    Pros

    Talent Plus is an amazing place to work, full of awesome people. Everyone here knows what they're doing and is super friendly. They work in the science of fully utilizing their employees, so rest assured that any position you have at Talent Plus will be a great match.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    The company takes great care of employees and does genuinely seem to care about the well being of the associates.

    Cons

    Senior leaders are to inward focused. Decisions are also made by the owners and they regularly don't take feedback from the people that are close to customers and prospective customers. They also seem more focused on making it appear that it is a great place, versus actually delivering on making a great workplace. Meaning that they are all about the awards and recognition, but many of the programs are really surface only. Also, the company is shrinking and cannot keep customers. I don't think the long term prospects are solid.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in growth and bring in some leadership that can help re-set the course forward.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
