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

    Pros

    Smaller staff means getting your hands on more lucrative opportunities. Work with some big name clients. Laid back atmosphere. Potential to make some solid commissions. Metrics aren't as bad as the industry standard. Overtime isn't mandatory, unlike our competing firms.

    Cons

    Turnover is alarmingly high. CEO micromanages and expects unrealistic metrics from new and junior recruiters. Ramp up time can be unforgiving. One bad month could mean you're out of there. It's mostly recruiting for Comcast and they can be very unresponsive or unreasonable with their requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to train and develop recruiters. Allow for a more gradual ramp up. Don't punish recruiters for the obstacles account managers can't overcome. Focus on new business development.
