    Cons

    As an intern, the pay was not the best. That was the only downside to my experience.

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel and work with well known clients, good at developing younger associates, make great friends.

    Cons

    The owners did not always practice what they preach and they do not deal well with stress. Talent Plus is very good at marketing themselves although many of us who have worked there roll our eyes with all of the press about best places to work stuff.

    Pros

    Great clients - able to help others grow and develop, the opportunity to learn about many different industries. What you learn working there will be applicable forever.

    Cons

    The senior leadership behave inappropriatly much of the time. Their interest seems to be in how much money they can make themselves.

    If you offer any suggestions to improving employee morale or benefits and one of the senior leaders believe it to be a knock to the company, look out! Your days are numbered and I would not recommend putting them down as a reference!!

    It can seem "cultish".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach!!

    Pros

    Clients and opportunity to serve their needs

    Cons

    Dysfunctional culture and leadership. More time and effort is put into building the "facade" than an organization that "practices what it preaches".
    Client turnover, employee turnover, and lay-offs are all evidence of an organization that doesn't live what it espouses.
    Leadership is all about themselves and the status of their role-- versus the responsiblity of the role as a true builder of people, culture, and partners

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and be honest about your many shortcomings and truly care about more than yourself

    I worked at Talent Plus

    Pros

    This could be a great place to work, depending on how well you fit in with their corporate culture. All of the associates are very nice and willing to help out each other. The feedback is positive and there are a lot of special events and get-togethers to promote bonding and friendships.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking from senior management. In many ways, Talent Plus does not practice what it preaches. Behind closed doors, there is a lot of gossip and inappropriate comments made about other associates. The president and CEO both often behave like children and have instilled a culture of fear among their employees. They secretly have a very high turnover rate due to the fact that many people get into the organization and quickly find out it is not the utopia it claims to be. If you do not play their game their way you could very well end up being fired without approprate cause. It's unfortunate that they manage to get such good people into their organization but fail to appropriately manage things overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new leadership and encourage the CEO and president to retire before their actions result in making their organization implode.

    I have been working at Talent Plus

    Pros

    We have an awesome Mission, Vision, and Values. We hold to these with excellence. We value the talents and contributions of every associate and we have a blast at work! We select our associates with great care using The Science of Talent, and we prove that our science works by having a truly dynamic workforce. I left a director-level position at a huge global company to come here, and I'm extremely happy with this decision!

    Cons

    As a small company, our benefits and pay are not comparable to a large corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think that our Senior Management is doing a great job. They need to find more operational leaders that have outside business experience as we continue to grow as an organization.
