    Pros

    Placement was pretty quick following initial interview.

    Cons

    I was hired for a Filing position at a company, which was a temporary 3 month assignment with possibility of extension. When I began working for the company and became friendly with the employees there, I learned that Ajilon was keeping 60% of the pay that was due to me, as their commission. Essentially what should’ve been a $23/hr job, was $11/hr, and this information was never disclosed to me nor the other colleagues whom were hired through Ajilon with me. I broke my contract with them and never worked or recommended them to anyone ever again.

    Pros

    Not many positive things to say. The people you work with are great but that's about the only good thing about this company.

    Cons

    Where to even begin. The only reason there are good reviews is because there was a point where management really pushed for employees to go and write a review. They kept track of who did because you had to report in once you completed it. The turnover here is terrible. The staff is all basically brand new. Management thinks that everyone who has left could not handle the role but in reality everyone has left because of them. They do not listen to their employees. They show blatant favoritism to certain members of the team. The micromanaging is beyond ridiculous. They want to know every little thing you are doing. You almost cant go to the bathroom without them asking what you are doing. Forget about working from home. They cannot watch you from home so that is out of the question. The base pay is terrible. They will tell you its higher than any other companies in the area but that is not true. And there is no opportunity for a raise either. Management does not care about their team either. They will say they do but when it really comes down to it all they care about is how much money you are making THEM. They will steal commissions for the employees to make sure they reach their goal. If your looking for a positive culture or work life balance, this is NOT the company you want to work for. If you want to be micromanaged and feel like you or your opinions don't matter than this job would be perfect.

    Advice to Management

    You need new DD's and MD's across all three divisions. Get managers to who know how to lead a team. Managers who treat everyone fair and know how to keep personal relationships and professional relationships separate. Go above and beyond to make your employees feel valued and then you will retain your top talent. Trust your employees. Empower them to make decisions on their own. Allow them to work from home and pay them what they are worth.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! Under the Adecco Group, fortune 500 company that invests in their employees. Great benefits and huge growth opportunities.

    Cons

    I have not had any negative experiences with Ajilon. If I had to choose a con, I'd say it's easy to find yourself working after hours. However, the rewards are amazing as you see a return for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the training sessions going, stay on top of technology and continue to treat your employees well. :)

    I worked at Ajilon full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of...

    Cons

    Job posted for 1 day. Philadelphia branch reached out to me right away after I applied. Took 2 days to touch base and then they said that position was already filled but to come in for an interview anyway. so they posted, interviewed, had the company interview, worked out details and hired someone for a senior management position in 3 days? That's not how it works...
