    I have been working at Advanced Resources full-time

    Pros

    I'm so happy I came across this company. The minute I stepped everyone who was working was extremely friendly & inviting. The team really worked hard to place me somewhere that my skill sets would fit right and somewhere I would be happy. I'm glad I trusted them to help me find a good job, and I'm excited to see where it'll go from here!

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of one con. Workers here really know what they're doing!

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

    Pros

    This company has a great work environment. Everyone was more than willing to help me get situated within the company. People are very friendly and they love the work they are doing. The leadership is brilliant and you are given opportunities to succeed and move up within the company.

    Cons

    Some of the offices are a little bit of a tough commute. This usually doesn't become an issue for me and they have been very understanding of knowing what location is easiest for me to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Advanced Resources full-time

    Pros

    I've been working for Advanced for 18 months and I have enjoyed everyday that I have been here. It's a lot of work and they have high expectations for all employees however the environment has allowed grow and become a higher functioning professional.

    Cons

    Bad snacks in the kitchen, not much fruit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide consistent feedback. Communication from leadership goes way up then goes down from time-to-time. Keep is often and keep it consistent.

    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.

    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.
