    Pros

    Workbridge Associates provides really good training so it's a great place to gain experience and good practice for an entry level job.

    Cons

    Unfortunately because most people come on with no recruiting experience, you are micro-managed. Everything is very structured and number driven, yet you won't see any of the financial rewards of your work for the first year and a half.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and doing a good job, The organizational structure prohibits new comers from making money and at a commission driven job, you shouldn't have to wait for over a year to see the benefits of your work.

    Pros

    I came into this job straight out of college not really knowing what I was getting myself into. The interview process happened really quickly, and this being my first job, I didn't know what to expect. So far my experience at Workbridge has been very rewarding both professionally and personally. From talking to my friends and other people who have started jobs out of college, I realized that the training and the amount of time that Workbridge invests in their employees is something that you can't get at most other entry level positions. It's definitely fast paced, but I'm constantly learning and doing things I never would have thought I would do. Sometimes it seems like a lot to take on all at once, but one of the best things about working at Workbridge is that all the upper management started at the exact same position as you. They really encourage asking for help, and I know that if I ever needed advice or additional training I can ask any manager in the office and they will talk it through with me. This job definitely isn't for everyone, but for anyone who wants to gain well rounded skills that can be applied to any job, I would definitely start here. There's an unlimited opportunity for growth and they keep a competitive atmosphere to motivate you to push yourself. At the end of the day though it's really up to you to take advantage of what they're offering. Other pros: -Young energetic office (its a bullpen style office so you can hear and see everyone) - Office Happy Hours/ Parties if the office does well or just because - One on one training and mentorship from your Manager who sits at the same desk -Face-to-face interactions with clients where you meet with CEOs/VPs - Opportunity for other perks such as trips around the country if you perform well -The benefits are above agerage

    Cons

    -It's true that the pay doesn't start out very high. Part of that is a motivator to perform because you get raises based on performance. -There is a level of highs and lows you will go through based on the market ( I think that's true of any sales job). - Kind of a lot of turn over

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and learning to each other

    Pros

    Awesome corporate culture, weekly incentives and you learn the full-desk recruiting cycle. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere in the recruiting industry, or HR for that matter. You get what you put in, but the training is very hands-on and it makes you learn the software tech industry inside out. Great location for the office, some of the most fun co-workers you will ever work with and they take you out for drinks every now and then. Fun, open, collaborative, startup-like environment!

    Cons

    This is a cut-throat sales environment, not for the faint of heart. The sales part comes in when you sell the service to the clients, candidates and sell them on each other. Work becomes commission-based after 1-2 years of hard work, so base salary can be low. Without the proper knowledge of the market and technologies, it can be very difficult to close deals.

    Advice to Management

    Great with the hands-on training, but educating employees more about the job market as well as the technologies would be ideal.
