    Pros

    WilsonHCG is a great place to work. The company has wonderful coworkers and tons of opportunities for growth and success. I love working here because the mangers and executives really care about you. They listen and engage every worker right down to the interns.

    Cons

    I can't really think of a con. It is hard to feel engaged with the virtual employees sometimes but having yammer really helps!

    WilsonHCG is a company that is growing rapidly yet still maintaining it's close-knit, start-up feel.

    Pros

    WilsonHCG is a close knit community. While we are a group of hard workers, you always feel as though you're working amongst friends who share a common goal. The company has seen a tremendous amount of growth over the last 12-18 months and is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. Despite such growth, senior management never loses sight of employee engagement and making sure their employees are happy.

    Cons

    As with any job, you'll always want to be paid more and receive more time off but compensation and PTO seems to be pretty standard within the competing market. Being an organization that is relatively young still, everyone is expected to truly give 110% all the time. While not necessarily a con, such a fast-paced environment can sometimes make a work-life balance a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we're headed in a great direction. I think senior management maintaining their open-door policy through such changes will continue to make for happy employees.

    Pros

    --Access to recruiting tools, and ongoing instruction with those tools
    --Virtual environment, minimal micromanaging, team emphasis, very little "busy work"
    --Client management leaders made every attempt to make appropriate matches between the recruiter and the client. I always recruited for a client that I could add value to based on my personal strengths and interests
    --Fun, culture-based activities were a great way to involve virtual employees
    --Pretty much the best RPO you could work for...really working to define and expand the definition of RPO
    --Accessible, grounded CEO

    Cons

    --Messy compensation structure. Changed at least 2-3 times during my time with the company. Salaries remained low with little consideration for employee's local market
    --Limited career path, even for a "top" recruiter like myself
    --Occasionally thrown into awkward or unnecessarily challenging client situations BUT was always supported by WilsonHCG leadership
    --Cliquey management, "usual suspects" were often identified for rewards and promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your most valuable contributors at the delivery level need to be recognized and rewarded more tangibly.

    Pros

    Ability to work virtual, gorgeous Downtown Tampa offices, amazing corporate culture, my ideas/opinions are heard!, leadership listens and implements employee ideas, great PTO/benefits, promotions from within, growth potential

    Cons

    Pay isn't as competitive as it used to be, salary + bonus potential (performance-based) - lower than competitors and WilsonHCG employees do MORE for less

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at pay scale - other than that keep doing what you're doing! Awesome place to be and grow - I'd rather work here for less than somewhere else for a little more and hate my job

    Pros

    Virtual Environment.
    Some talented employees.
    Good training program.
    Ok benefits.
    Mediocre compensation.
    Great for single people with no life outside work.

    Cons

    No work/life balance.
    Managers with no place being in the role they are in.
    Expectations are too high unless you are willing to not have a life outside work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at your managers. Some of them should not be there.

    Pros

    Virtual, there are some great people who work here (below the executive and some middle management level),good client list

    Cons

    Where can I start? Every time there are a few honest reviews here they just have current employees write positive ones. This used to be a good place to work when I started. There are leaders who have not been trained and should not be leading. An organization is only as good as it's leadership. There has been a lot of turnover in the past 6 months and it's always concerning when you see really talented people moving on. Not a positive culture any longer. No work life balance- for barely anyone. It takes away from the virtual environment when everyone is working all day and at night. Compensation structure for the recruiters is nowhere NEAR where it needs to be, especially with all of the expectations. I am making a significant amount more and working a LOT less. Disappointing and not a place I would ever recommend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am fairly sure that the CEO is unaware of a lot that goes on, so none of this is a reflection on the CEO. Start listening to people. It will only help your business in the future.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is very good, not to mention working from home has it's perks.

    Cons

    Upper management keeps talking about change is coming, but tomorrow never comes. The commission and pay structure left a lot to be desired, and speaking to my former co-workers it was one of the biggest factors in us leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay your staff what they are worth. Money isn't the end all be all, but it made it hard to stay when I was getting a lot more from my new company.

    Pros

    Their technolgy is pretty good.
    Virtual opportunities
    Flexible work schedules

    Cons

    As a Recruiter, I do not feel there is a career path here at Wilson. The compsensation is not where it used to be. The bonus this year was not what my manager told me last year. Concerned a ton of key people have left the company. I am hoping things and Wilson's outlook will get better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the turnover and hire more qualified individuals. Not sure what is going on with the company at times. No communication. Just work work work. Submit submit submit.

    Pros

    Virtual and some really great people

    Cons

    Salary. Not competitive at all with the market. Sr. Leadership does not practice what it preaches. Wants an open door culture yet does not cultivate this at all. Not professional. They over work their staff-work life balance is non-existent. They stretch people and change staff and the turnover has gotten worse. There are people in Management roles who have no Corporate experience or knowledge. Training is not good at ALL! And they advertise they have 500 employees to clients when in reality, they have 100!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Total reorg, from the top down or you will continue to lose good people.

    Pros

    There is some really great talent at the company, some of which have been huge contributors to my success within the company.

    Cons

    Salary, salary, salary.

    Some management, mid to senior level, are very poorly trained and do not deserve to be in the roles that they are in.

    Some accounts are far too competitive, almost like a "dog eat dog" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees what they're worth.

    Practice what you preach.

    If you want to hear what your employees have to say, then actually listen to them.
