    Pros

    I admit, when I was there, they had a training process that just started which was fairly strong, it gave me my edge with IT Recruiting and is now helping me start my own recruiting practice. I would recommend going with Veredus just for the training if they still have one, but plan to get out after 6 months, don't try to build a future there. Don't be concerned with silly KPIs, its rubbish. Just get the training, get the experience, and get out. The recruiters are okay, but the Tampa office can be a bit stuffy and narcissistic. Everyone is so beautiful there, so if you're unattractive...forget it, which makes no sense since most of your interaction is by phone. There is a general preference to hire females because most of IT is considered a male-dominant industry. Management is another story.

    Cons

    I’m actually not bitter, I'm in a far better place now and working towards 2 years with my company. However, Veredus has become their worst enemy. Just like the other big brand agencies Robert Half, Teksystems, Aerotek, K-force, Insight Global, Volt, you name it. Recruiters are treated like mules. Here’s why, you have key people with the company for the life of the company, they bring in new recruiters, recruiter’s primary goal is to build out their database, make calls, qualify candidates. Then in a year, turnover and gradually bring in new “mules”. They keep their core people, but replace recruiters are they go. No chance in hell to grow with the company. The company then absorbs all the profits from candidates on assignments. If you notice, they have their current employees all right reviews to give you perception they are this great company. Sure, they’re great for those core staff. Sucks if you’re just starting out at the bottom. The only chance you have is if they are opening a new office. AMs/Recruiters couldn’t hack it in their HQ office in Tampa, so they leave to start elsewhere to be given a shot to grow with company. However, those new offices, like a virus, practices the same unfairness. I observed discrimination against protected class between the Sales team and candidates we submitted because of names, accents, race/color, gender/sex. Oh yes, the discrimination was so overt, that I was shocked and the clients we worked with encouraged this behavior. They have become what they dread most…a high turnover recruiter nightmare. My advice is this, go with them if you absolutely have no other choice, but have an exit plan from day 1 to get the hell out before a year…if you survive that long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother! They don't listen, they don't care, they don't ask, just hush and produce, produce, produce.

    Pros

    Veredus looks after Their employees,verifies information so you always know who,what,when where and why.

    Cons

    Not 100% sure I received all the feedback I needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respond directly to any issues full on, If conflicts occur, be certain to address them to employees directly. example: I should have been asked to obtain a smartphone to maintain contact with a customer that used a bridge call for communications with field agents. In retrospect,lack of the tool caused irritation with the customer.

    Pros

    Their interview process was thorough but efficient and fast. The recruiter (Amanda) and account manager (Mark) that I worked with were very quick to understand my interests and needs and found me a great opportunity right out of the gate. They have both stayed in active contact with me, and the support (HR) staff has also communicated regularly to make sure that everything is going well for me. From everything I can tell, this is a very well run company. Insurance and benefits day 1...that's a huge plus!

    Cons

    Because I'm working remote, the initial enrollment in benefits and payroll was a bit confusing, but it's been smooth sailing from there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    They communicate well. I have worked for other staffing companies and they usually left you in the dark. The people at Veredus, at least the ones I have dealt with, have all been open and direct. How refreshing!

    Cons

    Nothing so far, only relatively short time with company.

    Pros

    Talk about support! I immediately thought of recruiting as a "dog eat dog" world. I would be in an office but aggressive competitors resembling the Coliseum and gladiators going at it. It's the exact opposite. Everyone offers their help, makes sure you know their availability to open any and every question. I came on with no staffing experience not quite sure how things would work out. But I have had great success thanks to the support.

    Cons

    If you want a normal 8-5 desk job that provides minimal challenges, this probably isn't for you. You're success is a direct result of the amount of work you are willing to put in.

    The usual pains of a growth company-- lots of work, salaries and benefits sometimes lag, but they are on the right track to correct this.
