    Continue to expand the industries you have jobs in for contractors in the Houston area (i.e., healthcare, etc.).

    Pros

    Addison Group is one of the most career changing companies I've ever worked at. Some agencies are good at one of the following: strong client list, candidates that trust them, strong internal operations, training and development, etc.... but I never thought I'd work at a staffing firm that combines all of the best business practices along with the sense of urgency needed for success. That's what I found at Addison Group. I also feel like I work alongside some of the brightest and most passionate in the industry.

    Cons

    I hate to say this... but none so far. First time in my career that I am at a loss for words.

    Advice to Management

    Continue championing a "work hard, play harder" mentality. Continue to encourage staff to work SMARTER than they are working harder. Continue to fan the flame by imcentiving the right behaviors.

    I worked at Addison Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a environment open to collaboration and team work. They hire smart, hard working people who want to succeed and see their teammates succeed. Open door policy with the leadership and great open communication. They regularly promote their employees and transfer to other offices and give opportunities to open new offices quite quickly. If you work hard, you will succeed.

    Cons

    Phone, phone, phone. It's a numbers game. If you're not open to making a lot of calls in a day to either candidates or clients and if you're off put by rejection, then it's not for you. The con is in the job, not the company.

    Pros

    AG takes care of their employees better than any other company I've worked for. There are countless opportunities to connect with senior management and learn from the best. The office culture is is a wonderfully fun atmosphere that fosters teamwork and positive/healthy competition. There is never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Recruiting is a grind - a worthwhile grind, but you should do your research on recruiting before making any decisions. I can't think of any cons other than this job is not for everyone. That being said, once you learn the ropes and understand how to be successful (and Addison does a great job in training/preparing you), you will be excited to tackle every week and strive for success.
