    I worked at Volt Information

    Pros

    Each office feels like a family.

    Cons

    New Corporate Management has no heart for those that are on the ground floor. They make changes based on numbers with no regards for the people behind those numbers. This used to not be the case, so it was very disappointing to see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We were supposed to be in the people business, so what happened?

    Pros

    You have the chance to grow and be promoted. You have access to inhouse training. Great benefits, too.

    Cons

    There's a lot of talent, so you really have to stand out. But you will be rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great talent pool.

    Pros

    Small groups that overlap with other offices providing a good amount of support. Management is very supportive of reaching goals that you set.

    Cons

    Base pay is lower than other agencies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roles outside of technical recruiting are not valued as much. Pay attention to team morale and treasure the employee that you have.

    Pros

    The recruiters at volt are alert, caring, and responsive.
    The payroll professionals respond quickly and are very helpful.

    Cons

    Recruiters do not do site visits. Other companies recruiters came down to the site at least once a quarter, but their recruiters were not as good as those at Volt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When recruiters leave let your contractors know who will be caring for them.

    Pros

    Great training on the company and internal tools for doing your job.

    Cons

    Many layers of bureaucracy that hindered setting up new accounts. Changed direction for sales division 6 months after I was hired. Localized IT recruiting to support sales was replaced by a hub and spoke model which disconnected the brand from local user groups which was another nail in the coffin for sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in the large account market which you know well and don't dip your toes into other markets without fully supporting the people you hire.

  10. The Austin Office is going DOWN HILL Fast! I'm surprised it's still open
