    Pros

    Cool new coffee mug and water bottle. HOORAY!

    Cons

    "merit" raises are a joke.
    Incredibly high turnover
    you have done northing to improve this company
    Managers illegally tell employees they cannot talk about wages or face termination
    Bonus structure will make you laugh hysterically. And this is a multi-billion dollar company

    Advice to Management

    You might want to take a look at PeopleScout, and more specifically the management on the Sysco team if you really want to see unprofessionalism at it's finest, and favoritism running rampant. Two managers and they weren't the two managers that needed to quit. The ones that are there show favoritism by having inappropriate relationships with people they hire, and promoting their friends. It's ridiculous. Don't buy the company just to line your pockets with a "glorious RPO" - actually make Seaton, and especially Peoplescout, a better place. Do something.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and great sales team within branch. That is about all I can think of at this point. Other than after a year you can get partial tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very unstable management, tendency to be two faced to employees. Management has a good Ole boy mind set and if you don't you are shoved out. Take credit for others ideas and work.

    Advice to Management

    Would recommend keeping a closer eye on branch managers and workers. So that they sre performing as needed not just what is being portrayed.

    Pros

    My original DM was amazing. He supported us and made sure we were all successful.

    Cons

    After the change in upper management, the company will never be the same. "Do more with less", "save your way to success" & "I understand you'll have to take a pay cut...." all became common conversations. The corporate neglect to the evident problem at hand is causing the company to emplode. I have never seen a district have so much turn over- everyone quit! Enough is enough, someone needs to step in and recognize the problem or the shareholders are in for a huge disappointment!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at you newest upper management team. Look at the trends on the district and recognize when things began to go down hill...there is your answer.

    Sales personnel have huge potential for high income if the operations side of the business is performing well

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes the entire time I've worked here which has created a low morale and a ton of turmoil.

    Great Management, relaxed, stress-free environment even when its busy
    Opportunities to move up
    Super flexible schedule

    Cons

    Outreach and Marketing strategies are dated, ex: making cold calls from phone-book listings to spread the word of the agencies job opportunities
    Antique websites that require internet explorer
    training doesn't really exist, isn't communicated properly

    Advice to Management

    the websites need a a major update as well as marketing
    I didn't know we had to do online training until 3 months later

    Pros

    When I started with them they had a good solid staff, and a plan to improve their technology and IT practices.

    Cons

    The good solid staff were driven away when the company started blindly following trends and gave it's future away to a consulting group. The most successful Senior management was the most political and least effective I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Find a management team with the strength and desire to actually manage IT rather than trying to offload it to third parties. Don't politicize software development so much, demand higher quality from the contract consultants.
