    Pros

    Good if your right out of school and do not know any better

    Cons

    If you like working in a toxic environment with kids and office politics this job is for you. Experiences sales people stay away. Tag line is "We are working to be the most admired company. They are far form it. This is a customer service job and look down upon by the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. spending money on new sales tools in investing in you business. You pay scales are poor at best and new hires are making more that Sales rep III's.

    Pros

    Casual Dress environment, ability to work on accounts and commissions are handed to Recruiters.
    We have team building once a month and Recruiter of the month. Each year we have year end awards. We are extremely busy and most the account manager who work hard are ensured they will earn commissions due to how much work we have. IT is a very fun place to work and we laugh alot.

    Cons

    If you want to be a Manager and Run a Departments, this is not the place for you.

    We are a small firm and we work very hard. Entry level recruiters are taught how to recruit for candidates and spend time learning about the clients. When anyone joins DSR, I very honest with those that come that is not a lot of growth opportunity as we are a very small boutique firm, so if you are looking to get promoted up the ranks, this is not the place for you.

    "Good place for entry level recruiters or college grads, but not the place for a long term career."

    Pros

    This is a good place for college grads to start a career. There is a salary and benefits. You will learn about many different types of businesses and what employers look for in employees.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. Very small company, if the owner does not collect, you do not get paid. There is favoritism. 100% of full time employees are women, many fresh out of college, which causes a gossiping, cliques and immaturity. No room for opinions or thinking outside of the box.

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with training. Recent college grads with no business experience are expected to sell, with no direction in how to do so. Provide more incentive for your employees to work hard. Recognize your top performers.
