Addison has amazing leaders who empower, train, and motivate their employees with reasonable expectations, constructive feedback, and empowering management that keeps you on track and accountable without micromanaging. Many of the offices that have carried poor reputations have made changes, hired new managers, and have rebuilt from the ground up. I am extremely happy here and love the support, incentives, and culture we have here. Internal referral policy is great, chances to advance (they promote almost exclusively from within) and grow are awesome. I have managers and top-earners from offices across the country offering support and advice, which is hugely unique.
Base pay is less than industry standard for large market cities, but if you're in recruiting for a big base, then you're probably missing the point anyway.
Advice to Management
Don't underestimate the ability of an introvert to do this job!
I applied online. I interviewed at The Addison Group.
Don't hold your breath; expect this line, "I wish I had some actual feedback for you". Contacted by a recruiter, several weeks after applying to the website. Followed up with her, and then she fell off the face of the earth after this email message, "As far as [company] goes, I believe that role has been put on hold because it is not an immediate need apparently. The Web Developer position with [company] has also been put on hold because they are changing the requirements" Was then contacted several weeks later by recruiter #2. Followed up with the guy, who referred me to another recruiter (#3). Came in for an in-person interview with both recruiters (#2 and #3), who told me several days later that the positions were no longer available. Recruiter #3 then submitted me at the same time as another recruiting agency for a new Tech Analyst role. Apparently a dual submit like this is not only frowned on, but will put you on a permanent Addison Group blacklist if they are the last group to submit you. Recruiter #3 contacted me about this in a very accusatory way, and emphasized they thought I was "lying" about the dual submit. The Addison Group, for me, was a massive disappointment who provided mostly disorganized and unprofessional communications, and served nothing more than the addition of my resume to their database.
