    I worked at Ashley Ellis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Account Manager will train and give you all the tools to be successful
     Work-life balance

    Cons

    Base Pay is too low

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing, mentoring and providing constructive feedback to your employees because it will definitely make them better recruiters

    I worked at Ashley Ellis full-time

    Pros

    Great to learn basics of IT Recruiting

    Cons

    Low base pay, and all competing for same opportunities/companies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, and let employees figure out what sales strategies works best for them, rather than scripted calls/emails.

    I worked at Ashley Ellis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to get your foot in the door

    Cons

    low base pay and commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Pay you employers what they deserve. 30k base is horrible.


  4. "Technical Recruiter"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Ashley Ellis full-time

    Pros

    Stand up learning sessions weekly to understand new technologies and industries

    Cons

    Micromanaged, no room to share ideas or new processes with hiring managers. If you meet weekly quotas they will not award you, but keep increasing quotas to make difficult to meet, driving very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to suggestions and give employees room to breath to create their own methods. Not the same pitch or process works for everyone on sales.

    I have been working at Ashley Ellis full-time

    Pros

    They will hire you with no experience

    Cons

    Management in the Orlando office is mediocre. She doesn't care about her people and talks down to them. She talks badly about candidates and clients. She is passive aggressive with employees, instead of being up front to help people grow.

    Advice to Management

    She needs a ton more training on how to be a leader. Just because your the boss doesn't make you a leader.

    I worked at Ashley Ellis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment with great team building events.

    Cons

    Horrible boss who didn't want us to go to HR or have any communication with them; she also spoke about other employees which was unprofessional; she didn't do anything but micro-manage; she yelled at you and spoke down to you; it was a horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I believe she ran the Atlanta office to the ground and it is no longer open.

    I worked at Ashley Ellis full-time

    Pros

    I was employed.
    The commute was convenient.

    Cons

    Loud music playing to "make us sound hip & busy"
    Open-concept pods of four (at the time)
    Revolving door
    Unprofessional
    Dishonest
    No work-life balance

    Pros

    You will learn a ton. The Indianapolis managers are there to help you succeed. They are always offering advice and coaching. They will become your friends. They always offer advice and coaching. For many people, the opportunity is there to make really good money. You will have to earn it though. This is a tough job. The managers also do things the right way and have integrity in all they do.

    Cons

    It is hard work, and can be stressful. If you are not a self motivated person, don't apply. You have to be serious about this role, but if you are you will love working here. It can be emotional.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. This industry seems to have tons of competition, but they made a company culture that will stand out from the others (at least in Indianapolis)

    They have very experienced personal that make your job much easier.

    Cons

    There was a lot of people that needed to be involved with all the day to day planning and procurement.

    Advice to Management

    Trust more in your staff that has been put together by management.
