    Pros

    Coming from larger companies, where the executives were rarely seen- AlphaStaff has a family environment that no matter what position you hold, you have the opportunity work alongside the senior staff and CEO.
    There is room for growth and sharing new ideas is welcomed by management.
    The staff supports each other and works together - even if it's out of their own department.

    Cons

    Better communication about internal changes.

    Advice to Management

    The changes over the last few years have been positive- keep up the good work with employee reviews and rewarding hard working employees.

    I have been working at Alphastaff full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AlphaStaff has been a great company to work for. Our internal team is top notch and we collaborate well together for a common goal: to grow our company and retain clients. Leadership has an open door policy and all employees are able to interact freely with our executives. A large majority of our clients are very satisfied with our services and as a company we continue to introduce new technologies to remain competitive. I would highly recommend employment at AlphaStaff if you possess an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to work with a great team.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, you must be flexible and willing to embrace change.

    I have been working at Alphastaff full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a fun atmosphere. Most people genuinely care for the company and clients and want to do a good job. Great benefits and generous PTO plan.

    Cons

    The biggest complaint and problem is with the technology. We are too far behind in the industry and just can't compete. We can't keep pushing self-service with the systems we use. Small raises and no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to do more with less resources. In theory, that is great, but things are still too manual due to old technology. We have come very talented people on the team and it would be sad to lose them because they got frustrated and burnt out. We've already lost some amazing talent for these reasons.

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had to think really hard about this one and could only come up with, the people are friendly, they offer benefits, and they have lunch catered quite often.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to expectations and market analysis.
    Offer very little to no training.
    Will layoff without any "real plan" to continue getting the work done.
    System is antiquated.
    Sr Management takes forever to make a decision.
    No real room for advancement.
    Workload is not evenly distributed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people.
    Invest in your product(s).
    Provide 'real' training to your employees.
    Don't get mad at employees for making mistakes when they have not been properly trained.
    Acknowledge your employees hard work, efforts, and contributions.
    Stop showing favoritism to your friends and leaving others feeling like they don't matter.

    I worked at Alphastaff full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay with good benefit package. Nice marketing concept with broker community

    Cons

    Leadership- they are still figuring it out. Don't seem to see value in investing in their people for long term big picture. Terminate people without warning or improvement plan. Cold and calculated
    Training- unsophisticated is an understatement
    Support-you're pretty much on your own, but be prepared to get an earful if you aren't perfect. Passive aggressive management style
    I am a seasoned professional and never would have left my prior career for AlphaStaff had I known their culture surrounding employment. These are real lives you're playing with AlphaStaff. Show some respect!

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should directly manage all of sales and marketing. Stop recruiting until you can be more employee centric and support the success of all, not just the few shining stars. Get some leadership training from experts, so you can have a uniformed approach.
