    I have been working at AVID Technical Resources full-time

    Pros

    The employees are respectful, insightful, and invested in their roles to help their clients find new opportunities. They strongly value their clients' needs and updates to ensure the new matches are great fits for all parties involved. From help crafting emails to providing extra resumes for interviews, they handle the bit and small details quite well and in a timely manner.

    Cons

    I am nitpicking since overall it was great and complaint-free, but there was a tiny mishap involving email templates but was not a big deal at all and has probably already been corrected

They consistently follow up as promised, and are always ready to help or answer questions. I've worked with a number of recruiters, and AVID's are top notch.
