    I have been working at Addison Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very collaborative environment. Many promotions within the company, it is rare to see anyone in a management position that did not start out as a recruiter or business development position. Friendly competition. You honestly get out what you put in.

    Cons

    Nothing really, my commute isn't great, but could equally be a con as to where my house is.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive reinforcement up!

    I worked at Addison Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Obtain a great foundation for your next career move. Easy company to work for.

    Cons

    The benefits are not great. High out of pocket costs and terrible coverage. Also, no work from home options or flex time available. Unfortunately, this was a big factor for me and played into why I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please figure out your identity..

    If you want to be a young-fun-hip company, then maybe offer benefits that cater to the younger generations i.e. flex-time? The culture felt confused.

    Pros

    Free alcohol
    Cornhole
    Great hours
    Free booze
    Free outings

    Cons

    Literally a sorority and frat house.
    Managers sleeping with employees
    Managers choosing favorites and manipulating senior management.
    Managers lying about employees that aren’t even theirs to get them fired.
    An absolutely toxic environment filled with trash low life individuals who thrive on bullying and exclusivity. Half the office is a bunch of mean girls who work together to run off hardworking people that can succeed if given a positive environment.

    Advice to Management

    You have already burnt through several managers in these offices. Maybe it isn’t the people you are losing but the people who are staying who are the problem.

    Pros

    Addison Group is like that bad boy boyfriend you need to dump, but you stay with him because you love him...and you hate that. Its a love/hate relationship.

    It's a work hard/play hard type of environment. You get paid for what you produce and you are compensated well. Benefits are costly (typical in staffing). Most senior Management are really great and care about employees. GREAT training! Room for growth- senior leadership is always open to chat and help. Always do the right thing for candidates/clients.

    Cons

    You work with strong, type A people who have a lot of freedom. It's exhausting to work on a team at times, communication is often unprofessional. Top producers, sensitive people, people with high tempers, ect. are given a free pass and leave others frustrated. This causes high turnover.

    I have been yelled at, witnessed sales people throw things , people come back from lunch drunk, and other team members yelling at each other in the office. This does not happen every day, but multiple times a month. How are these things not addressed?

    Advice to Management

    Have better boundaries and expectations for everyone. We are all adults and unprofessional behavior should not be tolerated. We do a lot of things right, have amazing people, but we miss the mark in some key areas. I think people should be educated on the good and the bad so I was brutally honest with my review.

    Training and communication with internal promotions is awesome. Might need more training to manage teams and have harsher or some type of consequences for inappropriate behavior.

    Pros

    Great company culture, if you work hard you are definitely rewarded for it. Management is always there to lean on if you need any kind of help or are struggling. They are also very flexible if you need time off or have any kind of appointments!!!

    If you are looking for a family environment this is definitely the place to be :)

    Cons

    Pay check is not consistent because it's staffing

    Pros

    Great office environment! It is a work hard play hard kind of place. You will have times where it is more difficult than others, but the management team that is in place will support you 100% through it and work with you to make sure you get on the right track. The company as a whole has a vision and it is refreshing to know that you are a part of that vision. The banter throughout the entire branch is awesome. You will definitely laugh multiple times a day! Learning and Development has really taken off as they have put a big emphasis on improving it and giving new employees the help they need to be successful.

    Cons

    The ups and downs of the staffing world honestly. Like i previously mentioned though the management team helps you through those tough times.

    -Amazing culture (Happy Hours, outside team building actives, Group office activities, Company parties, ect.)
    -Great 1st year bonus structure.
    -Tons of growth and opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    -Ramp up time can be long but as long as you stay positive and meet your activity goals everything will start coming together $$.
    -Candidate control/Client Control can be stressful. (Need to be able to move on and not dwell on what you can't control otherwise it will eat you alive.)

    Keep team motivated and positive even when times are hard.

    Pros

    Addison shows you the possibility of growth opportunities from the beginning. They put a plan in place to help you hit your goals. The mentality is work hard and play hard. There are always ongoing trainings that are available to you throughout your time here .They have a stable foundation, and show you what proven performers have done in order to achieve there goals.

    Cons

    The cons would be the fact that we work in staffing. Candidates will quit your jobs from time to time without any notice. You have to have a short memory and move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Doing the same thing we have now. Keeping a positive environment with the realization that there will be good days and bad days. Supporting the team throughout
