    I have been working at Ajilon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came in as an unemployed administrative candidate, hoping to be placed in a temp-to-hire office manager role.

    Instead, I wound up taking on a full-time internal role as a recruiter for Ajilon, and I am thankful for that every day.

    I really do love it. I will not sugarcoat it: It's a lot of work. It's hard. It can be grinding, and it can be frustrating. And yet I never find myself with the "Sunday dread" I had at all my past jobs - I genuinely enjoy being at work. I like that compensation and recognition are directly tied to performance, which isn't rated subjectively - you either bill or you don't; you either improve or you don't; you either love it or you don't. I love the challenge, I love the grind, and I love the work.

    Cons

    I'd like if the health benefits were a bit more comprehensive, and I think some kind of bonus structure would make us more competitive in this market. Also, it's the nature of the business, but work-life balance can sometimes be a little tough - some clients and candidates simply don't understand that you get sick, or you are at a training, or even that you have weekends off! It's important to be really self-controlled at this job in terms of drawing boundaries and setting expectations - otherwise it can easily take over your life!

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, not much, except what I mentioned above. I like this company and this job. I plan to be here for as long as they'll have me!

    I worked at Ajilon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get taken out to lunch frequently, you get to work in downtown, they cover parking

    Cons

    They will start you as a temp. Ask to review your comp package as a temporary worker along with your permanent offer. They will be different - different commission plan, different benefits, different pay. There is no set timeline for moving over to permanent status

    I worked at Ajilon full-time

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money here. You get to help companies fill their open jobs and help people find work. Upper management is accessible.

    Cons

    It is high stress. There is a lot of pressure to hit goals.

    Advice to Management

    Try to identify new ways to boost the morale of those working their hardest that do not always get recognized.

    For regional management- show up to the offices more often to really see what is going on

    Pros

    I have yet to see a pro

    Cons

    This organization is fake. They put fake postings out there to build up a pool. But where are the actual jobs? This organization is one that is very dishonest and deceiving. They are not out to help people. They care only about the money in their pocket

    Advice to Management

    Try being honest!

    They keep me busy, the team is super enthusiastic and they are focused on the non-profit industry

    Unfortunately, their top tier salary is not great and there are no benefits when you are only part-time and/or short-term.

    Pros

    I’ve had a contract almost since I started employment with them.

    Cons

    Ajilon is not very hands on. They get you the contract and disappear. When I started one of the girls that was working with me which was amazing by the way (Kristen) would call check in every now and then. Once she left it was all down hill....

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on.... care a bit more.
