    I worked at Advanced Resources full-time

    Pros

    Teams enjoy working together. I worked with some great people who truly care about the candidates and clients they work with on a daily basis. Some of the leadership is fantastic. Those leaders make sure their staff is informed, that they have the support/guidance/mentor-ship they need, and they foster development both internally and externally.

    Cons

    Company is in a high growth mode, struggling with identity and structure. The management's structure, leadership, and team's focus has changed several times as a result. There are several new operational management roles that dont' understand what the teams do on a daily basis, nor do they provide any contribution. Some of the leadership should have been dismissed years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the teams, strive for better communication with employees, hold leadership accountable to behave as leaders, focus on retention and the employer brand. Provide additional opportunities for individual contributors to further grow as well as management opportunities.

    I have been working at Advanced Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Keeps you working when you can't find something better.

    Cons

    The insurance is really high priced.
    When I put in my notice, it was only 13 days. I was told "Industry standard is two weeks notice". I told them that for one of my assignments I wasn't even given a 13 HOUR notice, they should be lucky to be getting that.

    Basically, Advanced works for their customers, who are the assignment companies. They're not going to go out on a limb for you and risk losing their account.

    Pros

    After working so many thousands of hours, you get a full weeks pay, plus paid holidays.

    Cons

    They will try and put you anywhere, even if it's not in your field of work. Also, when you are trying to reach your recruiter, it takes days and days for them to get back to you. And when they do, the conversation is limited. No concerns about how your work conditions are.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees.

    After close to two decades in the staffing industry, I've found a company who truly cares about it's employees (internal and temporary) as well as it's clients. Decisions by management are made with not only financial success in mind, but also the well-being of employees.

    Cons

    I've seen none in six months.

    Pros

    The entire organization practices what they preach in embracing a "servant leadership" mentality, which is making the people that work for and with you, successful. It is simple, first make sure that other people's highest-priority needs are being served.

    In an incredibly demanding market, Advanced offers a fast-pace energetic office, ongoing development and training, opportunities to be a part of major initiatives, and organizational growth with opportunities to lead in the future. Advanced is a place where people are united in believing in the power of relationship-building and the goal to "make a difference" every day.

    Can't forget: company-sponsored trips, weekend get-aways, lunches, events, happy hours, beautiful office, bowls of candy...

    Cons

    Sometimes too modest, I wish we promoted these things just a little bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being our role models and excellent examples of what hard work and authenticity can bring
