I have been working at Reaction Search International full-time (More than a year)
Growth at RSI truly is unlimited. The entire management team is exceptionally dedicated to helping each and every employee that joins our team to reach their fullest potential. Training is thorough, useful, and ongoing (there are training meetings every week), and senior leadership is always open to helping their team members grow and take on new responsibilities. Everyone is extremely approachable and the office environment strikes a great balance between collaboration and friendly competition.
You work on a huge range of projects, which gives you exposure to a myriad of industries and allows you to become a "Jack of all trades" of sorts. No two days at work are exactly alike, and you get to speak with accomplished and interesting people all over the world and guide them through the exciting adventure of pursuing a new job.
Recruiting truly is a career where you get out what you put in-- activity and effort are rewarded, and you are accountable for your own success. This being said, if you put in the effort and track your activity, success is inevitable with the resources and tools that RSI gives you.
Feedback is open and frequent within teams, which is very helpful for staying on track with your goals and projects.
The office environment is great-- it's always buzzing, you're surrounded by fun and interesting coworkers, and there are periodic office outings to baseballs games, lunches, dinners, etc.
There's a well stocked kitchen full of snacks, weekly and monthly contests for top producers, Jamba Juice Fridays, and an annual performance trip to Maui.
The company pays for a gym membership for all employees as well, as management truly believes in helping everyone who works here be on top of their game (both mentally/professionally and physically).
Overall, RSI is an excellent place to work. It combines a stellar culture and work environment with great work-life balance (typical working hours are 8-5), inspiring managers, and interesting projects.
It's not necessarily a con, but if you don't do well in an environment that is extremely activity driven and in which you will be held accountable for achieving concrete results this may not be the job for you.
Also, this is definitely a job for a "people person." You're literally in the business of people, so make sure that's something that you're looking for.
Advice to Management
Keep providing employees with ongoing training resources-- it's incredibly valuable!
Great job with establishing a fantastic culture, too. Keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Reaction Search International.
It was a very casual meeting with the owner's wife who works as the operations director. I was surprised how causal she was dressed in a hot pink hoodie and ugg boots. I interviewed at the office which is in a huge business park in San Ramon. It was a very short interview basically just being asked questions about myself. She then had me go in to speak with her husband which was also very short and very easy softball kind of questions. They emailed with an offer within a couple days of the interview.
