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

    Pros

    You don't have to apply for food stamps

    Cons

    Let's see:
    The owner watches porn during work in his office
    They Illegally do not pay overtime (ask about the audit)
    The commission plan is the worst in the industry
    Base pay is 2/3ds of what the market rate for recruiters is.
    Benefits completely blow
    Office is a dump
    Working till 7 just for the hell of it is mandatory

    Advice to Management

    SELL - If you think anyone wants your business

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

    Pros

    learned more about interviewing/hiring process, how to edit resumes. etc

    Cons

    not much to add to other negative reviews.
    the positive reviews(from recruiters) are complete bs- no one could repeat those things with a straight face.
    the low morals and lack of respect are absolutely the norm. chain letters with porn clips from the owner, anyone?

    Advice to Management

    can you undelete my linkedin account, please?

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

    Pros

    better than collecting welfare
    they like to eat wings and drink

    Cons

    everything
    low salary
    low commission
    bad benefits
    office sucks- toilets don't work but the one down the road at bk does/computers are slow
    the less work you do the more they give you - then take it back, cut you commissions, benefits ect....
    at one point they paid the cleaning kids people more money than employees
    they don't have the right insurance to place contractors in medical research and plants - they like to cut corners
    a lot of employees "like" each other.. some say they might be having children together

    Advice to Management

    shove it

    I worked at CCSI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, nice co-workers and a great Alumni Group. Most employees got along really well and still keep in touch with each other. Senior people really helped the new people out, they mentored new employees well and some still do.
    Used to get rewards cards for winning contests.

    Cons

    Low margin MSP model made it really hard to make money. The environment changed while I was there, in the beginning fun and a good amount of support, when some of the senior people left the environment changed drastically. After that, no support, no senior people, everyone was out for themselves, they all hid behind closed doors in meetings to talk about staff.
    No benefits to contractors, makes it real hard to get good people to put on jobs while other firms offer them. No 401k for anyone.
    By the time I left everyone was leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the MSP business, low margin, no reward..
    Get your Account Managers out making sales calls, not watching websites. What are you paying them to do?
    I've never seen people get rewarded more for doing less than Account Managers at CCSI.
    Offer benefits to your contractors, set up a 401k for your employees. Do things that make people want to stay there.
    Figure out why so many senior people have left (I think most have told you why), those people did a great job but are doing them now for other companies now instead of you.
    Get some values, re-establish a culture and make it a place people want to work again.

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

    Pros

    -They gave me an opportunity during a poor economy
    -A couple of decent people worked there. Actually, I can remember 1 decent person.
    -The owner (on paper) is very nice but she has absolutely nothing to do with the operations of the company.

    Cons

    -They make you work late nights twice a week (which somehow slipped the owners mind during the interview.) I'm not opposed to working hard or putting time into my career but this was staying late just for the sake of staying late.
    -All accounts are "throw mud at the wall and hope it sticks" large VMS accounts. Very frustrating way to work a recruiting desk.
    -They don't pay commissions until you hit a certain level of billing, which more than pays for your desk and you're being paid an embarrassingly low base salary.
    -They will give you a hard time about asking to leave early for a dentist appointment or the like ONCE.
    -There is absolutely no respect for employees. The least professional environment you could imagine. I've also never seen a group of people with worse moral and there's no surprise why that's the case. I felt like I was attending a 6th grade class every day I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting fake GlassDoor feedback, they're so obviously written to address all of the negative responses from former employees.

    Pros

    It's a good place to get into staffing but that's it. The non-management are good people.

    Cons

    Poor management who only think of themselves. Son't appreciate the people they have which leads to high turnover. Most the positive reviews on here have been written by them to make it seem like a good place,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. Think about how your decisions affect your employees and actually take it into consideration. Your employees see that your decisions are meant to make you more money and make it harder for them as well.
