly advised to make sure the Clients culture and expressed flexibility/ demands (if known) are communicated prior to accepting any assignments. Some clients (like the ones I was to always ended mandating Overtime and Extending my assignment.
    ***For the most part, this wasn't a problem for me, however it could be for someone with children/obligations before and after work that limits their flexibility to respond at a moments notice. I was placed with six different clients and all of them did the same thing. ****

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay focused on both your client and staff member (employees) your doing and excellent job!!

    Pay is competitive, good benefits, motivated coworkers. Overall a pretty good company for rcent college grads looking for a competitive entry level occupation.

    Cons

    Advancement is tough, and deadlines are hard and strenuous.

    Advice to Management

    Have more transparency between upper level management and lower entry level workers. Also, look more into hiring processes.

    If you are a go-getter, this is a great place to work. Management helps you grow but you have to make sure you go and ask for help.

    No initial training. long working hours, but that is expected in staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job.
