    I have been working at CyberCoders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The recruiting platform and money spent per recruiter is unmatched
    - Any tool you need to be successful is provided
    - The harder your work and the more you produce, the more you are rewarded
    - Excellent comp plan, clear path to management based entirely on production and numbers
    - Transparency from the top down - you always know where you stand within your team, your division, colleagues within your tenure group, and how you compare to the most successful recruiters from billing to every day recruiting metrics. There are no secrets in terms of how people are successful, it's hard work and you are compensated for that.
    - Full-desk - no one else is responsible for filling your openings except for you. You control the entire process.
    - Nationwide and any vertical - whatever you want to specialize in, you can put your effort and time into that.
    - Everyone here wants you to be successful, from the upper-level management to the person sitting next to you. We work full-desk, but the person next to you wants to see you do well and will help. No matter how frustrating the job can be, the people you work with genuinely are happy to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Recruiting is arguably the toughest sales job out there. You are constantly navigating through different personalities, interests, and scenarios. That's the industry in general and this job is not for everyone. If you can fight through the tough times, you will be successful.

    Advice to Management

    They already do a good job at the macro level of compensating individuals for doing their job well and providing guidance for those who haven't seen success yet. If you are someone who is motivated to do well, whether that is financially or professionally, you will flourish here.

    Pros

    - They really want you to succeed, constant training and tips from: managers, top billers, directors, etc.

    -Fun work environment: full kitchen w/free snacks, very relaxed clothing, cool company events, ping pong & other games....the list goes on!

    Cons

    -only con would have to be how big the company is getting, a good amount of internal competition

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

    Pros

    National recruitment abilities and an Applicant Tracking System that provides access to a number of candidates.

    Cons

    Focused more on numbers than on relationships.
    Some unethical and unscrupulous recruiters.

    Advice to Management

    The business model works, just not the right fit for everybody.

    I worked at CyberCoders full-time

    Pros

    Very fun company to work for and have the opportunity to make a lot of money. They also offer great benefits, commission structure, and bonuses.

    Cons

    Salary is based off a draw, which is basically commission.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management does a pretty good job with their employees.

    Promote more client visits and generation of new business outside the lead system.

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

    Pros

    - Can make more money then you ever thought possible in your 20s
    - Flexibility (if you're hitting your numbers)
    - Free snacks every once in a while
    - 100% commission

    Cons

    - Company is cutting all excess spending since the acquisition
    - Management used to really care about employees, now you're just a number
    - Some of the managers are terrible in the way they lead, treat their team, and train their employees
    - 100% commission so it's a sink or swim environment
    - Cutting all resources to make a hard job even harder (lack of inmails, job postings, etc.)
    - Their ATS is trash (especially the new Cyrus 3)

    Advice to Management

    Go back to how it used to be with a management team that treats their employees right, everyone knows how much money they make you!

    Pros

    Opportunity to make great money if you succeed. Cool young, energetic culture. Great company events! Great coworkers! If you do well you can get plenty of time off and various perks.

    Cons

    You are a cog in the machine, if you don't succeed quickly you will be out of a job. Pressure to succeed quickly. Limited support, you expected to hit the floor and start billing. If you are not 100% confident in your recruiting ability do not attempt.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people

    Pros

    I've been working at Cybercoders for nearly 2 years now and am extremely grateful that I jumped on board. The primary thing that drew me in initially was the flexible work schedule, the "no micro management" culture and obviously financial opportunity. My first year I did okay, but if I'm honest, it was my own fault for not working as hard as I could have. Towards the end of the year I began to work with some solid clients and saw the potential of what it looks like when you have clients actually wanting to hire and not tire kickers. That and seeing colleagues do extremely well who were putting the work in motivated me to put more effort and time in to build a consistent client base. needless to say, it's paid off, and I'm very stoked :)

    I've since referred several people to the company and they have done well on their own desk as well. What makes the company so great is that they invest so much in each recruiter. The Cyrus platform is second to none, and anyone coming from another recruiting company knows just how amazing it is to have all the marketing elements automated. It allows you to focus on your own desk that much more.

    The culture, location and overall opportunity is amazing, and I mostly writing this to say thanks. I plan on growing with the company long into the future :)

    Cons

    the snacks are swiped almost immediately upon being replenished lol

    Advice to Management

    you guys are doing great and have a tough job, so I only have love for you! keep it up
