    I have been working at Atlantic Associates part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer a competitive rate and good communication and provide very strong placement into many strategic companies. Definitely a group dedicated towards placement.

    Cons

    It seems that they are only concerned about their bottom line. Benefits are offered because it's required. No vacation or holiday pay provided and are quick to cut ties upon completion of contract.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors as you would your employees. Think of building long term relationships as opposed to a quick short term gain.

    I worked at Atlantic Associates as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy agency to work with
    Responds to questions and concerns in a timely manner
    Never had any problems working with this company

    Cons

    Could be more supportive when company contracted to ends the contract early. What is the purpose of having a contract if no one sticks to it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, over all a good agency.

    Not really their fault but I wasn't a good fit for the contract.

    None

    Pros

    Great leadership and team members. I was able to learn a lot about their niche of recruiting. The organization lives and breathes work/life balance. The owners and managers make sure to take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Some issues with getting time sensitive information from coworkers about changes in client expectations.

    Pros

    Owners not looking over your shoulder all the time

    Cons

    Poor benefits and pay
    Lack of respect from owners
    Commissions were not paid out as agreed for several months

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers better and you may get more in return. Work more than 10 hours a week yourself and get involved- really involved- in business development. Set a HIGH standard. PAY YOUR WORKERS WHAT IS OWED
