    I worked at Bayside Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management cared about my development and well-being........management worked hard to lessen the burdens of the daily grind.........great co-workers............owner invests in the company and is involved........strong dedication to culture and finding employees that fit........you will have a voice, no matter how junior you are.........some very smart and nice people work here

    Cons

    San Francisco office recently closed down, so you are stuck in Pleasanton.............future outlook of company isn't too bright, company was getting smaller when I left (company has been around for 15+ years)..........lots of turnover, especially recently............you will probably get paid more at other recruiting agencies

    Advice to Management

    Make a more competitive compensation plan or turnover will consistently be a problem. Also, some in management shouldn't present grim forecasts at times and project a stronger effort towards benefitting the recruiters.

    I have been working at Bayside Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First and foremost I want to say that I've been a recruiter since 2007 and I've seen a lot. I've been with a number of companies and have seen great success and have seen great failures. All of which make me the recruiter I am today.

    Let's start at the top. Bayside has a combination of leaders who have been in the game for a long time. From the CEO down to the managing director, each and every one of them know the business better than anyone with which I've ever had the pleasure of working. They completely understand the business and all of them have the natural ability to present the business and the industry with clarity to current staff and onboarding new hires. They manage us with tact and respect and treat all of us equally as fully functional members of the business as a whole. They inspire an environment of "us" and not an environment of "I," and if there is a disagreement on a subject, they take dissenting opinions and look at them as avenues of enhancement as opposed to conflicts or positional gaps. The leadership team allows you to present innovative solutions for success and applies them to the business as long as the solution makes sense for the company and the client.

    As such, this industry has a culture of extreme micromanagement. However, Bayside offers an environment of extreme autonomy. If you are a dedicated recruiter then management allows you to work your desk on your own volition. They shy upon managing the amount of calls you've made which translates to the amount of "in persons" you've had, which translates to the amount of submittals you've made (interviews, placements etc.) They allow you to run your desk the way you know how to as long as it translates into wins.

    Now, the teams of recruiters. WOW. What a collaborative group of like minded individuals who are all in this business to work hard and help this company scale for great success, and to achieve great individual success. The camaraderie that I get to experience each and every day make my job an absolute pleasure to go to each and every day. We all work together to achieve goals. We constantly bounce leads off of eachother, refer candidates to eachother, talk about the latest trends in technology and business and ALWAYS have each others backs. We're a family. When I came on I was greeted with acceptance and warmth. If I had a question, I knew I could ask anyone and I'd get an answer. The teamwork at Bayside is second to NONE in this industry and if you want to feel like you have a "professional family" then you can call this place home.

    Cons

    The only thing I'd say here is probably location. I work in pleasanton and live in San Jose, and our other office is in downtown San Francisco. I actually enjoy my commute on 680 because it's a very pretty drive so no complaints. However, being in the technical space in silicon valley it might be valuable to have an office closer to the hub of Silicon Valley. Basically anywhere in the 408 area code.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously guys. Keep on keeping on. You're doing very well.
