    Pros

    Great team, helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    The company is small and remote - makes working in a satellite difficult. Work is not very engaging.

    I have been working at Digital People (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Digital People looks out for both their professionals and clients equally. We believe in open communication and accessibility to all. When you call Digital People during standard business hours, someone always answers.

    Cons

    Please do not take it personally but as much as we try, we are not always able to provide our professionals the feedback they need and deserve whether it be feedback on a resume, interview or completion of an assignment. We understand the value of feedback but unfortunately, some companies have a policy against supplying such details. Your recruiter will try his/her best to provide you with feedback when we present you for opportunities but it may not always be possible. On the flip side, we will provide you with feedback, from our perspective, on your resume, portfolio (if applicable), and interview skills in an effort to help you succeed professionally.

    Pros

    Digital People really believes their mission is to find people the best job they can. The company exhibits great care about their employees both personally and professionally. As a result, you feel like you're working with a large, supportive family and I really look forward to going to work every day.

    Cons

    The commission strucuture in certain divisions could be greatly improved compared to Digital People's top competitors in the industry.

    I have been working at Digital People full-time

    Pros

    The company has a lot of great people including my direct team, operations and co-workers from other brand groups. The environment is collaborative, fun and driven by results.

    Cons

    For a new person coming into a sales or recruiting role there is not a lot of documentation so if you have little job experience there is no clear documented process to follow. And the computers are old.

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

    Pros

    Personal growth, consistent and thoughtful coaching and leveraging strengths in others vs. weaknesses. This company, unlike any other staffing firm I'm aware of, invests in their people. They want you to succeed and give you the entrepreneurial freedom to do so. Yet, they're right there to guide you along the way when you need the support. Stellar leadership team! Inovolved and hands on when you need them.

    Cons

    You have to have the professionalism and experience to "manage up" or the very oftentimes overly aggressive sales teams will outpace you before you know what hits you. You have to have the stamina to stand your ground and "train" them to respect your role.

    Advice to Management

    I think they give in a bit too much to the Sales Teams. It seems whenever the sales teams have a gripe the company will defer to their POV frequently vs. stepping back and also considering the recruiter perspective. It does seem that the sales team is always right no matter what. That gets tiring. And, the sales teams are definitely more revered and rewarded than recruiter teams.

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

    Pros

    As a recruiter, I was very excited about finding a staffing firm that encouraged long-term relationship building. I feel that is the best way to grow a loyal talent pool of candidates who are also looking for long-term career partners. It is very satisfying to be able to help people find fulfilling work. I also like that we specialize in creative, marketing and interactive positions specifically, so we can really get to know the needs of our clients and the skill sets that will enable candidates to succeed in their assignments/placements. It was refreshing to work with a group of people who all have backgrounds in these industries and are so passionate about them. The only reason I am no longer with Digital People specifically is that I have moved into a corporate role with the parent company to be able to help with DP, along with additional brands.

    Cons

    Recruiting is a lot of pressure and can involve long hours. If you can handle the challenge, the hard work pays off though.
