    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay check
    Great place to work if you are good at playing office politics - you will be employee of the quarter and get promoted faster (although other recruiters in the team work much better !!)

    Cons

    No direction except during quarterly meetings. Aside from these the level of internal communication is close to zero.
    We don’t know who has left the company nor who is joining and why - this leads to office rumors
    Limited transparency
    Most recruiters staying in the company will either not find a job somewhere else (not very qualified) or are just in it for the paycheck; high volume teams are completely disengaged which impacts not only the numbers but also candidate experience.
    No flexibility with hours
    Micromanagement / distrust from the top
    Oh and don’t expect a pay increase - you get rewarded for good work with more work
    Some supervisors have been in the company for 5+ years and still not promoted nor have they gotten a single raise !!!

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaging and less cheap. Spend less money in the latest AI - let your recruiters manage the marketing budget.

    I worked at Advantage Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are honestly no pros working here besides a small paycheck

    Cons

    This place embraces harassment and bullying. "HR" does not enforce any discipline for employees that break laws. This is the most hostile work environment, no wonder so many people have sued and have won, especially after losing the Walmart contract.

    Advice to Management

    Just shut down

    I have been working at Advantage Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers.
    Executive management does care about the organization and employees.
    Quarter my bonus.
    Birthdays and anniversaries.
    Always new programs.

    Cons

    Making a 100 calls does not mean anything if the quality of sourcing does not meet with client's expectations.

    Recruiters are judged on the same number of hires while programs are more challenging than others. Some recruiters are given hiring authority which makes them look outstanding compared to other recruiters who don't. Recruiters should be treated more equally.

    Recruiting tools are very limited due to budget which may impact quality of hires and client satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on improving culture.
    Be fair.
    Recruit and promote based on performance not friendships .
    Make it easier to get salary increase.
    Introduce role play in training as well as staff development

    Train marketing teams better on what hiring managers are looking for. Include employment marketing in recruiting updates.

    Pros

    Flexibility, incentives and comrade with fellow coworker

    Cons

    VERY DISORGANIZED! Communication is at the lowest a company can get. Management dances around vital information and let their employees suffer. No one ever has an answer but passes the buck to the next (unqualified "manager"). Lack of training, and isolating remote employees. Medical insurance is HIGHWAY ROBBERY, you do better buying independently.

    Advice to Management

    Provide adequate training, be more transparent, own responsibility. Remember that your business is outside of the CA office, there are employees are all over the country treat them just as equally.
