    I have been working at Brooksource full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    This job has put me in a position to find my own personal and professional success. My closest friends moving to Nashville are the people in this office. This company places so much emphasis on bringing our core values to such a individual level, that it really does provide an environment that makes you excited about coming into work. In sales, you definitely have more of that entrepreneurial feel because you really are...

    I have been working at Brooksource full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for Brooksource's Austin market has been nothing short of amazing. I have received so much input on how to conduct better business practices, personal growth and development and technical understanding since joining their team. The training received upon starting with Brooksource was top of the line, I have yet to find any organization that has came even close to the onboarding process that Brooksource had given...

    Cons

    Although I wouldn't necessarily call it a con, the amount of understanding of the technical world you must learn can be overwhelming. What you put in to this career is what you get out, the more you give yourself time to prepare and know the terms, the knowledge and technical understanding the better you will be prepared to hit the ground running in this career.

    Cons

    - Like most careers in an industry that is ever changing, there are a lot of challenges. To be successful you have to think on your feet and be able to handle a plethora of different situations. The training is in place to prepare everyone for this but ultimately it falls on the employee to retain and utilize the information correctly. - There is a high level of knowledge retention that is required, especially when focusing...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Brooksource full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      College-like office environment, and happy hours.

      Cons

      The pay is incredibly low in comparison to other companies. A 'professional recruiter' makes under $80k for one of the highest roles in the office. They do a good job of distracting you from focusing on how poor you are by having a lot of fun outings throughout the year (on your own dime). Overall it would be a good job out of school while you interview elsewhere.
